An enormous site, 75% occupied by permanently occupied pitches with static caravans hidden behind an large variety of 'structures', some actually bricks and mortar. The touring pitches are rectangular level and all separated by hedges and there a plenty of trees for shade. The touring pitches all have electricity, water and drainage and are separated from the 'shanty town' zone at the top of the site. It is is a long walk from that area to the 'beach' and the restaurant (which is ok). If you are thinking of using this site you should read up about the "Mar Menor"(the large salt water lagoon where this site is located) and the pollution issues. Personally I wouldn't use this site again.
Response from the Club:
We`re sorry to read that you weren`t happy with La Manga. The campsite is very large with a number of cabins for rent to tourists plus many static units used by permanent residents, although touring pitches do still account for over 60% of the campsite pitches. First impressions when initially driving through the campsite may surprise some members as the main road goes past the permanently sited residential area before reaching the touring pitch side. The residential area has a large variety of adapted static vans which may look haphazardly built upon. The touring area as you say, is separate to the residential area and has well sized pitches separated by hedges for privacy or shade.
The campsite does have a loyal following amongst members, who return to the campsite every year, especially in winter to enjoy the facilities and entertainment on-site and in the local area.
We cannot avoid the well publicised environmental issues experienced by the Mar Menor in recent years but understand that the local authorities are investing in a cleaning operation alongside various environmental initiatives in an attempt to secure the future of the lagoon. We will continue to keep the situation under review whilst we continue our partnership with this popular campsite.
