We made our way back to the truck then set off on the bikes in the other direction around the bay.
After that we hit La Manga proper, which to me seems a strange place. It's strung out along a spit of land with a salt water lagoon on one side and the sea on the other, the seaward side has been over developed in a strange way with the hotels all fronting onto the beach, not even a footpath. Perhaps it's because it's low season and most of the hotels are empty but it leaves the sea front a bit lost....no bars, prom or life.
We did visit the lagoon side that seems to have been more sympathetically managed with more private development.
After a good bike ride and a long chat with two German girls who had parked up next to us "we first met them in Calpe" we hit the road south to shorten our journey tomorrow. We found a beautiful place to park peaceful and surrounded by sea.
