“Clean, safe beach”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Lovely clean, safe beach. Water great. Get there early enough and you'll get a good parking space and a position on the beach near the water. People seem to come and go in shifts. And they will plonk themselves very near you, so spread your stuff out! Two little bars/shacks selling beer, soft drinks, ice creams, etc. at one end, lots of restaurants along the front further on. 'Lookie-lookie' men plying their trade (knock-off Ray Bans, etc.) - willing to bargain.

“A long, clean beach with plenty of cafes”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

La Mata beach is just along the coast from Torrevieja and is kept very clean; ideal for swimming or just lounging about! Plenty of sea-front cafes and restaurants.

“Love this beach!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I'm rather biased as my parents have a place overlooking this beach. I love it so much and have been coming back for years. Its the best beach in the direct vicinity of Torrevieja and its even more fab now that the boardwalk has been completed. Theres everything you could want at Playa La Mata!

The beach is very clean and busy at this time of the year, so arrive early for the best spot. Plenty of bars and cafes nearby.
