The mar menor is a great place for families. Lots of beaches and little bars on the beaches in summer. Quiet out of season though

Mar Menor is known for water sports and outdoor activities. We visited in October and there were hardly any of the activity centres open and the vast majority of the restaurants and shops were closed. My daughter went paddling in the warm waters of the Mar Menor but luckily we spotted the masses of jellyfish before she got stung. Avoid... More

During summertime very busy on La Manga Strip with especially Spanish tourist who live there to survive the summerheat and abandon their cities. more then enough to do along the shores for kids and grown-ups with of course the many goor (fish-)restaurants.

Maybe it is the time of year, but there was a distinct lack of service, slow and un-attentive' Is it because they feel it not necessary because the diners are holidaymakers and not looking for good service ???? This is a shame for us living close-by, however, it is a case of voting "with your feet" !!!!!

Visited Lo Pagan and the Mar Menor in the height of the season and there was still plenty of space for everyone. The mud baths are wonderful and allow you to chat with the locals whilst waiting for the mud to dry in the sun! Good restaurants and amenities. Being in a conservation area the local wildlife is stunning and... More

The visit to Mar Menor is essential. There is no any other lagoon of sea water with the features of the Mar Menor in the world.

In the netted areas, swimming is nice with calm, warm water. We had no trouble with jellyfish on the right side of the nets.

We went to a section of beach in the middle of the mar Menor. We wouldn't go back. Lagoon was absolutely swarming with jelly fish and littered along the shoreline. Also with seaweed and rubbish. Lovely promenade to walk along but no shops/ bars amenities.
