You won't be near, within driving distance or a short way from town at Camping San Javier in Spain's Murcia province, as this splendid site is right among the shopping centres, supermarkets and street markets of San Javier's urban settlement. And if you seek the San Javier sands or other celebrated spots of Murcia and the Costa Cálida coast? The local bus stop is 50 metres from the site entrance.
Pack the sunscreen and the swimwear: Camping San Javier is in sunny Mar Menor, a region with a year-round average temperature of 22C° and bright times for almost every day of the year. The beaches of Mar Menor are three kilometres from the site; within 10, you can reach the popular place of Lo Pagan, famed for its therapuetic mud baths. (If you're in a dither about what to do, the friendly site staff can give you all the info you need about where to head first.)
Facilities on site include a spectacular outdoor pool, with big waterslide and two separate areas, one for babies and kids to splash safely and one for more peaceful pool times. A bar is next to the pool, for appetisers, fruit, mojitos and other goodies, served during the day or later under the moonlight: both much recommended...
Yet another bar serves snacks and cold drinks, while the restaurant dishes up local and international dishes from seasonal and a la carte menus. There's a barbecue area too if you want to bring foodie bits back from town: again: all options here fully recommended…
If you do decide to get active near these beaut beaches and that fab pool, the site sports area has a cardio circuit, and multisports court for all sorts of games including basketball, padel tennis, football and pétanque. Camping San Javier also has a playground – as it's not a relaxing hol unless the kids are sorted too.
Summer evenings see entertainment of all sorts, such as live music, dance nights, fancy dress and magic; during the day, pick from a wide range of active and arty stuff including sports tournaments and culinary competitions. The site has wifi hotspots too, and a library with books in Spanish and in English.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

This lovely land is a short bus ride from the beaches of Mar Menor, a sizeable chunk of Spanish coast making up Europe's biggest saltwater lagoon. It's known for its warm, clear and calm waters, rich in salts and minerals and popular with watersporters; if you fancy delving into the healthy activities of the area, the famed mud baths of Lo Pagan are within 15 minutes' drive.
Several walking routes and mountain hiking trails are in the area if your tastes tend towards the more active, or you could take to the waters for sailing, kitesurfing or diving with the assistance of one of the Mar Menor watersports centres. Ambles around the protected wetlands of the Salinas and Arenales of San Pedro del Pinatar are to Mar Menor's north.
Also around, and also recommended, are the free guided tours and big Wednesday market of seaside town Santiago de la Ribera, 15 minutes away by bus, and more free tours and a Monday market at San Pedro del Pinatar, half an hour by bus or 15 minutes by car. The latter is also the tourist and information point for the Salinas de San Pedro Regional Park: twitchers, your birdwatching territory is here.
Back in town, San Javier has become quite the festival spot in recent years, holding the International Jazz Festival and the San Javier Festival of Theatre, Music and Dance among others: ask the site team for details of what's on during your stay.
