Where is Torrevieja?
Torrevieja is about 50 kilometers south of Alicante airport and is right on the coast just south of the other large resort of Guardamar del Segura.
Murcia Airport (San Javier) at a distance of thirty six kilometres to the south of the resort provides a further gateway for tourists, locals and expats and has a journey time of approximately thirty minutes by car.
Torrevieja is primarily as self catering tourist resort which means that the majority of its visitors have booked villas and apartments as their accommodation for the duration of their stay.
Torrevieja literally translates as Torre Vieja which means the Old Tower, used to be a tiny fishing village (like many of the towns on the Costa Blanca) but it has witnessed a huge explosion in size and population in recent times – most of which is from the huge numbers of people moving to Torrevieja from Northern Europe or buying holiday homes in the area.
Torrevieja is surrounded by the salt lakes of the Laguna Salada de la Mata and the Laguna Salada de Torrevieja and as a result the climate is meant to be very healthy especially for people with arthritus.
The salt lakes are protected and form a natural habitat for numerous protected species of bird such as the greater Flamingo and Montagu’s harrier. The salt is also commercially extracted providing one of the Torrevieja’s main industries.
Torrevieja’s indoor market offers fish, meat and fresh vegetables. Make sure you visit the local market selling fresh fruits and vegetables as well as other locally-made goods and produce – market day in Torrevieja is on a Friday. Torrevieja is also home to the Habaneras Shopping Centre and a 24 hr Carrefour.
