Sucina Murcia

Filed under: Costa Blanca,Costa Calida,Spain — Tags: , , , , , — needahand @ 10:49 am

A small village in the Murcia region of Spain, Sucina is close to Murcia’s border with Alicante, so it could be considered to be part of either the Costa Blanca or Costa Calida. Sucina has a population of around a thousand, a population which is now rising (due to tourism) where it was previously falling due to youngsters moving away to more prosperous areas. Sucina is handy for the beaches of the Mar Menor and also those of the Orihuela Costa, so although it is an inland village, a beach is never far away. Golf is also important for Sucina with a course and country club near to the village.
