A Bit of Background
If buyers could get a place in San Pedro, they would. San Pedro is an extremely popular place – it’s right on the border of the Mediterannean and the Mar Menor, where the salt lakes are. There’s not much room left to build new properties, but it does have attractions, such as a national park, the salt lakes and a nice, new marina with shops. Just watch out for parking in the summer, when Spaniards come from the North for the beautiful beaches!
There’s not a supermarket in San Pedro as such; it’s a holiday destination so if you live here, it’s quite a drive to the shops. On the plus side, it’s only a 1km walk to the beach, although homes don’t tend to include swimming pools, which is often one of the main things Brits want.
Estate Agents Say…
Overseas investors tend to find that the places are smaller than they expect because they have been built for Spanish buyers.
San Javier airport is the main gateway for air passengers heading directly to Murcia (although Alicante is a common point of entry for tourists). Later in 2016, though, Murcia’s long-awaited Corvera Airport is expected to open.
Murcia is well connected to all the other major towns and regions in Spain thanks to the country’s reliable inter-city train network. Line C-1 connects Murcia to nearby Alicante, while C-2 reaches out in the opposite direction to Águilas.
Murcia’s motorways make up a wide-ranging and convenient travel network. For public transport users, Latbus is Murcia’s regional bus service, ranging from Archena to San Javier. ALSA provides local bus routes, as well as connections to cities along the Costa Calida.
