Great location just a couple of minutes walk from the beach. The house is lovely and well kept. An ideal property for a couple but spacious enough for a small family. Close to local amenities and lots to do in the surrounding area.

About the neighbourhood
The Mar Menor is a few minutes walk from the front of the house - a salt water lagoon beside the Mediterranean sea. There are numerous beaches with crystal clear still, shallow waters. The biggest salt lake in Europe!

Playa Paraiso is a safe sandy beach with 3 beach bars open in the Summer. A new sports centre has opened just opposite Zafiro with tennis courts, padel tennis and football. There is a cafe bar selling coffee and cakes, fresh bread, ice creams and cheap beer. There are quite a few local bars/ restaurants within walking distance of the house and many more to visit in the local harbour at Cabo de Palos and the La Manga Strip.
Getting around
There is a bus to Cartagena or Murcia city from La Manga Caravanning and a bus to Cartagena from Playa Honda. There is also a lovely little train from Los Nietos, just a short taxi ride away, which goes up through the mountains and mining villages into Cartagena - a lovely Roman city. Murcia city is also very pretty.

It is a good idea to hire a car as there are lots of beautiful beaches and places to go.

The area is very flat to walk or cycle. Bikes can be hired at La Manga Caravanning.
