Mar Menor Weather

Weather along the shores of the Mar Menor is mild, making it ideal for holidays in both the summer & winter. The area is sheltered by hills and high mountains making this a kind of micro climate. This limits rainfall, as a result the region enjoys sunshine for in excess of 320 days per year. The sun is hottest during the July and August, with temperatures rarely falling below 30°C. The typically mild winters boast averages of around 17°C.

Mar Menor area is famous for its salt lakes, which has a major effect on humidity levels, as a result the air is dryer than other parts of Spain.

Great Holiday

This was a lovely apartment opposite the beach and part of a great complex with indoor/outdoor pools, gym and playground. Our kids really enjoyed the stay with the beach over the road perfect for them as the sea stayed at ankle length as you walked out. Local amenities including a couple of cafes/restaurants and supermarket were great and this provided a nice quiet getaway for the family with no neon lights or loud music to spoil the serenity. Local transport (buses) were great once we located the bus stop and there were some lovely places to visit slightly further afield. The apartment had everything we needed as well as useful beach toys (blow up boat, li-lo, bucket and spade etc.) as well as bikes. There was no need to travel too far and we enjoyed a very relaxing break.
