CH ORIENTE TORREVIEJA FEATURES
– COMING SOON
Torrevieja is situated on the Costa Blanca, approximately 45 minutes south of Alicante airport. The name Torrevieja comes from the small tower that used to look down over the harbour.
It isn’t a resort in the package holiday sense, there are only a few hotels and the area is much loved by the Spanish who flock here during the summer months for their holidays. The town is surrounded by excellent urbanisations, all with pools and beautiful gardens and the whole area enjoys fabulous beaches with fine sand and crystal clear waters.
Torrevieja was more or less completely destroyed by an earthquake in 1829.
Torrevieja is voted by WHO (World Health Organisation) as on of the top 10 healthiest places in the world to live, this is due to the properties of the salt lakes.
These salt flats from around the 13th Century cover an area of over two thousand hectars. There are two lagoons, La Mata and Torrevieja, these are set two metres above sea level and are joined together by a channel built in 1928. La Mata (the smaller one) is the heater where the sun does its work and the lake in Torrevieja is the concentrator, where the salt is extracted, this lake can extract around five hundred tons of salt per hour. Production tends to take place when Torrevieja starts to heat up in June and ends in October the salt is collected and deposited into large salt mountains.
A good way to explore Torrevieja and it’s surroundings is by using the public transport. There are a good number of urban and interurban lines.
From the different bus stops you can reach Orihuela Costa, San Miguel de las Salinas, Los Montesinos, Rojales, Ciudad Quesada, Almoradí, Guardamar del Segura and Pilar de la Horadada, as well as Alicante and Murcia.
This will allow you not only to travel between the urbanizations and the city or from the commercial center of the city of Torrevieja, but also to move further and enjoy other shopping centers, a different beach, …

A historical landmark from the 14th century used in its day to defend the Mediterranean coast from pirate attacks. It is located in Cabo Cervera, one of the highest points of Torrevieja. Precisely one of the most popular areas for holiday accommodation in Torrevieja.
Torre de la Mata
Like the Torre del Moro, the origin of this tower dates back to the 14th century. In front of the tower, there was a jetty in which salt from the lagoon of La Mata was loaded.
It is worth visiting some of the rocky coves of Torrevieja simply for the views. One of the best known is the Cala Ferrís, located to the south of the town centre and surrounded by numerous palm trees.
This is a day trip from Torrevieja that you can only make by boat and only from May to October. The island of Tabarca is all of 2 km long and 400 m wide but has a colourful history of pirates and Genoese settlers, documented by fortified walls, churches and a lighthouse.
Forming part of a protected Nature and Maritime Reserve, the small beaches are inviting to snorkel in crystal clear water. Walk the streets of the village, enjoy typical food in one of the small restaurants and have fun on the 40-minute glass bottom Catamaran ride from the Marina in Torrevieja, watching maritime life.
