Parque natural de las Lagunas de La Mata y Torrevieja

We use the park on a regular basis and its great for taking the kids to spend a bit of time in nature. Lovely picnic area as well as viewing towers. Plenty of walks and even the odd pony trail.

Guardamar Moncayo Beach

Reviewed By Nicki M - Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

Seems most of Spain gets a little neglected when it's out of season. This beach is lovely, has soft sand, chilled out beach bar hut. However the bins were overflowing, inviting swarms of wasps - everywhere!!
There were no toilets local, with the only one close being a single toilet in a hut on the beach. It was filthy, and that really is putting it politely
The cluster of beach umbrellas may as well have been put on top of one another. Roughly only 5-6ft between them.
However, couldnt complain about parking and we enjoyed a couple of long days here.

Dique de Levante Breakwater

The Dique de Levante, with an extension of 1600 metres, has become a privileged esplanade facing the sea. Its structure combines wood and steel,and at the bottom side it includes a cycleway.The Dique de Levante is one of the most visited places by both tourists and inhabitan.

The raised breakwater boardwalk is longer than you think - you spot the statue at the curve and think that’s it - well actually it’s only half distance! Not sure of the length in total but reckon it must be near a mile. The main walkway is made of railway sleeper type logs but not as thick and a narrow paved path is to one side. Be careful if you walk along the planks without footwear as a number of the fixing screws have worked loose and become slightly raised in places. The statue half way is interesting, sculpted by Carmen Fraile (name’s on the plinth!) and alongside is a water Fountain. Walking along you get views over the marina and also the submarine museum moored up at the jetty across wasteland. A boat rental/water ski area is at the end of the marina and no doubt interesting to watch the goings on in summer (it was closed when I was there mid November). Fishermen gather along rocks around the lighthouse and a number of cats hang around the bench area and stairs nearby - looking over the railing I noticed a couple of small huts and food bowls so they’re obviously well fed and looked after - when I sat down one insisted on trying to snooze on my lap! If it’s a hot day you can walk along the bottom road which is in the shade.
A pleasant walk, nice views and good for exercise!

Aqua Park Ciudad Quesada

Reviewed By Martin B - Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Great little park, not to expensive really unless you keep buying icecreams for the kids!! good rides, good fun.. very very busy when we went and struggled to get anywhere to sit down so spent most of the time relaxing in Queues for the rides!! but what do you expect in August in Spain.. A good day out and a welcome change from beach and pool

La Taberna Ciudad Quesada

Reviewed By Billfr0mSc0tland - Bishopton, United Kingdom

This bar isn't on main street Quesada but is none the worse for it. It is unusually decorated, has a very good atmosphere, is generally busy and has regular entertainment. The staff are friendly, very helpful, and pretty efficient the prices are ok , not cheap but not too expensive. The measures are pretty good however. I didn't see food served but there is a great tapas door next door if you are hungry . I like this place try it I think you'll like it too.

Mercadillo de La Mata

Reviewed By LaMata-Matt - La Mata, Spain

If you love olives and lots of other locally produced foods your in the right place. Also recommend getting the cooked chicken as its very tasty. The leather bags are also very good. Safety point is make sure you secure your wallet. Parking wise better to park at pinomar and walk down as parking is a problem.

Reina Sofia Park

Reviewed By Wonder_n_Wander - London, United Kingdom

It's a little smaller than expected, but I enjoyed the little walk around. Lots of anI'm also including turtles, peacocks and ducks. It's nicely kept and would make for a sweet picnic spot. Lots of shade from the trees so a nice change from the beach in the summer, easy to get to and centralised so it's only a few feet from a cafe or road to the beach or town centre.

Glorious sandy beach with gently lapping waves and a clean and refreshing sea. Well worth a saunter along with temperatures of 22C in January! Gorgeous!

Parque Alfonso XIII

Reviewed By Steve T - Lytham St Anne's, United Kingdom

For me a bit of a boring park and judging by the number of visitors I saw I’m not the only one who thinks this. There were few people about. Notice boards were not overly informative and largely vandalised. Direction signs were rare …. Though they were often needed.
The park areas need a good deal of work to smarten them up – at the very least they require a good deal of TLC – if they want to be an attraction then they need a LOT of work. You almost need at least a handful of long term vocationally committed individuals and for a long time if genuine progress is ever going to be likely. The likelihood of this, however, seems unlikely.

Parque de Las Naciones

Reviewed By Sakari M - Torrevieja, Spain

One of the most interesting Parks in Torrevieja , having a central location and
especially with kids, a lot to see.
There are many kinds of birds, cocks,geese walking freely in the area and with
fountains, ponds and benches to sit down and watch all this.
If you have a moment to spare while you are visiting Torrevieja, surely this is
a great way to use half an hour.
