I was surprised for not finding La Manga del Mar Menor in Virtual Tourist.
Upon my arrival, I discovered why - it is mainly a vacation place for locals and... Portuguese.
However, many thousand people fill the immense stripe of apartment buildings and hotels, lining a very good beach.
Why not to mention it?
We spent a very good week there, swimming in a tepid sea, with crystalline waters. So pure that... it was a surprise. It's common to see that purity in rocky coast, but not so common in a soft sandy beach.That was, for a week, Fernanda's Paradise...
We spent a very good week there, swimming in a tepid open sea, with a few visits to the interior sea (almost a lake)
It is so shallow that it is absolutely safe for children, but almost useless for adults, since, even walking several hundred meters into the sea, I couldn't find dept enough to wet my pants.
Of course, those who enjoy "boiling" in the water were in Paradise...
Cabo de Palos
The entrance to La Manga
I've been there, "pushed" by Virtual Tourist that didn't know La Manga, but I must confess that great part of what I'm going to write respects to La Manga de Mar Menor, a long strip of sand that, starting here, in Cabo de Palos goes northeastward lined by two seas.
To oppose the shallow and wide sandy coast of La Manga, here we get a rocky coast with a few small coves.
