    Santa Pola is blessed with many good restaurants and cafes. There are big, well known places like the Varadero and the Batiste with prices to match, but there are many smaller places that also serve excellent food. at more affordable prices. The town's tourist office product a leaflet listing all ofthe major restaurants, their specialities and approximate prices. The Spanish tend to eat late in the evening, so don't be put-off by finding an empty restaurant mid-evening

    Horchata is a kind of milky drink made of roots of the vegetable called "chufa". Chufa is grown in the Valencia area exclusively for Horchata.
    It's not only very tasty but also great for your health. It has high lever of iron and potassium and many vitamins.

    There are lots of places where you can go for drinking, dancing in Santa Pola. Also, if you find a friend willing to drive you can go to Alicante... where the parties last much longer. And this is how beaten you will look when partying till 11 am.

Santa Pola Warnings and Dangers

    Sun protection products.

    by Pauldelabar Updated Nov 15, 2005

    I know that one of the high priorities on many peoples minds is to get in the Sun as fast as they can and for as long as they can to get a tan to be proud of when they return home. But.........

    BEWARE OF THE SUN !

    If you are fair skinned or even if not, USE Sun protection cream or lotion BEFORE hitting the beach. Even if just walking around town you can suffer from the Suns effects.

    Buy and wear a Hat or Cap to protect the top of your head.

    DO NOT sunbathe on the first day for more than TEN MINUTES ! I know that does not seem a lot of time but to avoid looking like a lobster and feeling itchy and uncomfortable, ten minutes only is recommended. Then gradually lengthen the time each day.

    Remember that when in the Sea or Pool, the water acts like a mirror and reflects extra Ultraviolet back at you.

    Seawater having a high salt concentration, has the same effect as putting salt on Pork Crackling ! So shower off as soon as you come out of the sea or saltwater swimming pool. By the way, beware of the little showers on the beach. They are intended for removing sand and are SALT water; so a shower in your apartment / hotel is better unless you are CERTAIN that the water is not salty!
