Camping La Manga lies in the south-east of Spain on the Mar Menor lagoon, which is separated from the Mediterranean by a narrow strip of land. There are sandy beaches on both sides. There are a few small islands in the salt water lagoon which is home to several bird species. There are also mud baths which supposedly have a therapeutic effect. In the vicinity of the camping grounds are many sights.
For a lovely day out you can go to Murcia and see the highest cathedral of Spain with beautiful clock tower, go back to ancient times in Cartagena or go for a drive along the shore of the Mar Menor lagoon. Nature Park Calbanque lies on the south side of the camping site.
Camping of almost one km
If you stay on Camping La Manga with your own camping equipment, you stand on a pitch which is separated by green hedges and trees. The surface is covered with gravel and all pitches have water connections and drainage as well as electricity.
Camping La Manga has several ablution blocks which are spread over the grounds. The camping site extends for almost one km, so a (folding) bicycle would come in handy.
Salt water lake or to the swimming pool
The camping site is situated on Mar Menor where tall palm trees create an exotic atmosphere. The lake is shallow, which makes it ideal for children. You can take sailing, canoeing and windsurfing lessons and there are several eating establishment by the lagoon. On the camping site itself you will find a large swimming pool with a separate children's pool and an indoor pool.

Horrible place - we left as fast as possible. It did have a beach and palm trees but was on a lagoon, not the sea. Small, very trodden, dirty-looking beach; water shallow, warm and packed with people, even off-season. Safe for children. Ugly gravel pitches and old-fashioned facilities. Dirty, uncleared tables in restaurant. Yuk!
Ignore the shacks at the top of the site. Nothing wrong with them but you may initially think you’ve made a mistake.
Anyone who has been here before will tell you that this site is excellent.
Everyone is super friendly, people that you met on a previous visit are also back and they remember and acknowledge you.
Language is no barrier to the friendliness of the campers.
If you prefer privacy, every pitch gives you this.
The restaurant view is idyllic and a lovely place to have a meal or just a coffee.
You can walk or cycle around the area with like minded people or the beach is straight off the campsite.
If you like water sports or swimming in safe waters you will love this site.
The washrooms are spotless and cleaned regularly throughout the day
I have my favourites in the reception centre and my not so favourites, some are more helpful and friendly than others but no complaints overall.
Very good campsite, however a lot of chalets now being sited. Spar shop onsite food out of date, flies round rotting onions
Good campsite friendly staff toilets and showers cleaned 3 times a day. Reasonable food no Gordon’s gin this year. Spar shop on site make sure you check dates as products past sell by date, especially onions that were rotting and flies.
The campsite had excellent facilities, we had a serviced pitch with water waste drainage and electricity
First impressions are slightly alarming when confronted by ‘shacks’ but once settled onto a really nice and spacious pitch surrounded by like minded campers, the approach just became part of the holiday and caused no concerns whatsoever. The reception staff are friendly and go out of their way to be helpful.
The facilities were cleaned at least three times per day and were spotless and the cleaners were lovely, friendly people. The cafe/ restaurant was on the edge of the lagoon making it a great place to sit and eat/drink and the staff were great.
There are places to walk or cycle to with restaurants and bars along the way.
There is a Spar shop on site and the prices compare favourably with the larger supermarkets in town.
We had a fantastic holiday and cannot wait to return.
Campsite looks like a Shanty Town. Internet not very good on touring pitches. Touring pitches are not bad, quite big and private. Beach not nice at all, muddy not sandy. No shade around swimming pool and nothing to sit on or sunbathe .Recommended to us but we were not impressed. Will not be visiting it again.
We stayed two nights over a very hot weekend. The pitches were large and high hedges provided a little shade. The site is huge with lots of permanently occupied pitches but there were plenty of spaces for our motor home near the beach and restaurant. The on-site shop was large and well-stocked. The shower blocks were exceptionally clean with plenty of showers and the cubicles were roomy. Only drawback was no hot water for washing dishes or clothes. The restaurant food was good and reasonably priced. Staff friendly and helpful. We had a great time and would definitely return.
We were here more than 2 weeks in March 2016, including Easter Holiday.
Advantages: big places, quite separate from others, a lot of opportunities for walking to beach or to supermarket (camping is about 1,5 km long), possibility to ride on bikes, good possibility to wind surfing if you have your own equipment.
Disadvantages: problem with hot water for showers, sometimes you have to wait 10-15 minutes to get hot water; no warm water for washing dishes, no possibility to book exact place in advance.
We were reluctant to visit this site after hearing bad reports of it. However it is a very good site.... Huge and a bit soul-less somehow but it has everything you could need.....especially if you have a dog that needs a bath now and then! It has the best dog shower I have ever used...I want one! Even though it is a huge site it is very quiet and pitches are separated by high hedges so nice and private... I don't think we will go back but it is really a very good site. Sorry I can't find a reason we disliked it because it has everything....and more!!
