Lo Pagán and "therapeutic mud baths"

A journey through the Mar Menor proper commences in Lo Pagán, a town two kilometers (11/4 miles) from San Pedro del Pinatar with the largest area of open-air mud baths in all of Europe.

These mud baths, known as Las Charcas de las Salinas, are recommended for all types of skin and rheumatic ailments. A good idea is to combine these mud baths with saltwater baths since Mar Menor waters have excellent therapeutic properties due to the high content of mineral salts and iodine. Hotels and other establishments offer specialized treatments.

In addition, Lo Pagán has various tranquil beaches, ideal for boating and swimming, including Villanitos, La Puntica, and the area of Los Molinos.

The Lonja de Pescado (fish exchange), located at the esplanade of the port, can be visited during the early morning hours from Monday through Saturday. Nighttime diversion can be found in the area known as La Curva.
