For us, this was perfect: a lot of space, not too many people (even in August) - mostly just spaniards, shallow water (perfect for toddlers)... And the village it self is eye candy with old, small and charming houses. Very easy to get to from...More

Lovely sandy beach on the lagoon side of Mar Menor , really warm water. This is an old Spanish resort and is only busy at Easter and August. In September it was an absolute ghost town . Easily accessible by train from Cartagena

Lovely shallow beach, ideal for families..clean enough and never busy, lovely promenade. Absolutely NOTHING around it except 1 restaurant. No shops, bars etc so come to enjoy tranquillity and go elsewhere for anything else!
