How to Get from Murcia Airport to La Manga

La Manga is a very unique destination thanks to its unusual landscape. It’s basically a sand spit that is 21 kilometres long and 100 metres wide and separates the Mediterranean Sea from the Mar Menor; with its multiple luxury holiday resorts, it’s an attractive summer destination for visitors from all around the world.

If your flight arrives at Murcia Airport, you have two different transportation options to get to La Manga.
