A vacation by a blue lagoon

A seaside spit of sand that stretches across Mar Menor on Spain's southern Mediterranean coast to create a sparkling azure seaside lagoon, the La Manga sandbar is today home to a stretch of luxury resorts, high-rise hotels, bars, restaurants, and beautiful La Manga vacation rentals. Famed for its water sports, golf courses, and the La Manga soccer cup, the region also boasts a coastline full of beautiful long sandy beaches, pretty coves, and conservation areas.

Having fun in La Manga

The golf courses of the La Manga Club are probably the area's biggest draw, with the region's Mediterranean climate making these perfectly manicured fairways and greens a delight for golfers throughout the year. From your La Manga vacation rental, you can also find local sailing, windsurfing, and waterskiing schools that run lessons for novices, while more experienced water sports fans can hire canoes or catamarans. The buzzing bars and restaurants of La Manga Club make for a vibrant nightlife scene. Alternatively, you can hit the spa, or shop at local commercial center El Zoco Alcazaba.

Life in La Manga

The fresh seafood, mouth-watering local produce, and delicious wines from local bodegas and vineyards make eating out a very pleasurable experience in this region of Murcia. Venture beyond the big resorts to enjoy this region at its best. Wandering the local street markets is a great treat for foodies and anyone looking for some tasty souvenirs – if you are willing to travel a little further from town, you can find one almost every day of the week. Don't miss the stroll out of town across thyme-scented headlands to Faro Cabo de Palos, a lighthouse sitting atop a dramatic rocky cove.

Enjoying the Spanish sun in La Manga

La Manga marks the start of the Costa Calida and, on this warm stretch of coast, visitors can enjoy a Mediterranean climate and pleasant sea temperatures. The long, hot summers are punctuated by short, mild winters, making La Manga a year-round destination. The winter months are dominated by the soccer matches of the La Manga cup, but there are many other local religious and seasonal events throughout the year. The nearby town of Cartagena, for example, plays host to a fun historical Carthaginians and Romans festival every fall.

Explore Murcia from La Manga

The coastline of La Manga is dominated by long, sunny beaches and clear turquoise waters with gentle Mediterranean breakers. Venture a little further from your La Manga vacation rental and you can discover the flamingo-filled wetlands of Salinas y Arenales de San Pedro del Pinatar and the lush wildlife preserve of Calblanque, Monte de las Cenizas y Pena del Aguila Regional Park. Here, you can follow trails and boardwalks through the dunes to beautiful golden sands and some of the most photo-worthy beaches in Spain.
