Mar de Cristal is one of the small villages that have grown up around the shores of the Mar Menor. It has a very small marina, a lovely fine sandy beach and a promenade that links via the beach to Playa Honda in the south. The village centre is relatively small with a selection of bars, cafes and shops, but the stunning views from the beach across to the La Manga Strip make a visit here well worth it!

Ideas of places to twin Mar de Cristal with day or night
Start your day with a coffee stop here then venture into the Sierra Mineras, to see the effect that years of mining have had on the landscape and end your day in the hustle and bustle of Cartagena city at the marina
After a day exploring the nearby Calblanque Regional Park enjoy a well deserved cerveza or vino and tapas whilst looking out over the waters of the Mar Menor.
In the evening try out the restaurants and bars in Los Belones or on the La Manga Club Resort.
Night life, try out the Bongo Bongo club on the La Manga strip or the Aussie bar in Cabo de Palos along with several other great night clubs.
