La Manga Club Private Beach
On the first day we fly early in the morning from Amsterdam to Madrid with KLM Royal Dutch airlines. Then we take a short 45 min. flight from Madrid to Allicante with Iberia. This would be the first time flying as a standy passenger with Iberia, and it was a very positive experience.

After the security check, next to the transfer counter in Terminal 4, Iberia has a special counter for Standby Travel. You just report to this desk, and if a seat is available they will give you boarding pass there and they'll clear the luggage.

At Allicante Airport we pick up our rental car and head on south to Los Belones, which is about an hour drive. We check in at our home for the next 7 days, the Hyatt Las Lomas Village at La Manga club. It's designed to look like a small Spanish village, with 2 outdoor pools, a spa, 3 restaurants, 2 bars and a small cafe.

The Hyatt also provides a shuttle bus service that runs through the whole La Manga Club resort.

The La Manga Club is one of more larger resorts in Spain; 3 golfcourses, 20 bars / restaurants, Hyatt Las Lomas Village, Hyatt Regency hotel, private beach and much more. Most of the resort is private gated with 24hr security force patrolling the grounds, they even setup roadblocks at night (to keep the locals out ?? ;-) ).

Just a very short ride from the resort is La Manga del Mar Menor, which is a strip of land between the Mediterianen Sea and the Mar Menor lagoon. The lagoon is awesome. The water temperature is always nice and warm, but it's not too deep so swimming is not easy. The lagoon is very high on salt, more then the sea. The beaches are very clean and sunbeds are available for rental on both sides of the strip.

After two days looking around, we also found some secluded beaches in the naturalpark Cobaticas, which is next to the resort. It's a fun drive going there, made us feel like we were in the middle of the dessert. Only dirtroads take you to these beaches. I guess a lot of locals go here, not many tourists around. The beaches weren't as clean as on the strip, no cleaning crew here that cleans the beaches every night.
