Mar de Cristal is one of the few small, peaceful, beachside resorts that are dotted along the internal shores of the Mar Menor. It has a small marina, a long sandy beach and a promenade that links the beach here to Playa Honda in the south. The seafront is less developed than many and just has a small chiringuito offering sunbeds for hire in Summer and a modern, stylish boutique hotel with a restaurant which is open to the public.
The village centre has a selection of bars, cafes and shops as well as Spar Supermarket and a fantastic tennis club with great facilities. The fantastic golden, sandy beach and stunning views across to the La Manga Strip make Mar De Cristal perfect for anyone looking for that idyllic beach retreat in a beautiful and tranquil environment. Mar De Cristal is just a 5 minute drive or taxi ride away from the beautiful harbour town of Cabo De Palos with its seafront bars, restaurants, shops and lively Summer nightlife. The world famous La Manga Club with its 3 championship golf course, superb sports facilities and its great choice of bars and restaurants is also just a 5 minute drive away. As such Mar De Cristal is an ideal place for those looking for an unspoilt and tranquil beach resort with the superb value for money property just a stones throw from all the tourist and leisure facilities.
