Only a short 50 minute drive from Alicante Airport and even closer to Murcia Airport, it’s easily accessible.
If you want pristine beaches where you can soak up the sunshine, then Torrevieja has plenty to offer. A visit to Playa del Cura or Playa del Acequion should get you started. If you want to drive a little further away, La Mata has a rather special beach too.
La Mata is also home to some wondrous Roman Docks where you should take a stroll. If you happen to visit on market day, you may also be in for some bargain hunting too.
You must visit the salt plains in Torrevieja. Unusually, they are pink in colour and packed full of bird life. Some people bathe in the lakes but if you don’t fancy that then there is a museum dedicated to the area instead.
