La Manga (Spanish pronunciation: [la 'ma?ga]), or La Manga del Mar Menor (meaning 'The Sandbar of the Minor Sea') is a seaside spit in the Region of Murcia, Spain.

The strip is 21 km long and 100 metres wide (average), separating the Mediterranean Sea from the Mar Menor (Minor Sea) lagoon, from Cabo de Palos to the Punta del Mojon.

There are many restaurants and beach bars around the area including the exclusive Escula de Pieter.

The world renowned La Manga Golf and Spa resort is within close driving distance which contains tennis and equestrian facilities also.

Peke Park is a children's playground right in the middle of the La Manga strip which is great for the youngsters, it's good to spend an evening there, the park only opens in the evenings. You can get a drink at the bar and fast food within the park or even just outside.

One of the best diving sites in the world is located at the nearby Cabo De Palos.

The historical city of Cartagena is the closest and now a large cruise terminal popular with tourists due to its historical charm.

There is a ferry from Santiago de la Ribera and Lo Pagan that run regularly throughout the year.

Historically, it was known by the Romans as Palus and later by the Moors as Al Buhayrat Al Qsarand. In the 17th century its name changed to Mar Chico, meaning 'small sea' and later as El Mar Menor. Originally, it was a bay opening into the Mediterranean; at either end, volcanic reefs gradually held back the sand and sediment that was dragged along by the sea currents to form a sandy column of dunes and rock vegetation and long beaches in contact with two seas. La Manga sandbar is cut off by natural channels that keep the two seas in contact with each other; the so-called golas allow water from the Mediterranean into the lake. As such, the space was untouched until the 1960s, when La Manga was discovered as a tourist resort and underwent a transformation which included the urbanisation of the area and the construction of tourist infrastructures.

The nearest airport is San Javier (MJV) which is approximately 40 minutes drive and Alicante airport is around 90 minutes drive.
