La Manga - guide to La Manga see also hotels in La Manga Spain

The descriptive name of La Manga (the sleeve) holds an interesting geographical layout which has become one of the symbols that best identifies the coast of Murcia as a tourist resort: a chain that stretches along approximately 24 km from Cabo de Palos to the Punta del Mojón, and is the natural limit of the salt water lake known as the Mar Menor.

Originally, what is now known as La Manga del Mar Menor was a bay open to the Mediterranean; at either end, volcanic reefs gradually held back the sand and sediment that was dragged along by the sea currents to form a sandy column of dunes and rock vegetation and long beaches in contact with two seas: the Mediterranean and the Menor. La Manga is a narrow piece of land with a width that varies between 200 m and 1 and a half km.

La Manga has many hotels, shops, bars, clubs and restaurants. One of the most popular areas with young adults is the Zoco area. La Manga has more than 40 km of 'Blue Flag' beaches which attract a lot of water sports enthusiasts.

It is cut off by natural channels that keep the two seas in contact with each other; the so-called ´golas´ allow water from the Mediterranean into the lake.

The nearest airport is San Javier
