The Torrevieja area guide
Things to do
A coastal city along the Costa Blanca, Torrevieja dates back to the 18th century. What was once a humble fishing village is now one of Spains fastest growing cities, particularly in the summer months when throngs of tourists flock to its sunny beaches and ice cream parlours. Due to its popularity with English-speaking expats, there are several English-language newspapers, radio stations and a single TV station.
The name Torrevieja means old tower, with the name coming from the watchtowers used by fishermen along the shore. In addition to fishing, salt mining is a major industry that still plays a role in Torreviejas economy. The city is positioned between two salt lakes, one tinted pink and one emerald-green.
Naturally, Torreviejas attractive beaches are one of its main draws. Its set along 20 km of coastline and includes six large beaches in the area. The main city beach is Playa del Cura, but you can also hop aboard a local bus to access Cabo Cervera, Los Locos, Los Naufragos, Ferris, and La Mata. Its two salt lakes are also intriguing natural resources, particularly the pink-tinted Laguna Salada de Torrevieja.
Learn more about Torreviejas salt mining history by visiting the Museum of Sea and Salt, or about the citys nautical history at the Floating Museums, which include a submarine and an old customs boat. Visit Torre del Moro, one of the citys old watchtowers, to enjoy extensive panoramic views, or take in a typical flamenco and Spanish horse show at the Vila Rada riding centre. Theres no shortage of water sports to take part in as well, from jet-skiing to sailing, its all possible here.
Places to eat
Playa del Cura is Torreviejas most popular beach, being the easiest to get to within the citys main urban area. As a result, there are plenty of bustling eateries in the area, where you can sample freshly caught seafood or relax with a refreshing cocktail. One of the top choices is El Tintero, at the south end of the beach. Its built up above the water, offering seaside views along with steaming dishes of paella.
Many restaurants reflect Torreviejas increasingly international atmosphere in their menus, including Mundo Pequeño on Calle Marcelina. It offers varied dishes from all over the world, although traditional tapas are also always an option.
There are an estimated 2,500 shops in Torrevieja, which means that you can find just about anything your heart desires in its sleek shopping malls, such as Habaneras, or in the traditional markets along the pedestrian walkways. Shops are generally open between the hours of 10 AM and 10 PM from Monday to Saturday.
Those who wish to get away from the main High Street brand names can visit Torreviejas famous street market, held each Friday in the city centre. It boasts over 1200 stalls, making it one of Europes largest. If you want to get the best bargains on crafts, designs, clothing, and produce, be sure to show up early before its packed with visitors.
