The nearest airports are Corvera Airport, Region de Murcia International Airport - RMU. There are many low cost airlines that go to Murcia including Ryanair, Easyjet, Jet2, Monarch, Bmibaby, 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:

By road

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.

Car hire

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.


This is truly a magnificent place for families and couples alike. The apartment is located within 5 minutes walking distance of the very Cosmopolitan Mar Menor Marina with its vast array of high class restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets, banks etc. If beach walking is your interest then you can walk for hours on the beautiful beaches from just outside of the apartment. Within a short drive is the world famous La Manga Golf Club Resort where many of the worlds International football teams use the facilities. The beautiful historic town of Cartagena and the bustling capital city of Murcia are also within a short drive where the Spanish culture is still at it's best.. Also if traditional Spain interests you, at the end of the strip there is Cablo de Palos a small fishing village, with its vast array of excellent fish restaurants. Santiago de Ribera can be reached by the 2 hourly ferry service which takes about 20 minutes from the Marina. Spanish culture and cuisine at its very best

The Mar Menor (or 'small sea') located on the Costa Calida, is the largest natural saltwater lagoon in Europe and waters sustain temperatures of approximately 17 degrees centigrade average per year. It is a unique spot offering clean water with peaceful, tide- free bathing on pleasant shores, whatever the time of year.

The Mar Menor was created a little over 1000 years ago. Originally a safe little bay, offering shelter for even large ships, it became a natural lagoon when sediments from the sea built up on a small underwater mountain range and closed off the inlet with a sandbar. On its Western side is mainland Spain , and on its Eastern side is La Manga de Mar Menor, a strip of land known as the la manga strip

#22. Superb Mediterranean / Beachfront Setting

This was one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed in. The apartment was luxurious, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and had everything you needed.

It was home from home and in fact I could move in there permanently and not change a thing. My teenage son was so pleased with the wifi and choice of TV channels when he wanted to escape from the heat of the day (typical teenager!!).

The location was beautifully tranquil and peaceful. The views from the windows and balconies were amazing.

Everything was exactly as the description for the property but until you are actually there you cant fully comprehend it. Any correspondence I had with John, the owner was responded to immediately and was extremely helpful. Also Hayley and Tony who manage the apartment were very helpful and lovely people too. I certainly will have no problem recommending this property to my family and friends, even strangers who will read this review please believe me when I say this is an amazing property. If your looking for a holiday in a luxury apartment in a superb quiet, peaceful and tranquil location then this is the place for you.

There is a well stocked supermarket close by should you wish to cook which we did because the kitchen was so well equipped and we could appreciate the views from either the inside dining table or the balcony table and chairs. However if dining out on holiday is your thing then there are some beautiful restaurants within walking distance at the harbour, there's even a Burger King!!! A bus runs regularly up and down the strip for a mere €1.15 if you wish to travel down the strip where you will find a range of other restaurants and shops.

The beach was beautiful and safe with a lifeguard in attendance and on the opposite side of the road (Mar Menor) you could hire pedalos and jet skis there was even a large sea play area for kids. All in all this is one of the most amazing places we have stayed in. 11 out of 10 !!

#12. Thanks for everything and we had a great holiday

Thanks for everything and we had a great holiday, we just love la manga, your apartment was first class and so was the stop over. The location was perfect for us and the kids. Tony and Hayley were also a great help and always on hand, we will certainly book with you again and will let our friends know how good it is.I do hope we left everything to your satisfaction.
Kind Regards
Frances Burke.

#9. Superb apartment in a stunning location

My wife and I spent 2 weeks here as part of an extended holiday travelling by car and this was our first visit to the La Manga area.

The apartment is absolutely superb, extremely spacious, fully equipped and with wonderful views of the Med from the large main balcony. Without doubt it is located in the best and narrowest position on the whole strip. The whole complex and pool is clean and well maintained by onsite staff.

Tony and Hayley were onhand promptly for arrival and departure and for local advice or help. The beach is pristine and most days we went for a long walk along the shoreline before our evening visit to the marina area about 15 mins walk. We liked to watch the sunset with a drink at Captain Moodie's bar before dining at one of the many restaurants. We tried most of them including traditional, pizza, asian, mexican etc and all offered good value. For a simple shared salad, pizza and bottle of wine we paid 20 euros total and fantastic fresh fish main courses could be had for under 15 euros. If you fancy catering at the apartment the nearby SuperCor is fully stocked and very reasonable along with a decent bottle of wine for 3 euros. Trips out included the ferry from the marina to Santiago de Ribera (4 euros each way) with the longest ever street market, a visit to superb Cartagena, a walk up to the lighthouse at Cabo de Palos, a visit to Los Alcazares with its long promenade and a walk up to the historical site of the Cartagena Portman guns. Our 2 sons and their girlfriends joined us for a long weekend and just loved to laze on the beach. Overall a fantastic holiday, thanks very much

#3. This was our second trip to Spain but the first to La Manga

This was our second trip to Spain but the first to La Manga
, and from the moment we arrived at Playa Principe we all fell in love with this place! Best location on the whole La Manga Strip.

Walking distance to the Thomas Maestre Marina, restaurants, shops, cafes (Internet Cafe), banks.

The view from the balcony and every window in the apartment is fantastic- white sandy beach and blue sea. Sitting on the balcony at night was so relaxing, sipping a glass of good Spanish wine, listening to the sound of waves and watching the lights along the coast.!! Wow!!! .

Highlights of our holiday were trips to historic city of Cartagena and ferry trips across Mar Menor to Santiago de Ribera to the weekly street Market. The ferry leaves from the marina every 2 hours and costs 4 euros/person. The bus to Cartagena has its first stop on the Strip and cost around 3 euros. .

The building and the apartment are beautiful - spotlessly clean and only three apartments on the floor !!! Remember to wipe your feet when coming back from the beach!!!! The housekeepers - wonderful couple! Very helpful and attentive, going out of their way to please!!! The owners deserve the biggest applause - John always returned my emails in a timely manner and even set up a Paypal account for fast and secure payments. Thank You John and Gill for a wonderful memories!!! It was worth it to fly across Atlantic Ocean (7 hrs) to spend two weeks in your 5 star Luxury apartment in La Manga.!!!! Hope to return there soon!
