Mar Menor, Region of Murcia

3.4
#2 of 9 in Beaches in Region of Murcia
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 Santiago de la Ribera attractions planner.

    If you like the kilometers of multistoried buildings, no problem. If not go your way. On the kms, recent or very old buildings or being destroyed. The Manga is an arm of land between the 2 seas cut into 2 by 2 times of ways. There are more wild beaches just to the South.

    I have over 30 years going to the mar menor, in particular to Los Alcazares. It has no name which have allowed to happen with this natural landscape. Before it was a zone of crystalline waters in which I have come to see oysters and sea horses. Since last year it is unrecognizable. Aguas turbias, too hot, with jellyfish and little animal diversity... I do not recommend it at all. Still, I'll keep going. But I will bath in the beaches to open sea nearby.

    A lot of pretty coves, beaches, salt, etc. "Untouched" landscapes of buildings and tourists; a taste of the Balearic...
