Los Urrutias is a charming small village on the shores of the Mar Menor. It has a beautiful church and plaza, which gives the village an old-world feel. Both the beach and the promenade are long and merge with the beach and promenade of Punta Brava to the north. There is a lovely marina which just adds to its charm, a good time to visit is on a Thursday morning when the village hosts its weekly market.
