La Manga is a very unique resort on the Costa Calida that is known as the “paradise between two seas”. On one side of the narrow strip of land you will find the Mediterranean Sea. On the other side you will find the salty, rejuvenating and often quite warm Mar Menor. You can take your pick as to which side you want to relax on from day to day and La Manga is a popular resort with families, couples and friends.

La Manga is a bustling tourist resort throughout most of the year but the busiest tourist season is during the summer months where temperatures are at their hottest, the beaches are bouncing and the whole resort is buzzing with activity. However, it is also a popular resort during the spring and autumn months as temperatures are still very comfortable and you can spend full days at the beach or out on the streets since the weather isn’t too intense.
As well as an almost endless choice of beaches, La Manga has many other amazing things to do and see in the region. There is a prominent sports harbour where you can hire a variety of sports equipment and learn how to sail. On Sunday mornings you will find the lively Mercadillo de Cabo - a flea market selling fruits, garments and other wares. Excursions to places like Cartagena and Murcia are easily manageable and because the La Manga strip is very flat, it is the ideal place to go for a morning walk, jog or cycle.
There is a wide range of accommodation options on offer in La Manga, with the majority of them being large, luxurious hotels or small, more budget-friendly hotels. Because the strip is quite narrow, buildings are built upwards rather than outwards, so you will find less villas and apartments here. The cuisine in this part of the world is exquisite. You will find many fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood from both the Mediterranean and Mar Menor, traditional tapas bars and international venues that cater mostly to tourists.
