Apartment in La Tercia Golf Resort, Murcia, Costa Calida, Spain - Peaceful Location, 15 Mins To Beaches Of Mar Menor

United Golf Resorts-La Tercia is a unique resort with over 8 pools and playgrounds, a kids paradise.The resort is only 15 minutes drive to the beautiful beaches of the Mar Menor and Murcia city. The lower prices reflect the closure of the golf course and driving range. This is a family resort with renters returning year after year to experience the convenient location to local attractions, theme parks and water parks and beautiful beaches and enjoy the well maintained facilities on site.

Driving directions:

San Javier – Murcia Airport

From the airport, exit and go straight over the 1st roundabout.

At the next roundabout take the second exit on the right onto the AP7 in direction ALICANTE. Stay on the motorway until you see the exit (shortly afterwards) for MURCIA/BALSICAS and take this exit, follow the road down and to the right and go straight over the small roundabout in direction MURCIA. Continue along this dual carriageway (C3319) until you see the exit for BALSICAS/ROLDAN (between 5 – 10 mins drive) and take it.

Go straight over the two roundabouts in the direction of Murcia. Once the grove of trees appear on your right, take the first road between the trees. This is the road to LaTercia. Stay on this road until you exit the grove, go straight over the first two roundabouts then turn left at the third one, into United Golf Resorts.

From UGR entrance to apartment:Stay on the main entrance road. Follow it up and around to the right, then straight on again. Beware large speed bump in the road. After approximately 1 minute drive you will see a small roundabout, in front of the commercial centre. Go over round about to the next one. Turn left on Calle Alcacil and the apartments begin at about No. 66. Follow road until you find No. 48 this is your block, ground floor, apartment B, on the right.

Parking is right by the door.

About Rosemary Taylor

We are a British family of 5, now living abroad, hoping to retire in Spain.

We love that the Costa Calida has so much to offer, some of the best beaches on the med, great towns for shopping and sight seeing. The resort has everything for a very relaxing break and is great for young children as our 3 children will testify. They loved the pools and playgrounds, and the beaches of the Mar Menor are only 15 minutes away.

Rosemary Taylor purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Rosemary Taylor chose Cartagena - Mar Menor

We love the location on the Costa Calida. The area remains very Spanish and the beaches of the Mar Menor are superb. The sea is so salty you can float and much warmer than other parts of the mediteranean.

There are a great selection of restaurants and shops in the nearby towns and villages. The area is great to explore. We love Murcia and Cartegena.

There is also the new water park and shopping centre just south of Murcia.

What makes this apartment unique

The choice of pools is amazing on this resort. Our apartment is a ground floor property with a very large garden which is full enclosed, so is very safe for pets and children.

Beautiful quiet place

Lovely apartment. Great communication with both Rosemary and Maria. Place was very quiet and you definitely need a car to get around. Nothing in site apart from lovely swimming pools. Lovely Indian on Balsicas industrial estate.

Great last minute cheap family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a fab time in the apartment for the week we were there! The apartment itself was amazing on the ground floor with a massive terrace over looking the pool and park! Lovely and clean!

The only thing that was a nightmare was getting to the supermarket etc it was a 25 minute drive, but apart from that we had a great time! Thanks

Owner's Response: Thank you Carly for your review, and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in our family apartment. I'm sorry you didn't find the Spar supermarkets in La Tercia (a 5 minute drive from the resort). Also the bakery in the village is known for its fresh bagettes and croissants; my children loved the chocolate ones. Please book with us again and try them out. Rosemary

5 Star Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Had fantastic time at this wonderful apartment. We stayed for two weeks with our 9 year old twin boys. The apartment was perfect. Very secure and safe for our children. The pool and play area was great. Very clean and well kept gardens. Neighbours were friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this 'value for money' apartment, especially for families.

Nearest Restaurant
7 Kilometres
The Village, Indian rest. in Blasicas
Car: necessary


The warm waters of the Mar Menor are only 15 mins away by car. The concentration of salts in this shallow lagoon are renowned for their health giving properties and the area is typically Spanish and unspoiled by tourism. The beaches further north in Alicante province have long been popular holiday destinations and boast many shops, restaurants and sea fronts. The port area in Alicante has recently been renovated to create some lovely promenades.


The resort is just 15 minutes from San Javier (Murcia) airport and 40 minutes from Alicante airport. A car is a must to take full advantage of the surrounding beaches and towns.


The village of La Tercia is within walking distance where you can find a small supermarket and wine bar. Within a few minutes drive are the villages of Sucina and Balsicas and San Javier and the bigger towns along the Mar Menor are just 15 minutes away where there is a superb range and variety of restaurants, supermarkets and tourist shops. The historical city of Murcia is 20 minutes by car and hosts a cathedral, football stadium and the new shopping mall called Nueve Condominio.

Further Details:

The Roman port of Cartegena is 20 minutes drive away and has a beautiful restored promenade and is architecturally a delight to explore. Going North you will find the livelier towns of Torrevieja, Guardamar and Alicante for a day out or for dining in the evening. The Mar Menor is Europe's biggest salt water lagoon. It is renowned for having a water temperature 5* higher than the surrounding Mediterranean sea. It has a depth of no more than 7 meters and a salinity which creates buoyancy, making it one of the safest places in the world to swim. The Mar Menor is popular for water sports and is one of the best locations in Europe for windsurfing. For the more adventurous there is a Scuba diving club where PADI trained English instructors cater for complete beginners as well as competent divers. The Mar Menor is the safest place to try your first dive or for qualified divers there art boat dives in the Cabo de Palos reserve.
