Perdiguera Island

Mar Menor
-San Javier-

Spanish name: Isla Perdiguera

Perdiguera Island in Mar Menor Located in the middle of Mar Menor and very near Baron Island, this is the second largest island with nearly 26 hectares. This volcanic island is connected to a small peninsula by means of a rock formation known as “isla Esparteña” because of the large amount of esparto grass in it.
 
Just like Isla Mayor, Perdiguera was also owned by Barón de Benifayó, who ceded it to the Central Administration. During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) the island was used as a bombing practice ground. Many bombs that did not go off made walking on this island very dangerous. In the 1990s a campaign for bomb detection and deactivation was launched prior to the construction of beach stalls. In the late 90s, Perdiguera became a tourist destination causing environmental deterioration, which is why in 2007 Coastal Regulations established the need to close down the beach stalls and develop a more sustainable form of tourism.
