The beach at La Azohia is gently shelving with shallow, warm waters & a beautiful new palm-lined promenade stretching two miles ensuring a memorable evening stroll along the sea front as the sun sets across the bay. Much prized by the Spanish the sea here is considered amongst the clearest in Spain & has been granted blue flag status for many years with the deeper waters at Cabo Tinoso known by divers far & wide for their colourful sea beds & by the local fishermen who still bring in their daily tuna catches to the quaint marina.
The Costa Calida is a fairly undiscovered part of south-east Spain. La Azohia is a totally unspoilt idyllic Spanish fishing village on the Costa Calida. It lies at the sheltered end of the large Mazarron bay, just 10 minutes drive away from Mazarron with its wealth of shops, restaurants, and a wonderful large sandy beach. It is 20 minutes drive away from the large town of Cartagena, where Hannibal landed with his elephants. There are no organised tour operators here, and even in the height of the season you will be able to find virtually empty beaches in La Azohia and around the bay of Mazarron. The beaches in this area of the Costa Calida are fantastic - plenty of large, fine sandy beaches (including a number of blue flag beaches) for the perfect beach holiday.
Rest, relax … there is almost no pace of life here. For the more energetic, there is swimming, windsurfing, diving at all levels .La Azohia is a very well-known place for diving, sailing, boat cruises, golf, biking, river rafting, tennis, trekking.
Puerto de Mazarron
Just a short drive away is Puerto de Mazarron, with many bars, restaurants, super markets, banks, a children’s play ride which looks lovely lit up in the evening.
Further along the main road is also a small fair and local stalls which are opened in the evening.
The port of Mazarron has a Sunday Market, this is lovely, it has so much local flavour just like old Spain.
The Beach at Mazarron is beautiful, very large and flat and sandy with children’s park and swings, also lots of restaurants and bars, and if you like bowls there is a lovely club there which you can go in as guest.
For the golfers there are lots of places to go, there are three new 18 hole clubs between Cartagena and San Javier airport.
There is a 9 hole course at Campersol 20mins away the other side of Mazarron town.
Cartagena is about 20 minutes away and has some lovely shops, but the old town and port are worth the visit and it has very interesting and well conserved archaeological rest from Romans, fenicios and Carthaginians. The food is fantastic, and its people pleasant. Summer here it’s fantastic, but there is no word to describe how marvellous it is to spend you winter time here with no noise and an average temperature of 10-20 ºC
The Costa Calida and local climate around La Azohia puts claim to no less than 300 days of sunshine a year. Check for availability and book your stay on-line. Please note it is a no smoking apartment that pets are not allowed.
Due to economics the minimum booking of the apartment is 1 week , Aug 2 weeks
Payment in euro's or stirling can be made by credit card via our web site :-
There are 4 dive schools in the immediate vicinity and the diving is reputed to be the 5th best in the world
A round of golf can be had within a 30-minute drive.
The Sierra Espuna is a beautiful national park. This is lovely days outing by car taking in stunning views and stopping at a restaurant for lunchtime “Del Dia “
Cartagena is only 20 mins away with history and shopping.
Have now stayed in the area on a number of occasions and absolutely love the location. Beaches are wonderful, with local shops and restaurants. We made a pact that we would never return to a resort because we have so many places we still want to visit, but have been hooked on the area since our first time.
We have also stayed at The Escape previously and it has everything we wanted and more. The living accommodation is modern, comfortable, & has everything required, (including wifi & UK TV for the guests who need to keep in touch! The roof terrace & barbecue were used on a daily basis and the views are spectacular!
On a sad note, the first time we were there we made daily use of the bikes the owner Robert, kindly made available to us, however on this occasion the bikes were rendered almost useless due to obvious abuse by previous occupants. If guests make use of the facilities they must also take responsibility for any damage caused so they dont spoil it for those that follow.
Thank you for your great review, we do try to keep the apartment in top condition, the 2 bikes will be repaired for future use by everyone.

Hello Mr Kind,Just a line to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your apartment in La Azohia. Everything was as described and we needed for nothing.This is our third year running , twice a year, at El Pinar de sans Gines and have rented various apartments However, we have found our favourite with yours! The layout with access to the roof terrace from the living room was so much better and we used the lower balcony for all our meals.With all that in mind we would like to return again next year.Mr & Mrs WaslinCo Durham
This property is everything you could possibly want for a relaxing holiday. It is modern, immaculately clean and well kitted out for a self catering holiday. The roof terrace is absolutely beautiful and has sea views - perfect for watching the sun go down. It is sitauted less than 5 minutes walk to the beach and has on site swimming pools - 3 in total I believe. The apartment is within a very close walking distance to local resturants and a short drive away from Mazzaron which is a slightly busier spanish resort. I recommend The Escape for a peaceful get away and complete rejuvenation.
Wonderful apartment, fantastic views, great sunsets, we loved the area, we felt really relaxed in the apartment,which was very comfortable.Weather was great for November, we will certainly return.
Lovely apartment, well equiped and tastfully furnished. We had great week, beautiful views from all aspects of the apartment especialy from the sun terrace. Terrific sunsets.
Very Spanish area, quite and really great for chilled out break.

On our first visit to this area we were amazed by the fantastic location and beautiful apartment. The living area is particularly comfortable and very homely. The kitchen, bedrooms and outside living areas were furnished with the everyday essentials and more. I particularly made use of the plush laidback sofas and fluffy cushions! If the luxury apartment was not enough, the views were fantastic too! From sunrise to sunset the ocean and surrounding villages were on show from the terrace like a postcard sent from paradise.Our first visit left us wanting more, so the second visit is planned for March 2006. Counting down the days!Mr & Mrs BriggsNarboroughLeicestershire

We are now both retired and have only this apartment to enjoy, we have furnished it for our own comfort and keep it up to a very good standard. It is in the very best position on the urbanization with views second to none.
