4 Stunning Views in The Torrevieja Area

8th January 2018

For some of us the perfect view is from a restaurant table across a glittering marina, with a cold beer in our hand. For others, the perfect view takes in wilderness and nature. Others still prefer cityscapes, historic architecture, mountains, oceans – we’re all different.

However, when we do catch a glimpse of a beautiful view, we can almost all agree that we’re witnessing something pretty special. Torrevieja and the surrounding Costa Blanca area is home to all sorts of beautiful views, sure to impress visitors of all tastes. To help you enjoy some of the region’s most scenic spots, we’ve collected some of our favourite Torrevieja views, and some stunning sights from the local area.

1) The Crow’s Nest, Torrevieja

If your favourite kind of view involves kicking back, enjoying food, drink and good company while watching the sun set (or shimmer) over a sparkling marina, a meal at The Crow’s Nest in Torrevieja is a good choice. There are lots of restaurants and bars overlooking Torrevieja’s charming marina, where you can people- and boat-watch to your heart’s content. The Crow’s Nest (as the name implies) boasts a particularly good perch, offering year-round views over the water.

2) A Cartagena Boat Trip

The ancient city of Cartagena is a pretty incredible sight from many angles, but one of the finest ways to really drink in the architecture and spirit of this place is to take a boat trip around the harbour. From here you’ll be able to see the city line and the two historic fortresses which guard the entrance – a great view for lovers of history and architecture. Cartagena is just under two hours from Torrevieja via a very affordable bus service.

3) Las Salinas de Torrevieja

If you like views which are a little out of the ordinary, you’ll love the landscape of Las Salinas de Torrevieja. These amazing salt lakes are a quiet and relaxing spot very close to the town itself. A haven for local wildlife, the main attraction is the stunning pink-coloured lagoon which lies right next to a striking green lake. The contrast makes for brilliant views (and photographs!). The location even boasts flamingos which visit during the breeding season. The pink colour of Torrevieja’s lagoon comes from the pigment of the native Halobacterium bacteria which thrives in salty habitats.

4) Sierra de Crevillente

Love a soaring view from a mountain top? To see the region spread out beneath you, make a beeline from the weather station atop the Sierra de Crevillente mountain range, around an hour’s twisting-and-turning drive northwest of Torrevieja. On a clear day you can see for miles across the surrounding area. Be warned though, this is not an easy spot to find. You might want to ask for some local directions – and take a 4×4! If you don’t have access to this kind of vehicle, there are some fantastic walking trails which offer amazing views in this mountain range, if you’re feeling energetic.

“After visiting Torrevieja two or three times a year in various apartments in the last six years we have at last hit the jackpot. We have just returned from a two-week stay at the OrbiPlaya apartments. The apartment was spotlessly clean, modern, well equipped in an enviable position close to local shops, bars and restaurants and even for an old man like me, a pleasant 10-minute stroll to the main promenade. The lasting memory of this holiday is sitting on the balcony having breakfast watching the sun rise over the Med, truly stunning. An added bonus is your property managers who are there to ensure nothing spoils your holiday. We would not hesitate to recommend this holiday to anyone and enjoyed it so much we have already booked another two weeks in October and are looking at dates for 2012.”
