We were recommended to drive over this extraordinary bridge at some time during our stay and it was really an unusual driving experience you really do think that there is no road on the other side when reaching it peak. Recommended tying this.

Beautiful bridge which is not too busy at the end of the strip. Only let down is the smell from I assume the stagnant water.

Drove over this bridge to check out the vicinity of where we are staying at La Manga. Its basically a steep bridge. Used 1 min. in total crossing it, that was plenty of time spent on this bridge :D

Went for a drive around the far end of the strip and tour surprise came across what would in my neck of the woods be called a humpbacked bridge. Quite steep so take care when crossing in a vehicle.

It is a very steep bridge. Good fun to drive over, however I would not go to fast! There are no tolls, so if your in the area it is worth a visit. You can get some cool photos here.
