The ‘little sea’ of Mar Menor is perfect for all types of water sports, with its calm, clear waters averaging 5˚C warmer than the waters of the Mediterranean at all times throughout the year. Facilities for sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving and kite-surfing can be found along the large, tilled promenade which backs the main beach in Mar de Cristal, Spain, and for those who just wish to spend a lazy day on the beach, soaking in the sun, there are ample opportunities! The beaches are gently sloping and safe, meaning that many people take Mar de Cristal accommodation for their young family.

Living in a Mar de Cristal villa means that there is an ever constant threat of golf! Located just 5 minutes away, the golf courses of La Manga Club are easily within range, and if you travel a little further (under 30 minutes), you can find the three famous Spanish courses of Campoamor, Las Ramblas and Villamartin, with a further 10 golf courses being built in the area in the next few years.

If you are looking for a few days in the peace of the Spanish countryside, there are a great range of national parks and sanctuaries in close proximity to a Mar de Cristal villa in which you can relax and stroll through unspoilt habitats, warmed by the sun. The Calblanque and Salinas Bird Sanctuary and the Sierra de Carrascoy Regional Park are among the best on offer, and are certainly worth investigating.

The apartment catered for your every need, it was like been home from home! The views from the sun terrace were stunning and the best feature of the terrace was total privacy, no-one overlooking you. The Mar de Cristal is a lovely little village and an ideal central place to travel around the Mar Menor in a car. Hope we'll soon be back!

Apartment has everything you need for a relaxing break. Centrally situated with historic sites, markets, beautiful ports and beaches nearby. Plenty of things to do and lovely places to eat nearby.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

Apartment was comfortable, all facilities working. Very Very quiet at this time of year, (pre Christmas) But warm enough to sit outside on the balcony with a newspaper and a beer. The only reason it doesn't get a 5th star is the confusion over the cleaning charge before I came out. Be sure to clear this up with Nimmi before you go. Good location to explore Murcia.
