Just outside Torrevieja
The small beach of La Mata is just outside Torrevieja to the north. It’s found in a small town called La Mata and nowadays it’s one of the top winter destinations for Europeans. The services are now unlimited thanks to a huge rise in tourism in recent years.
It’s only a few kilometers long on both sides of the pretty, well-preserved town. Before, you could arrive in car from Torrevieja, but now you can only arrive by walking along the beach or on the raised wooden walkway.
On the side of the beach, you’ll find a large natural park which houses a variety of bird species. On the other side, you’ll find the small La Mata pier with a lookout tower from the 14th century, a relic from the age of invasions and a typical sight throughout the Mediterranean.
