About
Small lakes with very warm water, and deck and step access provided. People bathe in these pools and smear the mud from the bottom over their bodies. The mud is reportedly excellent for damaged skin and for arthritic pain.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Loved this place, can’t believe I had never been until now. Will definitely return.
Bring a bucket or cut the top off a 5 litre bottle of water to gather the mud in. Mud is at the bottom of the lake/sea bed. It’s about 3-4 ft deep. Lather up and dry in the sun, then back into the water to wash off.
It can get everywhere and can stain, so dark swimwear/flip flops recommended.
I would bring swim shoes with me next time as some stones etc on the lake bed.

The lake with the mud is free to the public, just across from Mar Menor sea. I took my mother who suffers from arthritis there and a month on she says her joints are less painful and less stiff. The mud is also an excellent body scrub. The town is not that touristy and I liked that a lot. Many visitors are Spanish and they have been coming here for several years. You can make a lot of friends while you wait for the mud to dry off. I wish I had discovered the place earlier and would thoroughly recommend it. Don’t expect a typical hustle and bustle of a coastal resort, at times all you can hear is the flamingoes.

Lots of fun to mud up! I always take the opportunity to do it. There is a nice bar in front to have a beer and smaller plates. Down the street a place to have churros with dark chocolate. Indulge central!

Free of charge. Good space and enough mud for everyone. Smells bad, but they say that the mud is Healthy. You might have to park many 100 meters away from the place. Nice Beach 30 meters from the mud.

A fun thing to do, completely free of charge. Go prepared, with a small bucket or cut off bottle to scoop the mud with. We also bought 2 cheap sponges from the supermarket to clean it off with, afterwards.

Cover yourself in mud or couples cover each other (very funny to do). Bake yourself in the sun, you can walk about nearby or stay on the wooden platforms.
When you’re ‘done’, slip into the warm, very shallow salt waters to rinse off.
There are also the usual beach showers the other side of the promenade, but you shouldn’t be swimming in the Sea with the mud on your body (see advisory notice).
Flamingos frequent the salt lagoons too, which is really special.

Plenty of nearby places to eat and drink and a nice beach, too. Well worth a trip.
*Don’t wear anything special. The mud has slightly stained the white part of my cozzie. Your skin will feel super soft afterwards. You’d pay good money to do this anywhere else! Fab day out.

Just on the way back to Vera after our visit to the mud Bath at San Pedro , happy and relaxed after our spa treatment at the mud baths, what a treat it was and such fun , take a small bucket to scoop up the mud and slap it on your skin, let it dry for 20 mins then rinse of and your skin will be baby soft , there’s also a little hypersaline canal at the side which is salt water , you really need to soak in this after the mud Bath it’s amazing and it’s all free , I would have gladly paid for this experience , I feel like I have had a spa treatment , and the surroundings are beautiful having flamingos so close , don’t miss this wonderful day if you need something a little different .
