Can anyone give us some ideas of places to see and visit along with good places to eat ? We are a family of 8 with granny and teenagers we have transport and can't wait to explore we don't arrive till the last wee in October and I'm a little unsure of what things will still be open out of season . Any idea would be a great help !

Drove to Bolnuevo, Mazarron today.  . Never been there before but had tapas at Oasis de las Palmeras Bar/restaurant, which is located at the far end of Bolnuevo and is facing the beach . Even better it is next to an enormous FREE carparking area.

Magras con tomate was melt in the mouth. Cost € 9.30 for  4 tapas, coke and a coffee.  The restaurant menu was varied and IMO also reasonably priced. Understand they have evening entertainment. Venue about 15/ 20 mins from El Saladillo.

Temp today was 25c. Not bad for October 10th.

Good restaurants facing beach in Mazarron as well. Would expect most, if not all, of the eateries to be open.

Floella, you must have driven past one of the best restaurants in Murcia is on the beach at Bolnuevo - called "La Siesta".  The steaks rate among the best anywhere and their seafood is fabulous, as is the setting.  But I agree the Oasis de la Palmeras is excellent for tapas and a drink or two.

Back to the OP - there's just one restaurant at El Saladillo, which is OK it's in the Spanish canteen style.  The village is quite small, just a church I think. 

There are several villages close by with bars and restaurants and as Windtaker says Camposol is a mile or so away, but personally I would head in the other direction, through Mazarron town and continue on down to Puerto de Mazarron where there are 100 plus restaurants of all types and styles along and close to the Marina.  They compete with each other so they are well priced a menu del dia is €10 or €11.

The place is always buzzing even out of season, the beach is great for kids and it's lovely to stroll along the promenade at night.  If you don't know where you're going it's easy to miss it as you have to park and walk the last 100 yards or so from the road.  But just park as soon as the road turns to the right and then head towards the sea and follow the crowd.  The most popular restaurant there is "Viggos" which is big, ask for "Viggos Restuarante" if you need directions.

In terms of places to go there are quite a few choices - the "Guns" (used in the Guns of Navaroone) not easy to find, but marvellous scenery on route.  Easier and probably of wider appeal is Sirerra Espuna - head along the motoeway  to Totana, then follow the signs to Aledo.  Aledo itself is an extraordinary village, but alongide is a converted monastery which is a hotel and restuarant which has a great terrace to eat and enjoy the tranquility.

Don't argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Will look out for La Siesta next time I am in the area. Today was just a recce because had heard lots about it.

Agree the converted monestry on route to Aledo is excellent and Aledo itself is an interesting place to visit. Only noticed one rest/ bar in this village, But it did menu del dia. Interesting church and ancient tower in the narrow cobbled area.

Plus of course there is always magnificent Cartagena and inland Lorca..the castillo..... to visit...should the weather turn a trifle chilly.
