HISTORY

Salinas de TorreviejaTorrevieja is located on the Costa Blanca, near the lagoons of La Mata and Torrevieja, in the region of Vega Baja del Segura, in the province of Alicante. The city has its roots in the exploitation of the salt generated in the Torrevieja lagoon, which began in 1803 under the administration of the Royal Saltworks. The salt trade with various ports in the Caribbean has been an integral part of the city's history. In fact, the name "Torrevieja" comes from the old watchtower located in the Eras de la Sal, which used to be a jetty for salt. Fishermen from different parts of the world have also used the Torrevieja coastline as a refuge on bad weather days. Today, the salt flats of Torrevieja are the most important in Europe for their high productivity.

TORREVIEJA COASTLINE

TorreviejaThe first thing that catches the attention of Torrevieja if we see an aerial photograph is its environment, where two saltwater lagoons stand out: one pink and one green. These lagoons are part of the Natural Park of the Lagunas de la Mata and Torrevieja, recognized nationally and internationally for its enormous biological richness.

Torrevieja has 14 km of coastline that offer a great variety of beaches, coves and corners to enjoy and refresh. From north to south, the Playa de la Mata stands out, the most extensive of all, with almost 2 km in length and a dune system characterized by the abundance of fossil dunes. If you are looking for a spacious and quiet beach, La Mata is an excellent option. A little further south, we find Cabo Cervera, where the Playa de Cabo Cervera and an old watchtower called the Torre del Moro are located, from which you can admire impressive panoramic views of the sea.

Following the coast, we find many coves ideal for diving or simply enjoying a swim, many of them suitable for bathing. South of the coves, we find Punta del Salaret, which shelters the Playa de los Locos, whose name comes from the old sanatorium that was located there. In addition, on the coast of Torrevieja, it is essential to make a mandatory stop at any kiosk to taste the famous Torrevejense dried octopus.

Continuing along the coast, we come to the Palangre curve and Punta Margalla, where the Monument to the Cultures of the Mediterranean is located, also known as the Columns, a privileged space facing the sea. Finally, we arrive at the heart of Torrevieja where its magnificent promenade is located. This begins at Playa del Cura and runs through the natural pools until it reaches the Real Club Náutico de Torrevieja and the Marina Internacional marina. It is a perfect place to stroll, enjoy the sea views, and relax in the numerous terraces and restaurants that we find along the way.

Following the coastline, we will reach the Acequión area, which offers stunning views of the port. Here we will find many beach bars and restaurants facing the sea to enjoy a good meal. Upon leaving Acequión, we will come across Playa de los Náufragos, which owes its name to the shipwrecks that used to occur near the coast. Many of these ships transported tiles to the Caribbean for trade, and it is still possible to find remains of tiles in nearby seabeds.

Continuing along the coast, we will arrive at La Veleta, Mar Azul, and the protected area of Cala Ferris, a true paradise that will make you feel like you are in the Caribbean. Finally, we will arrive at the opposite end of the city, in Punta Prima, where the boundary between Torrevieja and Orihuela Costa is located.

Cala Ferris

The coast of Torrevieja is a true paradise for lovers of water sports and marine life. Its crystal clear waters and rich biodiversity make it an ideal place for practicing underwater fishing, snorkeling, and other water sports such as paddle surfing or kayaking.

In addition, the seabeds of Torrevieja are a natural wonder that you cannot miss. The vast extensions of posidonia and its marine richness make diving in its waters a unique and unforgettable experience. If you are passionate about marine fauna and flora, do not hesitate to visit this spectacular place.

But not only the beauty of its beaches and its wonderful biodiversity are reasons to visit Torrevieja. Its beaches also have ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, guaranteeing their quality and environmental management. This means that you can enjoy clean, safe, and environmentally friendly beaches.

Torrevieja is a perfect destination for those who seek to enjoy nature, practice water sports, and disconnect from daily stress. In addition, its commitment to quality and the environment makes it a responsible and sustainable tourist destination.

 

CULTURE

Torrevieja boasts a nationally and internationally renowned cultural offering and infrastructure.

Auditorio Conservatorio

The Auditorio-Conservatorio has become the most important cultural infrastructure in the entire city, inspired by the Berlin Philharmonic and considered the most complete and modern stage in the Valencian Community. In addition, it hosts numerous cultural events throughout the year.

Among them, the International Habaneras and Polyphony Contest stands out, an event of great importance in the city that has been declared of International Tourist Interest. This contest focuses on the singing of habaneras, a music of Caribbean origin that arrived in Torrevieja thanks to the trips of local sailors to those lands.

FLOATING MUSEUMS

In Torrevieja, several floating museums can be found, which stand out for their uniqueness. Among them is the S-61 Delfín Submarine, which became the first ship of the Spanish Navy to be established as a floating museum. It is also worth noting that in 1971, Torrevieja presented it with the combat flag.

Another noteworthy floating museum is the Albatros III Customs Surveillance Patrol Boat, which belonged to the customs surveillance service until March 23, 2006, when it was received by Torrevieja and became its second floating museum. The entrance fee includes a guided tour, which makes the experience even more enriching.

GASTRONOMY

Gastronomia torrevejenseThe cuisine of Torrevieja is characterized by its richness and variety of products, both from the sea and from the Bajo Segura orchard. Rice dishes are the star of our gastronomy, with numerous varieties such as rice with vegetables and greens, rice with anchovies, tuna, "a banda", seafood, among others. However, the most emblematic rice dish of Torrevieja is "caldero", made with rock fish broth.

Fish is the basis of Torrevieja's gastronomy, and there are many recipes to satisfy seafood lovers, such as mero gazpacho, fried gato with tomato, grilled sardines, squid, octopus, fried small fish, anchovies, among others. In addition, one of Torrevieja's main appetizers is "Pulpo seco", which consists of sun-dried octopus that is boiled at high heat and seasoned with olive oil and lemon.

The cuisine of Torrevieja can be tasted in any of the bars and restaurants along the Torrevieja coastline, always influenced by the cuisine of the Vega Baja, where a large variety of meats and stews can be found, such as "cocido con pelotas", rabbit gazpacho, snail stew, among others. In short, it is a distinct and quality cuisine that will not leave you indifferent.
