Your Home in Southern Spain: 10 Reasons to Choose La Manga Club

Posted by Maria on 20/12/2022

The luxury residential resort, La Manga Club, is situated just off the main road leading to the Mar Menor, in the Murcia region of southeast Spain and just a 30-minute car journey from Murcia Airport.  

This idyllic location unfolds over 1,400 beautifully maintained acres and is bordered by the Mar Menor and Calblanque Regional Park. Enjoying over 300 days of sunshine a year, this sun-drenched region of Spain enjoys a micro-climate where the average daily temperature rarely dips below 18 degrees. 

In addition to being an exclusive holiday resort, La Manga Club is also a sports and leisure paradise. It contains three of the best golf courses in Europe and offers an abundance of first-rate recreational activities and fitness opportunities, including tennis, cricket, football, paddle tennis, cycling, swimming, a gym, a spa and much more. 

If you’re considering buying a home, second home or investment property in Southern Spain, La Manga Club is assuredly the place to be. Here at Micasamo, we offer an extensive range of properties to choose from, and our end-to-end service guarantees to satisfy every desire for those seeking their dream property in Spain.

2. Easy access to airports

La Manga Club is enviably close to two airports, and car hire or taxi transfers can be easily arranged. 

The closest airport is Murcia International Airport (also known as Murcia-Corvera), which is approximately 30 minutes away by car, while Alicante airport is a 75-minute journey. 

There is an excellent selection of airlines operating from both airports, making it relatively simple and easy to travel back and forth from major UK and other European airports, with links for more than 80 direct flights.

3. La Manga Club Communities

When you choose to live your best life in the idyllic surroundings of La Manga Club, you become part of a thriving community which is always on hand to help and support you. 

There are 36 separate communities, each with its own President, ranging from apartments to individual villas. Residents and owners have their own dedicated website providing up-to-date information, community news and events and a great way to stay connected.   

To get a taste of living in the La Manga Club resort, head to the community website and start to ‘breathe in the magic and unwind’ immediately. 

4. Golf

Although there are endless opportunities for sport and leisure, golf at La Manga Club deserves a mention all on its own.

The golf courses are the ‘jewel in the crown’ of golf courses in Spain – indeed, in the whole of Europe – and attract golfers of all levels who can choose from three world-renowned, 18-hole golf courses with outstanding practice facilities. 

Each course is suitable for different playing abilities and if you want to improve your game, there’s even a Golf Academy available to provide expert tuition and supervision.

5. Endless sports and leisure opportunities

When it comes to sports and leisure activities, there is an astonishing amount of year-round choice, including tennis, golf, football, cricket, paddle tennis, rugby, cycling, swimming, hiking, and horseback riding. 

For the more hardcore athletes, La Manga is a unique destination in Spain for those looking to take their training to the next level. The Fitness Centre and High-Performance Sports Centre (CIARD) provide expert guidance and services for those looking to train in endurance sports, for example, road cycling, mountain biking, and triathlon.

6. A luxurious retreat – the iconic Principe Felipe Hotel

At the very heart of the La Manga Club resort is the leading hotel in the region, set to become even more luxurious following a multi-million euro refurbishment. (Re-opening May 2023.) 

Aside from the sumptuous accommodation, this opulent hotel will house two new adult-only swimming pools, a Fitness and Wellness Centre, new dining options (including a sushi bar), and much more. It’s the perfect place to kick back and relax. 

Many of the hotel’s facilities are not just for residents but also for members of the public to come and enjoy a high-quality lifestyle, making La Manga Club an even more attractive place to live your dream.

7. A private beach – La Cala del Barco

In addition to being close to the spectacular beaches of the Mar Menor, La Manga Club has access to a secluded cove – available for its residents, guests and visitors to enjoy soaking up the sunshine in peace while enjoying the unspoilt scenery and stunning views. 

Its location means that it’s usually relatively quiet, making it the ideal place to swim in clear water, relax and unwind – and enjoy a long lunch at the restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean sea. 

For those looking for more excitement, special events are often held at La Cala on summer evenings at the La Manga Club beach bar. Just 1km from the resort centre, La Cala can be easily accessed from the resort by a bus-taxi service throughout the summer months.

8. La Manga Club gastronomy

There are over 20 bars and restaurants to choose from at La Manga Club resort, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.  

Refined dining starts at the Principe Felipe Hotel in the elegant Amapola Restaurant, where exquisite Mediterranean cuisine is on the menu. Special mention should be made of the Piano Bar as the ideal place to sample pre-dinner, classic and exotic cocktails. 

Elsewhere on the resort are many other excellent restaurants serving up a variety of dining experiences from around the world. Savour sumptuous seafood served in a cliff-top position overlooking the beach at La Cala, or indulge in an explosion of Spanish flavours at Abela Teresa. There’s a wealth of delicious choices to tempt any taste buds, from 5-star dining to tasty bar snacks and everything in between.

All the restaurants can provide a children’s menu and are family-friendly.
