El Pedrucho, La Manga

La Manga is a seaside spit of Mar Menor on the coast of Murcia. It is a major sports and leisure resort.

The Mar Menor with its 5 islands and having shallow and protected waters, lends itself to being an international water-based sports station.

There are sailing and skiing schools that run periodical courses, as well as windsurfing and catamarans, and canoeing. In the nearby town of Los Belones is a stadium, La Manga Stadium, known for hosting numerous football clubs from all over the world during the winter months. La Manga Cup at La Manga Club has been staged every year since 1999. The 2011, 2012, and 2013 Copa del Sol tournaments were also held partly at the stadium, as were many of the 2000–01 Nordic Football Championship matches.
