Costa Cálida – the Hot Coast. Here some of the most popular tourist resorts in Spain are located. A broad lagoon called Mar Menor (the Minor Sea) makes one end of it. The lagoon itself is of triangular shape, the water inside it can be even 5°C warmer than in the surrounding Mediterrenean. For years it has attracted many tourists because highly concentrated salt contained in its waters has therapeutic properties. The sand bar La Manga (The scarf), that separates the lagoon from the open azure sea reminds of Miami Beach thanks to many high hotel buildings. From the local port take start cruises to Isla Perdiguera – one of the five small islands of the Mar Menor. The famous beach Lan Puntica offers therapeutic mud baths in salt ponds soothing rheumatic pains and healing skin. Near La Manga are also one of the most beautiful and most exclusive golfcourses in the world.
