This town in Alicante, located on the Mediterranean Sea, has kept its old fishing tradition alive. The excellent beaches with views over the salt flats, the Cape of Santa Pola, the rice and fresh fish are just a few of its many attractions.Read more...

What to see There are two different areas: the fishing harbour and the town centre. A highlight in the town is the Castle, now transformed into a Cultural Centre. We recommend heading to the vantage point in Plaza del Calvario square that offers a panoramic view of the Bay and the waterfront. The port has archaeological remains from Santa Pola's Roman era, alongside modern facilities such as the Exchange building, the Produce Market and the Casa del Mar. Beaches Santa Pola is home to over 11 kilometres of coastline with all kinds of beaches, from coves with crystal-clear waters to shallow sands with gentle tides. Top beaches includes El Pinet, La Gola, Tamarit, Playa de Varadero, Playa de Levante and the coves of Santiago Bernabeu. Nature You can visit the Salinas Nature Reserve in the Bay area and see the flamingos and stilts that nest there. Gastronomy In addition to the exquisite rice dishes, try a local delicacy such as blanquillo de rape (monkfish stew).
