The bay of Mazarrón stretches over 35 kilometers of coastline and consists of the villages of La Azohia, Isla Plana, Puerto de Mazarrón and Bolnuevo. These localities are all part of the municipality of Mazarrón which lies a few minutes more inland.
There are many archaeological sites within Mazarrón from the Cabezo de Plomo, inhabited 5500 years ago, to the Phoenicia boats discovered in the bay of La Isla and the remains of the Roman Salt Fish Factory, and many natural sites of interest such as the Erosions in Bolnuevo and Sierra de las Moreras.
The area boasts a wide variety of beaches to suit all tastes. At Puerto de Mazarron the beach goes along the boulevard (Paseo Maritimo) and the marina and offers everything from bars and restaurants to shops. On the other hand are the natural beaches which offer peace and tranquility even in the height of summer.
Despite its popularity, there is no mass tourism and the area and towns retain their typical and charming character. This makes the Mazarrón a great proposition for a second or permanent home.
From east to west, the beaches run from La Azohia, to Isla Plana, Puerto de Mazarrón and Bolnuevo at the other side of the bay of Mazarrón.
