Holidaymakers looking to escape the dreary British weather need look no further than the south of Spain, where pleasant temperatures can be enjoyed all year round.
Situated on the sunny Costa Calida in the Murcia region of Spain, La Manga Club basks in sunshine for over 300 days a year and even winter temperatures are considerably mild compared to the UK.
Average temperatures in the summer months range from 30 degrees C to 33 degrees C and temperatures during the winter season rarely dip below 10 degrees C, meaning that those taking holidays in Spain can enjoy the outdoors at any time of year.
Holidaymakers visiting in the summer months will find that most days are extremely sunny and heavy rainfall during this time is quite rare.

Car hire in Murcia can often work out cheaper than using public transport and taxis, and ultimately it offers holidaymakers much more freedom.
Hiring a car enables holidaymakers to take in all the wonders of the stunning region, from the historical sites of Cartagena to the white sandy beaches of the coastline. It's also a great way to explore the small mountain villages and soak up some Spanish culture.
