Whether exploring the relatively flat beaches and coves of the La Manga Strip, coastal areas of the Mar Menor or wonderful surrounding countryside and mountains, hiking in La Manga rewards visitors with a vast array of flora & fauna, interesting historical landmarks and spectacular views. Although the most comfortable times for hiking in La Manga are during spring and autumn, if you plan your route and take along sufficient water and sun protection there are many areas, especially in the countryside and mountains where welcoming shade and places to stop for a rest and take in the views can be found along much of the hiking routes.
