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 by 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/ If you fancy a change there are rocky coves in the Calblanque nature reserve to the south of La Manga.
The apartment is spacious and comfortable, with quality fixtures and fittings. It is fully airconditioned, and has under-floor heating throughout.
The lounge/dining room has views over the balcony to the marina in the distance. It is equipped with a 3-seater settee, which opens out into a small double bed, suitable for 2 small adults or children, plus an additional two-seater settee. Fibre Internet connection to the apartment is possible (we previously used an OliveNet 100Mb Fibre connection).
The dining area has an extending table and six dining chairs.
The kitchen contains a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave oven, and a fitted oven and hob. A separate adjoining laundry area contains a drying rack, iron and ironing board, and washing machine with a 1200 spin speed.
The main bedroom has patio doors onto the main balcony and contains a king-size bed, chest of drawers, bedside tables and a built-in wardrobe with additional drawers.
The second bedroom has patio doors to its own south-facing mini-balcony, also with views over the marina. The bedroom contains two 3ft single beds, chest of drawers, bedside table and a built-in wardrobe with additional drawers.
The beds in both the bedrooms have comfy mattresses (replaced in 2016).
There are two bathrooms. The main bathroom has a full bath/shower, washbasin, toilet and bidet. The second bathroom has a washbasin, toilet and a recently added shower cubicle.
