Murcia is located on the Iberian peninsula of South Eastern Spain. Historically a holy land, the town of Murcia itself is steeped in religious history, with each corner and turn revealing another stunning example of architecture and places of worship over many years passed.
The famous Segura river passes through the old town, leading out to the instantly identifiable spit formation coast of La Manga, with the area remaining a cultural and religious festival hub to the Southern Spanish people. Each year, a festival of cuisine, music and traditional rituals are celebrated with typical Spanish gusto and hospitality.
La Manga Club sits as a bridge between modern luxury, fantastic facilities within a municipality that champions religion and ancient traditions. The resort is situated in the heart of the geological sand spit formation separating the huge 180km square ‘Mar Menor’ saltwater lagoon from the Mediterranean Sea. The resort is large and spread along the spit, helping increase local tourism from select, affluent clientele that ensures that the old Holy Land is never over saturated or exhausted and treated with utmost respect.
