Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Mar de Cristal, Spain your home away from home

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.

very relaxing holiday

4 of 5
12/01/2018 Me, my daughter-in-law with 8 months old grand-son and neice have just returned from a week's holiday in Murcia staying in Mar de Cristal at this property. The property was clean, and very well presented, the general feel was homely and not that of a holiday let. We arrived on the 3 Kings holiday week-end so all the shops in the Los Belones the closest town as well as the local supermarket were closed. This did not affect us since Peter and Ann (the lovely couple who take care of the property) provided basic provision to last us the week-end. The cafe Arena was opened and we spent several evenings down there enjoying tapas ans sangeria. Peter and Ann really helped to make our stay pleasurable by providing us with transportation and being our tour guide which we greatly appreciated and, dare I say at a fraction of the cost the local taxis would have charged. None of us are drivers, and without a car getting around will be very restricted. The walk out to Los Belones took us 30 minutes pushing a buggy, the fact that there are no pedestrianised foot paths and its along a busy dual carriage way does not make for an enjoyable relaxing walk. However once we got there, we were rewarded with a good selection of cafes, restaurants, bars and stores to have a browse. I would strongly recommend a day visit to Cabo de Palos and Cartengena, since we visited out off season there was nothing to happening in Mar de Cristal since the area was virtually uninhabited, so ability to travel out was essential. My niece was able to buy a day pass to use the swim pool and spa at the La Manga golf club and had a most pleasing day experience. In terms of value for money and restful place to be this property tick all the boxes, however having transportation is essential. Dawn and family
