The Costa Calida region
The region of Murcia is steeped in history and provides something for everyone, whether you want to roll out of bed onto the beach or go exploring.
A car is not essential, we use one on about half of our visits, the other half we use the local buses, the Ferry and taxi's, it all depends on what you are looking for.
The city of Murcia is certainly worth a visit, dating back to 825 AD it has some fantastic architecture and historical monuments including the Gothic Cathedral and Romea Theatre. if History isn't your thing then there are hundreds of great shops, cafes and restaurants to keep you busy all day long. Buses run regularly from la Manga to Murcia, just pick up a timetable from Tourist Information at the bottom of the strip.
Cartagena is slightly closer to La Manga and can only be described as gorgeous! Spains main naval port is steeped in heritage and culture with influences of Moorish, Roman and Phoenician architecture. Cartagena has undergone huge Restoration in recent years from excavating the old Roman Theatre to the opening of the new archeology museum on the harbor front. Great shopping, great nightlife and very child friendly it's certainly worth a visit!
Closer to home there are lots of small towns dotted around the Mar Menor, all have great beaches, restaurants and plenty to see and do.
The La Manga Del Mar Menor / Las Gondolas area
La Manga strip is a unique destination in the Costa Calida area of southern Spain. Formed over centuries from volcanic reefs it is some 22Km long and an average 100 metres wide and is surrounded by two seas; the Mediterranean on the one side and the Mar Menor (little sea) on the other.
The Mar Menor offers shallow, warm, calm waters, perfect for small children. The lake is also rich in minerals and salts said to have healing powers and a range of health benefits - you will often see people covered in the mineral rich clay sun bathing along the strip.
Las Gondolas is located at the northern end of La Manga strip at one of it's narrowest points where from shore to shore it is only 100 or so metres wide. Beaches on both sides are accessible and are rarely that busy. On the Mediterranean side you can walk for about 6km along the beach.
Within the small development there are a couple of general stores, a lovely patisserie/cafe, chemist and a handful of bars and restaurants. Some 4Km further along the strip there is a larger supermarket and a range of bars and restaurants within the Tomas Maestre Marina.
There are some fantastic restaurants only a few minutes walk from the apartment, we strongly recommend visiting Pieters, one of the oldest on the strip, book a table outside next to the sandy beach on the Mar and enjoy a candlelit dinner with lovely relaxing music and excellent service.
Other things to do include water sports of all, kinds from kite surfing to diving, loads of places dotted along the strip. Boat trips around the mar or out to the nearby islands and charter hire can also be arranged at the marina, alternatively we can arrange on your behalf.
Calblanque is the local national park and includes miles of private sandy beaches, mountain walks, horse riding, mountain biking and much more.

Just returned from a week here. Spacious and very well equipped apartment with an excellent restaurant only a 100m walk away. Weather was fantastic with sea warm enough for snorkelling. Regular bus service runs from just outside the apartment up and down the 18km strip. We caught the nearby ferry which takes 1/2 hour to reach the mainland. Would thoroughly recommend for couples and and familes.
