It contains many destinations of interest for holiday travelers, as its tourism industry thrives on a combination of modern resort communities and historic attractions.

One of the most visited cities in Costa Calida is La Manga. La Manga features twenty-two kilometers of sandy beaches that vary in width from 100 to 800 meters. On one side lie the clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea, while on the other side are the warm waters of Mar Menor, which is Europe's largest salt water lagoon. Water sport enthusiasts flock to La Manga. There is a great scuba diving club that accepts divers of all skill levels. If you want a guide through the waters on either side of the city, they are available. Or, if you'd rather explore on your own, you'll find the variety of ocean life fascinating. Beginners often start in Mar Menor and later move up to boat dives in the Mediterranean when they've gained more experience. Both seas offer a unique view of the world, and divers come from all over the globe to see La Manga's ocean floor.

If diving isn't your thing, La Manga also has a thriving nightlife and a string of world-class restaurants. If you have children, many restaurants feature great kids' menus for those under twelve.
