Sunshine, sunbathing and tapas are all very well – but sometimes a holiday needs a dash of adventure to make it really memorable. If you’re loving the sand, sea and sun in Torrevieja, but fancy trying something a little more active to spice up your stay, you’re in luck. There are all sorts of exciting activities for you to try right on your doorstep.

Whether you like your adventure sports and activities to make a splash, or prefer something on dry land which gives you a real thrill, we’ve rounded up some of the best activities near Torrevieja for adventurous sorts…

1. Take to the skies on a parasail

Love an ocean view? Why not enjoy the Costa Blanca coastline from an entirely new perspective? Parasailing in Torrevieja will give you the chance to soar over the area attached to a parachute, connected to a speeding boat. Available for youngsters as well as adults, parasailing has to be one to write home about. You can even fit as many as five people to a parasail at one time. This company provides parasailing in Torrevieja.

2. Go off-road on a quad bike

Fancy going off-road to explore this scenic region? Embalse de la Pedrera is a stunning blue reservoir a stone’s throw from Torrevieja where you can take a range of quad bike tours ranging from easy rides suitable for youngsters, to much more challenging drives for more adventurous visitors. You can even arrange to have a mid-way barbecue by the glittering lake.

3. Make a splash with a jetboard

360 degree spins, super high speeds and plenty of adrenaline – there are plenty of thrills to be had in Torrevieja’s marina, particularly if you book a session in a jet boat. You can even arrange a session on a jetboard, a sort of aquatic skateboard which will shoot you metres into the air above the water, and help you hover there just like Marty McFly.

4. Explore the coast on jet skis

Prefer experiences you can take at your own pace? Jet ski rental might be the best option for you. Book jet skis in Torrevieja and take to the seas on your very own tour (after a little bit of essential training). You can rent jet skis for around two hours, so you can see lots of the coast and have plenty of fun on the water.

5. Fly over the treetops on a zip-wire

Prefer the air to the water? No problem! The Lo Rufete Adventure Park is very close to Torrevieja and boasts tons of brilliant adventurous activities you can try – including ziplining (not to mention horse riding, archery and paintball)! The park’s zipline is over 150 metres long, so you can feel as if you’re soaring high above the treetops in this scenic local spot.

“The holiday was really, really great!!! We all had an absolutely fab time. The apartment was very clean and immaculate when we arrived. Thank you for a lovely time!”

“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.”
