Our Waters

Mar Menor

The Mar Menor, in the Region of Murcia, is the largest saltwater lagoom in Europe, occupying an area of135 km2, with more than 300 days of sunshine per year and a mean temperature of 19 ⁰C (66 ⁰F).

The composition of its waters, rich in salts and minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, chlorides and sulphates, give them properties which, combined with their muds and the benefits of the marine climate, make them an important aid in looking after our health.

To the north of the Mar Menor are a series of salt lakes where its waters are concentrated through evaporation, thereby substantially multiplying their therapeutic properties.


In our programmes we make use of the benefits of the marine climate, the hypersaline water and the sea muds.

Our pools, containing water from the salt lakes of the Mar Menor, with a salinity of 200 g / L and a temperature of 35 ⁰C (95 ⁰F), produce percutaneous dialysis, through which toxins, fatty acids and uric acid are expelled, but also, because of this exchange, you take oligoelements and minerals, calcium, iodine and magnesium, from the water.

The buoyancy of this water reduces the weight of a person by practically 90 percent, and this, combined with the temperature, makes it possible to achieve rapid rehabilitation processes.

All this makes it very helpful for a number of conditions, such as rheumatoid disease, psoriasis, fibromyalgia, stress, muscle problems, etc.
