Nearing the border with Andalucía, and 30km further along the coast from Mazarrón, you'll reach low-key Águilas, with a slowish vibe and pleasant centre. The waterfront in town is beautiful, and still shelters a small fishing fleet; back from here is lovely Plaza de España, with dignified trees. Town beaches are divided from each other by a low headland topped by an 18th-century fortress. The really charming beaches, though, are the Cuatro Calas a few kilometres south of town.
