A family holiday that everybody can enjoy ,
La Manga itself is a fantastic family holiday destination. It has it all – great weather, warm seas with gently sloping beaches, a choice of superb family friendly resorts, excellent cuisine and plenty of water sports to keep both young and old entertained.

The two main provinces in this region are MURCIA and Almeria.

This stretch of coastline runs from San Pedro del Pinatar, at the northern end of the Mar Menor to south of Puerto de Mazarron. It is in two parts; the most northerly section consists of the La Manga peninsula and Mar Menor, the southerly section extends from the promontory of Cabo de Palos to the resort town of Aguilas.

Like the Costa Blanca South it consists of beaches and rocky promontories with a backdrop of hills and mountains, and above all the unique La Manga peninsula that creates the Mar Menor. Compared with the other southern Costa’s it is still relatively unspoiled and apart from the historical city and port of Cartagena, there are no major towns along the coast

In addition to its geographical attractions, the Costa Calida boasts three nature reserves: at the northern extremity the salt flats of the Regional Park of San Pedro are heavily populated with flamingos, herons, storks and other migratory bird life. Specially made wooden walkways allow tourists to visit the whole area. Along the coastline from Cabo de Palos, westwards towards the village of Portman, is the Calblanque Regional Park, a stretch of virgin coast with hills and empty beaches. The Marine Reserve of the Hormogas Isles, near Cabo de Palos, is world famous

The Mar Menor (or ‘small sea’) located on the Costa Calida, is the largest natural saltwater lagoon in Europe and waters sustain temperatures of approximately 17 degrees centigrade average per year. It is a unique spot offering clean water with peaceful, tide- free bathing on pleasant shores, whatever the time of year

The Mar Menor was created a little over 1000 years ago. Originally a safe little bay, offering shelter for even large ships, it became a natural lagoon when sediments from the sea built up on a small underwater mountain range and closed off the inlet with a sandbar. On its Western side is mainland Spain, and on its Eastern side is La Manga de Mar Menor, a strip of land, (known as The Strip), that is no more than 900 metres at its broadest point with views of the Mar Menor and Mediterranean.
