Property in Mar Menor

When you are searching for your dream property in Spain it can be hard to know where to begin. This month, at HomeEspana, we are focusing on the very special area of Mar Menor and all it has to offer. Part of the Autonomous Community of Murcia, on the Costa Calida, Mar Menor means small, or lesser, sea and that is exactly what it is – a large, salt water lagoon, separated from the Mediterranean ocean by La Manga – a 22 kilometre long sandbank. This unique geography creates what Esther Williams, Olympic swimmer and Hollywood film star, called “the largest swimming pool in the world” – never more than 7 metres deep, with water that is on average 5 degrees warmer than the Med, it’ one of the most popular locations in Europe for water sports of all kinds.

La Manga del Mar Menor is one of the most highly regarded resorts in the whole of Spain – and if you fancy a taste of a more jet set lifestyle, then the prestigious La Manga club is the place to be. With three championship golf courses, restaurants, beauty salons, gyms, shops and every water sport imaginable, from scuba diving to water skiing to catamaran sailing, this is where many international football teams do their winter training. Unsurprisingly the glitz and glamour of the resort can be reflected in property prices but, as a rule, Costa Calida and Murcia property prices tend to be cheaper than other popular areas of Spain like the Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol.

When you are bored with celebrity spotting, you will find that the area around the Mar Menor has plenty more to keep you busy. The Costa Calida starts at El Mojon, a purpose built urbanisation set on one of the most stunning Blue Flag beaches on this coastline – with safe bathing, wooden walkways on the beach, a children’ play area, and many excellent places to eat and drink. Close to El Mojon are some of the most ecologically important wetlands in the world, the Regional Park of Las Salinas y Arenales de San Pedro del Pinatar, home to pink flamingos and a host of other wildlife. Another area of outstanding natural interest is the Calblanque Nature Reserve. Exploring the countryside around the Mar Menor will show you a region of contrasts – salt flats, hills, cliffs, stunning mountains – it’ the perfect location for keen walkers and hikers as well as beach lovers.

Los Alcazares is on the western shore of the Mar Menor and is one of the most important towns of this area. With coastal and mountain views, it’ an idyllic location. Once a small fishing village, it is now an extremely popular coastal resort, particularly in the summer months. Long known for its ancient spas, you can walk along the promenade and enjoy the recently restored marina. The immediate countryside is mostly flat, so cycling and horse-riding are popular. You can also take a boat trip from Los Alcazares to the island of Perdiguera – and enjoy an unforgettable swim in the sparkling, crystal clear water around this tiny island. With shops, restaurants and bars, Los Alcazares is a lively place – and we have a wide range of Los Alcazares property, from seafront apartments, to gorgeous detached villas and townhouses.

Within thirty minutes’ drive of Los Alcazares are the two most major cities of Murcia – Cartagena and, of course, Murcia itself. So if windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving, star-spotting, hiking, retail therapy, horse-riding, glorious countryside, beaches and nature watching aren’t enough you can choose between two of Spain’ most culturally significant, historical and cosmopolitan cities and get a culture fix!

The area around the Mar Menor has something for everyone. Sleepy fishing villages, gorgeous coastal resorts, major cities – and HomeEspana has a range of properties here to match all requirements and budgets. Until recently, Murcia was still relatively undiscovered and even though it has become more popular as a tourist destination in the last few years, particularly as air, road and rail links have improved, it still has plenty of quiet and peaceful retreats, and there is a clear determination on the part of the authorities to resist the sort of high density building that has been a blight in other areas of Spain.

Take a look at our Mar Menor properties – in towns like Pilar de la Horadada in Alicante province, Torre Pacheco, El Mojon, Los Alcazares. We have plots of land for development, apartments, townhouses, duplexes, renovation projects and luxury Spanish villas. Those looking for Spanish golf property will also be spoiled for choice here – with numerous championship courses including Roda Golf Resort and the golf courses at La Manga, and many more in development. With Murcia’ San Javier airport on the doorstep, and Alicante’ El Altet less than an hour away, the region around the Mar Menor couldn’t be easier to get to, and improved motorway links mean getting around is easy.
