The Mar Menor is the sheltered inland lagoon between La Manga and the mainland. Float by the shore or swim in the depths. The Mar Menor’s calm waters and gently sloping beaches have made it an international centre for water sports, but they also mean it’s perfect for young families.
Sun, sea and… sport?
If you’re a sports fan, the luxurious golf resort La Manga Club might ring familiar, with its three magnificent 18-hole championship courses. The club also boasts five international-standard football pitches at its stadium about 10km inland, and hosts winter and pre-season training camps for top clubs and national teams.
