Local Beaches

The Mar Menor is a unique place with warm, shallow waters and clean, sandy, blue flag beaches


The promenade and beach stretches for 8km and the local blue-flag beaches are fantastic having won the Q awards for excellence & safety.
Dotted with "chiringuitos" where you can have tapas to keep you going throughout the day.
The water temperature is much higher than the surrounding Mediterranean and is warm enough to swim even in Spring!

Los Narejos and Patrulla Aguila (Spanish Aerobatics Team) The nearest beach is at Los Narejos and is just 2 km from the resort.
Gently shelving and really safe for kids. Apart from the height of Summer, the beach is usually quiet and is my personal favourite.

Although there are limited facilities here, there are a few beach bars that serve reasonably priced tapas, snacks and burgers.

As this is a Spanish holiday town, in the Spring and Autumn it can be virtually deserted. So watch out - it can also mean the bars are closed!


Head for Lo Pagan to take in the famous mud baths. The mud is applied over the body and allowed to dry in the sun before being washed off in the salt waters.

The kids will love it! Getting dirty without being told off! But take care - the mud stains so use an old swimsuit.

Santiago de la Ribera Lovely promenade and beach that is popular with Spanish Holiday makers - but don't worry though as English is spoken here. Some nice bars and restaurants on the promenade where you can sit and watch the world go by.

Santiago de la Ribera boasts a popular water-sports centre and sailing club with sailing, water skiing, boat hire, wind surfing, scuba diving, fishing, cycling and a sports center . . .

It's a great place to visit .....


The Southern end of the Mar Menor is less touristy than Los Alcázares and has some fantastic, quiet beaches. One of our friends always checks out the beaches wherever he goes - looking for the white sand to compare to his native Jamaica. He was impressed by Mar de Cristal and Los Nietos and said "almost as good as home!" Los Nietos Mar De` Cristal
