    The tourist Office has found a new place just off a few meters off the Main Plaza. It is now located inside the Town Hall situated in Plaza Gaspar Perelló since June 2010.

  • Torre de La Mata

    The old Roman Dock is the town's landmark located at the Plaza Embarcadero. This ancient tower which was rebuilt in 14th century was used in the Middle Ages to warn the local inhabitants of impending attacks by Barbary pirates. From here you have a fantastic view of the coast until Santa Pola. During clears days, Tabarca island is also in sight.

  • Plaza de la Agricultura

    This area is located in a secluded area of Torrelamata. The square , thus the name, boasts an old olive tree and some implements for pressing, producing and transporting La Mata's local wine. The work of Mauel Pizzana which is the image of Sacred Heart of Jesus occupies a space of this area.

  • Plaza Perfecta Rodriguez

    The square is located not far from the beach and very close to the town. A nice area ( about a hectare) with a variety of plants and tress growing, children's play ground and boccia grounds( a sort of bowling)...a pity i can't play this game because i do not know the rules :"> I love this park because of the stray cats cared by a generous old...

  • Paseo Navarra

    If you are based in La Mata, you can access the paseo through Paseo de La Mata going south. It starts from where Barlovento Restaurant is located(south-end) further along the seaside reaching Cala del Moro. A fantastic area!

  • Cabo Cervera Beach

    This is a very small area that it could be your private place during low season. A peaceful beach where you could really enjoy your holiday under the sun.

Torrelamata Restaurants

  • Tapas or Dining

    The first impression is the restaurant's look which is in form of a ship which attracts the guests first. But this restaurant is locally famous for their fine menus especially fish dishes and tapas. It is recommended to us by a Spanish lady and a language teacher from Torrevieja. The setting inside is like that of a fishermen's boat with all those...

  • Kebab anyone?

    This simple restaurant is one of a kind lining along the beach of La Mata. We love their kebabs and enjoy the sea atmosphere very much and the setting is comfortably cozy. Pizzas are also not to miss here. They have fine salads too. Don't be surprised,they do served with plastic knife and forks. Unless you ask....maybe ..... we didn't.

    more
  • Austrian dishes

    Fine Austrian cuisine located just a few steps away from the Calle Mayor. A good dining place. Salmon in creamsauce served with green salads is savoury. Not to forget, vino de la casa .

    This tip is especially written for women. We are not stuffed of these things, aren't you? Me not, that's why everytime i'm here in La Mata, i used to come and see what's new and what's on bargain! Don't worry, it's not a botique price here. It is a simple ready-made store of the village but sometimes i purchased something here which other expensive stores are selling. From the middle of July is sale-season

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: As we were there in August, it was soooo lovely but very hotttttttt. So you are best served with shorts, shirts , tennis shoes and slippers which you could use on Autumn too. During autumn, is a light coat and shoes advisable especially in the evenings.

    Photo Equipment: A must

    A long and spacious promenade, very recommended for those who wants to be active during their holidays. No hassles, jog, walk or just idle in any time of the day along the 2,500 m boulevard until the north end or back and forth. It is not a comparison to other beaches at the nearby towns and villages. A great area!

Torrelamata Sports & Outdoors

  • Pedalo

    A great activity besides lying under the sun. We used to rent a pedalo but a couple of years ago i almost broke my leg as we wanted to return the pedalo. It is very difficult to pull the boat away from the waters when there are big waves at the beachhead. Just be careful.

    more
  • Fishing on the Beach

    A popular pursuit along the coast, we saw many people enjoying their afternoon doing a spot of fishing. To my mind its just an excuse to laze away a sunny winters day on the beach, so who can blame them. We also saw a diver, checking what I assume to be lobster pots, but the water may be a bit cool this time of the year for me.

  • Post Office

    Though there are mail boxes at the Plaza and at the main streets, i think it is great to know where the post Office is. I usually go there directly to send postcards to my family and friends. If you are at the village Plaza at the Calle Mayor, look for the Panaderia Hernandez, just a few steps from the corner go west and you'll find the place

  • Peace at the costa

    If you ever searched for peace and rest at the often crowded Spanish costas, a great tip is Torrelamata, near Torrevieja. A very small town, not really monumental, but located at the beach, with a peacefull market place, little church and a lot of locals. Imagine, no hotels in that village...Great opportunities for food (la Despensa, the Buffet...

  • A pleasant time for holidays.....

    It is beautiful here almost the whole year through. But i suggest , if possible, never come here during Easter, and the months of July and August. We were here twice in the month of August. Whew! what a crowd! The beach was fully occupied. We seldom had seats in the bus everytime we went to town. Taxis at midnight? Huh, we qued for about 15...
