The Muds of the Mar Menor ... a Spa in the Open Air

The properties of the muds and clays of the Mar Menor have been famous for centuries. Here you can take care of yourself on the inside and outside: its almost perfect climate makes it possible to have the best of both worlds - a wide range of leisure activities and a relaxing and rejuvenating experience - throughout the year. 


Mar Menor

The Mar Menor is a large coastal lake, measuring some 170 square kilometers, with salt, warm waters and clays which have purifying and therapeutic characteristics.  

Its specific climatic conditions have meant that therapeutic clays have been deposited here for centuries. Among other properties, the clays contain certain basic elements for a healthy body, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. They are recommended as anti-inflammatories for rheumatism, arthritis or gout, as well as a treatment for acne and other skin problems, and they are also great purifiers due to their great power of absorption: a layer of clay acts like blotting paper, eliminating all the toxins from the skin. 

The process is very simple and can be done by anyone: all you have to do is cover your skin with clay using your hands or a spatula and, when sufficient time has passed, wash your skin clean in the salt water lake. It’s perfect in the hot sun which makes the clay layer dry more quickly. 

You can also make the most of the properties of the clay by visiting the spas and specialist centers of the region who offer a large variety of treatments using thermal clays, hydrotherapy, anti-stress programmes and massages.
