Area Guide | Torrevieja

Torrevieja is about 50 kilometres south of Alicante and is right on the coast. The coastline of Torrevieja is very extensive, with a total of 14 km of beautiful seafront where you can find a multitude of urban beaches, coves and secluded spots where you can cool off, many of them idyllic. Any visitor to Torrevieja is bound to visit the harbour area with its numerous restaurants, tapas bars and shops. The fish restaurants are a must as the fish is fresh in from the local fishing boats. Torrevieja has many attractive parks, gardens and squares such as the Paraje Natural Municipal Molino del Agua and the Park of Nations where you can sit down and just relax under the shade.

Torrevieja is surrounded by the salt lakes of the Salinas de la Mata and the Salinas de Torrevieja and as a result the climate is meant to be very healthy especially for people with arthritis. Connected with each other, the salt mines were declared a Nature Reserve; they reach the sea through La Mata. Salt mining in this region goes back to the beginning of Christianity, though it reached its peak during the 19th century. Nowadays, Torrevieja's salt is exported to the whole world, and the annual production exceeds a million tons. The salt lakes are protected and form a natural habitat for numerous protected species of bird such as the Flamingo and Montagu’s harrier. For sightseeing in Torrevieja you can enjoy the fish market, the Church of La Inmaculata Conception, the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Rosario, tour of the S-61 Delfin submarine and the museum of sea and salt.

Torrevieja’s indoor market offers fish, meat and fresh vegetables. Make sure you visit the local market selling fresh fruits and vegetables as well as other locally-made goods and produce – market day in Torrevieja is on a Friday. Torrevieja is also home to the Habaneras Shopping Centre. All summer long you can enjoy a night market and funfair at the promenade which is worth a visit.

Torrevieja is a big bustling city full of life and entertainment, with the bowling alley, cinema, 2 water parks, shopping centres and lots of parades and processions going on throughout the year there is always something to do.
