One of the main reasons that people choose La Manga is the weather. With a phenomenal amount of sunshine each year, there’s no surprise that heading to the beach is at the top of your agenda when you’re in residence at this award winning resort for your tennis holiday. The great news is that no matter how choosy you are when it comes to beaches, La Manga is sure not to disappoint. With the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean Sea on your doorstep, you’ll be packing up your tennis racket and slipping into your swimming cossie in no time.
But the great news is that there’s lots more to La Manga than just beaches. If you’re keen to stay in good shape or indeed get in good shape during your beach holiday, you couldn’t choose better than La Manga. Sport, combined with a healthy amount of relaxation and a whole lot of luxury is the order of the day at La Manga. With plenty to do for tennis lovers, this truly is the place to combine beach and base line.
The Mar Menor, which is only a stone’s throw from La Manga is the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe and flanked on the other side of the peninsula is the Mediterranean Sea, which needs no explanation or introduction. Suffice to say that calm, clear water abounds here, giving you a choice of beaches without ever needing to travel far. What’s more, the variety of options when it comes to the coastline is impressive. With a whole host of pretty little fishing villages and deserted coves, there truly is something for everyone.
Of course the abundance of water around La Manga attracts people for sunbathing and watersports, but it’s worth remembering that if your heart is set on improving your tennis, there are few better places worldwide. With an astounding 28 tennis courts, you’ll be spoilt for choice, irrespective of whether you prefer clay, hard courts or artificial grass. What’s more, no matter what time of year you come, you’ll be able to enjoy long days of tennis thanks to the state of the art floodlighting that means you can play well into the evening, even when the nights start to draw in.
Going back to the beaches, irrespective of whether you choose the resort’s bespoke beach or one of the other local options, you truly will be in seaside heaven. La Cala beach, which is the resort’s private beach boasts shallow water, golden sand and is already set up awaiting your arrival with sun loungers, parasols, lifeguards and showers, so you can leave the beach as fresh as when you arrived. This blue flag status beach, together with its lifeguards and shallow water means that La Cala is the natural first choice for families and sunworshippers alike. The La Cala beach is easy to reach either by car or using the resort’s shuttle bus that runs regularly between the resort and the coast.
If you fancy exploring a bit further afield or adventuring outside of the resort, why not head for the likes of La Manga de Mar Menor? La Manga de Mar Menor is a bustling spot both during the day and at nighttime, which means you won’t be short of something to do, no matter when you go. In fact you could combine a trip to the beach there with a spot of shopping or if you can organise yourself, go straight from the beach to one of the restaurants before heading off to a club. The choices really are huge here.
If it’s quiet class you’re looking for though, you might be better heading to Cabo de Palos, which is a little harbour town that isn’t much of a beach in its own right, but does boast some super fish restaurants and stunning sea views. Add to these options, Los Alcazares, Calblanque and Calnegre and during a week’s holiday, you’ll easily secure yourself a different coastal experience every day of the week.
Once you’ve bronzed yourself on the beach, the sport facilities at La Manga will give you every option you could hope for to stay in shape. In particular, the warm welcome at the tennis club will leave you feeling like you’re a regular, not someone who’s pitched up for the first time.
