Aguilas is a fairly large coastal town (population about 35,000) on the Costa Calida in south-east Spain. It has an extensive coastline, some 28 kilometres, and is located in the Murcia region. Historical sites and attractions include the 18th century San Juan Castle, itself built on the site of a 16th century fort. The town has a railways station which connects it to Murcia City among other places. This is located about a 100 kilometres north with the historic Roman town of Cartagena being about halfway between the two.
The main attraction of the town for many expatriates are the wonderful beaches, over 30 dotted along Aguila’s long stretch of coast. As with almost all Spanish municipalities there is a lively programme of fiestas and other events which the local town hall or tourist office will be happy to give you more information on. There are also numerous places to eat and drink, often, though not exclusively, offering traditional Mediterranean cuisine.
The region of Murcia is on the Costa Calida which, appropriately, means “warm coast”, reflecting both the climate and warm waters of the area. It is a popular area for Europeans to live and visit, offering beautiful beaches and mountains for activities ranging from water sports to hiking.
The Costa Calida and Costa Blanca both have a number of golf courses, ranging from international standard to those more suitable for beginners. The area is perfect for families, retirees and younger people starting out to make a new life, offering something for everyone, both inland and on the coast.
