Practical information

Mazarrón belongs to the CET (Central European Time) or CEST (Central European Summer Time) time zone during the summer time, therefore it has GMT+1 in winter and GMT+2 in summer (GMT: Greenwich Meridian Time).

Meal times

They are usually a bit later than in the rest of Europe: breakfast (very similar to continental breakfast) between 8am and 10:30am in the morning. Lunch at restaurants is served between 1pm and 3:30pm and supper from 8:30pm to 11pm. In any case, most tourist accommodations adapt their timetables to the European standard and it is common for cafeterias and bars to offer a continuous service for having tapas, combined dishes, sandwiches and portions of different foods at any time of the day.

Commercial hours

Shopping hours from 10am to 2pm and from 5pm to 8pm-9pm. Shops and shopping centres are open on Saturdays and Sundays in the morning in the Port of Mazarrón but not in Mazarrón town where shops and shopping centres are closed on Sundays. It is worth stressing that pubs, bars and discos are usually open until 3am or 4am at weekends.

The Municipality has three weekly street markets: on Thursdays in the residential area Camposol, Saturdays in Mazarrón and Sundays in Port of Mazarrón. 


Pharmacies are open during the commercial hours. In any case, there are duty pharmacies in different points of the town outside shopping hours. Lists of duty pharmacies are shown on the doors of all pharmacies in the town.
