Santiago De La Ribera / Lo Pagan
Santiago De La Ribera/Lo Pagan is one of the beautiful and most popular resorts lying on the Mar Menor. Boasts some fine beaches and shallow, safe bathing waters - ideal for family vacations. This fishing village grew as a prime holiday destination for wealthy Murcians who built their houses along the coast. Santiago has a very lovely promenade flanked by attractive palm trees. Today Santiago is still popular with the Spanish for their vacations but also attracts tourists from all over Europe and although it has a modern air, it has still maintained its fishing village atmosphere. Santiago de la Ribera has about 4 kilometres of fine sandy beaches which can be enjoyed by holiday makers and can get very busy during the hot summer months when both Spanish and international tourist arrive to enjoy the sunshine and the warm waters of the Mar Menor.
