Playa Honda is superbly located just before La Manga and Cabo de Palos, next to the camping site, Mar de Cristal, Playa Paraiso, Los Belones, La Manga Club, golf courses and the spectacular natural Calblanque beach.
There are beaches all around you… you will be spoilt for choice!
And Calblanque beaches are nothing short of paradise and are a MUST VISIT!
Playa Honda offers a semi-urban beach with fine golden sand and a wide marine promenade that extends along the shores of the Mar Menor sea. This body of water is much smaller and more saline than the Mediterranean Sea, which it joins at a further point in La Manga.
The Mar Menor, with its 180 km surface area, constitutes the largest salt water lagoon in Europe. The Mar Menor is perfect for a peaceful dip / swim and its tranquil, shallow and calm waters are especially ideal for children.

The natural environment, good climate, water quality and the best conditions for different wáter sports convert this area into a well renowned tourist destination.
Some of the surrounding areas such as the natural spaces of Calbanque are protected by law, so that the flora and fauna can flourish without the risks posed by human developments.
Some magnificent attractions to visit include a rich mining and fishing heritage, culture-rich Cartagena, a wide gastronomic offer, very varied sports and leisure options (La Manga Club, golf, tennis, football, cricket, luxury spa…) and especially the best conditions for a numerous variety of water sports, like sailing, diving, snorkeling, kite surf…
