Views good along the beach, worth cycling along. Sun beds and parasols ok value, facilities along beach ok. Water very warm but murky and feels dirty in August. Probably nicest part of los alcazares.

Perfect beach and mini sea for families and friends to enjoy the Spanish sunshine. Bars and restaurants not far away and odd local shop. Unspoilt

We made our way to La Manga from nearby Cartagena, drove to the end then found a lovely chiringuito on the Mar Menor for a spot of Tapas and sunbathing.

Arriving early is key to get a great spot also before Sun burns through mist is earily beautiful. Beaches are lovely long and clean. Water is salty and a little murky but warm and inviting. After 200 yards we managed to achieving chest height depth. Lots of things to do along huge exspanse from bars to watersports. Tip: arrive early... More

Very good place for drinks with a great view and patio leading on to the beach, not very cheap but not to expensive and the view is worth the extra euros, the natural smoothies are delicious and refreshing.

This is a really lovely place. There are many beaches, marinas, bars and restaurants dotted around this inland sea with wonderful scenery. You will see many cruisers and sailing boats on the Mar Menor when the weather is good. Many a happy hour spent here.
