The lovely town of Santiago de la Ribera is the name given to the coastal area adjacent to San Javier and it lies within the Murcia region, on the shores of the Mar Menor.
La Ribera has a very lovely promenade flanked by attractive palm trees and with Summer beach bars along its route. Today Santiago is still popular with the Spanish for their vacations but also attracts visitors from all over Europe and although it has a modern air, it has still maintained a lot if its original charm and has not been over developed.
The 4 kms of fine sandy beaches with calm, shallow waters, are ideal for all kinds of water sports and activities or just relaxing on the beach. From the Marina you can take a boat trip around the calm waters of the mar Menor or take a ferry across to La Manga Strip on the opposite side of the bay.
The 'Dos Mares' shopping centre is nearby and has a wide range of shops, family friendly restaurants, an arcade and bowling alley. A little further is a new retail and leisure development at La Zenia (20 minutes by car). The major cities of Cartagena and Murcia are also easily reached by car or bus.
Santiago de la Ribera is just a 10 minute drive from San Javier airport and is the perfect location for a holiday home or a permanent residence. Whilst the population grows in Summer, unlike some destinations it does not become “ dead “ in Winter and has a healthy number of permanent residents which sustain local business, services and activities. There are shops, bars and restaurants located on the sea front and in the town centre and for the night owls there is a good choice of music bars and discos which stay open until the very small hours during Summer.
