SUP or stand up paddle :
This is one of the newest activities on offer in la manga !
Stand up paddle is all about balancing and getting around on top of the water using a long paddle.
This will work your shoulders and your core muscles which is good way to tone up your body.
There is also some centers offering yoga on the boards which will help give you that beach body you always wanted.
The route of this activity usually starts inside the mar menor , heads through the channel that goes into the Mediterranean where you will paddle towards a beach bar for some refreshments.
Minimum time is 2 hours for learning , but you can just hire a board for a hour up to one day if you have already done this.
