  • Take a Mud Bath - In Lo Pagan, San Pedro Del Pintor, you will find on the right hand side of the walkway the beautiful Mar Menor Sea and on the left hand the ‘Mud Baths’. Take a dip in the ‘mud baths’, cover your body with the mud you find either on the bottom of the sea floor or on the wooden jetty (be prepared it can get quite hot in the summer months…. oh and smelly). Once covered take a stroll to dry off and let the magical nutrients get to work. Afterwards dip back in to wash yourself off then hop along to the other side and have a sunbath and a swim in the clear waters of the Mar Menor
