Whether you’re looking for beautiful landscapes, delicious food or unique places, the Region of Valencia has got a whole host of wonderful destinations for you to explore. Places where you can live through your senses. Places where you can immerse yourself in our traditions and customs. And places where you can taste the Mediterranean.
Located in the province of Alicante, Torrevieja is one such place. The pristine waters of the Costa Blanca are one of the main draws of the town, as is its climate, promising sun 365 days a year. On top of that, there are stunning natural landscapes and peaceful beaches, making it one of the best destinations in the whole of the Region of Valencia.
The origins of the town date back to the 19th century, when it had just the torre-vigía, the “old tower”, and a handful of houses. By the end of the century, Torrevieja had started to grow and transform into one of the most sought-after destinations on the Mediterranean coast.
What to do in Torrevieja
There are a wide range of activities on offer at each of Torrevieja’s beaches so you can enjoy the landscapes and the waters of the Mediterranean. If instead you’d prefer to relax and reenergise, playa de los Náufragos, playa de la Mata and cala Ferris are beautiful spots for whiling away the hours in peace and quiet.
La Mata-Torrevieja Natural Park is another thing you should see during your stay in Torrevieja. The park is internationally renowned for its salt mines – the most productive in Europe – and the pink lake, the only of its kind in Spain.
And to top it all off, you simply have to try Torrevieja’s cuisine, digging into dishes bursting with the flavours of the Mediterranean sea and land. Whether you’re staying on the seafront or in the historic centre, enjoy a dreamy couple of days in Torrevieja.
