Touring Spain? Don't Miss Mar Menor

Feb 23, 2008
Are you planning a trip to Spain? A trip to this beautiful country wouldn't be complete without a visit to the gorgeous resort city Mar Menor, located on the east coast (Costa Blanca) of Spain in the Murcia region. Mar Menor is a salt water lake area that is exciting to explore and relaxing so there is really something for everyone.

The landscape of the Mar Menor area is truly breathtaking. There is the amazing salt water lake that this area is known for as well as the Mediterranean coast with cliffs and small beaches to enjoy sun filled days or a quiet sunset. If you enjoy outdoor activities then this destination has plenty to offer. You can enjoy a round of golf at a challenging golf course amidst beautiful surroundings. Summer is the time to visit this area to enjoy water sports on the open sea or there are many recreational activities at the lake.

Mar Menor does not only have much to offer in natural beauty but this area is brimming with culture and history. There are remains from Roman and Arabic periods for the history buff as well as a great amount of other incredible sights and attractions.

The Mar Menor area is home to some charming towns that are perfect for day trips and exploring. Each town has something a little different to offer visitors so you'll have plenty of variety. You can spend your time shopping, walking around, or just sipping a coffee at a caf and people watching.

For a day trip outside of Mar Menor, venture off to nearby Cartagena. There are forts and castles to enjoy here so there are many exploration opportunities. There are also many festivals during the year; if you're lucky enough to be in this region during a festival, it will make your holiday experience even more unique.

Mar Menor is an ideal place to relax but if you want some entertainment and let your hair down after a day in the sun then head to Gran Via. This street not only is home to many serviced apartments and hotels but it comes alive at night with a variety of bars and restaurants. For dining options there is a wide range on offer to fit any appetite on any budget. You can grab a snack at a caf or have a leisurely dinner at a posh, five star restaurant.

So whether you're looking for a place full of sights and activities or a destination to sunbath and relax, Mar Menor is the holiday spot that really has something for everyone. Make sure and add it to your Spain vacation itinerary.
