Mar Menor Lagoon
The Mar Menor is separated from the Mediterranean sea by a strip of sand 22km long, which forms a barrier and has created a shallow warm water lagoon. The water is no more than 7m at its deepest point, and the absence of tides make this location perfect for families and great for many water sports. Mar Menor’s waters warm up in the Spring and stay at a fairly consistent temperature throughout the year, so that on average it is two degrees warmer than the Mediterranean. The Mar Menor offers the visitor the largest open-air mud therapy area in Europe! The ‘black mud’ from the Mar Menor is used to relieve many skin conditions. There are several places along the Mar Menor to enjoy this treatment, and several local hotels also use the mud for specialized treatments.
