Details

Santa Pola can be found off the N332 between Torrevieja and Alicante just 8km from the airport. It’s a busy coastal town with lots to see and do, and it attracts large numbers of visitors throughout the year.


Santa Pola has a lot to offer holidaymakers yet it still retains its Spanish character and traditions. The locals are very proud of their town and it’s history, but are also extremely friendly and welcoming.


The sea has always played a big part in Santa Pola’s history and in the past it had one of the biggest fishing fleets in the Mediterranean. It is believed the town came into existence around 4BC with fishermen and traders settling here and it gained greater status with the arrival of The Romans and their development of the port. To this day, the port is thriving with fishermen bringing in the days catch for the local restaurants and fish market, which can be found permanently located in the port. The marina also has a variety of water sports on offer as well as tutoring in sailing, rowing and canoeing.


Outside the town there are the Salinas or salt flats that were extensively mined in the past but have now been designated a nature reserve. This makes the area a haven for birdwatchers. Migratory birds spend the winter here and other aquatic species such as albatross have made it their natural home.


Santa Pola has almost 15km of fine, sandy beaches, lively nightlife and plenty of golf courses in the surrounding areas. There are some fine historic buildings and museums to visit including the impressive fortress castle. Winding streets, peaceful plazas and ruins add to the historic ambience. All these factors have made Santa Pola the incredibly popular resort it is today and it is highly recommended for a visit or holiday.
