About Mar Menor
The Mar Menor has always been one of Spain's best kept secrets and nestled here is the small town of Los Alcázares. Situated along the mainland coast of Mar Menor and facing La Manga, Los Alcázares offers the beautiful, calm and warm waters of a large lagoon. This modern and dynamic town offers you an abundance of water sports facilities all year round as well as a multitude of existing and planned golf courses.
Only a short distance away - less than one hour of travelling by car - are the historic cities of Murcia and Cartagena, as well as the larger shopping and tourist destinations Torrevieja, Alicante, Elche and Benidorm. Los Alcázares is also within an hour's drive from Alicante Airport and only a few minutes from the quaint San Javier Airport.
Weekly markets are an old tradition in Spain and in Los Alcázares you can buy fresh local fruits, vegetables and fish and start living the famous healthy Mediterranean life. Enjoy all year round - and not just for 2 weeks of the year - the renowned fresh fish and shellfish dishes and tapas in the local restaurants.
