When to go to Torrevieja
Summer in Spain is notoriously warm and definitely the busiest tourist season in Torrevieja. If you want to catch the sun, ride the waves and get a tan, this is definitely the time to visit to get the most out of Torrevieja. However, it's also the busiest and most expensive time to visit the Costa del Sol. For students or young people looking for cheap accommodation in Torrevieja, see if you can schedule your trip earlier in the summer, between May and early July, to avoid the busy and expensive school holiday period.
How to get to Torrevieja
The best way to get to Torrevieja from the rest of Europe is to fly to Alicante Airport. Most major cities and airlines in Europe will fly here. From the airport, there are regular and cheap bus services which go directly to Torrevieja. Lots of the cheapest flights to Alicante land after 10pm, so the buses at this time fill up quickly and you could be left waiting for a few hours. If your flight is at this time, it might be worth considering whether hiring a car for your holiday in Torrevieja would be a better option. From within mainland Spain, you can get coaches directly to Torrevieja or trains to nearby Alicante or Murcia.
How to get around in Torrevieja
Torrevieja is quite a small place, so it's easy for most tourists to walk around the city. There are a few bus routes run by Costa Azul connecting the major attractions around Torrevieja. If you have young children or struggle to walk around all day, hiring a car might be your best option although parking spaces are limited in the centre of town, so book your hotel or holiday apartment rental in the centre of town to be close to restaurants, shops and attractions.

Visit the Parque Natural de Torrevieja to see Torrevieja's famous pink-tinted waters. This nature reserve has lots of beautiful plants and wildlife, but the star of the show are the naturally pink lagoons. The salt in the water gives them their unusual colour.
