Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Spain  /  Region of Murcia  /  Mar Menor

Mar Menor, Region of Murcia

3.5
Mar Menor is a blue lagoon, a virtual playground for water sports enthusiasts. Try your hand at scuba diving, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, kiteboarding, and even power boating. If sports aren’t your thing, its beaches are perfect places to relax, with soft sand and calm, swimmable waters. A pedestrian walkway leads you to a patch of black mud, which is thought to be wonderful for your skin. Many visitors take mud baths here before jumping into the water to rinse off again. Restaurants are conveniently located along the bank. Put Mar Menor on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lo Pagan attractions planner.
