Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Cartagena & Mar Menor

6th floor self-catering apartment directly on a beautiful Mediterranean beach

Exquisite apartment in a small development situated at one of the narrowest parts of the La Manga strip, directly on a long, wide, sandy Mediterranean beach, with none of the dense crowds you will find further down the peninsula.

The apartment is on the 6th floor with breathtaking views over the Mar Menor, Europe’s largest lagoon and a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. Furnished and decorated to a very high standard inside, including a 32” flat-screen LCD TV with UK 'Freesat' TV and Spanish free-to-air digital TV channels, iPhone/iPod dock and DVD player. The complex includes a well-equipped gym with a sauna, table tennis table, padel tennis court and swimming pool (May to October only).

The apartment has broadband internet access with WiFi.

Perfect for a romantic getaway, watersports activity holiday, or just relaxing on a sandy beach.

Places of interests nearby: The Nature Reserve San Pedro del Pinatar Salt works and Sand Spots Regional Park is about 2000 acres of wild land, situated North of urbanized La Manga. The other Nature Reserve is unspoiled Calblanque (volcanic cliffs over isolated sand beaches) which is situated south of La Manga between La Manga Club and Cabo de Palos. Cabo de Palos, which is at the neck of La Manga strip, has many seafood restaurants and dive centres. The Sunday flea market, “Mercadillo de Cabo de Palos” takes place every Sunday morning along the year next to the old road Cabo de Palos-La Manga-Cartagena. In the Mercadillo you have fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers from the famous Murcia and Cartagena plantations and also clothing, shoes, gifts, etc. Prices are much better than the ones you find in the regular shops or supermarkets.

The ancient port town of Cartagena is the nearest major town, about 40 km away. It dates back to Roman times and boasts the ruins of a Roman theatre, archaeological museums plus a number of interesting examples of military and modernist exhibits and architecture. You can also take a ferry across the Mar Menor to the other side from Tomas Maestre marina and visit Santiago de la Ribera which is situated about 2km north of San Javier Airport. Access: Various budget airlines fly from UK airports to Murcia San Javier (MJV) airport, about 45 minutes by car from the apartment. The much larger airport at Alicante is about 1.5 hours by car.

About David Salgado / Mie Kasai

I'm a computer programmer from the UK, splitting my time between London and La Manga.

David Salgado / Mie Kasai purchased this apartment in 2006

Why David Salgado / Mie Kasai chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

I love being on, in or under the water, and the Mar Menor is a paradise for all kinds of water-based activities. It's the biggest lagoon in Europe, and there really is nothing quite like it. Nearby Cabo de Palos was recently declared to be the best scuba-diving location in Europe.

What makes this apartment unique

The single feature we love the most about this apartment is the view. Every time we step through the door and see the view out over the lagoon it's simply breathtaking. The other amazing benefit of this location is having both the Mediterranean and the Mar Menor beaches just downstairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beach is just meters away perfect for young children with shallow, warm waters. We spent three summers in the area and love the atmosphere which is family friendly and quiet. The apartment is very nice, has everything and more, Internet connection was a great benefit, good size bedrooms, nice bathrooms, kitchen has all you need on holidays. It was very warm but we never used air conditioner because of nice breeze. Great size balcony where you could comfortably dine in the morning and the evening with fantastic views. This apartment is on the 6th floor and it is very quiet which is plus for family with young kids. Good supermarket is three bus stops away, two restaurants are near walking distance, bus stop is just at the building side. The owner is very helpful and prompt with all information and advice. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to my family and friends.

Nice apartment, nice location

  • 4 of 5

We are already back from our vacations at this apartment at La Manga; we really enjoyed it because it´s really nice, with incredible sights over the seas, and it´s very well located. We followed some of David recommendations about local restaurants and entertainments and I can say they are really good.

Wir haben 2 Wochen in diesem schönen Apartment verbracht. Es ist perfekt ausgestattet, es fehlt wirklich an nichts, an alles ist gedacht worden, wir haben nichts vermisst. Die Aussicht von allen Fenstern ist grandios und auch direkt von beiden Betten, da die Fenster bis zum Boden reichen.

Die Klimaanlage hat sehr gut funktioniert. Vom Parkplatz in der Tiefgarage ist nur ein kurzer Weg zum Aufzug.

Der Strand vor dem Gebäude ist auch in der Hochsaison nicht überlaufen, es ist sehr ruhig.

Die Kommunikatin mit David und John war ausgezeichnet. Die Infos die uns David vor der Abreise geschicht hatte, waren sehr hifsreich.

Wir werden sicher wieder kommen.

Really nice!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location, just meters away from the beach. Really cool premises, with the paddle course, swimming pool, sauna and gym. The garage is also a great asset. Not that many people on the beach, which was pretty cool. A really nice place to take a rest and chill for a couple of days. On the downside, I would like to point out that only one of the rooms has AC. Besides that, apartment was pretty cool.

Very nice holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this place, the apartment is very good, everything went vey well, I had just a small issue with the internet connection, that was solve promptly.

Everything was as described and enjoyed very much, it was a amazing week.

Very nice for family and kids. We are a couple with a 20 month old daughter.

The pool is great and the fact that, in few minutes walk, we can go from the apartment to Mediterranean Sea and/or to Mar Menor, is so great and enjoyable.

We also enjoy the gimm and the Zuma class! Nice animation in the common area.

Water temperature during our stay:

Mediterranean Sea: 27° - 28°C

Mar Menor: 30°C

Swimming Pool: 26°C

David was always very nice and made the all process very easy and quick.

Last reference to the documentation sent by David after booking, was very good and helpful, we like it very much, also tried some of the restaurants mentioned and we are not regretted.

Thanks David!

Directly on the Mediterranean beach, the complex is on one of the thinnest points of the strip, with Mar Menor lagoon also within 50 metres. The calm, shallow lagoon is a great environment for children to enjoy the water. For the more adventurous, sailing, wind-surfing, scuba-diving, kite-surfing, water-skiing, wake-boarding, jet-ski and quad-bike rental are all nearby - mostly in the Tomas Maestre marina about 3km away, which also has excellent shops, bars and supermarkets. Some places only open for the summer, so please check availability if coming out of season. There is a very good restaurant - Escuela de Pieter - about 2 minutes walk away, and the Playa Chica beach bar is about 3 minutes walk. At the end of La Manga strip is the fishing village of Cabo de Palos, with great restaurants and dive centres, and a fun flea market on Sundays. Several superb golf courses, including the famous La Manga Club, are also near Cabo de Palos, plus horse-riding and go-kart racing facilities.

Other Activities: Kite-surfing, wake-boarding, quad-bikes, jet skis, go-carting

Golf: The famous La Manga Club golf courses are near the base of the La Manga strip, about 30 minutes drive from the apartment. More information here;
