The town of San Pedro del Pinatar is about 2 km from the coastline and belongs to the municipality with the same name, which has a total of about 25,000 inhabitants. This number increases significantly in the summer with its strategic location along the north coast of the Murcia region. The area has become the most important tourist destinations along the Costa Calida with the quiet waters of the Mar Menor bay just outside. The area is a traditional center for agriculture and fishing, although the areas of cultivated land shrink in line with the high population growth in the area. The most important areas in the municipality are the city of San Pedro del Pinatar, Lo Pagan and El Mojon.
