Make a holiday rental home or villa in Playa Honda, Spain your home away from home

Not to be confused with its namesake, Playa Honda in Lanzarote, Playa Honda in mainland Spain lies at the bottom point of the Mar Menor – once described as the “largest swimming pool in the world”. With the benefits of the great year-round weather which the Costa Calida is famous for, this small town offers a great beach destination, offering excellent tourist facilities and day trip opportunities, whilst at the same time keeping its traditional Spanish village feel.

Things to do in Playa Honda, Spain

Playa Honda is just a short walk from the sandy beach of Playa Paraiso and the warm, shallow waters of the Mar Menor, which can reach up to 30C in temperature during summer months. The high salinity of this lagoon makes it an excellent area for all manner of water sports. It is also famous for its black mud, which is said to have healing properties for ailments such as arthritis and rheumatism.

From the beach it is also possible to take in the fantastic sea views over the La Manga Strip, a 24km long stretch that is just 300 metres wide and separates the Man Menor from the Mediterranean Sea, and is home to a number of bars, nightclubs, shops, cafes and restaurants. The strip makes for a great option for a night out, and there is no need to take the car, as it is just a short taxi ride away.

Despite its popularity Playa Honda retains an authentic Spanish village feel, and has a small selection of tapas bars, cafeterias, family businesses and small food shops in its centre. Hiring a bicycle is a great way to explore the area, and a newly-built cycle lane runs all the way to (and through) La Manga.

Apt. on 9th floor and view and sunsets over the Mar Menor were fantastic. The balcony is securely netted so very safe for small children We had a 2 year old climber and a 6 year old with us, but we had no worry about an accident. Any questions we had were answered promptly by Leon and Esther. Very nice people to deal with. Also, Antonio who did Airport transfers was very helpful and polite. The beach on the Med, which is about 6 minutes walk from the apartment is a fabulous beach and lots of restaurants to choose from.They are reasonably priced and good. The only negative dining experience was Casa Tio Andres (on the main street). Did not get meal ordered and was told by waiter got what I pointed at! AS I read and speak spanish well enough to get around this was definitely not the case. Service and attitude left a lot to be desired .However, we had a lovely holiday and I am very happy to recommend this apartment and we hope to return in the future.

We stayed for two weeks and we could of stayed for two more. The property is clean and very well maintained to a high standard the location is perfect, very quiet and chilled but also near to shops and restaurants for when we fancied eating out, great restaurant 1 min walk from the villa along the beach, aslo near the villa is a small fishing town of Cabo de Palos there we found great restaurants, and a great local market on sunday mornings full of gems at great prices! Magdalena was then when we arrived and provided excellent service the whole stay, we also brought fresh fish (sea bass) great treat to grill, from the local fisherman who's boat is kept just outside the garden gate. As well as spending many days just relaxing at the villa we also visited many beaches in the Playa de Calblanque area (great waves) a short drive away! We will be coming back for sure.
