Overview

La Manga Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4, south-facing balcony with fabulous views

These luxury 1st and 6th floor apartments are in a prime position on La Manga strip. The large south facing balconies have stunning 180 degree unrestricted views out over the Tomas Maestra marina, Med, Mar Menor and mountains beyond.

There is a wide selection of excellent restaurants and bars nearby. The pools and short tennis court are surrounded by a grassed area with benches and palm trees. Long stretches of unspoilt Mar Menor and Mediterranean beaches can be found just a few hundred metres away.

The apartments each sleep four people and are equipped with a wide balcony with views directly over the marina, full air conditioning (cool & heat), two bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin), 2 bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen, each bedroom has its own balcony with stunning views. Free internet access is provided for your wifi devices and you can use them to watch international TV channels (including UK BBC, ITV) via the internet for free. The 1st floor apartment also has UK TV via satellite.

The apartments are ideal for a relaxing holiday just watching the boats sail by from the comfort of the balcony, or for an activity holiday from a great variety of water sports close by.

La Manga: Thanks to the geographic conditions and the climate, La Manga del Mar Menor is probably the best place in the world for practicing nautical sports. The two distinct seas, soft breezes, sunny days and significant sporting infrastructures makes La Manga a water sports paradise. No one need travel far to practice their water sport; sailing, canoeing, water skiing, windsurfing, kite surfing, jet skiing, diving and most other nautical sports.

Apart from the water sports, the area offers a great variety of other activities to suit all tastes such as sight seeing, guided walking tours, horse riding, fishing, pleasure flights, coastal hikes and bird watching at the nearby nature reserves. The world famous La Manga Club is 20 minutes drive away with many quality golf courses nearby. There are tennis clubs with courts open to the public all year round, plus paddle tennis and squash. In addition there is a roller-skating rink and full size go-kart track.

The road which runs through La Manga has been built to offer cyclists the safety of a cycle-lane and there’s an absence of hills throughout the strip. Bike hire is available nearby. Blue flag beaches and boat trips also make this a favourite place for all the family. There are boat trips from the marina to local islands in both the Med and the Mar Menor.

In La Manga you can rest, practice sport and also get to know the local history, or participate in the traditional fiestas of the area.

Cuisine - A world of flavours is offered to the visitors of La Manga, and the typically Mediterranean style of cooking is available in the restaurants. This includes paellas, fresh fish, freshly grilled meats and succulent salads. There are a variety of excellent restaurants at the marina including Italian, French, Mexican, and Asian.

Local Area: The historic towns of Cartagena (40 mins away) and Murcia (60 mins drive) are well worth visiting for the shopping, Roman monuments and sightseeing. Cartagena is full of interesting architecture, has many museums, and has an historic marina with tourist trips around the harbour. The shopping in the historic centre is great. Murcia also has a zoo, water park and acquarium.

There are small towns nearby for sightseeing and shopping including Los Belones and Santiago de la Ribera. You can take the foot ferry from the marina to Santiago de la Ribera, the Spanish air display team practices here.

You can take a scenic tour through the local mountains or visit the flamingos at the San Pedro salt lakes.

You don't need a car to enjoy a holiday here since buses run up and down the strip all day and there are bus services to the local towns such as Los Belones and Cartagena.

Relax and enjoy.

Great apartment in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a month in this lovely apartment. It is well equipped and very comfortable. There is a wealth of information in the apartment to inform your stay. The balcony is well positioned for watching the marina and gets the sun all day. Our stay was out of season and consequently the strip was very quiet with many shops and restaurants closed, however there were still many to choose from. Would recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I agree it is a great place to visit out of season, most relaxing sitting on the south facing balcony overlooking the marina. As you say there are many local restaurants open all year round as are the supermarkets. For serious shopping and the big brand names you can't beat the nearby beautiful city of Cartagena and also Cartagena's huge out of town shopping mall. Cartagena is also renowned for its interesting architecture, museums and cultural events, one of my favourite places to visit. Cheryl :)

Holiday in La Manga

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable and has wonderful views over the harbour. Great pool especially if you enjoy swimming as it is big with a separate baby pool. No need for a car as public transport including ferry reliable and easy to use. Lovely restaurants within walking distance - extensive choice. Airport transfers can be arranged which suited us really well. Great holiday, we would recommend it without hesitation.

