Work & Travel: Region of Murcia

Presenting the Region of Murcia, where Ubiwork offers remote work experiences in both countryside and coastal areas.

The region of Murcia is in the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, on the Mediterranean coast. This region boasts over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, and the warm waters of two seas bathe its coastline. Its coast is known as the Costa Cálida (the Balmy Coast). It’s home to endless beaches and small coves offering multiple sports, leisure activities, and well-being options.

What to see?

The region’s most significant cities are Murcia’s capital city, and Cartagena. Murcia is a beautiful Spanish city with an authentic local atmosphere. It combines a beautiful old town and attractive city squares influenced by the Moors. The gem of the old town is the Cathedral Church of Saint Mary of Murcia, completed in 1465. Murcia is in the center of a low-lying fertile plain known as the Huerta (orchard or vineyard). It’s an excellent place to enjoy the versatile gastronomy of the area. Moreover, it has an incredible variety for those interested in shopping. 

Cartagena has a fascinating history, inhabited by many great civilizations and cultures. Among its numerous Roman remains, the recently restored Roman theatre of Carthago Nova is one of the city’s landmarks. The Municipality of Cartagena is an attractive combination of history, marine life, and archeology, with plenty of museums. Cartagena offers beautiful beaches and excellent water sports possibilities. Its versatile outdoor activities in the natural parks and mountain ranges provide the visitor with plenty of activities to enjoy close to the city.

What to do?

Plenty of fishing villages to visit stand right at La Manga del Mar Menor, a 21 km long seaside spit that separates La Manga lagoon from the Mediterranean sea. 

Many beautiful fishing villages are worth mentioning: Cabo de Palos, with great spots for wind surging; Los Alcazáres and Santiago de la Ribera enjoying the seafront views. La Manga is one of the most popular destinations in the Murcia region. It forms an integral part of the coastline where the gently sloping shores and the calm waters provide a safe bath for the visitor. The area is trendy for practicing numerous water sports like windsurfing, canoeing, and diving. During the low season, this normally touristic area is a perfect place to combine remote work with outdoor leisure activities. 

What to eat?

Murcia is called “the Region of 1001 Flavours” with its outstanding and innovative gastronomy, also named as Spanish Gastronomy Capital in 2020. The Spanish Hospitality Federation jury stated that Murcia is loyal to local products and a solid commitment to gastronomic tourism. Murcia won the award not only for its culinary variety but also for being  “a very attractive region in all aspects” says the president of the federation. You’ll enjoy trying the typical seafood tapas, caballitosmarinera, and the tasty pulpo (octopus), the main course, the vegetable dish zarangollo, and the favorite desserts for the sweet tooth: paparajote, the lemon tree leaf battered in the dough of flour, and the tasty café asiático. Not to mention trying different wines of Denomination of Origin from the wineries of Jumilla, Bullas, and Yecla. 

Did you say beach?

Murcia has many beautiful beaches, above all Calblanque beach, one of the best-preserved unspoiled natural landscapes on the coast. The well-paved and quiet country roads offer runners and cyclists many opportunities to explore. The majority of the shoreline has accessible paths and promenades, making this a paradise for walkers. For example, the town of Mazarrón has striking sculptural forms on its coastline with very easy-going walking and cycling routes. The mountains of Sierra Espuña offer unique possibilities for hiking, horse riding, and climbing. The top spots with amazing views are the valley La Panocha and Embalse de la Cierva, close to Mula for climbing enthusiasts. 

 

Murcia’s has a low cost of living and an amazing weather. This makes it is an ideal location for remote workers to escape from routine. Spain Tourism website agrees by stating that  “Murcia combines natural and cultural wonders to provide an experience that will blow you away”.
