Torrevieja is set on the Costa Blanca coast, boasting fine sandy beaches, friendly locals and enough watersports to entertain active holiday makers throughout the year. However, Torrevieja’s appeal is not only in relation to the seaside. The two enormous salt lakes which characterise the town and the intriguing history of the area, combined with the relaxed way of life and gastronomic treasures make taking a holiday villa in Torrevieja a real treat. Torrevieja is not a package holiday destination, as visitors here like to independently rent a Torrevieja holiday home or apartment.
The best beaches in Torrevieja are the beaches at La Mata and Los Locos. These are idyllic holiday destinations for sun, sea and sand lovers, boasting spectacular sweeping, sandy blue flag beaches and bustling promenades. La Mata also provides for those who enjoy a relaxing spa or rheumatic mud-bath. The largest open-air market in Spain is in the town of Torrevieja, held every Friday.
Quesada is a lovely sleepy town nestled on the coast 10km from Torrevieja Town. Quesada has plenty of bars, golf courses and a fun waterpark, yet has retained a slower pace of life than many seaside resorts on the Costa Blanca, and is named by the World Health Organisation as the second healthiest place in the world.
Sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, and swimming are hugely popular along this stretch of the coast, and Torrevieja is no exception. Torrevieja has become famed for the amount of entertainment on offer, with over a hundred bars and nightclubs combined with cosmopolitan leisure areas. Day trips, cruises and fishing expeditions can all be taken from the marina.
The region can easily be discovered by car or bus, but to really uncover some local treasures, walking, cycling or horse riding give you that added affinity with the countryside, and let you relax and take in the magnificent scenery at your own pace.
