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.
