There is a good way to reach one of the best natural beaches at Region of Murcia: hiking. Only one kilometer between dunes, salt flats, acuatic birds as flamingos. The name of the beach: Torre Derribada at San Pedro del Pinatar.

Today, another fire. This seems to have been caused, or was an oversight by burning stubble, even though at this time is forbidden to light fires. At this time, some 45 hectares have been burnt. Garruchal mountain range, is a protected area of trees and birds close to populations . The entire city of Murcia is filled with smoke and falling ash from the air.
There have been three outbreaks of fire. Two amphibious planes, four helicopters, fire crews, and even the army, have moved to control this fire. At this time, the fire is stabilized.
Hopefully it does not get worse.
