Looking for somewhere to escape the wintery weather  immerse yourself in a wonderful holiday experience by the stunning crystal clear Mar Menor Spain – an ideal destination for those who love the outdoors; surfing, walking, riding or just relaxing and enjoying the views.

All our holiday apartments and villas are within walking distances of the beaches of which are mostly blue flagged rated and sandy. The waters here are 5 degrees warmer than in the Mediterranean Sea, and also much shallower and saltier, making an ideal bathing environment for children

With summer temperatures in Murcia escalating between 25 to 35 degrees Celsius it makes perfect weather to enjoy all activities Mar Menor in Murcia has to offer; from quad biking to chartered boat trips. The mild to warm weather is featured throughout the year with little to almost no rainfall at all. During the high season temperatures can reach high numbers, but do not worry as the low humidity climate means it won’t feel as hot as it actually is. Mar Menor is a wonderful place to stay as you visit the area, with temperatures rarely dropping below 15 degrees celsius, you can visit all year round.

All our holiday rental accommodation offer easy access to the wonderful sandy beaches of the mar menor and dramatic and rugged coast. Our luxury apartment and villas are all within easy reach of tranquility of rural Calblanque Nature Reserve the place to head for with its sandy beaches, sandbanks, hills, salt flats and a back drop of rugged cliffs. All of these features are of great ecological value and not meant to be disturbed and offer breathtaking scenery.

There are a huge number of different birds to be seen on and around the Mar Menor.

From September onwards migratory birds start to return to the area from their summer excursions in Northern Europe. Keep your eyes open and you should be able to spot the different birds I write about in each edition.

This time I will look at the two largest birds to be found on the Mar Menor, the Grey Heron and the Flamingo.

Flamingos are incredibly easy to spot (I’m sure you’ve all seen them). They stand in groups (colonies) in open, shallow, salty water. Their unusual pink colour comes from the food they eat which contains carotene (also found in carrots). Young flamingo are grey in colour and take 3-4 years to become pink.

The Flamingos we see on the Mar Menor are not as bright in colour as those seen in some other parts of the world.

This is due to the fact that there food source does not contain as much carotene. They feed on brine shrimp, algae, insects, crustaceans and small fish.

They feed by drawing tiny animals out of water and mud, by filtering the water through their bill. Most are seen on the salt lakes at San Pedro but they may also be seen on the salt lakes at Playa Paraiso (Salinas de Marchamalo).
