Provela’s sailing club is located in the village marina of Mar de Cristal on the shores of the Mar Menor a 170 square kilometre lagoon, with great winds which has been affectionately dubbed “one of sailing’s best kept secrets”. With  fine sandy beach and a promenade that links via the beach to Playa Honda in the south, with a selection of bars, cafes and shops, but the stunning views from the sailing club and beach across to the La Manga Strip make a visit here well worth it!
