MAR MENOR AND LA MANGA

The Mar Menor is an extensive coastal lagoon measuring some 170 square kilometres. Consisting of warm salt waters, this lagoon was originally a bay that opened out to the Mediterranean, but is now separated from the sea by a narrow bank of sand some 24 kilometres long known as La Manga, a curious whim of nature that presents extensive beaches washed by the sea on both sides. Due to the excellent climate in the area this is an ideal spot for pursuing all kinds of water-sports throughout the year.

SAN PEDRO DEL PINATAR

Things to see?
The Regional Park of Las Salinas y Arenales de San Pedro del Pinatar is an ideal place from which to observe migratory birds, such as the flamingo in autumn; it has its own Wetlands Research and Conservation Centre, "Las Salinas", which houses the Park's Visitors Centre. Neither should the Windmills of Quintín and La Calcetera be missed, or stately homes such as those of the Baron of Benifayó and the House of El Reloj, the latter built in the Modernist style. The fish auction at La Lonja, the Museum-Collection of the Sea and the Ethnographic Archaeological Museum are also well worth a visit

The Mar Menor Sea Resort consists of a series of sailing, water-sports and tourist infrastructures grouped around the shores of the Mar Menor, offering visitors an entire range of activities and services at its more than 20 shoreline bases, enabling them to learn, perfect or simply enjoy sailing, water-skiing, scuba diving, motor-boating, canoeing, flysurfing, windsurfing and catamaran sailing. For scuba-diving lovers, these warm waters harbour sea-beds teeming with plant and animal life, such as the Marine Reserve of Cabo de Palos-Islas Hormigas. Scuba divers will also be captivated by the remains of a number of sunken ships. Visitors can also enjoy a number of previously designed routes, either by sea (in canoe, sailing boat or motor-boat), or on land (bicycle, on horseback or on foot), as well as under the water. They can also play golf at the nearby town of Los Belones, on the nearby courses at La Manga Club Resort in Los Belones, at the Mar Menor Golf Resort in Torre-Pacheco, at Roda Golf in San Javier or at La Serena in Los Alcázares.

The magnificent cultural delights on offer include events such as the International Jazz Festival, the International Theatre, Music and Dance Festival, the Músicas del Alma Cycle and the Pecataminuta Music Festival, all of which are staged at San Javier.
