Torrevieja's biggest attraction is without doubt its seafront. The promenade, the marina, the fine, sandy beaches and numerous rocky coves provide something for everyone the sports enthusiast, the sun worshipper, the people watcher and the nature lover.

Whether you're seeking nature and tranquility or fun and action you'll find it among Torrevieja's beaches, esplanades, parks, gardens and salt lakes.

The resort's sandy beaches are among the most popular of the entire Spanish coast. They consistently win the European Blue Flag for cleanliness and provide excellent services and facilities. With around 340 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of 20 degrees, the beach is the place to be!

There are five main beaches in Torrevieja. At the northern end of the resort is the popular La Mata beach which offers fine sand and a full range of facilities foot showers, volleyball nets, water sports etc.

La Mata is linked to Salaret point by a series of small, rocky coves (try to fit in a visit to the marvellous coves of El Mojón and Zorras) which in turn lead to two of the most popular and lively beaches Locos and Cura, both of which have fine sand, calm waters, a full range of facilities and the benefit of a bustling seafront promenade.

To the south of the town you'll find another popular beach, Los Naufragos.

For walkers and lovers of nature Torrevieja offers stunning cliff walks, many natural beauty spots and of course the two huge natural salt water lakes, teeming with bird life.

The salt water lakes absorb water from the atmosphere and create a special microclimate which is widely regarded to be beneficial for sufferers of rheumatism, asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory problems. There are mud baths and various health treatments available locally and you don't have to be unwell to benefit from them!

The port area is home to a splendid modern marina where you'll find two diving centres, a sailing school and two boat charter companies operate. There's also a small beach between the marina and the salt wharf.

A full range of watersports are on offer including windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling, water skiing, fishing and scuba diving.
