La Manga is a seaside spit in Murcia, Spain. The strip is 22 km long and 100 meters wide (average), separates the Mediterranean from the Mar Menor (Minor Sea) lagoon, from Cabo de Palos to the Punta del Mojón.

Historically, it was known by the Romans as Palus and later by the Moors as Al Buhayrat Al Qsarand. In the 17th century the name was changed to March Chico, which means “small sea” and later as El Mar Menor. Originally it was a bay opening into the Mediterranean, at either end, volcanic reefs gradually held back the sand and sediment that was dragged by the currents to form a sandy column of dunes and rock vegetation and long beaches in contact with two seas. La Manga sandbar is cut off by natural channels that keep the two seas in contact with each other, the so-called golas allow water from the Mediterranean sea. As such, the space was untouched until 1960, when La Manga was discovered as a tourist resort and underwent a transformation which included the urbanization of the area and the construction of tourist infrastructures.
