the village of isla plana is a typical sleepy spainsh small town were the pace of life is laid back. the village has some nice places to eat and the social club by the church is a great meeting place for drinks and tapas.


Isla Plana is 40mins from Murcia airport and 90 mins from Alicante, motorway all the way till you reach the beautiful, historic city of Cartagena, follow the signs for Mazarron then Isla Plana about 20mins through the small Spanish town, just to get the flavor of Spain.Then it is over the mountains and then you look down upon the beauty of Isla Plana Blue as far as the eye can see. The different blue’s of the Mediterranean sea and the clear blue skies are wonderful to see.

Isla Plana is a small village made up of four areas of the coast, La Azohia, Isla Plana, Puerto de Mazarron & Bolneuvo, all have their own charm and history and the Puerto de Mazarron has a new marina three years old with restaurants from all different countries.

Being a small resort Isla Plana can be unfairly overlooked except for the Spanish folk who know a good place when they see it.


Best Times to Visit/Weather

The weather is often glorious in March, April & May with temperatures in the 70’s and bars and restaurants comfortable and not too crowded.
