Playa Honda is located close to La Manga, just off the Cartagena Road. Much like Mar De Cristal, Playa Honda is a small, peaceful resort located on the interior shoreline of the Mar Menor.
The resort has a gently shelving beach directly onto the Mar Menor. Playa Honda has a short promenade backed by the urbanization of villas and apartments. There are facilities on the beach for water sports and showering. Horse riding is also available locally. The Mar Menor, and La Manga make for some very pleasant cycle rides too.
Murcia is just a short drive away and offers cultural attractions and shopping. Cartagena is also nearby and offers plenty of historical tour guides and museums.
There is a supermarket close to the seafront, within the resort. Nearby, on the main La Manga strip, there are many further shops, and there are also banks. There is a pharmacy close to the shop in the resort. There is also a local market in La Manga every Thursday offering fresh fruit and vegetables plus an array of handcrafted goods.
Playa Honda has a selection of bars and restaurants within the resort, but for more variety La Manga Strip is a short drive away.
