It is Europe’s largest saltwater lagoon which connects to the adjacent Mediterranean sea by several channels. The Mar Menor has a surface area of almost 20 km2.

PLACES TO VISIT
This is an old naval port, dating from Roman times, now visited by major cruise lines. It is set on an impressive, large bay with fortifications on the hills either side and is home to a number of museums and Roman sites. There you will find preserved the first viable submarine in the world. It is a beautiful place in which to stroll along the typically Spanish streets, enjoy tapas and perhaps do some shopping! Park in the underground carpark in the port and you will immediately have so much at your fingertips.
This is situated close to the town of La Unión, between la Manga Club and Cartagena. Here you can experience the mining history of the area, dating back to Roman times. A “train” takes you through the area and you can go down a mine to experience what it was like to work underground. An exciting experience for children.
This is a protected nature reserve between La Manga and La Manga Club. It is an unspoilt paradise of hills, long beaches and sea. Totally undeveloped, without beach bars or facilities but an excellent day out away from everything. Take a picnic and plenty of drinks!
CABO DE PALOS
This is a small fishing port at the beginning of La Manga. It is a beautiful location for sitting on the waterfront, enjoying the sun and tapas, as well as watching the boats come and go. As mentioned, it is known for its diving schools as well as for its wide variety of fish restaurants, either overlooking the port or on the beach.
At the beginning of La Manga are the salt lakes (Salinas) which are home to a wide range of bird life and flamingos in particular. They get pinker as the summer progresses!
Also, on the other side of the Mar Menor you will find the working salt lakes in San Pedro de Pinatar, which are much bigger and are in a popular area of beaches and dunes, so ideal for spending the day there.
The coast of Murcia, Almería and Cadiz is one of the few places in Spain where it is still possible to feel the excitement of whale spotting. This is because there is practically no continental shelf in this area; in other words, the deep water (between 2,000 and 2,500 metres), which is precisely the habitat this marine species needs, is very near the coast. This, accompanied by a benign climate that guarantees smooth sailing is the perfect combination for converting the experience into a great marine adventure.

The nearest airports are Corvera Airport, Region de Murcia International Airport - RMU and Alicante–Elche Airport ALC.
There are many low cost airlines that go to Murcia including Ryanair, Easyjet, Jet2, which travel from most UK and many European cities.
Alicante airport is an extra hour up the coastline and offers many more flight options. If travelling from Alicante you need to hire a car, but it can offer more morning flights if on a short trip can make it very worthwhile. Low cost airlines are great if you stay within their rules; read their small print.
Once in Spain there are three main travel options from Murcia Airport to La Manga:
The local roads are quiet in this area. Because of the layout of this area you have to drive right around the bottom of the Mar Menor Sea and the length of the La Manga Strip, which means the journey is approximately 1 hour. On a daytime transfer, the views are lovely driving right next to the coastline at point in La Manga. It is two dual carriage way/motorways from the airport onto La Manga where it is one road from the top to bottom, so the drive is very simple.
This is often a similar price as a return taxi and is great to see the local area during your stay. Car hire prices are currently approximately £100 for a week in May 2014. Please note they will charge you additional costs for petrol and insurance which can double this price, but still is good value for a week.
Good option to see the area, drive to local shops & marina whilst in the area
The simple way to avoid the stresses and have a drink on the plane! A one-way taxi journey to the apartment is approximately 60 Euros - 80 euros for 1 – 4 people, which can be booked at the same time as reserving the apartment
Good option for no stress and a designated driver which will transport you to your accommodation day or night.
The La Manga Strip
The descriptive name of La Manga ("the sleeve") refers to an interesting geographical layout which has become one of the symbols that best identifies the coast of Murcia as a tourist resort: a chain that stretches along approximately 24 km from Cabo de Palos to the Punta del Mojón, and is the natural limit of the salt water lake known as the Mar Menor.
Originally, what is now known as La Manga del Mar Menor was a bay open to the Mediterranean; at either end, volcanic reefs gradually held back the sand and sediment that was dragged along by the sea currents to form a sandy column of dunes and rock vegetation and long beaches in contact with two seas: the Mediterranean and the Menor.
La Manga is a narrow piece of land with a width that varies between 30 m and 500m. It is cut off by natural channels that keep the two seas in contact with each other; the so-called golas allow water from the Mediterranean into the lake. As such, the space was untouched until the 60s, when La Manga was discovered as a tourist resort and underwent a transformation which included the urbanisation of the area and the construction of tourist infrastructures.
The climate of the Costa Cálida is very mild, pleasant and healthy, due to its privileged geographical location. The average air temperature in the summer months, is between +29 °C and +33 °C, and the water temperature is approximately +24 °C. While in winter the air heats up by an average between +14 °C and +18 °C. These pleasant temperatures are due to the mountains of the continent prevent the penetration of cold air masses in winter. The warm sea currents, the pure air, the gentle sea breeze and almost 320 sunny days per year, allow you to enjoy a wonderful holiday on the Costa Cálida throughout the year

Apartment 10 out of 10. Everything very clean and spacious. Very comfortable beds, very complete kitchen and bathrooms in perfect condition.
The views from the private roof terrace are spectacular !!!
The penthouse has spectacular views of the two seas. It was immaculate on arrival. It is as shown in the images. It has everything you need to spend some great rest days.
The mattresses are very comfortable and the beach is practically used by the urbanization and by those people who know how good it is. The host has been friendly and prompt in our inquiries.
Just arrived back from a wonderful stay at la manga del mar menor.
The penthouse apartment was comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.
The views from the apartment were amazing and two beaches on our doorstep!! The pool area was lovely and well maintained. The array was peaceful and just a short stroll away (about 10 -15 minutes) was an array of restaurants and bars which suited our needs - including two 19 year olds! There is also a large supermarket a 10 minute walk away.
All in all the apartment was of high quality and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend
The apartment was in a perfect location, with beautiful and incredible views of the two seas from the living room. It is equipped with everything you need for a good stay for days and with nearby shops where you can buy and leave.
The terrace is great for spending the afternoon watching the sea and sunbathing , has a great barbecue and a nice space to relax. The house is as shown in the photos and the delivery of the keys was very fast and smooth,
I definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone who wants to spend a few days in La Manga
Having the option of a great range of uk tv channels was a added bonus for a winter break, home from home on a beautiful beach and clear waters is incredible
