Los Miradores del Puerto, La Manga del Mar Menor, Costa Calida. First floor 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment, sleeping up 6. Air conditioning & under floor heating. Facing south-west, the balcony has amazing views over the Tomas Maestre Marina and El Estacio, with spectacular sunsets. Small local fishing boats, as well as yachts, sailing boats and cruisers, use the canal and the new bridge opens every 2 hours, depending on the time of year, to let tall sailboats and large vessels through. The balcony is equipped with a patio table and 6 chairs for al-fresco dining.
The sun hits the apartment at lunchtime, and you can enjoy it until you watch it set over the Mar Menor! There is a supermarket and several cafe/restaurants within a short walk and, although the apartment is not designated for the disabled, there is ramped access to nearby beaches (Mar Menor 500m, and the Mediterranean 350m), and from the car parking area to the apartment building and swimming pools, with a large lift to our apartment on the first floor.
Located in the north of La Manga del Mar Menor, this is a quiet area just across the new El Estacio bridge. The complex of six widely-spaced apartment blocks has a swimming pool, toddlers’ pool and paddle-tennis court. It’s just a short walk to the beaches, and a few minutes in the car, or by local bus (3Km), to further beaches with a superb choice of water activities.
The Marina, a 25-minute walk (or 3 minute drive) away, has a ‘café lifestyle’ with a multitude of bars and restaurants with international and Spanish menus. Many have children’s dishes available. Days out on the Mar Menor and Mediterranean can be organised from here, depending on the time of year, also scuba-diving. A ferry runs from the Marina to Santiago de la Ribera (San Javier), docking right on the beach!
There are numerous safe beaches some with lifeguards on the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean. For tourist and beach information take a look at https://sanjaviertoday.com/town-page/san-javier/index.php/
