Leisure (Restaurants – Shops – Shopping Centres)
The La Manga Club boasts more than 15 bars and restaurants, all of differing styles: covering everything from traditional Mediterranean cuisine to the more avant-garde trends. More classical tastes can be found in a variety of restaurants such as Amapola, La Bodega or La Cala; Asia, Dharma and Luigi restaurants also provide an incredible gastronomic experience without having to leave the resort. This comes together to complete the experience of entertainment and relaxation at La Manga Club, in order to recharge batteries after taking part in any of the various sporting activities offered by the resort or to simply have some fun after relaxing at its 2,000m2 Spa and Fitness Centre.
Together with the sixteen beaches at La Manga and the bays of Cabo de Palos, the spot offers plenty of leisure opportunities. There are numerous places of historic interest and natural beauty all along this narrow stretch of sand. Cartagena is the closest large city and naval port, which dates back more than 3,000 years. The city is home to some of the most important collections of Punic, Roman and Byzantine architecture in Spain. Part of this cultural patrimony is in the Municipal Archaeological Museum and the National Museum of Underwater Archaeology.
Just a 10-minute drive away is Cabo de Palos, a small fishing village, where in recent years a number of pubs, bars and restaurants have sprung up along the port promenade. One of the biggest shopping attractions is, without a doubt, the market that is held every Sunday in Cabo de Palos. La Manga has a wide variety of shopping on offer, which stands out for its good service, quality and an international flavour, also specialising in Mediterranean cuisine, with a large variety of rices and fresh fish. The concentration of fun establishments amps up around Plaza Bohemia, the true heart of La Manga.
