They are almost opposite on the map, separated by a small portion of the Mediterranean, and offer us two very different tourism types, showing the diversity that presents Spain as a coastal tourist destination. I am referring to the island of Ibiza and la Manga of the Mar Menor. The island of Ibiza is characterised by its youth travel. Old hippie paradise, still retains the essence of those years in which was about a lifestyle worldwide. It is essential for your visit to make a car hire ibiza and scroll slowly through its coves and markets where to buy necklaces, bracelets and sesenteras t-shirts. Don’t forget to visit the salt mines that are still exploitation since the times of the Carthaginians, which called the area the white gold mine. All this combined with a night life rich and alive if this is desired, with some of the most well known and busiest of all Spain discotheques.
On the other side of the sea, on the peninsula, we have the possibility of making tourism in la Manga of the Mar Menor. This area characterized by calm waters the inland sea is perfect for planning a family tourism. We will achieve the Manga road, we can perform a car hire murcia San Javier airport or from the station of Carmen, in the murcian capital, and reaching the area. Once there we we have in a unique setting, surrounded by two seas from shallow beaches, and with the possibility of making crowd of less than one day excursions: Mazarron, Cabo de Palos or the own Cartagena. Because the Carthaginians already realized the possibilities of both coasts, and did not hesitate to establish cities on both sides of the sea. Las salinas in Ibiza, Cartago Nova in Murcia what would have happened to overcome them in the Punic Wars instead of the Romans? We will never know.
