La Manga Strip
La Manga Strip … “the sleeve” of land that runs from Cabo de Palos in the south up to San Pedro in the north is 18km long and encloses the warm tranquil waters of the Mar Menor to the west and has the livelier colder Mediterranean to the east. The Strip is up to 1km wide in parts and yet in others it is merely 100m, allowing for the road to run through with a beach on either side.
La Manga Strip is a town in its own right, albeit a long and thin one! There are shopping centres, restaurants and bars set in plazas or squares. The marina at the Puerto Tomas Maestre is beautiful and houses some stunning boats and yachts that most of us can only dream of, but the restaurants are great and the atmosphere is wonderful. Experience the full beauty of La Manga yourself through holiday villa and apartment rentals in La Manga and the Costa Calida.
Water sports … well there could not be a better or safer place to learn to sail, jet ski or kite board. The La Manga and Costa Calida area has a number of sailing schools with a wide range of boats and dinghy on which to learn to sail or brush up on your skills. Diving is a popular sport and there are a number of diving schools offering beginners courses to night dives for the more experience diver. The dive around Isla Grosa takes about an hour to swim through the quartz caves.
Playa Paraiso is situated on the beach of the Mar Menor, a lagoon connected to the Mediterranean via the La Manga strip(see map of area). There are lovely beaches , ideal for family holidays by the sea , and there is access to watersports and golf nearby.
This area has long been a favourite of the Spanish who come for a relaxing holiday , away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life ; do not expect to find the 24 hour life associated with some of the other Costas
The Costa Calida is in the region of Murcia and enjoys an excellent climate , which gives up to 320 days of sunshine a year on average (that is why we bought the house). There are plenty of unspoilt beaches , small villages , and breathtaking countryside to explore , so a hire car would be useful and gives you the freedom to travel , shop , sightsee , and dine at times of your choice. Murcia airport is about 25 minutes drive away and Alicante airport is about 90 minutes away by good motorway/dual carriageway links. Both airports have car hire offices available.( There are plenty of car hire options on the internet ; up till now I have used Holiday Autos as they have been the cheapest at Murcia).
The historic towns of Murcia and Cartagena are only a short drive away and well worth a visit. Then there is Cabo de Palos , a beautiful fishing village , at the start of La Manga strip. It is 5 minutes drive away , has several good seafood restaurants , and is also ideal for that lazy , casual drink/coffee by the sea while watching the world go by.
Next to Playa Paraiso is Playa Honda where you will find a small supermarket , a chemist shop , and a few restaurants/bars which are all within walking distance.
A little further afield is the La Manga strip where you will find supermarkets , banks , etc. to meet most of your shopping needs. In the opposite direction is Los Belones which is also worth a visit for shopping , dining , or to chillout in the village square with a drink ; so there are plenty of good restaurants available in La Manga , Cabo de Palos , and Los Belones.
