Torrevieja is a city that enjoys life in the open air, that always looks at the sea, that feels the tradition, but is modern and open to everyone who wants to live the Mediterranean lifestyle. The city has an exceptional climate, influenced by the proximity of the sea and its location within the Iberian Peninsula. This fact results in an average temperature of 18ºC and more than 300 days of sunshine a year.
The first thing that strikes you about Torrevieja is its surroundings, with two salt lakes, one pink and the other green, which make up the Parque Natural de las Lagunas de La Mata y Torrevieja.
But to speak of this city is to speak fundamentally of two things: sea and salt. Salt is the true origin of this town. Until the middle of the 20th century the salt industry was the main source of employment for the people of Torrevieja, and today Torrevieja is one of the main producers of salt in Spain, with an average of 600,000 tonnes per year.
The coastline of Torrevieja is very extensive, with a total of 14 km of beautiful seafront where you can find a multitude of urban beaches, coves and secluded spots where you can cool off, many of them idyllic.All of Torrevieja´s beaches are certified by quality and environmental management standards. Torrevieja reaffirms itself as a symbol of prestige and quality.
Different traditional festivals are celebrated throughout the year in the city, such as Semana Santa or the seafaring procession of the Virgen del Carmen on July 16th.
The “Feria de Mayo” also enjoys great popularity among its inhabitants and visitors, with its typical pavilions, its wines, its gastronomy and its musical shows. Torrevieja perfectly combines fun and culture in equal parts.
