Currently at Almerimar on the Costa del Sol, but it appears Mar Menor (just past Cartagena) is a popular stopover/summer destination
. You can anchor
for free and apparently it is close to two airports to the UK which makes it popular with those who want to go to the UK. We have been told it is a good place to shelter in strong winds.
At Almerimar - most of the winter liveaboards have left and now there are lots of visiting yachts coming into the marina. Good marina prices (on the low side), a good supermarket (Mercadona), laundrettes, pharmacy etc and plenty of bars and restaurants - well worth a visit. There is an VHF
net on Channel 67 at 1000 hrs to find out all you need to know about Almerimar and the surrounding area and an active social life with the yachties and flatties (people who live in apartments).
