From Murcia (MJV)

Murcia Airport is, in fact, many kilometres from Murcia City, near the town of San Javier.

There are several different ways to get from Murcia (MJV). These instructions are for the quickest, most straightforward way, even if it is a little further than others.

On March 29th, 2007, the new Autopista, the AP7, opened to traffic and this is now the quickest route to take.

Follow the road out of the airport to the first roundabout and follow the signs towards Alicante and Murcia. After 3 kms, you get to another roundabout. Go straight on, under the motorway to the second roundabout and follow the signs towards Cartagena. You join the AP7.

After about 10kms, there is a turn off to La Manga, followed immediately by a turn off signed for Almeria. Follow this turn onto the new Autopista. It is a toll road, but there is no toll to pay until you are turning away from Cartagena. Collect a ticket, and follow the road to the Mazarron  exit. Pay the toll (€ 5.30) and then follow the road, looking for a sign to Murcia, at the roundabout. The RM3 takes you towards the Country Club after about 4 kms.  Turn off at Jt 20, signed 'Urbanization Country Club'. The entrance is just after the garden centre on the right. The time for this route is about 40-45 minutes from the airport to the Country Club. Well worth the cost of the toll.

The new RM3 and RM23 roads are now open, and they offer a viable alternative, that takes about 10 mins longer, but there are no tolls to pay.

Follow the route below on joining the AP7.

After about 7kms, turn off the motorway at the exit for Los Alcacares Centro and Torre Pacheco, and turn right at the roundabout towards Torre Pacheco. This road takes you past the Polaris World Shopping Centre and you need to turn right at the roundabout just after the big red and white hotel (very gordy, you can't miss it). Follow the signs for the A30 to Murcia, taking another right at a roundabout just after the Polaris World development. Eventually you reach the A30 where there is a huge roundabout. Do not go onto the A30. Instead, to the next exit, where the RM2 is signed for Alhama de Murcia. About 5kms short of Alhama, there is a sign to Mazarrón. Leave the motorway, go three quarters of the way around the roundabout and join the RM23 towards Mazarrón. This road joins the RM3 after the new Polaris World development. Carry on towards Mazarron,  past Camposol, and after 8kms you get to  Jt 20, signed 'Urbanization Country Club'. Turn off here and cross the bridge.  The entrance is just after the garden centre on the right.

From Alicante (ALC)

Much easier, but further.

On leaving the airport, follow the signs to Murcia and join the motorway

When approaching Murcia, look for a slip road to the motorway to Almeria and Granada. There is a big yellow sign with Arabic writing on it that marks to slip road.

Now that both the RM2 and the RM23 are open, you need to turn off the A7 when you get to Alhama de Murcia, about 1km after the El Pozo factory.  Take the turn signed for Fuente Alamo and Bahia de Mazarrón onto the RM2. After about 3kms, take the slip road off the RM2, towards the RM 3 to Mazarron. After about 16kms, you pass through Camposol. Go another 3kms and turn off at Jt 20, signed 'Urbanization Country Club' and cross the motorway. The entrance is just after the garden centre on the right..

From Almeria

There are many cheap flights to Almeria from Stansted, and this is now a viable option, taking about 10 mins longer than the trip from Alicante, with much less traffic. On leaving the airport, follow the signs for Murcia and just after Vera take the new toll road towards Cartagena. Collect a ticket, and follow the road to the Mazarron  exit. Pay the toll (€ 7.05) and then follow the road, looking for a sign to Murcia, at the roundabout. The RM3 takes you towards the Country Club after about 4 kms.  Turn off at Jt 20, signed 'Urbanization Country Club'. The entrance is just after the garden centre on the right. The time for this route is about 75-80 minutes from the airport to the Country Club.
