La Azohia, less than a half hour drive from the historic city of Cartagena, is a small unspoilt fishing village on the Costa Calida in Murcia. It is a charming resort offering a level of peace and tranquillity that only a small traditional village can give. The sandy beaches shelve gently into the sea offering ideal conditions for families with young children. There are a limited number of facilities but they are sufficient for holiday needs. La Azohia holidays promise warm summer sun and total relaxation.
Those seeking a relaxing holiday in the sun need look no further than La Azohia. It is a traditional fishing village where the pace of life is slow, where the sand is soft and inviting and the waters are clear and warm. The waters offer ideal conditions for scuba diving. There is a range of recreational facilities in the area including golf and horse riding.
La Azohia is popular with families, especially those with young children, and also with couples of all ages who are looking for a place to relax and forget the worries of home.
Although La Azohia is a year round holiday venue with an average temperature of twenty degrees, the summer months are the most popular time to visit with guaranteed sunshine and warm seas. Many visitors however, enjoy escaping from the dark dreary days of a typical British winter to La Azohia’s welcoming coast.
La Azohia is an old Spanish fishing village that has lost none of its traditional charm. Lying a short drive from Cartagena on the coast of Murcia, La Azohia is the perfect place to relax by the sea and escape from the pressures of twenty-first century living. Its long swathes of soft sand beckon beach lovers and sand sculpturs alike. The sand slopes gently into the sea providing safe bathing for children and less confident swimmers. The clarity of the water is ideal for scuba diving and there is a diving school in the area. Nearby beaches offer a greater variety of water sports. Views from the watch tower of Santa Elena, built to alert the population of imminent attack by pirates, are stunning. The Sierra Espuna nature park, backed by pine clad hills, can be explored on foot, by bicycle or on horseback.
Since La Azohia is not a destination for package holidays there are no huge hotel complexes and much of the accommodation is in private villas and self-catering apartments. Shopping is fairly limited and nightlife is subdued.
Those who wish to combine lazy days on the beach with a little cultural sightseeing can make the short journey to Cartagena where there are many ancient remains and fine building
La Azohia nightlife is very low-key reflecting the resort’s popularity with families and couples. Evenings are spent strolling through the streets and along the waterfront enjoying a meal and a drink in the company of friends.
La Azohia has a limited number of shops with small supermarkets providing holiday provisions and of course gift and souvenirs. Cartagena is less than thirty minutes away and here you will find a wide range of shops from department stores to specialist shops and designer boutiques. The city also has a fairly new shopping mall, Parque Mediterraneo, on the outskirts of the town where there are many of the multinational fashion chains and well known High Street stores. The old town in Cartagena has many quaint tourist shops where you can buy the usual gifts and souvenirs. Popular purchases include leather goods, pottery, embroidered linens and lace, as well as basket ware and jewellery.
La Azohia has a small number of bars and restaurants serving a variety of cuisine that caters well for the holidaymaker. There is a predominance of local dishes with an abundance of fish dishes included in menus. A good way to sample Spanish food is to order a plate of tapas which consists of a medley of bite-sized dishes. Tapas are also ideal for filling the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner, which is served later in Spain than at home. Spanish wines are pleasing to both the palate and the pocket.
Children are always made welcome in Spanish restaurants
