There's more to Murcia than fly-and-flop

The Region of Murcia has long been known as a fly-and-flop vacation spot, with families descending during the summer for guaranteed good weather, as it receives more than 3,000 hours of sunlight a year. not to mention its long stretches of fine sand. However, there is more to this south-east region than meets the eye. You can expect pretty medieval villages, countless water sports and some fine local cuisine, not to mention the Baroque cathedral and other architectural gems you can see when you stay at a Region of Murcia vacation rental. This is the Mediterranean at its very best.

Things to do

Baroque cathedrals in Murcia

There's a seemingly endless number of Murcia attractions, so this is far from an exhaustive list. That said, if you've only got a few days at a Region of Murcia vacation rental, there's several standouts that shouldn't be missed. A good starting point is the Baroque cathedral on Plaza del Cardenal Belluga, which has a lavish interior. If people watching is your thing, swing by the Plaza de las Flores for a coffee and catch a glimpse of local life. Alternatively, peel back the layers of history at Santa Clara la Real Convent Museum, which was adapted from a Moorish fortress during the 14th century.

Activities

Challenging treks and exciting trails in Murcia

It might be hard to drag yourself away from Murcia's beaches, but those who do are rewarded with some gorgeous scenery, which lends itself to hiking and biking. Trails are as diverse as they are spectacular, with easy half day rambles to challenging uphill day treks passing steep ravines. If you've scored a Region of Murcia vacation rental by the sea, most of the outdoor activities are centered around the water. Sunny afternoons can be spent with the family, paddling along the coast on the back of a kayak or using the Spanish sea winds to cruise on your private rented yacht.

Weather

The shoulder seasons are Murcia's sweet spot

The summers in south-east Spain can be sizzling and dropping back to your Region of Murcia vacation rental for a daily siesta becomes almost mandatory. To truly roam the city comfortably, try to score one of the rentals in either spring or fall, when the days are still dry and bright, but the temperature has dropped along with the price. If you don't mind the odd spot of rainfall and cold weather, don't discount the winter months, between December and February, when you can pick up a rental at rock bottom prices and you'll have far fewer vacationers to contend with at the attractions and restaurants.

Natural features

Honeysuckle, roses and golden eagles in Murcia

Not far from your Region of Murcia vacation rental are the beautiful forests of Sierra Espuna, made up from oaks, hawthorns and junipers, provide a habitat for a staggering number of species. Look carefully past the rambling honeysuckle and wild roses and you'll likely spot crossbill finches, long-tailed tits and even the odd golden eagle. You may hear the rustling of wild boar or Barbary sheep, both of which thrive here, while red squirrels scamper along the tree branches. At night, nocturnal critters come out to play and the forests are filled with the sound of hooting owls.
