Our Apartment

The best views in La Manga

About La Manga

The area around the apartment is known as the La Manga Strip. The strip is flanked by modern apartment buildings and secluded villas, with restaurants, shops and marinas, sprinkled along the way. English is second language for many people and you will rarely have any trouble, being understood. It is one of the few places in Europe where you only have to cross the road, to get into (or out of) the sea breeze. The region boast over 300 days of Sunshine per year, with average temperatures of 17 degrees in the winter and 27 degrees in the summer.


Every kind of water sport is supported and the shallow clear water, is a snorkeling paradise. You can hire a boat to explore the many bays and islands, or just go for a pleasure cruise. There are numerous golf course in the area, with the La Manga club being the best known. The historic city of Cartagena is 45 minutes drive away. With its many Roman ruins, huge harbour, museums, restaurants and shops. Murcia is a little over an hour away with its Water Park and Zoo, Plus Alicante and Benidorm are only a little further away.


Football fans are not forgotten, as in the area you will find the world renowned La Manga football training facilities, along with tennis and even more golf. The area is also rich with history, with buildings dating back to the times of Roman occupation. There are many excellent museums, including the world renown Naval Museum at Cartagena, Mining at La Union and Aviation at San Javier all less than an hour away from the apartment.


Although we have three pools to choice from, there is also safe bathing on the many sandy beaches within walking distance. These beaches are scattered along the inner lake where it is fairly shallow and slopes gently, as well as the deeper Mediterranean side to the east.


There is a brilliant boat ferry that crosses the inner lake (the Mar Menor), into San Javier and at €5 it is the cheapest way to explore the inner waterway. Buses are also very cheap, typically a couple of euros will get you the length of the strip. The canal running below the apartments is the only navigable path from the inner sea of the Mar Menor out into the Mediterranean, so a lot of water traffic passes below your balcony and windows.

About La Manga

a Manga is one of the best kept secrets outside of Spain! A sort of 'Spanish Florida Keys' The La Manga Strip is just 1km wide (and often much less) and around 20km long, coming to wet end!

With the mirror like Mar Menor to the West and the  Mediterranean to the East, it is blessed with long stretches of often deserted sand covered beaches, with free access to all. Jellyfish can be a problem in high summer anywhere in the Mediterranean, but our council use net walls to keep them out and create safe bathing areas.

Most of the Mar Menor (the inner sea) is very shallow and ideal for safe bathing. The weather is usually around 14-20c in winter and rarely gets too hot in summer, thanks to being surrounded by so much water.

Day and night, summer or winter there is always something special to see and do. It has far more restaurants than you could try in a single holiday. Plus there are a large number of water recreations and transport you can enjoy with the local hire companies, all at very reasonable rates.
