Torrevieja lies about 50 kilometres south of the city of Alicante. 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 healthy microclimate.
Discover the salt produced in the Natural Park of the Lagoons of La Mata and Torrevieja on this singular scene: The amazing Pink Lake. This protected area has a total surface of 3.700 hectares of which 2.100 hectares are water, 1.400 hectares in the lagoon of Torrevieja and 700 Ha. of La Mata.
The salt lake of Torrevieja is the first salt producer in Europe and the only one that uses floating machines for the salt extraction.
Torrevieja offers a wide selection of beaches and shopping opportunities. The varied and full range of shops in the town centre is without doubt the best on the south side of the Province of Alicante.
The town centre offers the most popular retailers but with one fundamental difference with regard to the rest: the service and quality as well as its impeccable pedestrian streets.
