Región de Murcia

Take care of yourself on the inside and the outside: come to the Mar Menor and discover the marvellous properties of its muds and clays, which have been famous for centuries. Come at any time of the year to this fabulous natural health centre. Its privileged climate and a wide range of leisure activities and services will help you to enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating experience throughout the year.

Why not visit a healthy paradise of infinite beaches, crystal clear waters, moderate temperatures and magnificent hotel infrastructures? Visit Murcia. The Mar Menor is a large coastal lake, measuring some 170 square kilometres, with salt, warm waters and clays which have purifying and therapeutic characteristics. Get away from it all for a few days and treat yourself to a stimulating and healthy rest at any time of the year.

The specific climatic conditions of the Mar Menor have meant that therapeutic clays have been deposited here for centuries. Make the most of the many beneficial effects of these clays and enjoy a rejuvenating stay. Among other properties, the clays give certain basic elements for a healthy body, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. The clays are also recommended as anti-inflammatories for cases of rheumatism, arthritis or gout; they are also recommended as a treatment for acne and other skin problems. They are also great purifiers due to their great power of absorption: a layer of clay acts like blotting paper, eliminating all the toxins from the dermis.

A simple treatment

The most well-known area for clay baths can be found at the northernmost tip of the lagoon, at la Puntica. The process is very simple and can be done by anybody: all you have to do is cover your skin with clay using your hands or a spatula and, when sufficient time has passed, you wash your skin clean with salt water. You can take clay baths throughout the year, although we recommend that you do it in the sun and when it is hot so that the clay layer will dry more quickly.

You can also make the most of the properties of the clay by visiting the spas and specialist centres of the region. You will find the most modern and best equipped installations offering a large variety of treatments using thermal clays, hydrotherapy, anti-stress programmes and massages.

Pamper yourself for a few days in this marvellous health spa. Get away from it all and enjoy the natural health facilities of the Mar Menor.
