You most definitely do not need to hire a car if you do not want to as everything you need is well within walking distance.
Mar Menor: The gently sloping shallow waters of the Mar Menor mean it is much warmer than the Mediterranean, making it safer for young children as it is very placid & there is very good visibility across the water.You can walk out for many metres with the warm water still only lapping your thighs & no big waves, no tides or strong currents, so you can relax & enjoy your day at the beach. With the many cafes & bars dotted along the beach it's a great way to spend the day & soak up the sun. Every kind of water sport is available!
The mineral-rich water of the Mar Menor is renowned for its health-giving properties & there are nearby thermal baths which have existed since Roman times. The very salty water in the Mar Menor lagoon (San Pedro round to La Manga) is supposed to be very good to bathe in, especially for skin conditions. Many people come to the northern end of the Mar Menor to cover themselves in the black mud from the salinas, which is supposed to be full of all sorts of nutrients.
Flights & Transfers: Costa Calida is now more accessible than ever with numerous low cost airlines flying into both Murcia (San Javier MJV) & Alicante from all over the UK. There is a 2nd airport planned shortly just outside Murcia city itself.

Shopping/Leisure: Los Alcazares was named after the palaces that stood in medieval times & is still unspoilt, retaining much of its original Spanish charm. Most of the narrow streets lead directly to the 7 km, sandy Blue Flag beach. There are plenty of restaurants & beach bars providing a wide range of cuisine. Los Alcazares offers a non-package-tour environment. With its wonderful all year round climate it has something for all seasons. The town's market days are Tuesday & Saturday when a wide variety of goods are available. There are also many modern high street shops & shopping malls within easy reach. The historic city of Murcia, is only 30 minutes by car, with its many squares & narrow streets & the city of Cartagena, which is only 15 minutes drive away, are both well worth exploring for their shops, architecture and history. A 40 minute drive will take you to Elche's vast shopping complex, where you can buy locally-made shoes (only available from Bond Street couture houses) at vastly reduced price
