Between each beach there are a number of cliffs (calas) where you can sunbathe and dive in a quiet area. Torrevieja has some extraordinary coral reefs.

La Mata beach

This is Torrevieja’s longest beach. Due to its fine golden sands and very pleasant location (surrounded by La Mata Natural Park) this is a very high quality beach.

Playa de los Locos

It owes its name –the madmen beach- to an old mental hospital which was located in the past next to this beach.

Gold fine sand, low waves and azure water are the characteristics of this beach. To the north it is surrounded by small cliffs that reach up to Cabo Cervera. This beach is adapted for people with poor mobility.

The beach features a playground and the possibility of renting sun loungers and umbrellas. Playa de los Locos has also 4 surveillance towers, 4 lifeguards right on the seafront, a first aid station and 2 health-workers-lifeguards as well as many bars and restaurants.

Paseo Maritimo Juan Aparicio

This stretch of coastline is almost entirely made up of large rocky blocks. Here, however, two artificial beaches have been created. These pieces of artificial beach are almost completely enclosed by concrete quays, allowing you to swim safely without having to bother with waves.


Playa del Acequion

Located at the port, this is a long stretch of beach with fine white sand. On this stretch of beach you will find numerous fishing boats and beach huts. As it’s an urban beach there are high rise apartment buildings standing right next to the sand, and bar and restaurant terraces make beach dining an attractive possibility.

Playa de los Naufragos

Protected by the southern dock of the port, this is one of Torrevieja’s most active and sporty beaches with a wide range of activities. The seawater is very clean and the color of the sand is almost white. The surrounding area is characterized by Torrevieja’s salt lakes and lagoons. Playa de los Naufragos has 3 surveillance towers, 3 lifeguards right on the seafront, a disabled-adapted bathing chair and a first aid station.
