The name of La Manga belongs to an interesting geographic region that has become the symbol of the Murcia coast as a tourist destination. This area, that was unspoilt until the 60's, became a popular tourist destination from then onwards. La Manga occupies approximately 24 kms of the Murcia coast and is the natural limit of the salty water lake called "Mar Menor".
What is originally known as La Manga of the Mar Menor, was an open bay to the Mediterranean sea, although around 2000 years ago it closed almost completely forming this way the Mar Menor lagoon. La Manga is a narrow strip of land with a width from around 200 metres to 1.5 kilometres, there are small canals that communicate the two areas, allowing the entrance of water from the Mediterranean into the lake.
There's only one road known as Gran Via that runs right through it from Cabo de Palos and connects all the urbanisations in the area.
