La Manga del Mar Menor The Little Sea of Dreams

It's a tiny strip of land on the Costa Calida, barely noticeable on satellite images of Southern Spain. Its name means "sleeve," and the narrow land that comprises La Manga certainly looks like one. Resembling an oversized sandbar, it is 21 km long and only 300 meters wide on average. The "sleeve" forms a small bay that distinguishes Mar Menor from the rest of the Mediterranean Sea. This makes it an unusual attraction, perfect for a unique Spanish holiday. Though it's technically part of the Mediterranean, Mar Menor has character all its own. It is often referred to as a lake. One taste of the water though, and its true nature is revealed. Its high salinity makes floating a breeze. Combined with Mar Menor's famous "Black Mud," it is believed to possess therapeutic qualities. The enclosed shape and 70 km coastline also make it a natural water sports area. It's year-round warmth and 315 days of sunshine make it an ideal place for professional athletes to practice.

La Manga is primarily a resort area, though it is inhabited by locals year-round too. It has been favored as a home-away-from-home since ancient Phoenicians began establishing summer residences there. Today it is a getaway for both Spaniards and foreigners alike.

La Manga for Wine Lovers

The region of Murcia in Spain is famous for its old world character, rich history and gorgeous weather. Connoisseurs know that Murcia is also synonymous with wine. Wine lovers who want a Spanish holiday with class and good taste, consider Murcia's history.

Murcia's wine is produced in the region of Jumilla. It covers the northern part of Murcia and the south-east portion of Albacete. It boasts 33,000 hectares of wine-producing grapes. Its vineyards turn out 220,000 hl of wine every year. In fact, the region actually comprises five separate denominations of origin. Each DO is closely regulated by the local government. It helps to ensure that only the best grapes are grown. In the case of organic wines (which are increasingly in demand), it ensures that growing regulations are followed. This provides quality assurance to consumers around the world. It is undoubtedly one of the reasons that Jumilla wines have been critically acclaimed in the last decade.
