My husband and I love going to Mar Menor especially the mud baths. It's really good to rub the mud on areas where you have aches and pains. This treatment definitely helps. Relax in the pink salt canal then and you feel a million dollars when you get out.

There are several bars and restaurants and parking along the seafront and side roads. The beaches get busy at weekends as the locals love them... More

Murcia airport is only 10 to 15mins away from most of the area to follow. We visited the area around Los Alcazares, for the first time this year, the whole coastal area of this inland sea water lake was so nice, the peoples really friendly, we found all the little areas going north all had something fresh and interesting to...

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
