‘our camp was just fantastic, everything went well and we like the varying terrain and the good quality of the maps‘ (Rachel Engeler, coach of Swiss Regional Team. This camp is small and has 5 maps (2016) around the bay of Mazarron, located in the Sierra de Almenara, a mining area since centuries. It has many unspoiled beaches, coves and rocky areas. This camp is ideal for a period of 2 to 5 days, and you can combine it with the Murcia Inland or Alicante camp, either by changing accommodation, either by day-trips.
This DIY camp is available all year long. However, to note that:
Colored control tapes will be in the forest and regularly checked by our staff between 01Feb2020 and 15Mar2020.
Rest of year: tapes might still be there but this is not at all guaranteed.
Terrains in this area are dry and rocky, some with easy to run soft soil, some with tougher rocky soil. One of the trainings is in Minas de Mazarron, an ex-mining area. Another training is around Castillitos, and old military fort with stunning views and many tricky ins and outs. Rest of trainings are mainly coastal, with losts of countours and tricky route choices.
We offer training packages of different sizes in the Murcia region, depending where and how long you stay and how much you want to train. We will be offering the following, all bookable separately through our reservation tool:

We recommend Hotel Playa Grande, a nicely located beach- front (3 stars) in Puerto de Mazarrón. The hotel has a cosy restaurant and bar with a nice terrace next to the swimming pool. The hotel has double or twin rooms, with private bathrooms.
