This luxury 6th floor apartment is in a prime position at an exclusive part of the strip with stunning views over the marina, Mar Menor and mountains beyond.
There are restaurants nearby and the marina has many excellent restaurants and bars and from here you can take boat trips, hire boats, go on a diving trip or take the foot ferry across the Mar Menor.
Long stretches of unspoilt beaches and the famous therapeutic mud are only a few hundred metres away, and a great variety of water sports close by.
The apartment has a wide balcony, full air conditioning, two double bedrooms with balcony and great views, a fitted kitchen and two bathrooms. Free wifi.
The Costa Calida/Murcia region:
The La Manga Strip has a unique position in Europe, between two Seas, the Mediterranean Sea and the crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor. The apartment is located overlooking the largest marina in the area, near the tip of the strip.
This part of Spain is famous for its salt lakes (salt is a major export). This has a major knock on effect on humidity levels, and as a result the air is much dryer than in other parts of Spain & Europe. The low humidity levels coupled with a mild climate, means the WHO (World Health Organisation) have rated this part of Spain one of the healthiest climates on the planet.
The Mar Menor is an immense lake of warm, tranquil salt water, rich in salts and iodine and noted for its therapeutic properties. The waters are a magnificent natural swimming pool with temperatures maintained by a sun that shines for an average of 320 days each year. The maximum depth of 6.5m makes it an ideal location to enjoy the many water sports available.
La Manga Del Mar Menor / Los Miradores del Puerto area:
The two distinct seas, soft breezes, sunny days and significant sporting infrastructures makes La Manga a water sports paradise. No one need travel far to practice the water sport of their choosing; sailing, diving, water skiing, kite surfing, windsurfing, jet skiing and most other nautical sports.
Apart from the water sports, La Manga offers a great variety of other activities to suit all tastes such as hang-gliding, horse riding, fishing, walking and bird watching at the nearby nature reserves.
The world famous La Manga Club is 20 minutes drive away with many quality golf courses close by including DeVere Roda Golf, La Serena and Hacienda del Alamo. There are tennis clubs with courts open to the public all year round, plus paddle tennis and squash. In addition there is a roller-skating rink and full size go-kart track. The road which runs through La Manga has been built with a cycle-lane and there is an absence of hills throughout the strip. You can hire cycles which will be delivered directly to the apartment. Blue flag beaches and boat trips also make this a favourite place for all the family. There are boat trips from the marina to local islands in both the Med and the Mar Menor. One of the boats (which sails past the apartment) has a glass bottom to view the marine life.
The historic towns of Cartagena (30 mins away) and Murcia (60 mins drive) are well worth visiting for the shopping, Roman monuments and sightseeing. Cartagena is full of interesting architecture, has many museums, and has an historic marina with tourist trips around the harbour. The shopping in the historic center is great, and Cartagena also has an upmarket Corte Ingles department store.
There are towns nearby for sightseeing and shopping including Los Belones and Santiago de la Ribera. You can take the foot ferry from the marina to Santiago de la Ribera, the Spanish version of the Red Arrows practices here.
Further afield you can take a scenic tour through the local mountains or visit the flamingos at the San Pedro salt lakes.
You don't need a car to enjoy a holiday here since buses run up and down the strip all day and there are bus services to the local towns such as Los Belones and Cartagena.
Relax and enjoy - in La Manga you can rest, practice sport and also get to know the local history, or participate in the traditional fiestas of the area, the choice is yours.
This was the perfect location for a quiet break in the winter sunshine. The apartment was perfect for the two of us, although it has full facilities for four. It is very modern, clean and well designed. The owner has thought of everything and all information to get the most from your stay is provided. The views from the balcony are simply stunning and we cannot imagine a better view in the vicinity. There are good beaches, bars, supermarkets and restaurants within walking distance. We stayed at this apartment in the middle of winter so are unable to give an impression of the area and its facilities in the summertime. The La Manga strip is a long sand bar which encloses the Mar Menor, it is a dead-end and the apartment is 14km along the strip, so you will need to take this into account if you are thinking of doing regular travelling to other parts of Murcia. For us in a hire car, it was not a problem, because at this time of year the roads are empty! Apart from activities on or in the water, the local area offers plenty for the walker, cyclist or scenic driver and the weather has a better sunshine record than other Spanish coastal locations, we had sun every day.

We loved the apartment, specially the wonderful view over the marina from all the rooms, but also several details that make it so comfortable (the owners guest manual with up to date schedules, the DVD collection, etc.). The apartment was very clean and both key handovers (on arrival and on departure) went ok. We had a very relaxing time at the apartment and enjoyed getting to know La Manga, specially the less populated area after Tomas Maestre bridge, where Los Miradores is.
It was a great week, a wonderful time in a wonderful apartment! It is a very comfortable place with fabulous views to the marina and the sea. The owner has thought about all the items that you can need during a relaxing time as DVDs, CDs, magazines, maps, plans, recipes and yes it makes the difference ! I am already missing the breakfast in the balcony just facing the time going by ... Thank you for such a wonderful time and a lovely place.
We spent a splendid holiday in this large, nice and clean apartment. we enjoyed the marvellous views from the balcony, boats are passing in front of you!
We had a very enjoyable holiday at the apartment, which was comfortable, clean and had a well equipped kitchen. As we were there in July the air condtioning was always good to come back too. The views from the balcony make it easy to spend much of the day just boat watching. We swam in the both sides of the sea which are just a few minutes walk away. The Med side was always quiet and clean. We made use of the on site Supermarket which is well stocked and used the local bus service to visit other areas of the Strip. We came home with lots of memories, feeling relaxed and sad to leave.
The apartment was great - enjoyed a beer or two on the balcony while watching the boats go by.
It was a little quiet for the teenage lads but they did enjoy the pool and snorkelling - they also appreciated the DVDs. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her facial and massage at La Manga club and would definitely recommend it. Thanks for your help with the organisation of the holiday.
We had a super holiday at your apartment and were most comfortable. We like the Mar Menor coast very much for the fact it is not over touristy. This helped us to feel that we were really away from it all..
We had a wonderful holiday in no small part due to the quality of your apartment and would be more than happy to recommend you to our friends.
We really enjoyed the Mar Menor mud beach and the Med which are both so clean. Your apartment was just great with everything we needed.
"Wow, what a fantastic view..."
"Wow, what a fantastic view...""It's great to sit on the balcony and watch the boats jostle for position when the drawbridge opens...""Just to let you know that we had a fabulous week at the apartment which is perfect! (you have thought of everything). The first thing I noticed was the fantastic view of the marina, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the world go by! We particularly enjoyed the Italian and Mexican restaurants at the marina. Airport pickups were also stress free so yes we feel we had a 5 star holiday.""The apartment was great - enjoyed a beer or two on the balcony while watching the boats go by.It was a little quiet for the teenage lads but they did enjoy the pool and snorkelling - they also appreciated the DVD's.
