la mangaLA Manga Golf Resort is set to welcome a boost in visitors after British Airways announced it has added extra flights to the nearby airport.

The airline will now fly twice-weekly to Murcia, making one of Europe’s most popular golf courses more accessible.

Government figures released last month revealed that overseas visitor numbers rose by 45.3% over winter compared to last year, with the number of people travelling from the UK increasing by more than 11% in January alone.
Set in an area three times the size of Monaco and just a 20-minute drive from the airport, La Manga Club’s facilities include three 18-hole golf courses and newly rebranded Golf Training Centre,  a 28-court tennis centre and eight full-size football pitches.

  1. Actially, Stevie, the name is Murcia-San Javier airport. It’s 27 kms SE of Murcia in the town of San Javier. Guess they had to affix “Murcia” to its name because just San Javier would be unidentifiable, but for many, Murcia is also an unknown !
