Within a 5-minute walk from the beach and 30 minutes’ walk from the town centre, in a charming residential development. These homes have been designed for both indoor and outdoor living, enabling you to enjoy the warmth of your home and of the Mediterranean climate, which is really quite special in Águilas
Perfect for a morning or evening dip. Amarilla Beach (literally Amber Beach), so-called because of the unique colour of its sand, which separates from the coast when the tide comes in. In front of both of these beaches you will find a beautiful view of Isla del Fraile, a small populated island with Roman ruins and an area for dolphin watching.
As a port town, Águilas has been inhabited by different cultures since ancient times, evidenced by the amount of Roman ruins recovered in the area. Its straight-lined design dates back to the the age of the Enlightenment (18th Century), when it became the port of departure for the region’s vegetable produce, mining operations and esparto products. In addition to its seafaring and agricultural tradition, today it is also a popular tourist destination.
The town is situated between two main bays, the bays of Levante and Poniente, dominated by the emblematic silhouette of the San Juan de las Águilas Castle. This fortress, that today operates as a museum, is open to the public. At the top, where there is also a charming restaurant, you can enjoy a stunning view of the town.
In the town centre is Plaza de España, more popularly known as la Glorieta, which is the very hub of the town. It opens, on one side, towards the port, passing by the Casino and the Cultural Centre. The two main shopping streets can be found in the other direction. The following has been said about the square in the El Viajero travel guide: Its central garden is an exotic haven. Bougainvillea trees, palm trees, century-old ficus trees, from Brazil, give the garden the appearance of a secret and shaded bubble. The façade of the town hall, in the Neo-Mudejar style, is in perfect tune with the exotic and rich vegetation. Ice-creams or crushed ice drinks can be enjoyed on the square’s street cafes, along with a glass of beer that, in a place like Águilas, is always enjoyable.
Two picturesque windmills stand out on the town’s skyline, along with the impressive architectural design of the Auditorium and, at the other end of the bay of Levante, the Pico del Aguilica, an interesting rock formation that resembles the beak of an eagle. An impressive sunset can be enjoyed from its vantage point.
The jetty of El Hornillo is an impressive steel structure, a former mineral loading jetty, juts out into the sea. It was built by the British railway company, The Great Southern of Spain Railway Company, at the end of the 19th Century. It has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest, as part of the country’s industrial heritage.
Rincón de El Casuco
To the back of the beach is the Rincón de El Casuco, a stairway with organic forms, made from thousands of mosaics that glimmer in the sunlight. It was created by hand by Juan Martínez in the late 1980s. At the foot of the stairs is a charming street cafe, perfect for a quick drink.
Services and leisure activities
The area has a shopping centre named the Águilas Plaza, a department store specialised in sports and an 8-screen cinema, which is known as the Multicines El Hornillo. A few minutes away by foot, there is a hypermarket, the town Auditorium and the Sea Interpretation Centre, CIMAR-Aquarium.
Murcia & Cartagena
Murcia is the Region's capital. An ancient city of Arab origin, founded in 831 at the centre of the Segura River Valley, its town centre has a significant baroque influence. With almost 450,000 inhabitants, it is the seventh most populated city in Spain. Unamuno called it the most fertile city in Spain and Reverte the most city-like fertile plain in Europe. This spring-like and bright city, which is perfect for enjoying a stroll or some tapas, also offers an excellent calendar of leisure and culture events. Cartagena is an ancient city. Formerly Cartago Nova, it was the most important Roman city on the peninsula and it has succeeded in conserving and showcasing its impressive historic and archaeological heritage, which can be admired at the city's different museums, the most important being the Roman Theatre, and also on its streets. The Port of Cartagena is one of the country's most important commercial ports, although it has an important military past, which dates back to the Middle Ages.
