This apartment has a personal touch as my family and I have been using a holiday apartment for the last 20 years.
The apartment is part of a private residential complex with an atmosphere of young families and couples, all very friendly, holiday makers and some locals who make you feel very welcome.
Although there is plenty of life outside the complex such as bars, restaurants and shops, is not surrounded by night clubs therefore it is very tranquile area, but within easy reach of places to go for ice cream, drinks or food.
40 minutes drive from Alicante Airport. Single trip by taxi is 50 Euros approx. (Price as August 2017)
Torrevieja Centre is 15 minutes by car. There is a bus every 20 minutes from/to Torrevieja. The nearest bus stop is within 3 minutes walking distance which takes you to either Torrevieja centre or the village La Mata. I believe the ticket fee is 1,35 Euros per person single trip (price in August 2017).
There are English spoken bars, cafes and restaurants within 2 minutes walk from the apartment. International and Spanish restaurants are all in the same area.
There is a selection of supermarkets within walking distance (3 minutes nearest supermarket) and bigger supermarkets within 10 minutes walking distance. Mercadona supermarket is only 10 minutes from the apartment and offers delivery service for a very small reasonable fee.
In the complex, there is an English Spoken pharmacy which I found they are always very helpful and provide with great advice if you have any problems.
Within 5 minutes max walk from the apartment there is a selection of bars and restaurants such as the Irish Bar, very popular with great beer and food. Magani Café is lovely place to sit outside with a drink, coffee or ice cream, and of course all the restaurants with different menus, such as Indian, Spanish, English and other cuisines.
The Deutch Bank is just before the bars with a cash point.
TORRE DEL MORO
10 minutes walk from the apartment, pass the restaurant and bars there is a small tower, Torre del Moro. This is a historic site and used now as tourist information. There are fantastic views of the sea from here. The tower was used to see the invader ships approaching by sea.
THE BEACH -LA MATA
The beautiful long sandy beach (La Mata) is within 5 -10 minutes walking hill (not very steep) distance.
La Mata beach is the longest sandy beach in Torrevieja with 3km long. While the other two beaches near Torrevieja centre are smaller, they get very busy in peak periods, you will never find this in La Mata. From one end of the beach you will find rocks to explore and take the sun from here, to the other end of the sandy beach which ends in the village La Mata. The Mediterranean sea has transparent water and always very calm. Beautiful!
Go down to the beach at La Mata and walk along the front, at lunch times and in the evenings this area and the surrounding streets are a hive of activity, with many busy cafes, restaurants and bars. These streets also offer many shopping opportunities, plus, the street market is in La Mata every Wednesday morning
This town, which is one of the fastest growing on the Costa Blanca, has the largest street market in Southern Spain, held every Friday. Amenities include a marina, shops, cafes, bistros, restaurants, bars, English cinema and a beautiful church square.
The salt lakes of Torrevieja are the largest in Europe, (second in the world only to the Dead Sea in Israel). The whole area boasts 300 days of sunshine a year, (only 30 days of rain), with average winter temperatures reaching 18C. Festivals, (or fiestas), are also held throughout the area in almost every month of the year. The Mar Menor to the South has a natural lagoon, (with the warmest waters in Spain), so is ideal for watersports.
Costa Blanca benefits from the amazing local produce of salad, vegetables and fruit.
