As an interesting piece of trivia Greece also has a village called Roda, on the north coast of the island of Corfu, and it was designed for tourism becoming a "ghost town" over the winter.
The Roda we will be talking about here is a small village in the municipality of San Javier, Murcia in this great part of Spain also known as the Costa Calida, meaning the Warm Coast.
The village benefits from an elevated position which ensures panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and mountains, the nearby coastal town of Los Alcazares and across the lagoon to the La Manga strip. Mar Menor, a warm and attractive natural lagoon, with its great beaches and all the facilities of a coastal town is only a few minutes away, giving the village of Roda a privileged position which combines the tranquillity of a rural setting with the benefits of a close popular tourist destination.
Roda is located 2 minutes from the town of Los Alcazares, 5 minutes from the beaches of the Mar Menor, 10 minutes from San Javier airport, 20 minutes from Cartagena and Murcia, 40 minutes from Alicante and only 500 metres from the 18 hole course designed by Dave Thomas at Roda Golf.
Architecturally the town is recreating the essence of an old Spanish village with all the charm of a residential area several centuries old, whilst incorporating all the features of modern living.
The average annual temperature in the area is 18 degrees, with mild winters when temperature does not drop below 10 degrees C. making Roda and the whole region an all year round destination.
Roda is traditionally an agricultural village and it mostly had stayed agricultural to this day producing a wide variety of crops like: peppers, courgettes, melons, lettuces as well as citrus. Brought about by the rapid development as a tourist destination of the nearby Mar Menor, a new activity has come to complete the agricultural specialization of the area - tourism. With its proximity to the Murcia–San Javier Airport and the facilities and beaches of the Mar Menor, Roda offers a quiet country location for residential development that has turned out to be quite popular. The village is now home to a multinational population occupying the residential and golf developments that were especially designed to satisfy the taste of international clients.
