La Manga del Mar Menor: "The origin of Mar Menor" (English guided tour)
A stroll from the port to the Estacio bridge/canal which enables boat traffic between the Mediterranean Sea and the Mar Menor.
We will keep walking to get to the lighthouse where you can learn about its history throughout time. We can see the cistern that supplied water to the lighthouse keepers and their families. Back at the port we will stop to behold the
house of the “father” of La Manga, Tomas Maestre, as well as the opening of the Estacio bridge/canal. Once the tour has finished you can enjoy the local gastronomy at the different
venues in and around the port.
*** The Tour will go on if we reach a minimum of 10 participants. It can be cancelled due to bad weather.