It kept getting better

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. The apartment was spotless and was everything we expected AND more, there was nothing more we could have asked for.

The views from the Balcony where excellent and watching the "traffic"

when the bridge was lifted was an added bonus.

The local Café/Bar was excellent. it fed and watered (yeah right) us on 3 of our 7 nights.

We used the ferry and even got the driver to drop us off on "our" side

to save us a walk from the Marina.

A BIG thank you to Cheryl and if we return to the area, it would be a condition that we would have stay in the apartment again

Peaceful , excellent views , superb apartment .

  • 5 of 5

As a 50 something couple with no kids, perfect place for a peaceful week, no noisy neighbours.

Everything worked and the apartment was spotless.

Those with family need not worry as the beach is but a few minutes walk and the owner has left beach toys and towels for the use of.

I you have any questions about boat journeys, times, restaurants or nearby shops for essentials all information can be gathered looking through the helpful folders in the apartment.

Over all a very pleasant experience was had and would recommend this apartment to couples and families alike.

Car: not necessary

The La Manga Strip has a unique position in Europe, between two Seas, the Mediterranean Sea and the crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor. The apartment is located overlooking the largest marina in the area, near the tip of the strip.

This part of Spain is famous for its salt lakes (salt is a major export). This has a major knock on effect on humidity levels, and as a result the air is much dryer than in other parts of Spain & Europe. The low humidity levels coupled with a mild climate, means the WHO (World Health Organisation) have rated this part of Spain one of the healthiest climates on the planet.

There are frequent low cost flights to both Murcia's San Javier and Alicante airports from many UK airports. Murcia Airport is a 40 minute drive and Alicante is 90 minutes. Taxis and car hire are available at both airports and airport transfers can be arranged.

A car isn't necessary since there is a frequent bus service up and down the strip and to nearby towns such as Cartagena.

Other Activities: jet skiing, boat trips and hire, go karting, quad bikes, kite surfing, beach bars, golf including the world famous La Manga club.

The historic cities of Cartagena (40 mins away) and Murcia (60 mins drive) are well worth visiting for the shopping, Roman monuments and sightseeing. Cartagena is full of interesting architecture, has many museums, and an historic marina with tourist trips around the harbour. The shopping in the historic centre is great and the fiestas are renound. Murcia also has a zoo, water park and acquarium.

You can take a scenic tour through the local mountains or visit the flamingos at the San Pedro salt lakes.

Relax and enjoy - in La Manga you can rest, practice sport and also get to know the local history, or participate in the traditional fiestas of the area, the choice is yours.

Golf: La Manga Club is 20 minutes drive away with many quality golf courses close by including DeVere Roda Golf (20 minutes), La Serena (20 minutes) and Hacienda del Alamo (40 minutes).

La Manga Club is home to 3 magnificent 18 hole championship courses which all benefit from uniquely tranquil surroundings with superb views. La Manga Club is considered one of Europe's finest golfing destinations and has played host to many international tournaments.

Roda Golf Course is constructed within an excellent 18-hole, par 72 golf course exclusively designed by Dave Thomas, one of the most prestigious European golf designers.

La Serena Golf & Beach Resort is superbly situated just 5 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches & calming shores of the Mar Menor.

Hacienda del Alamo was awarded 'International Golf Resort of the Year 2007'. The spectacular clubhouse has stunning views all the way to the Mar Menor and to the mountains of Murcia.

Other golf courses nearby include La Finca, Campoamor, Altorreal, Mar Menor Golf, El Valle, La Torre, Mosa Trajectum, Villamartin and Las Ramblas.

I can provide further information about the local courses and booking your golf tee times.
