If you want to learn Spanish by the sea, then Murcia is perfect for you, as it has two! The Mar Menor is, in reality, a large lagoon, but it is a spectacular location for water sports and is often warmer than Mediterranean, from which it is separated by La Manga, a 22km sandbar! Murcia is known as ‘Europe’s Orchard’, thanks to its bounteous supply of fruit and vegetables, from which the city’s chefs make some of the most delicious tapas in the country! A university city, Murcia perfectly balances its vibrant, youthful atmosphere with a rich history and culture, making it an excellent location in which to learn Spanish!
Famed for hosting many colourful fiestas, Murcia is also a wonderful location for those interested in sports. Whether you enjoy golf, sailing, tennis, horse-riding, water sports or even adventure sports such as rafting, canoeing and hang-gliding, Murcia is the perfect location for you!

How to get there
Fly into Murcia, Madrid or Alicante Airports. Alicante Airport is likely to be the most convenient option, as flights into this airport tend to be more regular, and the transport links to Murcia do actually tend to be better than those from Murcia Airport. You can take a bus from Alicante Airport to Murcia. We can arrange an airport transfer for you from Alicante or Murcia Airports, although please note that this service is not included in the course price.
