Torrevieja is situated about 40 minutes south of the airport of Alicante on the Costa Blanca.
This is not a holiday resort in the sense of packed holidays, only a few hotels are located in the region and Spaniards love it very much. The city is surrounded by fine sand and crystal clear water with fantastic beaches.
Thousands of people have permanently settled down in the city from north Spain and northern Europe. The locals are both national and international tourism-friendly and welcome. There's a lot of conversation in English.
In the northern part, there are marvellous bays as well as the salt ponds.
