La Torre Golf Resort is located in the beautiful Murcia region of north eastern Spain, on the Costa Blanca. Approximately 120 km south of Alicante and 25km inland from San Javier, the beautiful natural landscape is quite arid but most impressive. The area is renowned for its orchards and its perfect beaches.
The exclusive La Torre Golf Resort is situated around a Jack Nicklaus designed 18-hole golf course set on a beautiful lake. La Torre offers luxury self-catering villa accommodation which makes an ideal base for vacations. The Town Centre of the resort provides a focal point for all the activities from shopping and restaurants to a fully-equipped business centre, fitness complex, luxury Spa, tennis courts and so much more. When you book a self-catering villa at La Torre, you don’t just rent a villa, you get a lifestyle!
Of course, many people come to La Torre specifically to play golf on the challenging course in the guaranteed sunshine. Further practice can also be enjoyed at the driving range and putting green or take some lesson from the Pro at the La Torre Golf School.
The Spa is a decadent way to relax and enjoy being pampered, or just sit and people watch from one of the outdoor cafés as you work on your tan.
The area around San Javier and Torrevieja is known for its beautiful sandy beaches. Some have water sports, some are quiet sandy coves, but venture out exploring and you will soon find your own favourite.
The city of Murcia is the capital city of the region and has a wealth of architectural treasures dating back over 800 years.
