It has an average depth of 1.7m, which makes it ideal for various water sports. The depth around the shore is only 0.5m and this along with the warm water temperatures makes La Manga the perfect place for children to safely enjoy the beach. The apartment is close to shops, a new supermarket(200m approx) and restaurants and there is a regular bus service, up and down the strip at low fares, if you prefer a wider selection to choose from.
There is a sailing school just 15mins walking distance from the apartment offering a good variety of water sports. From novice to to the experienced, they cater for all.
