Mud Baths San Pedro del Pinatar in Costa Cálida
The particular climatic conditions of the Mar Menor, with a high percentage of hours of sunshine per year and high salinity, have led to the deposit of very suitable sludge in the northern end of the lagoon in the area known as Las Charcas for therapeutic treatments.
Analysis carried out by the University of Murcia (1995) shows that these sediments contain a high percentage of cations, calcium, magnesium, potassium and fluorine, as well as anions, chloride and sulfate, much higher than expected, even in This salinity. In addition, medical granulomere in this area includes a high presence of fine and very fine sands (limes and clays), which are the true creators of the healing properties attributed to the sludge.
The pH is basic and oscillates between the values of 7.12 and 8.45
