Los Alcázares is a Spanish municipality in the Murcia region, located on the banks of the Mar Menor and at the last census, in 2017, it was counting 15,349 inhabitants. It occupies 9 km on the coast of the Mar Menor of which 7 km are golden sandy beaches skirting the shallow and warm waters of this beautiful "Little Sea". It borders the municipalities of San Javier to the North, Cartagena to the South and Torre-Pacheco to the West.
The town owes its name to the Arabic word "al-Kazar" - which means castle or fortress, and refers to the holiday mansions that were once built by the Muslims in this coastal village.
The Mar Menor waters are known for their therapeutic qualities and Los Alcázares hosts the La Encarnación Spa Resort, a place that charms visitors with its old turn-of-the-century feel while offering thermal treatment. Also beneficial for your health are the diverse water sports that can be practiced all year round, thanks to the warm temperatures in the area, like: kayaking, windsurfing and sailing. Los Alcázares is home to the Infanta Cristina Elite Sports Centre, and serves as a training venue for sporting clubs and sports federations.
Los Alcázares has become one of the most popular beach resorts, being just 6 km from the airport at San Javier and, with its central location on the interior coastline of the Mar Menor having easy access to the motorway network, thus being the perfect spot from which to explore the whole Murcia region and beyond. Through a program of carefully considered, low rise development Los Alcázares has grown significantly during the last 12 years whilst managing to retain its small, traditional Spanish town charm.
Los Alcázares is made up of two distinctive areas known as “The New Town" and “The Old Town", but, in reality, both areas offer a mixture of old and new properties and seamlessly mix modern facilities with traditional charm. The original centre of Los Alcázares, or what is commonly refered to as “Old Town", is rich in modern high street shops, small specialist boutiques, traditional Spanish tapas restaurants and a charmingly picturesque marina. The more recently developed area of the “New Town" was built, around 12 years ago, with the purpose of attracting tourists and it has been continuously developed due to the increasing popularity of the resort.
The 7km stretch of beach front has a very generous pedestrian promenade, with street lighting, making it ideal for cycling, jogging or just an evening stroll. All along this promenade you will encounter beautiful, traditional beach-front properties, sailing clubs, beach bars (Chiringuitos) or children's play parks. The main attraction to this area, for many tourists, is the distinct lack of loud music bars and tacky gift shops which proves that this beautiful sea front promenade has retained its relaxed family feel.
More towards the “New Town" part of Los Alcázares there is an area dedicated to late night music and disco bars, a modern shopping indoor shopping centre with multi-screen cinema and arcade, which ensure that, whilst quite lower key than many other Spanish resorts and still predominantly geared towards families, Los Alcázares has plenty to offer for all ages and tastes.
