This is probably the largest coastal town nearby - it's about 15 minutes by car from Ciudad Quesada.  Enjoy a stroll along the lovely palm lined promenade or go down to the port to have a look at some of the fantastic boats moored here.  The port area itself is great for evening drinks with some very flashy cocktail bars and seating areas.

There is no shortage of places to eat with an excellent choice to suit all tastes.  Locally caught seafood is a speciality.  This is a great place to sit with a drink and watch the world go by.  Torrevieja also has a night market and one can pick up some lovely jewellery or pottery all made by local artists.  If you fancy a boat trip, there is lots to choose from; if you are interested in diving or fishing, this is the place to book a trip.
