Mar Menor, Region of Murcia

(3.5/5 based on 300 reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Santiago de la Ribera trip itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Mar Menor and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
