Torrevieja is in the Province of Alicante in the south of the Comunidad of Valencia. It extends to 72 square kilometres and has a population of 100,000 in low season, rising to around 500,000 in the months of July and August. The area boasts over 300 sunny days and only 30 days of rain in the year, with an average temperature of 18 degrees centigrade during the winter.

The whole of the Valencian coastline is under the watchful eye of the EEC. There are quality levels for the cleanliness of coastal waters and of the beaches and the amenities which they provide. Nearly every beach in Torrevieja has been awarded the top accolade – the Blue Flag.

The Nature Park of La Mata Lagoon and the Torrevieja Lagoon are protected nature areas and are included in the list of the most humid zones in Europe. The Casino building on Paseo Vistalegre in front of the harbour dates from the 19th century and is currently used both as a café and for many cultural activities.

The church was built in 1844 on the foundations of the previous temple which dated back to 1788. Built of brick and stone, the stone used was taken from the old look-out tower and transported to the town by labourers employed in the saltworks. The centrepiece, originally set in the original church in 1791, is the image of the Immaculate Conception, the patron saint of Torrevieja.

In the general area South of Torrevieja is La Manga: which is probably the best known resort in the area, the prestigious La Manga Club is located here and boasts a five star hotel, casino, world class sports facilities with 3 championship golf courses, tennis and professional football centres.

The Mar Menor (small sea) is the largest salt lake in Europe and the water's healing powers are well known. With a maximum depth of only 8m and temperatures higher than average, the area is renowned for its water sports and has 13 scuba schools and 19 international standard sailing schools.

FESTIVALS

There are fiestas in Torrevieja almost every month throughout the year. The town's own fiesta is based on the Habaneras, which are traditional songs originating from Cuba as a consequence of the salt trade. The first of the Habaneras was celebrated in 1955 and is today an annual international event, celebrated in the enclosure of the Eras de la Sal, normally during the first week of August. The Easter street procession of Semana Santa is a riot of colour where the fraternities parade in their robes and matching hoods. At the beginning of May, a mini-town of casetas is laid out near the harbour and there are competitions, traditional Sevillian dancing, and dressage events. Music, wine tasting and general celebrations are the order of the day (and night).

Torrevieja town centre offers a considerable range of shops, from the '1 Euro' shops to quality designer clothing shops and banks.

Torrevieja Area

The Costa Blanca literally translates as the white coast, and is so named because of its wonderful pale sandy beaches and rocky coves which stretch for more than 200 kilometres. The coastline boasts 48 EU blue flags, the award given to Europe's beaches for cleanliness, safety and service. There are a variety of water sports available, such as surfing, diving, water skiing, sailing, fishing, ski-parachuting or jet skis. Boats can usually be hired through local harbours and there are also organised trips for those who want to see a bit of the coastline from the sea.

Torrevieja is a popular holiday spot and offers the superb facilities of the two main beaches, Los Locos and El Cura. Los Locos is situated to the North of the town centre and is 780 metres long with fine sand on rocks. The town centre can be reached along a promenade connecting with many other beaches including El Cura.

From Torrevieja, travel South along the coast and take your pick from the wonderful beaches at Punta Prima, Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cabo Roig, Campoamor and Mil Palmeras. These all offer good facilities including sunbeds and parasols for hire, First Aid posts, toilets and snack bars.

During the busier months, lifeguards are on duty at the beaches to make sure that no accidents occur and bathers should always take notice of the flags showing how safe bathing is for that particular day. RED means swimming is not allowed as the conditions are too dangerous, YELLOW indicates that certain precautions and care should be taken and GREEN shows the water is safe.

Most of the Costas' beaches shelve gradually into the sea, offering safe bathing for all the family, but children should never be left unattended or allowed out of their depth with lilos or airbeds.
