Pronounced 'los-alcatha-res' is an old fishing and saltwater spa town on the Costa Calida (warm coast) in the Murcia region of Spain. The town is on the western shore of the Mar Menor, a saltwater lagoon separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a 22 kilometre long strip of land called La Manga. The Mar Menor is always 3-4 degrees C warmer than the Mediterranean and the area enjoys an average of 320 days of sunshine each year.
