The Mar Menor Ferry picks up from the pier in the centre of Santiago de la Ribera, and visits other towns and the islands of the Mar Menor, at which you can stop off and enjoy a delicious lunch of freshly caught and barbecued sardines.
Parking is on the roads anywhere you can find a space and is free. From there, walk along the promenade to the Miramar de Ribera Restaurante, the large white building on the shores of the Mar Menor, opposite the Hotel Ribera. The wooden pier, by the restaurant, is where the ferry departs. The Mirimar offers free fares on the Mar Menor ferry, if you purchase a meal there.
There are restaurants and a promenade at the La Manga side, but not much else, but it is a pleasant 30 minute boat ride.
