Make a holiday rental house or villa on the La Manga Strip, Spain your home away from home

The La Manga Strip is just 22km long, separating the Mediterranean from the Mar Menor on Spain’s Costa Calida. The beautiful sandy beaches and unprecedented range of conditions for water sports have made villas on the La Manga Strip some of the most highly regarded on the whole Mediterranean Coast. Ideal for family holidays with safe, sheltered blue flag beaches and more activities you could imagine, holiday rentals on the La Manga Strip are a fantastically well kept secret.

Places to holiday on the La Manga Strip, Spain

Cartagena is the oldest settlement in the region, and the past can still be seen interacting seamlessly with modern influences. A day here provides great place to relax, eat and explore whilst staying in La Manga Strip accommodation.

Mar Menor is the lagoon or ‘little sea’ protected by the La Manga Strip. Water temperatures are on average 5˚C warmer than the Mediterranean, and average temperatures for the year are over 18˚C! Golf is an important game at the Mar Menor resort, and there are three championship standard golf courses available. The warm, sheltered and safe waters, un-crowded beaches and array of activities make Mar Menor a favourite with families.

Things to do on the La Manga Strip, Spain

La Manga villas originally came to the forefront of European holiday accommodation due their proximity to three championship golf courses. The vast array of both Mediterranean and Mar Menor beaches on either side of the strip soon meant that golfing holidays were combined with family holidays, and the La Manga Strip has never looked back! The beaches of La Manga Strip consist of glorious white sand and never get crowded even during the peak tourist season. Young children can bathe safely in the warm, crystal clear lagoon waters of Mar Menor, and the clay found in some areas of the lagoon are meant to be excellent for skin complaints!

Restaurants of all different varieties are on offer along the La Manga Strip, especially along the Thomas Maestre Marina, and the produce from the weekly market every Sunday at Cabo de Palos will keep the fridge in your self catering villa on the La Manga Strip stocked with local treats.

With access to both the Mediterranean and the calm waters of Mar Menor, water sports are exceptional here. Sailing, jet-skiing, scuba diving, kite surfing, windsurfing and fishing are all readily available for all standards and ages, and on land, there are superb facilities for go karting, driving quads, golf, walking and relaxing in a health spa, not to mention shopping, beach bars and the casino available from a La Manga Strip apartment.

Weather on the La Manga Strip, Spain

Summers on the La Manga Strip are hot, making the beaches a marvellous extension to your La Manga villa rental. August temperatures can soar above 30˚C on a regular basis, and the winter rarely sees temperatures dip below 10˚C, meaning the golf courses remain open all year round.

                                      Best holiday ever. Amazing

                                      5 of 5
                                      Just spent a fantastic week here. Party included 5 month old baby. 4 year old. Couple of young parents and then the grandparents. Everything you could ever imagine you would need is provided in the villa. And then some. We have never stayed in and chilled on a holiday before. We have done villas. But none have Resulted in feeling relaxed and chilled as much as this. It is fairly isolated. The beach bar 100yds along the beach was welcoming. They even brought in a Tv for the England match. Food here is ok. Staff were brilliant. The much reviewed el parador is a short stroll away which has a lovely view and I'll leave it at that. Magdalena was brilliant. She is so friendly. She even made us some home made chocolate donuts mid week. She can't speak English and we can't speak Spanish but with some assistance from her friend and translator they even ordered us a take away on the night of our arrival as we had all been up since 2am and had no energy left to contemplate cooking or going out. Children loved it too. Steady flow of people passing by that Appeared naked and covered in mud to our amusement. We struggled getting cable on the tv but a phone call to Magdalena resulted in the cable guy turning up before the next match. There is nothing I can say that is negative. This is by far one of the best holidays I have had and is definitely the only holiday that I have had that I have returned home rested and ready to return to work. I will definitely come back. Weather was hot hot hot so the baby struggled with the heat but the air conditioning cooled him down.

                                      lovely apartment in good location, very well fitted out with everything you could want for an enjoyable stay. Comfortable beds and plenty of space outside. Location was perfect opposite the marina with views of the lagoon. Supermarket at the end of the road and a fabulous restaurant, Casa Paco also at the end of the road, with fabulous food and excellent value.

                                      We stayed at Villa Fortuna late 2014 into early 2015....we are a family of 4 plus a pet dog. The villa was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean....everything you could need was there. The owners Karin and Chano were very keen to ensure that our stay was comfortable and that we had everything necessary. The villa itself is very close to the water and the area is perfect for water sports. We found the owners local knowledge invaluable and again their generosity with advise and help was just fantastic. Our teenage sons loved the beaches which were extremely well kept and took advantage of the surf which was excellent....our timing for our visit later in the year also meant that access to the beaches was easy, we believe it can be busy in summer though. From our experience, we can only say a huge thank you to Karin and Chano for our stay at Villa Fortuna. We had a wonderful stay and will be returning in the future.
