Torrevieja lies about 50 kilometres south of the city of Alacant. Torrevieja was originally a salt-mining and fishing village as it is located between the sea and two large salt lakes (Las Salinas), which give Torrevieja a healthy microclimate.The Costa Blanca resort of Torrevieja is a dream if you like sun, sea and lots of sand. Five of Torrevieja’s beaches were awarded the Blue Flag in 2016, ranging from cute urban bays buzzing with activity in the summer, to wide open beaches where you can find seclusion even in July. The resort is pinned to the coast by two great salt lagoons that are protected by natural parks.
Once you arrive in Torrevieja by private airport transfer you will find that for the ultimate view of Torrevieja from the sea you can walk along one of the long breakwaters that pushed a long way out into the Mediterranean so far in fact that a round trip from the waterside in the port to the beacon at the end of the Dique de Levante is about two miles.
Spain has lots of scenic paths that follow the course of disused railway tracks and Torrevieja has a great example. It’s a seven-kilometre route that was part of a line that was built at the advent of the local mining industry but shut down in the 1970s.
Now it’s a handy walking and cycling route past the east shore of the Laguna Salada de Torrevieja. You’ll depart from the Old Railway Station and finish at the small town of Los Montesinos.
Once you leave the resort behind you’ll have widescreen views of the lagoon and the countryside on the shore.
