La Manga strip area: La Manga is a strip of land 22kms long which is placed between two seas, the Mediterranean and the Mar Menor(the little sea).The Mar Menor is a large lake of warm salt water, which is famous for its therapeutic properties. It has an average depth of 1.7m, which makes it ideal for various water sports. The depth around the shore is only 0.5m and this along with the warm water temperatures makes La Manga the perfect place for children to safely enjoy the beach. The apartment is close to shops, a new supermarket(200m approx) and restaurants and there is a regular bus service, up and down the strip at low fares, if you prefer a wider selection to choose from.
There is a sailing school just 15mins walking distance from the apartment offering a good variety of water sports. From novice to to the experienced, they cater for all. There are various boat trips leaving from the port daily. These will take you around the vast coast of the Mar Menor allowing you to see various villages on route.
The market at Cabo de Palos, the south end of the strip, is on a Sunday from 8am- 2pm and is very busy so, get there sooner rather than later! The ferry leaves the port of Tomas Meastre on a Wednesday for the market on the mainland. Scuba diving has become ever more popular in this area and there are schools in La Manga and Cabo de Palos, who will organise daily trips by boat and offering equipment to rent for newcomers. Also in La Manga area are tennis clubs with courts open to the public all year round, plus a roller skating rink and a full sized go kart track. The road which runs through La Manga strip has been built to offer the cyclist the safety of a cycle lane and because there are hardly any hills on the strip it is ideal for cycling. There is a nine hole golf course towards the end of the strip and the world famous La Manga Club is a short drive away. The club also offers a vast range of other activities and has superb spa facilities, which are open to the public all year.

Booked this property in the summer for a weeks holiday with my girlfriend.
Couldn't fault the apartment in any way, it was exactly what we were looking for.
We will definitely be looking to book again for next year.
The information we received from the owner regarding the flat & the local/surrounding area was spot on & really made it an amazing holiday. 10/10
This is our third stay in this apartment. We love everything about this apartment and area. The apartment is spacious and well equipped with beautiful views from the 3 balconies. The pool is never busy and the well stocked supermarket is only a 2 minute stroll. We found a perfect spot on the Med, quiet, even at the beginning of August and next to a lovely little bar complete with toilet and shower. There are many bars and restaurants within a 20 minute walk. Seriously considering a 4th visit.
The apartment was nice and roomy, everything seemed new, cared and worked perfectly fine. It even had some extra balls to play at the beach and sunshades, which were pretty handy. The zone itself is quiet too if you just want to relax.
Another thing to note is the familiar treatment I was given since the very beggining.
El apartamento era genial y espacioso, todo parecia bastante nuevo y cuidado y funcionaba perfectamente. Incluso encontramos balones extra y sombrillas, las cuales fueron muy utiles. La zona es tranquila y alejada del ajetreo si quieres simplemente relajarte. Otra cosa a tener en cuenta fue el trato familiar que recibimos desde el primer momento. Genial!
We have just had our second holiday in this apartment and intend to go back next year. The accomodation is excellent. very well equipped with everything you need. The pool is great and there is a very good spar shop within a five minute walk. It is perfect for a lovely relaxing holiday and the beaches which again are within walking distance are perfect. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
I would deIfinitely recommend this apartment. Customer service was good, as was the onsite management.
It was clean, fully equipped even down to buckets and spades, and inflatables for the children to use in the pool. There were even beach seats. Basically everything you would need. The pool is large and was lovely, clean and warm and not too busy. Plenty of room for everyone as was the baby pool.
I would recommend this to a friend.
The view of the marina was lovely.
This is suitable for everyone, couples, families.
Location was good, some restaurants within walking distance, beaches within walking distance.
You could manage without a car if you are happy to stay in the local area, There are regular buses that go up and down the strip. However the distance from the airport is a good one so it is worthwhile having a car.
My Girlfriend and I have just returned from a great holiday in La Manga.
The apartment was perfect and was very clean with lovely views from the balconies.
The owner was extremely helpful and was happy to provide any information we needed.
I would recommend this as the perfect break for young couples, families, and if your looking for a relaxing break in the sun then this is for you.
The pool was great for sunbathing during the day (sunloungers provided in the apartment), pool was large, really clean and well maintained.
In the evenings there are a number of nice restaurants/bars a short walk from the apartment. The supermarket is 2mins walk from the property and really handy for everything from food to UK newspapers. There are also a number of very nice beaches close by.
Would definatly stay here again, highly recommended!
The La Manga strip has a unique position between two seas.On one side is the Mediterranean sea and on the other is the clear waters of the Mar Menor (little sea).The apartment is situated over looking the Tomas Maestre marina and the canal that joins the two seas.There are a huge range of activities to enjoy in the area such as all water sports, cycling (the strip has good cycle lanes) and of course golf.There are several top class golf courses in the area and the most famous the La Manga club is only 20min drive away.If you are not looking for activity, then look no further than the beautiful beaches within minutes from the apartment.With soft breezes and the sound of lapping water you can relax your days away on the sands.The Mar Menor is particularly safe for children as it is very shallow and warm.The historic towns of Cartagena and Murcia are well worth a visit by car or by bus as there is a good bus service that runs the strip.Cabo DePalos has a good market on a Sunday morning.
Other Activities: Go karting, jet skis.
Golf: This property is approx 30 mins drive from the famous La Manga Golf Club. There are several other courses within easy driving distance.
