Not many towns can say they began as a guard tower, but that is the origin of Torrevieja, which means “old tower.” Just a stone guard tower stood on the site of what is now the city until 1803. At that time, since the town is between two salt lakes, they opened some salt production offices, and the tiny settlement was becoming a town.
Modern Torrevieja has an open, sea-breeze feel. It is full of water fountains and airy train stations and markets, allowing you to feel the sea air just about any time. Dwellers of long-term rentals, which are currently for sale in Torrevieja, frequent the gorgeous beaches, such as Playa del Cura, Playa de los Locos, Playa de los Naufragos, Playa de La Mata. Of these beaches, probably the most noteworthy is the Playa del Cura, a busy beach in the center of the city, hopping with food stalls, ice cream stands and other activities for beach combers.
One trait of all the beaches in Torrevieja is the little coves that provide for quiet contemplation and a bit of privacy. Another amenity of the downtown area is the amazing Teatro Auditorio (Local Theatre), a stunning cube of a building tilted at a spectacular angle. The building, created by Alejandro Zaera Polo and Antonio Marquerie Tamayo. It is located in Miguel Hernandez Square. It’s not only a great place to take in a play, but also a great structure adding to the towns character.
People don´t only go frequently to the theatre, but also to the Music Hall, Palacio De La Musica. This building is, like the theatre, unique and inviting, made up of a lovely, mirror-paneled cylinder attached to the main structure.
The Cost Blanca area of Spain is home to many great water parks, and Torrevieja’s is the Aquopolis, home to many water slides and shimmering blue pools. Tourists and residents alike enjoy a variety of excellent restaurants. The Restaurante El Pescador (fish restaurant) is one of the best. Yes, you can dine on amazing fish there, and they also offer amazing paella and black rice—all up and down the Costa Blanca, you’ll find amazing grains that serve either as side-dishes or as satisfying entrees.
At Rincon de Capis, fine diners will encounter wagyu beef and foie gras along with that day’s fresh catches from the sea. El Tintero is located at Playa del Cura, standing on a pier right on the water’s edge. It’s been there from 1953 and specializes in—of course—seafood.
If you’re looking for nightclubs, you can’t miss out on Jaima Del Puerto, an amazing club at which you can sip your libations on a canopied bed! Not far behind is the Queen Mississippi, the improbably named club that also serves Mediterranean cuisine. It competes nicely with Jaima by offering sumptuous sofas and lounge areas, which they like to call the Chill Out Zone.
