The apartment is located at the end of the La Manga Strip, approximately 17 kms from the start of the Strip.
The nearest town is Cabo de Palos and the most convenient way to reach the apartment is by car, but there are buses that run the entire length of the Strip regularly. Taxis are available to collect you from both Murcia airport (55 km) and Alicante airport (120 km).
Please contact me if you want competitive rates. There is a ferry service available from Santiago de la Riberia, which is close to Murcia airport. You will need to get a taxi to Santiago and then the ferry. This is the web page for the schedule http://www.marmenorferry.com/horarios.html. The ferry will bring you into Thomas Maestro marina which is 4 km from the apartment. You can catch a bus or taxi from there.
I do recommend you hire a car.
Activities and attractions
The choice of beaches is almost endless, from the wild dunes to the south, to the gently sloping safe beaches of the Mar Menor. Being shallow, the Mar Menor is often a little warmer than the Mediterranean.
* Leisure & Recreation
La Manga has a fine sports harbour where you can hire all manner of water-sports equipment, including sailing dinghies. Lessons are available too.
Being completely flat, La Manga is very easy to get about for walkers and cyclists alike. Long distance runners will enjoy heading off along the paths at the southern end of the strip.
Peke Park is an adventure park for all ages, this is located next to Bohemia Plaza about 10km from the apartment heading towards Cabo de Palos.
Day trips to Cartagena for its historical sites and to Murcia for cultural attractions and shopping.
