San Pedro Del Pinatar

San Pedro Del Pinatar is a traditional working town resting on the north shores of the Mar Menor. It has many shops, a modern church and its main industry is fishing . You can see the fishing boats unloading their catch at the fishing port which overlooks the north end of the La Manga Strip. There are some absolutely fantastic beaches in and around the town of San Pedro del Pinatar. Drive out to the dunes of Playa de la Torre Derribada and Llana beach, where there is a sports harbour and a restaurant, along with ample parking. From here the views of the distant mountains, the Mediterranean and the Mar Menor, and La Manga are excellent. Stay till the early evening to enjoy the amazing sunset. The town itself has excellent sports facilities including tennis and paddle. Hire a bike and enjoy the local scenery as you peddle lazily along the flat quiet roads. Runners and walkers alike will enjoy the promenade and beaches for their chosen activity. The Saltmill of Quintin located on the "Playa de la Mota" used to take water from the Mar Menor to the salt-works. A modern pump next to it has overtaken its function. You can see the flamingos feeding amongst the reeds on the salt flats.
