Location description from owner
The Region of Murcia region
According to the World Heath Organisation, the Costa Calida (Warm Coast) area is reputed to have one of the most pleasant climates in the world, with mild winters, hot (but not oppressive) summers and an average of 320 sunny days a year. There are so many reasons for coming to this area and many people who come as holiday makers recognize this and eventually return to live here.The average hours of sunshine per day ranges from around 6 hours in winter to a full 12 hours at the height of summer. This compares to the London average of 1 hour in January and February to a maximum of 7 hours in June. Rain on the Costa Calida is rare, especially in the summer months - the total annual rainfall averages 5 to 6 cm (2 to 2 1/2 inches) on the coastal plain, although the inland mountainous areas are slightly wetter. The Costa Calida stretches from the Mar Menor south to Almeria - where the Costa del Sol commences.
La Manga del Mar Menor
La Manga del Mar Menor is more commonly known as the La Manga Strip, and is a strip of land 21 Km long and 300 metres wide which separates the Mediterranean Sea from the Mar Menor (Small Sea). Along it,s coast on both sides, there are beautiful Blue Flag beaches with white sands, ideal for family holidays with different beaches offering different activities, or just nothing at all! The area is popular with coastal walkers, cyclists, and those looking for a wide variety of water-sports and diving. The Mar Menor is the largest lagoon in Europe and has a surface area of 130 sq km and a maximum depth of 8 metres. The crystal clear waters are warm, calm and rich in salts and minerals. In fact the temperature never falls below 18degrees. In certain areas of the Mar Menor therapeutic clays can be found. These are a favourite with the Spanish tourists who cover themselves with the clay and then bake in the hot sun. It is said to be good for skin complaints, rheumatism and arthritis etc. There is a enormous range of activities to keep the whole family amused for hours: Beach ... Cycle Hire ... Restaurants ... Quad Bikes ... Go Karts ... Shops ... Sailing ... Supermarkets ... Jet Skis ... Beach Bars ... Casino ... Scuba Diving ... Golf ... Boat trips ... Therapeutic Sands ... Kite Surfing ...

“A little bit of paradise”
We have now been here just over a week and the sun is yet to stop shining. The apartment is everything and more that was advertised. We have sat out on the balcony in the evening sipping a glass or two watch the fantastic sunsets. The beach is just across the road and is fantastic with a sea temperature of 25 yes 25 degrees. The surrounding area is lovely and the walks superb. I cannot recommend this apartment to highly.
“Better weather than UK in February!”
Weather pleasant. Accommodation good; location useful. Easy to get to surrounding highlights by bus. 'Traditional' Spain it isn't - high rise everywhere and not a fishing village in sight! That said, everybody welcoming and food excellent. Nice and quiet upside; many places yet to open downside. You pays your money...
“The ideal location for a relaxing family holiday”
We arrived after a 5 hour delay to a warm greeting from Jo. The apartment was well equipped and spacious for a family of 4. Our sons (aged 10 & 13) enjoyed the sat TV and wi-fi. The view over the marina was lovely - always passing boats to look at, and a great spot for the sunsets. The pool was a great size and never over crowded. We hired a car for a couple of days at the start and again at the end of our stay, which was fine, as we were happy just to chill by the pool or stroll to the nearby beaches. The bus up and down the strip was useful for any other journeys - we took the bus one stop along to the marina for our evening meals then walked back. Ben & Jerry's was a big hit! The location of the apartment is in a Spanish area - not many Brits abroad - ideal!! The local people were very friendly - the supermarket just along the road ideal. We would also recommend the churros 'van' just across the road from the supermarket - churros and hot chocolate for a holiday breakfast treat! The apartment is definitely worth the 45 minute drive from the airport. The holiday can be as lively or as relaxing as you choose! The only downside was the problem with some ants, but not enough to spoil our stay - we just kept all the food in the fridge!! Prices to eat out were very reasonable anyway.
“A great spot in a superb location, with great views of the harbour”
We were met promptly on arrival with the keys and shown around the apartment by a very friendly lady who recommended places to eat and where the best beaches were. The apartment was clean, well equipped and suited our needs. We are a family with two young girls accompanied by a friend and her teenage daughter, There was adequate space and plenty of kitchen ware to be able to eat in which we mostly did as we were holidaying on a tight budget. We ate out at Pacqubote which had a very varied menu, prompt service and tasty food. Great beach with inflatables to enjoy at a cost of 5 euro's for as long as you wanted. There were a fare few jellyfish but they were not stinging ones. (this was on the lake side, we never saw any jellyfish on the Med side). We also ate out at a pizza place in the harbour a very short drive away which did the best pizza I have ever had. The swimming pool was ideal giving the girls plenty of swimming practice, it was never busy and offered shade from the sun if needed. In fact by day two Rachel had learnt to swim without armbands and managed to swim all the way across which was at least 25 meters so ideal for doing some lengths. As we had hired a car we ventured further afield but there was really no need as the closest beaches on both the Med side and the salt lake side were as good as any. We all covered ourselves with the therapeutic mud from the salt lake then walked across to the Med side which was nice and quiet for a swim. The supermarket was ideal and just a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. There were plenty of bars to go for a drink all selling ice creams and most selling food. Evenings on the balcony watching the boats go by, drinking and playing cards was just heavenly and made for a very relaxing holiday. We would highly recommend this apartment and will no doubt be using it again ourselves in the future.
“Beautiful apartment - wonderful views of the harbour”
What a lovely friendly welcome by Jo - wonderful apartment with beautiful views over the harbour. Lovely to have a supermarket within a very short walk as with the extreme heat you don't want to be walking far with your shopping. Nice Spanish restaurant, again within walking distance, just across the road. Also the Med is just across the road so you can beach or pool very, very easily.
“Lovely apartment, great location, beautiful view.”
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Los Miradores in July/August 2011. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and the facilities excellent. Proximity to beach, shops etc is great. Only downside is that although the apartment overlooks the Tomas Maestr Marina, with its abundance of restaurants, bars and shops, it is a long 20 min walk to get there! The bus service, however was very reliable.
