Staying in La Manga I was curious about the other extremity of the narrow stripe of sand, ending in S Pedro del Pinatar. I went there, had a look, and was surprised by the image and smell of tons of algae.
It was not attractive, but the beach is long and wide, however, we had the excellent La Manga waiting for the afternoon swim and didn't go further.

Several companies run routes to Murcia and Cartagena so make sure when looking at a timetable, ensure you know which company the times are for. Our coach was airconditioned. Also, check times of the last return coach. You may not have time to fit in an evening meal as when we went in September, the last coach left at 8pm which about the same time the restaurants opened.
If you have mobility problems, be warned - When we went out for a day trip to Cartagena, the transport was a coach rather than a bus. There were quite a few steep steps to get in and my wheelchair had to be stored in the luggage compartment under the coach.

Photo Equipment: A camera is also a must, for the obligatory picture of you smothered in mud!
Miscellaneous: If planning on a mud wrap - self inflicted of course, at the beach then do bring a towel as I doubt the hotel would be impressed if you use theirs!! Its easy to wash the mud off in the sea but any reminaing mud is very dark grey and bound to mark a nice white hotel towel!!
