Torrevieja

Situated 25 miles south of Alicante Airport , the fishing village of Torrevieja has developed a second economy in recent years that is heavily focused on tourism.

Temperatures top thirty degrees in summer and the sea is a warm twenty-five degrees in August and September. Four splendid Blue Flag main beaches offer fine white sand and clear, clean Mediterranean water - ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving. At the Juan Aparicio Esplanade there are natural pools for bathers who enjoy swimming without waves. Beyond and between the beaches, visitors can explore palm dunes and secluded coves. Public amenities include an information centre, foot-washers, showers and childcare facilities. Lifeguards are on watch and a first aid station is available.

Jardin de los Naciones is a public garden featuring a huge lake in the shape of Europe and offers pleasant walks with exotic menageries and amusements for children.

Lagunas de la Mata Natural Park also has a lake and observation points for birdwatchers.

Molino de Agua Park ( Waterwheel Park) is also worth discovering for its small wildlife and scenic walks through fragrant trees.

The main promenade at the seafront is well served by souvenir shops, bars, restaurants and ice-cream parlours while concession kiosks provide further refreshments of drinks and snacks.

The port is home to many expatriate British, Irish and Scandanavians, which means that there is an availability of familiar foods and beverages from home alongside the local fare which features paella and a wealth of seafood dishes.

Torrevieja is the ideal destination for a family seeking a beach holiday with added entertainments and diversions. Ozone's Leisure Centre provides bowling and an eight screen cinema. Aquapark Rojales and Aquopolis water parks are within reach. 

For golfers there are three courses a little way out of town - one on coast heading south and three inland to the north and north west - Campo de Golf Villamartin, Golf La Finca, Vistabella Golf and La Marquesa Golf. The safari park Rio Safari is close by, also go-karting, a tourist train and the fun fair at Torrevieja esplanade which opens at 6pm. Shop all day in the town, at the Habernas Shopping Centre and Zenia Boulevard and sample the street market on Fridays.
