Puerto de Mazarrón
Puerto de Mazarrón, Costa Cálida
We are delighted to introduce our latest park on the beautiful coastline of the Costa Calida in Murcia. The park is sheltered by the foothills of the Sierra de la Almenera and is ideally located by the sea and just a short distance from the popular town of Puerto de Mazarron – with its impressive thirty-five kilometre stretch of coastline of coves and beautiful Blue Flag beaches. Murcia Airport is less than an hour’s drive away and the drive to Alicante Airport takes approximately 1 hour 45 mins.
The impressive facilities of the park include a swimming pool, spa and warm thermal pool with mineral-rich water sourced from an underground spring. The park is located by the beach and boasts a bar, shop, laundrette and children’s play area, Wi-Fi is available, pets are welcome and subletting is permitted. Horse riding and cycle hire are available locally and it’s just a five-minute walk to the nearest bus stop and a short 20-minute bus journey to Puerto de Mazarron.
The seaside resort of Puerto de Mazarron has shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, banks, medical facilities, a daily morning indoor market and a weekly Sunday morning open-air market. There are many opportunities for sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and scuba diving and the town is famous for its local seafood dishes – mouth-watering local dishes include bonito fish with noodles, peppers, garlic, sauté tomatoes and aniseed or Mazarrón sea bass oven baked with pepper, potatoes, tomatoes, dressed with pine nuts and speciality rice with lobster. Places of interest include a 1st-century Roman villa and the Barco Fenicio Centre which showcases a wide range of ceramics found when two 7th century ships were found buried a few miles from the coast. A few miles further along the coast is the not to be missed Ciudad Encanta (enchanted city) – behind the main beach at Bolnuevo – where the rock has eroded over thousands of years and created weird and gravity-defying shapes.
The historic city and port of Cartagena is just a 30-minute drive, the nearest water park is just over an hour away and the whitewashed hilltop village of Mojacar with its pretty buildings and winding streets can be reached in one and a half hours (toll road). Much closer to the park are the Cabo Tinoso Guns – huge Vickers naval guns located on the Cabo Tinoso Mountain fort and built after the civil war to help protect Cartagena from attack. The guns are amazing, the views are spectacular and the architecture bizarre (with a hint of Disney!) – but the total lack of facilities and the hair-raising drive might dampen enthusiasm!
Caravans in the Sun has a full range of new and resale mobile homes available which are suitable for this park. We can supply any make and model of mobile home including Delta, Willerby, Pemberton, Victory, ABI, Swift, BK, Regal, Tingdene and IRM to name a few, if your choice is not listed please contact us for an accurate sited price.

Arrange a viewing
We have 2 options available on this mobile home park. Option 1 – 2 nights accommodation in a hotel with a tour of the park, the viewing of mobile homes (where available), tour of local area and possible collection from Bordeaux airport. Alternatively, option 2 – you can make an appointment to be shown around the park and the homes available during a day visit.
Please note: Brand new mobile homes are not already sited on the mobile home park, these models must be viewed in the UK either prior to, or after your park visit. Please call us if you are interested in viewing a new mobile home, we will locate your requested make/model of home on a showground in the UK, trying to provide a location as close to you as we possibly can. Any resale mobile homes we may have listed on the website are situated on the park and will be available to view with your appointment.
Viewing trip costs will be refunded up to a maximum of £150 if you proceed to purchase a brand new mobile home (excludes pre-owned resale homes). Your accommodation invoice or flight receipt will be required for the credit adjustment and will be shown as a credit on your final invoice. The cost is not redeemable in conjunction with any other special offer, price reduction, discounts or promotions.
Your viewing trip starts when you meet up with our customer service team at Bordeaux airport or at your hotel in Périgueux where you can check-in and make the arrangements to view the park and the local area the following day. You will now be able to relax for the rest of the day/evening. If required our team can inform you of the local area, the location of amenities, restaurants and answer any initial questions you may have.
The next day they will show you around the site and answer any further questions you may have. You may then want to explore the surrounding towns and villages, take a drive around the local area or visit some of the local attractions. If you would like to take a drive and explore yourself then our team will always be on hand for advice, directions and any other information you may require.
That night you get to relax in your hotel again before heading back to the airport for your return flight home. You may wish to return to the park the following day for a final look before flying back, this is fine and our team will be available to take you back for a second look.
You contact our office with your planned travel arrangements and day of arrival with an approximate time for when you would like to view the park. We then make the arrangement for you to come and view the park and homes (where applicable). Unfortunately an appointment is necessary to view the park as this is a residential style community and we like to keep disruption to home owners to a minimum. We do not employ high pressure sales teams and at no time during the visit will you be under any pressure or obligation to purchase. We believe that the product, once seen sells itself and if you are interested, you will contact us to complete the purchase. We will then ensure that you are given our full assistance and guide you through your purchase if required.
If required our team can inform you of the local area, the location of amenities, restaurants etc. and answer any initial questions you may have, we can also recommend a local hotel if you wish to stay local to the park for a couple of nights.
Your travel arrangements are booked in conjunction with our UK office subject to availability. This will be coordinated with our customer service team in France.
