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.

  • Since many years we spend a few days / weeks in this pleasant corner of Spain. Mar Menor is almost like a small inland sea formed by two Earth banks that do not quite meet. Both the side of salins to San Pedro, to Cabo de Palos through Los Alcazares can benefit from the quiet of the Menor sea and the more troubled side of the Mediterranean. Ideal for a family holiday. If you go in the spring go buy your excellent, sweet, and juicy oranges at local markets currently 5kg to... €2 - if not the reverse! But there are also all the other fruits and vegetables, textiles, etc. Notice to lovers!
