Torrevieja and where else?

We are hoping to stay in a friend's apartment inland from Torrevieja for a week in June next year, but wanted ideas of another town to stay in for a couple of nights perhaps near a beach.

Will you have transport Cath? If not which will be your gateway airport? It might be worth stopping somewhere close to your departure point. If it is Alicante you could consider stopping in the city to enjoy sightseeing, local restaurants and the beach.

If you will have transport how far inland will you be? It might not be worth changing accommodation as the road system is very good and you can access many beaches quite easily.

Aside from a beach what would you need?

Torrevieja is the sort of place you visit rarely but do not want to stay there. It does have an Iceland shop for English food.

But transport is poor in the area and a car is really needed if you stay anywhere outside the town. In June there should be a fair bit of accommodation about and you can decide where else to stay when there.

Hi Cath - let us know if you will have a car, as if you do, there will be a lot more options.
