Facing the tranquil waters of Mar Menor, San Pedro del Pinatar is one of the main tourist destinations on the Murcia coast.
Traditionally a seafaring and agricultural centre, San Pedro del Pinatar has become one of the principal tourist towns in Murcia, Costa Cálida.

As well as one of the town's architectural symbols, the Quintín mill, the surrounding area contains the Salinas de San Pedro del Pinatar Regional Park, a space where a great many species of migratory birds come to nest.
