Torrevieja is a beautiful port city on the Costa Blanca in the Alicante province. The city is best known for its special Mediterranean climate and fascinating flora and fauna.
The former fishing village of Torrevieja, named after an old watchtower, is now a multicultural city that is so special due to its many different influences. More than half of the population come from different regions of the world, including many British, Germans and Scandinavians.


Just a few kilometers from Torrevieja, a very special natural spectacle attracts visitors from all over the world. There are two large salt lagoons in the almost 4,000 hectares of La Mata and Torrevieja National Parks – the special feature: One of the lagoons shines in bright blue-green, the other in pink. A type of bacteria that only survives in extremely salty environments has settled here and gives the lake its unusual color. Due to the high salt content, you can admire an unusual, highly interesting flora, which mainly consists of evergreen grasses, bushes and reeds. This also creates the special and healthy climate of Torrevieja.
Another highlight are the flamingos that strut colorfully through the parks. In addition, walkers can marvel at over 100 species of birds such as ospreys, terns and stilts. But exotic geckos, snakes and foxes also have their habitat here.


The longest and most beautiful beach in Torrevieja is in “La Mata”. A wonderful kilometer-long fine sandy beach that leads from the beach promenade to beautiful small sand dunes. The palm trees, the soft sand and the view of the inviting, clear sea create the right holiday feeling.
Other recommended beaches:
The sandy beach itself is located at the southern end of Torrevieja, right next to the port. You will find many young people here and volleyball games are particularly popular on the beach.
The city beach of Playa de Cura is densely packed with multi-storey holiday apartments, a long beach promenade, many restaurants and cafes. Due to its central location in the city, the beach is well attended all year round.
Playa de los Locos beach is located in the north of the city. To the north it borders on the cliff wall that stretches up towards Playa de La Mata.
The sandy beach Playa de Acequion is located in the middle of the port of Torrevieja. The beach is completely protected from any dangers that might lurk in the sea. There are no currents or waves. The numerous restaurants and ice cream stalls lined up at regular intervals along the beach are also very convenient.
In addition to beautiful sandy beaches, Torrevieja also offers large cliffs. In certain places you can jump cliffs and snorkel particularly well.


Those interested in history will find worthwhile excursion destinations in the Parroquia de la Inmaculada Concepción or the Museum del Mar y de la Sal, which tells the origins of the city. The Submarino S-61 Dolphin floating submarine museum, the Museum de Historia Natural, in which the skeletons of marine animals are exhibited, and the Ricardo La Fuente literature museum also promise an exciting visit.


If you like to party on your vacation and are looking for new contacts, then you will really like the nightlife in Torrevieja. After the siesta, dinner starts at 8 a.m. and the beach bars on the promenade can be visited from 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. to get in the mood for the night. The marina with its lounge bars and small cafés is the first port of call. People like to toast friendship or sit together in front of the door. If you want to get on the dance floor, you can go a few meters further to the end of the city center and visit the biggest clubs and discos like El Parking and Velice. Young and old can dance here, inside or outside. Velice has often many live concerts from famous artists and Djs like Karol G, Juan Magan, Jhay Cortez, Angelo Ospina, Danny Mad and many more! But here, too, the clocks work a little differently, the big discos usually don’t get really full until 3:00 a.m.
