Magnificent Murcia, San Javier, The Mar Menor, is a salty lagoon in South Eastern Spain, within the region of Murcia. Its coastal length is a fantastic 70km (43.5 miles) with warm, clear water that does’nt exceed 7 metres in depth. It belongs to four municipalities, Catagena, San Javier, Los Alcazares & San Pedro Del Pinatar.
The lagoon is high in salinity, which aids flotation & has a remarkable sporting infrastructure, making it one of the most popular places in Europe for the practice & training of all kinds of watersports & also has fabulous health benefits to be gained from the salinity in the lagoon.
The Mar Menor is Europe’s longest salt water lake. Its a non-tidal haven for all types of watersport enthusiasts & for those who enjoy the safety of a tranquil ‘little sea’. Activities range from windsurfing, kitesurfing, jet-skiing & many more, or you could just kick back & relax, lapping up the sun & breathing in that fresh healthy air from the salty lagoon.
San Javier itself, is a small town & municipality in the autonomous community & province of Murcia. Situated at the Northern end of Murcia’s mediteranean coastline, the Costa Caliday.
