La Manga del Mar Menor, Municipality of Cartagena
Fully air-conditioned apartment with shared pool. Situated in a fantastic location, on the La Manga strip with stunning views of both the Mar Menor and Mediterranean sea. The Mar Menor side has a lovely little cove not even 1 minutes walk away and again it's ideal for families with young children. The beach next to the apartment is long, wide, golden sand on the Mediterranean sea. It's fantastic for bodyboarding, snorkelling or just playing in the waves.

The pool is set beside the beach and offers amazing views if you really can't face the golden sand. It's easy to get to the Marina on foot from here, so you can enjoy the fab bars, restaurants and soak in the atmosphere. The nearest supermarket is the superb quality El Corte Inglés near the Marina.

About the neighborhood
Described by the tourist board as “A paradise between two seas”. It is the narrow strip of land that separates the ‘two seas’ of the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean for about 20 kilometres. Famous for its clean air, the choice of beaches is almost endless, from the wild dunes to the south, to the gently sloping safe beaches of the Mar Menor. Being shallow, the Mar Menor is often a little warmer than the Mediterranean. La Manga has a fine sports harbour where you can hire all manner of water-sports equipment, including sailing dinghies. Lessons are available too. Being completely flat, La Manga is very easy to get about for walkers and cyclists alike.
