La Manga del Mar Menor

The Mar Menor is separated from the Mediterranean by a narrow strip of land only 22 kilometers (14 miles) wide called La Manga del Mar Menor.

Its sandy beach and crystal-clear waters have made it one of the highest regarded tourist resorts on the Mediterranean, a paradise between seas for all types of water sports and activities that can be practiced at its numerous clubs and sports schools.

La Manga offers swimmers the possibility of choosing between the two seas: on one side, the warm placid waters of the Mar Menor, Cala del Pino, El Galán or El Pedruchillo; on the other, the open waters of the Mediterranean with beaches which include Punta del Estacio, Ensenada del Esparto, and Galúa.

Rounding out the tourist facilities are golf courses, a casino, Tomás Maestre marina, with more than one thousand moorings, magnificent hotels, recreational centers, all types of restaurants, and a lively nightlife during the summer in the area of Plaza Bohemia and the Zoco.

If you proceed to the end of La Manga, passing Tomás Maestre bridge, you come to Veneziola, an area of canals and channels connecting the two seas. Here you can gaze upon the reed beds, where the waters from the two seas mix together naturally, and in the distance, the salt flats, a unique landscape on the Mediterranean.
