Where is Aqua Adicta Watersports?

Aqua Adicta Watersports are located in Mar de Cristal in south eastern Spain on the shores of the Mar Menor.  We are 25 minutes drive from Cartagena City and 10 mins from La Manga Club Golf resort.

Local Airports

The closest airport is Murcia International (RMU) which is just 40 mins away. Alicante (ALC) airport is about 1 hour 15 mins. The map shows both Murcia airport and the location of our watersports centre in Mar de Cristal.  Please see our flight information page for more details.

You can either hire a car or have an airport transfer. We would recommend car hire as the roads are good and there are plenty of places to visit in the area.

Transport to the Mar Menor

We recommend car hire for all those who visit the Mar Menor.  The roads are good and the traffic is normally light.  Both buses and trains are available in Murcia and Cartagena Cities however outside high season services in the coastal areas are rather scarce.  See below for links to local bus and train timetables.

Car Hire from Murcia and Alicante Airports

You can hire a car from the airport at Alicate or Murcia or from the train stations in Murcia or Cartagena.  Please see our list of available companies below.  To find our watersports centre you will need a more detailed street map. Check out the Google Map of our location. DO NOT attempt to use Google's directions to find us as they have errors!

The table below shows the companies who provide car hire from the local airports and train stations. Please be aware that hire car companies now show very low up front prices but can have a massive excess on the insurance. I strongly advise you purchase top up insurance before you travel; if you wait until you get here it can go up by as much as 4 times!

In addition fuel policy is normally pick up full, return empty so that they can make more money by selling you a tank of fuel. Some will refund if fuel is left in the tank but they will deduct an admin fee of about 30 euros.  Europcar have a full to full fuel policy and include more insurance in their standard prices. Bottom line is CHECK THE SMALL PRINT!
