Located in the province of Murcia, La Manga hugs the Mediterranean coastline on a spit of land separating the sea from a huge lagoon. Murcia has been settled by Romans, Arabs and Christians, all attracted by its fertile soil and pleasant climate. Nowadays, tourists flock here for the world-class sporting facilities, beautiful beaches and dazzling sunshine.

La Manga is ideal for sports enthusiasts: the city is famous for its sporting facilities particularly at the world-renowned La Manga Club resort. Here, professional athletes often rub shoulders with well-heeled tourists. The top sports on offer at the resort include: golf, tennis, football and a variety of water sports.

The city of Murcia is the capital of the region. It's located 70kms from La Manga and surrounded by a splendidly fertile cultivated plain. The most important monument in Murcia is the cathedral. Other important sights include: the Episcopal Palace, the casino and several churches. The city also boasts many fine museums such as: the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of La Huerta.

La Manga means 'The Sleeve', and that has become one of the symbols that best identifies the coast of Murcia as a tourist resort. It is a chain that stretches approximately 24kms from Cabo de Palos to the Punta del Mojón, and is the natural limit of the salt water lake known as the Mar Menor.

Murcia province was first settled by the Romans, and then by the Arabs, following their victory over the Visigoths in 713 AD. The Christians re-conquered the area in 1243 and there followed relative prosperity, interspersed with famines and epidemics, particularly in the 17th century. The 19th century saw rapid industrialisation, which has declined more recently, but has been replaced in the economy by tourism.
