Accommodation In La Manga
Whether you choose to enjoy the lively hotels along the famous La Manga Strip or relax near the calm shallow waters of the Mar Menor, there are many fantastic accommodation options in this popular area of the Costa Calida. Those arriving by air don't have far to travel as the busy little Murcia-San Javier Airport lies on the northern shores of the Mar Menor, and visitors travelling by car have good road links via the AP-7 motorway and N-332 coastal road.
Comprising a small portion of the southern Mar Menor coastline, an inland area and the La Manga Strip, the entire area of La Manga feels like one huge resort where, depending on your budget and accommodation preference, you can choose to stay in the safe and friendly Camping & Caravaning La Manga or throw caution and cash to the wind and indulge yourself in the spectacular surrounds of the vast La Manga Club.
La Manga Camping
Camping & Caravaning La Manga is very popular for larger groups and families and offers the choice of tent camping, caravan and motorhome pitches, and a choice of cute 1 or 2 bedroom bungalows that can sleep up to 6 people. It is located right next to the beach and features great facilities including 2 swimming pools, restaurant, supermarket, open air cinema, sports courts, children's playground, gymnasium, and is set in a safe and secure area with security.
La Manga Club
Golf enthusiasts who don't wish to travel far to play a round or two will find the La Manga Club accommodation and facilities superb. Recognised as Europe's leading sports & leisure facility, guests at the club have the choice of five star hotel accommodation or the four star Las Lomas Village Apartments. Both offer outstanding leisure facilities and numerous bars and restaurants catering to all tastes. Within the resort grounds there is no less than three 18 hole golf courses, a huge tennis centre, FIFA class football pitches and various sports academies.
La Manga Strip
Heading out along the La Manga Strip there is a fantastic choice of hotel accommodation throughout the central area and along the shores of both the Mediterranean and Mar Menor seas. The beauty of choosing to stay along the ‘Strip' is the fact that even if you are centrally located you are never more than 50 metres from the sea and just a hop, skip and jump from a great variety of shops, bars and restaurants. Hotels here tend to be in the 3 – 4 star range with facilities such as swimming pools and restaurants, although there is a small choice of better value 2 star hotels, aparthotels and holiday apartments.
Accommodation In Mar Menor
Visitors choosing to stay along the shores of the Mar Menor are equally as spoilt for choice and also never far from the sea, as most of the accommodation in the various towns and residential areas is on or near the beaches. Situated near the airport, the coastal town of Los Alcázares is a popular holiday destination with British and Irish visitors, evident in the bars along the ‘Strip' called Av. Río Nalón where you will always find a pint of ale, Guinness or cider. Handily located at the end of the ‘Strip' is the popular Hotel 525 that features a lovely rooftop swimming pool.
Mar Menor Camping
There are two popular camping sites on the Mar Menor with equally as impressive camping and leisure facilities. Camping Mar Menor is located on the beach close to the airport and offers pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes as well as fully equipped static mobile homes. A great feature of their facilities is the Thai Beach Club that boasts a chill out beach zone and bar and restaurant where visitors can enjoy live entertainment. Camping San Javier is not far from the town centre and offers camping pitches, static mobile homes and bungalows as well as a swimming pool, poolside bar, sporting facilities and an indoor bar and restaurant.
