You can enjoy the cool water in many beaches in the region but caves are also fresh.
In summer, it’s hot, very hot and a good swim in the sea is fantastic to refresh.
However why not take the opportunity to enjoy a bit of freshness in cool caves.
Unexplored galleries, cave art and a great stone sky where the sun never rises will make you consider the caves of the Region of Murcia as ‘your precious’.
Nearly all the caves in the Murcia Region are formed by limestone or dolomite, which results in the large number of cavities catalogued.
