The Spanish resort of Mar de Cristal lies on the southern shore of the Mar Menor in Cartagena.

Things to do in Mar de Cristal, Spain

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.

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.

An ideal base on the quieter shore of the lagoon opposite the La Manga strip. The beach of the lagoon is quite 'rocky' but within 15 mins drive we found some fabulous beachs, perfect for young kids and adults alike. Highly recommended.
