Águilas, situated west of Mazarrón along the coast, is an old Roman fishing port, and was established in more modern times during the Enlightenment, when in 1785 it began to operate as a port of exit for the produce of the Murcia region's fertile fields.

In the 19th century it became a major mining enclave, a reminder of which times is the Hornillo jetty, where iron, lead and silver from the nearby mines were loaded onto ships.

The town's food market and the railway monument are places of interest. This seafaring town offers the visitor an extensive coastline stretching some 34 kms, a fact which, when combined with an enviable average temperature, makes it one of the main tourist destinations in the Murcia region.

We can find solitary coves and beaches with crystal-clear water, such as La Higuerica, La Carolina or Calabardina; urban beaches, such as Las Delicias; and one of the best areas on the Mediterranean coast for scuba diving, thanks to some excellent rocky sea beds, above all on Fraile island and in the area around the rock of Cape Cope.

The area around Águilas has other places of striking beauty, such as the Cuatro Calas Protection Area. From among the calendar of festivals held in Águilas, it is worth highlighting its Carnival, declared to be of International Tourist Interest.
