The Murcia 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 Strip
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 (40 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.

"Perfect Apartment at the right end of the strip"
Just 2 of us stayed in this apartment but will happily sleep up to 5 with a double room, a twin room and a sofa bed if needed. There are also 2 bathrooms, a good sized kitchen and living room and a lovely balcony looking out over the Marina.
Once I made the booking Cheryl was so helpful sending information about the surrounding area, maps, day trips, good restaurants etc. Once you arrive in the apartment she also has a "manual" which has all the information you will need for the week ie bike rental, bus times, best beaches, bars and restaurants.
We rented bikes and you will need them if you don't have a car as walking to the nearest decent restaurant will take you over half an hour (to the Marina). Bikes will also allow you to explore the whole strip. This apartment is located at 14km. The strip is from 0km to 18km so a big area to explore. There is also a great beach club at 17km which is worth a visit for a day (€10 entrance).
The location is great as it is the more salubrious end of the strip, everything is newer and cleaner. There is a supermarket next door which will have everything you need.
The nearest beach is a 3 minute walk and is just past the supermarket on the same side. This is a special beach as hidden in the sand in the Mar Menor is "Theraputic mud". Make sure you visit here and cover yourself in mud for an afternoon. There is also a handy sun downers bar at this beach which is fantastic for watching the amazing sunsets.
One point to note is that while we were visiting, there seemed to be a jellyfish issue in the Mar Menor which was a bit annoying and made swimming more like a assault course! Hoepfully they will get this sorted.
The apartment has everything you need to be self catering and we probably cooked 4 nights in the week. Perfect for a relaxing couple of days.
Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed your stay. I should mention the apartment actually only sleeps 4 since I don't have a sofa bed. Cycling is a good way to get around if you don't use the local bus service since La Manga strip is flat. There are free to hire Tourist Information bikes available nearby next to the spa hotel (I think for a limited hire period). There are jelly fish in the Mar Menor but the council usually puts up nets to stop them coming onto the beaches so not sure what happened when you were there. Fortunately you also have the Med beaches on the other side of the road. Hope you will consider staying at our holiday home again.

"Fantastic, relaxing holiday."
The apartment is perfect with everything you could possibly require it is quite a large apartment brilliant for 4 people with 2 bathrooms making life much easier if you have 2 teenage children. It is situated in a great place with the Med on one side of the road and the Mar Menor on the other both with lovely clean beaches and warm sea. The apartment is located within walking distance to a large supermarket stocking everything you could need (you can even borrow the trolley to take it back in!). There is also a regular bus service along the Manga strip costing only 1 euro 15 for whatever distance you travel to take you to many different restaurants. The whole complex is kept beautifully clean and tidy with a lovely pool. If you don't fancy going out you can spend many an hour just sat on the balcony watching the boats. We have stayed in many different apartments over the years and this is one of the best, would highly recommend this apartment, we will be back.

"Everything need thought of and provided."
We had a most enjoyable holiday in your apartment and there was literally nothing that we needed as you had thought of everything. The apartment is as you stated and was in excellent condition on arrival.The balcony was great and there was always activity outside which made it most enjoyable. We walked the beach most mornings and swam in the pool in the afternoon - so relaxing.
We visited the restaurants recommended and enjoyed them and found them all reasonable. Sugar and Spice restaurant food was excellent but the service was poor and it was a pity as they were basically understaffed.
Fourteen days of non stop sunshie was just the job and really envigorating.

"Peaceful location with stunning views"
This apartment did not disappoint with its amazing views across the harbour and out to sea. Everything was very clean and comfortable, the cot and highchair we rented were all set up which was brilliant and our son slept very soundly.
As we didn't visit in high season we walked around the main road to the harbour two nights in a row (in high season I think you can get a boat literally straight across). I imagine in July/Aug the harbour would be buzzing but there were still enough people about, we felt very safe. We watched the sun set and enjoyed lovely food and service from two different restaurants (Mexican and Sugar & Spice - both recommended by the apartments' owner, who also sent lots of helpful info over email prior to our trip. Plus there was an excellent folder full of suggestions in the apartment, as well as lots of DVDs you can borrow if you fancy a night in).
There is a supermarket literally down the road too which was very handy. The pool was okay with a good sized baby pool and adult pool, but we preferred the day we spent on a local beach (on the main road, just past the harbour) and the tapas restaurant next to the beach was great too.
Definitely a great holiday and we would consider visiting again.

"Lovely apartment in a beautiful location."
Stayed here for 4 nights. The apartment was everything we wanted - lovely location with good facilities and great to have the air conditioning even in October. Lovely views of the marina from the balcony and beaches close by too.
