A little bit of the UK in Spain. Only 10 minutes from Murcia Airport this is a great place to grab a beer and a meal either when you land or take off.  Your hosts Gary & Sue, together with their team offer great pub grub, while you watch a game of football, horse racing, golf or the tennis.

They have regular evenings of entertainment with local singers and excellent tribute bands. Children are always welcome and they have FREE Wi-Fi!

We recommend that you give Time Out a go...we're sure you wont regret it.

El Patio II is part of a chain of 4 restaurants in the Murcia Region. You will find this establishment in Los Alcazares (near Mercadona Square) and if you are a meat lover this is the place to go...they specialise in "Carne a la Brassa" roughly translated that's basically Gilled Meat from their indoor Bar-b-que.  They serve some of the best steaks in town and you can order them exactly how you like...remember rare in Spain is "Poco Hecho"...but don't worry they speak sufficient English to make sure you get what you want...try the "Carne a la Piedra" this is where you cook the meat on a hot stone at your own table.

Calblanque Natural Park...A must visit, its free and beautiful, just before you arrive to the unique La Manga strip you have one of natures hidden beauties. The beachs are golden and the water warm and shallow (in some parts you must watch fir the currents). This is a great place to go and unwind but make sure you take a picnic and plenty of fluid as there are no bars or toilet facilities. And for t hse that like to be at one with natire there are natuist areas where you can well and truly strip off.
