About the neighborhood
Mar de Cristal is a typical Spanish beach resort in S.E. Spain and sits on the shores of the famous Mar Menor salt water lagoon. Both the resort of Mar de Cristal and the complex at Albatross 3 are ideal for both families and for those seeking a quieter more relaxed break.
The villa is a 5 minute walk from the beach front at Mar de Cristal. The beach itself is ideal for young children as the waters of the Mar Menor are always warm due to the shallow depth and the protection offered by La Manga, the unique strip of land which seperates the Mediteranean from the much calmer lagoon.
The beach front promenade offers a variety of bars and restaurants providing both traditional Spanish and English menus.
