Santiago de la Ribera

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. Santiago de la Ribera looks across the Mar Menor to the narrow strip of land known as La Manga - a famous and exclusive sports resort. Enjoy delicious paella in one of the magnificent sea food restaurants on the sea front.

Our thoughts: Beautiful "old fishing village” now popular holiday destination for all nationalities. Remains unspoilt and retains its original charm. Well worth a look with a great place to take a stroll down the glorious promenade that goes all the way round to Lo Pagan. Not too much development here so finding properties always a challenge as no one wants to sell, they love it so much!
