La Manga Del Mar Menor Beaches
With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, swimmers and sun worshippers will find plenty of locations to swim at in La Manga Del Mar Menor, or just lie by the local pool!
There are numerous beaches in La Manga Del Mar Menor, on both Mediterranean and Mar Menor coasts. The Mar Menor beaches are particularly popular with families with young children, because the warm, shallow water offers bathing fun for all ages.
La Manga Del Mar Menor, or Little Sea, is a unique area running the entire left side of the strip. The huge saltwater lake is the largest in Europe, separated from the Mediterranean by glorious white beaches on La Manga Del Mar Menor and the vibrant resort of La Manga Del Mar Menor. As well as its natural importance, Mar Menor's waters are known for their healing properties, and it is still a place of recreation and relaxation in La Manga Del Mar Menor.
La Manga Mar Menor Boat Trips
The foot ferry on La Manga Del Mar Menor provides regular service from the Tomas Mastre Marina across the Mar Menor to the town of Santiago de la Ribera. The trip across the Mar Menor lake is pleasant and takes half an hour. A market is held on Wednesdays and the Spanish equivalent of the Red Arrows practices here, so you will often see an impressive air display.
There are excellent sandy beaches at Santiago, La Manga Del Mar Menor and some interesting shops. It is relaxing to sit at one of the cafes on the front just watching the world go by or to have lunch in one of the fish restaurants on the beach.
You can also take boat trips out into the Mediteranean. These trips last about 90 minutes and will give you the full taste and flavour of the La Manga Del Mar Menor area. Highly recomended.
