Bridge in Águilas, Hotel Puerto Juan Montiel

In the heart of Murcia’s Costa Calida, the charming town of Águilas enjoys a warm microclimate making it the perfect place to soak up some winter sunshine and play Bridge. We are thrilled to be staying in the Hotel Puerto Juan Montiel Spa & Base Nautica, which, with its stunning Mediterranean views overlooking Juan Montiel Marina and the Bay of Poniente de Águilas, proved hugely popular with First for Bridge guests. A stroll along the attractive seafront promenade takes us to the historic centre of Águilas with its ancient buildings, hilltop castle, Roman baths, and fabulous city square where tapas bars spill out onto the pavement. There are some great local seafood restaurants close to the harbour awash with colourful fishing boats sitting side by side with sleek yachts. Golfers won’t be disappointed with two excellent courses close to the hotel.

Included excursions

We discover the historic city of Aguilas first by boat sailing around its beautiful coastline, after which our guide will take us through its main streets and squares.  We visit the interesting Aquarium Museum for the Sea Interpretation and the vast mineral loading pier situated at Playa del Hornillo.

Our second excursion takes us to Cartagena. After a panoramic bus drive, we will stroll through the streets, squares, and most emblematic highlights, to learn about the intense history of this millenary city. We include a visit to its magnificent Roman theatre, the 1888 submarine invented by Isaac Peral, and the panoramic lift that takes us to the top of Mount Conception, with superb views of the city and port.
