El Mojon is an old fishing village with a superb beach, located on the border of the Costa Calida and the Costa Brava, at the tip of the Mar Menor.
El Mojon has its own beach of fine sand and clear water. The neighbouring beaches are in small residential areas interspersed with areas of green belt.
Mil Palmeras Beach is ideal for sailing enthusiasts, linking up with the Rincon and Puerto inlets, the latter with a promenade that comes alive on hot summer nights. Las Villas is the beach behind Torre Horadada Marina; it's the longest beach in the area.
There is a watchtower on the coast, typical of the many that line the Mediterranean cost of Spain. A settlement developed around the tower, which became the summer residence for the inhabitants of Orihuela, Murcia and the Vega Baja del Segura.
The Archaeological and Ethnological Museum at El Horadada has five sections, dedicated to the environment, to fossils, numismatics and ethnology. On display are the most typical flora of the municipality, a collection of metals, assault weaponry, pieces from Iberian textile mills and objects made from esparto and the typical "pilare?a" dress.
El Mojon enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection from the surrounding mountains against the cold North winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.
