9. Follow a Scenic Trail alongside Old Railway Tracks
The 7-kilometer Vías Verdes route follows the route of disused railway tracks and was part of a line that was built for the local mining industry, and shut down in the 1970s. Today it has become a walking and cycling route where people can enjoy lovely views and fresh air of the Torrevieja Lagoons and the countryside along the shore.
You can walk or cycle through the route starting from the Old Railway Station, and finish at the town of Los Montesinos.
10. Enjoy the City’s Pristine Beaches
You cannot truly experience the town without a visit to its beautiful beaches—many of which are awarded the Blue Flag each year! The city is, after all, best known for its golden shores and turquoise waters, and people from all over the world visit just to enjoy the city’s coastline.
La Mata Beach, in particular, has a wide and spacious shore, with rolling waves and a number of beach bars. If you want a quieter atmosphere, you can head further north, until you reach a historic 14th-century watchtower on the beach’s northern limit. This tower served as part of Spain’s defences against pirates in the past.
You may never run out of things to do in Torrevieja, a city bustling with life and well-adorned with nature’s wonders. This is what makes the seaside town a true Mediterranean paradise, and a great place to visit often, or even to permanently call home.
