Tourist information

A video about Torrevieja in Spanish, to get you in the right mood 🙂

Here is a film by Alegria International Real Estate from Playa del Cura, the beach located 50 m from the apartment. It gives a good picture of how the beach looks at high season in July and August. The beach has public restrooms, also for disabled people. The beach is shallow so it is safe to swim even far out. There are also life guards, should something go wrong.
