Sucina could be described as a large village or a small town. It has a charming centre complete with beautiful church square surrounded by bars and restaurants. Sucina is located around 18km or 15 minutes drive from the beach resorts of The Mar Menor. Being a short distance inland it is less geared towards tourism and is ideal for those looking for a more relaxed, residential environment. It is located close to the new International Airport and within a short drive of many of the region's superb golf resorts. The nearest of which, Hacienda Riquelme, is just 3.4km away.
Over the last 10 years Sucina has become a very popular choice for both regular visitors and expats relocating to the area permanently from the UK and other Northern European countries. It has plenty of local amenities including 2 supermarkets, restaurants, bars, banks, parks, health centres, a pharmacy, clothes shops, fresh food shops, a hardware store, petrol station aswell as number of other services and leisure facilities. The town has around 5 or 6 very good British bars and restaurants, a British run furniture shop and 2 or 3 British owned property services and management companies which reflects the number of UK Expats living in the town.
