Here, in this unspoilt corner of Southern Spain on the Costa Calida (warm Coast, mostly thanks to the micro-climate created by the amazing inland sea called the Mar Menor) Portman is an ideal getaway for couples, families, ramblers, golfers and cyclists.

Portman has a pharmacy, health centre, 3/4 supermarkets, 2 banks, approx. seven or eight bars and a very traditional and renowned restaurant, Casa Cegarra, specialising in traditional paella and local cuisine, all only a few minutes walk away.

 The village of Portman is an old mining village set in a huge bay, with the contrast of the historic remnants of an era long gone and the flourishing newly developing village scene, set in beautiful hillsides where you can walk for miles.

There are also fantastic cycling routes for road bikes and mountain bikes. The villagers are full of character and their friendly nature makes Portman a very special place to spend time.

 It is a ruggedly beautiful and relaxing getaway with the convenience of being a short drive (5 minutes) from the exclusive five-star La Manga Golf Club and Spa. Set in 1500 acres, anyone can indulge in the many holiday activities on offer and you can hire bikes from here; it has three world class golf courses, you can enjoy tennis at one of the best equipped tennis centres in Europe, beach clubs with marvellous water sports, numerous year-round restaurants and bars, nightclubs and a Hyatt Regency casino. In addition, there is a children’s club and there are academies for tennis, golf, football, rugby and a range of dance classes. It also boasts a 5-star luxury Spa, set in the beautiful hillsides of Atamaria, overlooking La Manga which is a strip of land which divides the famous Mar Menor (a vast inland sea with safe and shallow waters, rich in healing minerals and salts, also ideal for water sports!) and the Mediterranean Sea. If you wish to use the La Manga Club facilities, but do not want to pay the high price to stay there, it is worth checking out the La Manga Website: La Manga Club.
