Mazarrón is a municipality in the comarca of Bajo Guadalentín, situated in the Region of Murcia, Spain.

The local economy is based on agriculture, fishing and principally tourism with Mazarrón being one of the major resorts in the Murcia region. In the summer, due to its beaches, the local population swells to more than 130,000 inhabitants.

In addition to the municipal capital, the town of Puerto de Mazarrón also concentrates on tourism  and here you'll find the famous Mazarrón Phoenician ships, the oldest in the world; two Phoenician ships - known as Mazarrón I and II - were found under "La Isla" (one of the local beaches). Mazarrón II retains all its original structure and curvature, unlike Mazarrón I which is in pieces. Mazarrón II still lies on the beach waiting for  a decision by the regional authorities whether it should be transferred to ARQUA (the National Museum of Underwater Archaeology.) or remain in Mazarrón; ARQUA already has an exact replica of this boat.
