Flights to Murcia for Sight Seeing
On the Spanish Coast, Murcia is a beautiful destination for sightseeing as well as sunbathing. With Jet2.com's cheap flights to Murcia you can visit a range of great places from the relaxing Costa Calida ("the warm coast"), with beautiful sandy beaches to Mar Menor. This is the worlds' largest salt-water lagoon and said to be 5 degrees warmer than the sea! There are many fantastic watersports to try out here including sailing and windsurfing. If watersports don't 'float your boat' then why not try out the cycling... or head for the bar!!
Murcia is a great mix of the old and new with a modern city full of shops, cafes and bars, La Traperia has some of the best stores if you fancy some holiday shopping as well as a range of fantastic restaurants to eat out in the evening. Try your luck at Murcia's Casino also found along this main street. A popular place to visit is the 18th century square La Glorieta situated in the centre of Murcia and the magnificent architecture of the Cathedral of Santa Maria always attracts visitors. The Museum de la Ciudad featuring historical artifacts of Murcia is worth a visit, as is the Museo de la Ciencia y el Agua which has interactive exhibits.
Further a field is La Manga, a trendy resort which lies only 20 minutes away from the airport. This is where sport stars and sun seekers come together in one complex, which is so big it is to be compared in size with Monaco! La Manga has three world class golf courses, a tennis centre, not to name the shops and other recreational facilities... all of this in the surrounds of palm trees... a little piece of heaven!!

Customer Comments for Murcia
"We recently went to Murcia for the first time this May Bank Holiday weekend, which was a perfect time to go as a couple: because it wasn't high-season, the atmosphere was very relaxed but with still plenty to do...
Two restaurants I would recommend are Puccini's: an Italian chain with very tasty food (there are 2 along the Orihuela Costa), and Gandhi; a very authentic & reasonably priced Indian restaurant. We also had a round of golf at Las Ramblas, also on the Orihuela Costa, which had beautiful scenery and impeccable greens - worth a visit for the avid golfer!"
