The name Los Alcázares comes from the Arabic “Al Kazar”, which means palace or noble country house. The Muslims and Moorish living in the Iberian peninsula were the first to exploit the outstanding therapeutic properties of the waters of Mar Menor, drawing inspiration from the tradition of the ancient Roman spas. The return of the Christian culture brought about the development of Los Alcázares as a fishing harbour which, given its strategic location in the bay, offered safe mooring to the fishing fleet entering the Mar Menor through the river mouth of La Manga. The characteristics of Mar Menor, one of the largest salt water lagoons in the world, together with its seafaring traditions, make it stand out as a point of national interest for water sports. The CAR -from the Spanish Centro de Alto Rendimiento– of Los Narejos is a national training centre for water sports well-known all over Europe.
The pleasant climate of this area in southern Spain, known as Costa Cálida, makes any time of year the perfect time to enjoy a stay in this holiday resort located within Los Narejos development, in Los Alcázares: beachscapes and tranquil waters with an average temperature that never drops below 18ºC.
