The Costa Calida region
The La Manga Strip has a unique position in Europe, between two Seas, the Mediterranean Sea and the crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor. The apartment is located overlooking the largest marina in the area, near the tip of the strip.
This part of Spain is famous for its salt lakes (salt is a major export). This has a major knock on effect on humidity levels, and as a result the air is much dryer than in other parts of Spain & Europe. The low humidity levels coupled with a mild climate, means the WHO (World Health Organisation) have rated this part of Spain one of the healthiest climates on the planet.
The Mar Menor is an immense lake of warm, tranquil salt water, rich in salts and iodine and noted for its therapeutic properties. The waters are a magnificent natural swimming pool with temperatures maintained by a sun that shines for an average of 320 days each year. The maximum depth of 6.5m makes it an ideal location to enjoy the many water sports available.
La Manga Del Mar Menor
The two distinct seas, soft breezes, sunny days and significant sporting infrastructures makes La Manga a water sports paradise. No one need travel far to practice their water sport ; sailing, diving, water skiing, kite surfing, windsurfing, jet skiing and most other nautical sports.
Apart from the water sports, La Manga offers a great variety of other activities to suit all tastes such as guided walking tours, horse riding, fishing, pleasure flights, costal hikes and bird watching at the nearby nature reserves. Blue flag beaches and boat trips also make this a favourite place for all the family. There are boat trips from the marina to local islands in both the Med and the Mar Menor. One of the boats (which sails past the apartment) has a glass bottom to view the marine life.
The world famous La Manga Club is 20 minutes drive away with many quality golf courses close by including DeVere Roda Golf, La Serena and Hacienda del Alamo. There are tennis clubs with courts open to the public all year round, plus paddle tennis and squash. In addition there is a roller-skating rink and full size go-kart track. The road which runs through La Manga has been built with a cycle-lane and there’s an absence of hills throughout the strip. You can hire cycles which will be delivered directly to the apartment.
The historic cities of Cartagena (30 mins away) and Murcia (60 mins drive) are well worth visiting for the shopping, Roman monuments and sightseeing. Cartagena is full of interesting architecture, has many museums, and an historic marina with tourist trips around the harbour. The shopping in the historic centre is great.
There are small towns nearby for sightseeing and shopping including Los Belones and Santiago de la Ribera. You can take the foot ferry from the marina to Santiago de la Ribera, the Spanish air display team practices here.
Further afield you can take a scenic tour through the local mountains or visit the flamingos at the San Pedro salt lakes.
You don't need a car to enjoy a holiday here since buses run up and down the strip all day and there are bus services to the local towns such as Los Belones and Cartagena.
Relax and enjoy - in La Manga you can rest, practice sport and also get to know the local history, or participate in the traditional fiestas of the area, the choice is yours.
