Mar Menor guide Mar Menor hotels near Mar Menor and map showing the location of the Mar Menor

The Mar Menor (small sea) is the name given to the salt-water lagoon that is the largest salt lake in Europe. The sand formation that borders its eastern shore and separates it from the Mediterranean Sea is better known as La Manga.

Mar Menor

The water’s healing powers are well recorded, as are the therapeutic properties of the mud and clay. Many of today’s holiday resorts were once fishing villages and this is reflected in the area’s heritage.

La Manga is a strip of sand, approx. 22kms. long, which forms a "barrier" and encloses the "Mar Menor" (Minor Sea) and separates it from the "Mar Mayor" (the Mediterranean). At it's narrowest parts it is only 100 metres wide and the maximum width is 1.5km.

There are four canals along the length of La Manga which allow the water to flow from one sea to the other and at the two extremes of the strip there are two protected natural spaces. The town of San Pedro del Pinatar is in a unique spot just a stones throw from the Mar Menor.
