San Miguel de Salinas,Torrevieja to Malaga
I'm planning a 2 week trip to Spain beginning of June.
First week, we're thinking of staying in San Miguel de Salinas, Torrevieja. Does anyone know how good and accessible this area is? What do you recommend to do there? Where is the closest airport and how far is it from San Miguel de Salinas, Torrevieja? What methods of transportation is there to get from the airport to San Miguel de Salinas, Torrevieja? How long for each and how much for each?
We are planning to stay in Marina del Sol, Malaga for the second week. Does anyone know where exactly this is in Malaga? What do you recommend to do there? What is the best way of traveling between San Miguel de Salinas, Torrevieja and Malaga? How many airports are there in Malaga? What is the closest airport to Marine del Sol and how far is it? What is the airport called and where exactly is it located?
We are coming for Toronto, Canada and wondering what is the best and cheap way of getting around: Toronto - San Miguel de Salinas, Torrevieja - Malaga - Toronto. We checked Thomas Cook, but the don't have flights or suitable flights.
RE: San Miguel de Salinas,Torrevieja to Malaga
The nearest airport is San Javier (Murcia) airport which is only small (Military) and set on the coast near La Manga. Here you are only 30 mins drive from San Miguel de Salinas so a taxi could be reasonable if you don't fancy driving in Spain. However driving in Spain is easy and cheap as a small car can be hired easily at the airport from just £10 a day plus fuel but inclusive of collision damage waiver. However flights to San Javier are limited, from the UK Easy Jet and Ryan Air fly regulary. The larger airport serving this region is Alicante approx 50 mins drive from San Miguel. Bus services are possible but few and far between. If you can drive I would definetely reccomend hiring a car to fully enjoy this area.

San Miguel is a lovely peaceful town with lots of good bars and restaurants. It has a good public outdoor swimming pool and sports facilities and is only a 20 min drive to the coast with its miles of lovely safe sandy beaches. In this area of Spain the towns and cities of Murcia, Alicante Orihuela and Cartanega are well worth a vist for their architecture, history, culture and shopping.
Can not comment on Malaga as not travelled down that far. Hope this has been o some help. Have a good trip. Adios Amigos!!

Paseo Maritimo Juan Aparicio
A promenade and a recreation area that serves equally for walking and for sitting out feeling the cool breeze from the sea. From the Levante further ahead, sea walls were built as wavebreakers and small ,shallow swimming pool, as well as a concrete slab beaches and wooden-paved solariums is made. A boardwalk is leading into the sea used for diving and play.
If you are thinking of visiting Torrevieja for a holiday my advice is don't bother, it is a concrete jungle full of apartments. The beaches are man made, small and crowded. The whole town is dirty with pavements full of dog excrement. The restaurants generally are not that great either. If you have a car at least you can get away and visit some very nice little villages and coves nearby such as Cabo Roig, Guardemar and Playa Flamenca.
Torrevieja and surrounding area
Beautiful Spanish Town. More tourists now, but still lovely. Parking is diff but use the novel underground c/p under Piaza. Bathing beaches right in town along the walkway out of main area. Lots of local restaurants and bars. We stay at a village north of town called La Marina. Long sandy beaches deseted out of season except on Saturdays - the locals day out when families gather in their hundreds.
Inland area great for exploration. Elche the area Capital is a lovely town, and Alicante - where the airport is - such a beautiful City - mainly overlooked by travellers. Fab new Marina and Piaza area behind Marina. Another small town - Guardamar - between Torrevieja and La Marina - terrific old Spanish town. Great street Market on Wednesdays.
