Destination guide

Book a Torrevieja District villa rental

With miles of glimmering sands that slope into the lapping Mediterranean Sea, vibrant promenades that wiggle past pizza restaurants and lively bars, and a buzzing clutch of after-dark spots to keep the summertime hedonists happy, Torrevieja District is an unsurprising hit with holidaymakers on the Costa Blanca. Come for that classic Spanish spell of sun and sea in one of the Torrevieja District holiday lettings that pepper the town's long and lively playa. Or, choose a more private villa rental in the hills to get a little seclusion between the rising sierras of the beautiful Vega Baja del Segura, a land of palm-dotted mountains and gushing waterfalls.

How to get around

Getting around the Torrevieja District

Your chosen mode of transport in Torrevieja District will depend on what it is you want to get up to on that trip to the Spanish coast. If you just want to stick to Playa del Cura and the happening city promenade, hit the bars and take in resort life, then you'll be able to get by with just a comfy pair of shoes and the couple of local bus links run by Costa Azul. If you're keen to escape to the dusty hills and tour more off-the-beaten-path beaches up and down the Costa Calida and Costa Blanca, then a car is certainly the best option. It might be worth searching for a Torrevieja District villa rental with a parking space provided, though – finding room for the auto between June and August can be especially tricky.

Food & drink 

Tasting the foods of Torrevieja

Stacks of gleaming Spanish tomatoes, mouthwatering Valencian oranges, spiky pineapples and Iberian olives all combine to create a real foodie Mecca at the Torrevieja Friday market. It's the perfect place to seek out the fabled fresh produce of the Mediterranean, especially if you've bagged yourself a Torrevieja District holiday cottage with a self-catering kitchen. Of course, you don't have to do all the cooking. Tapas joints and seafood restaurants pepper the whole city, churning out platters of patatas bravas and deep-fried calamari, garlic mushrooms and salty Spanish hams – be sure to get them to go with that evening aperitif, as the sun sets over Playa del Cura.
