IN a quiet corner of the Region of Murcia lies one of Europe’s largest artificial lakes with crystal-clear waters, known as The Lake. Spanning 17,000 square metres, this paradise is located in Santa Rosalía, in Torre Pacheco. The lake boasts two islands with palm trees and beaches facing south, east, and west, offering a serene setting for visitors.

Crystal-Clear Waters: The Technological Marvel of The Lake

Powered by Crystal Lagoons technology, The Lake maintains its pristine waters efficiently, using significantly fewer additives than conventional methods. This innovation ensures water purification and reuse, marking it as a global leader in sustainable lake management.

A Tropical Escape: Islands, Beaches, and Palm Trees

Visitors can enjoy a variety of activities suitable for all ages and interests. From a beach club and west-facing beach to kayak excursions and paddleboarding from the pier, there’s no shortage of recreational options. Beach volleyball courts are also available, perfect for friendly matches or organised tournaments.
