The Costa Calida region
Nestling at the bottom of the Costa Blanca, the Costa Calida is one of the least known and most unspoilt regions of Spain, guaranteed to give you a taste of "real Spain". In Spanish Costa Calida means warm coast. This part of Spain is said by the world health authority to be the healthiest place in the world because of the abundance of salt which has been recovered here since roman times.
The Mar Menor is a inland sea with a high mineral level, crystal clear shallow water and beautiful sandy beaches it is slightly more bouyant than the sea and the temperature is always 3 degrees higher than the Mediterranean. If while lazing on the beach you spot people walking by covered in mud or even on just an arm or leg or a knee these are THE MUD PEOPLE , the mud is believed to be very therapeutic, people leave it on all day, there are mud baths at various places around the Menor. We have one about 20 mimutes walk away, and local Brits have been known to sneak down there and try it out. Why not give it a go during your stay?
La Manga Strip ... the "sleeve" of land that runs from Cabo de Palos in the south to San Pedro in the north is 18km long and encloses the warm tranquil waters of the Mar Menor to the west and has the livelier colder Mediterranean to the east. The Strip is up to 1km wide in parts and in others is is merely 100m allowing only for the road to run through with a beach on either side. La Manga Strip is a town in its own right, albeit an long thin one! There are shopping centres, restaurants and bars set in plazas or squares.
The marina at the Puerto Tomas Maestre is beautiful and houses some stunning boats and yachts that most of us can only dream of, but the restaurants are great and the atmosphere is wonderful. You can take a ferry trip from here to the **mainland** morning trips are best you may get the Spanish air force practising overhead.
The area is best know for the La Manga Club resort, renowned for its three championship golf courses, LTA Tennis Centre Training Ground and being the training ground of visiting football teams from the whole of Europe. There are over 22 tennis courts with the option of booking tennis coaching on an hourly or weekly basis. Short tennis, squash courts, bowling green and pitch and putt to name but a few of the sporting attractions. For the evening there are over 25 restaurants and bars to dine in and to relax and enjoy yourself. These range in style and price from the Amapola Restaurant at the Hotel which is superb but a little expensive to Si bar for inexpensive dining with family entertainment.
Water sports ... well there could not be a better or safer place to learn to sail, jet ski or kite surf. The area has a number of sailing schools with a wide range of boats and dinghies on which to learn to sail or to brush up your sailing skills. Diving is a popular sport and there are a number of different diving schools offering anything from the beginners course to night dives for the more experienced diver.
The La Manga Del Mar Menor / Playa Paraiso, La Manga Del Mar Menor area
Next to Playa Paraiso is Playa Honda, about a 10 minute walk from the house where you will find 2 British bars/restaurants the Apicoco and Brambles and 4 Spanish. One of the Spanish ones is called the Malvinas and offers high quality food and wine. Expensive by Spanish standards but cheaper than London prices. The Juliet is mainly a restaurant but has a separate bar, and the Casablanca is renowned for its menu del dia served from about 1 till 6. It is very popular with the ex pats. After 6 its mainly a bar but serves great Tapas. Further along the prominade is Julians bar again very popular.
10 minutes further along the beach is another restaurant/bar at the back of the camping caravan club again very popular.
Playa Honda also has a small but very well equipped supermarket and a chemist, very good at herbal remedies.
Going the other way along the beach just around the corner is a very classy Spanish restaurant and just beyond that a very novel cocktail beach bar check it out.
Cabo de Palos just go there,in the morning for a coffee, the afternoon for a walk, the evening for a meal, midnight for nightlife.
The Spa at La Manga Club is well worth a days visit and at a price of 28euros per day (price can vary) it is a great day out. Enjoy or struggle through one of the exercise classes, use the fantastic gym and then flop by the large indoor pool with sauna and steam room. If you book a treatment, eg a massage, body scrub or one of the many other treatments you can use the jacuzzi pools. These vary in temperature and intensity. You can stand under the jets or sit in the jacuzzi and let the bubble surround you. There are other hotels along the Strip which also offer spa facilities.
Treat yourself to a day on the pleasure yacht Sailaway for a truly amazing day out. This lovely old wooden hulled but fully modernised yacht is moored in Cabo de Palos harbour and does day trips in the Med with lunch included.
The vibrant town of Cartagena is 20 minutes away. There are a number of tourist attractions which are really fun to do, I would recommend the open top bus ride and the trip around the harbour on the catamaran. If you do not want to have a history or culture lesson then the shops are fantastic, and it is a great place to buy clothes and especially shoes and handbags. Then take a long and lovely lunch over looking the harbour in one of the many cafes and restaurants on the front. The town itself is friendly and safe.
Venture further up the motorway to Torrevieja to the water park. Fun, scarey and wet!
At Murcia is the all new Terra Natura. This is a zoo park with rare and unusal animals in large natural enclosures. You can literally come face to face with bear cubs behind a glass screen, wolves and lion, girafes and zebras. There are lots of animals to see in this carefully constructed and ultra modern zoo. That is the first part, the second part of Terra Natura and on the same site is the water park. Great fun and with almost no queues. There are not as many slides as in the park in Torrevieja but the queues are almost non existant (unlike the water park in Torrevieja) so you get lots of go´s on the slides. The slow river is fun to float around in and there is an excellent series of shallow pools with climbing frames and slides. Only the brave will be able to face the enclosed steep slide.
