Playareas and Beaches in Torrevieja

  • Parque de las Naciones

    Recommended by Keeley Carwich

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    Parque de las Naciones or Park of the Nations is located just off the N332 and is definitely worth a visit with young children. It has a great play area with a huge slide which is shaped as a dragon!  It also houses a huge lake where you can hire boats and has various different birds and reptiles.

    "Everyone young and old loves the park. Take a picnic as you really can spend the day here. Take a trip on one of the boats on the lake (summer only) or tire the kids out on the bouncy castle and in the children´s play area" (KC, Jan 09)

  • Beaches in Torrevieja

    Recommended by Victoria Corbit

    With some of the best beaches in the Med a day out at the beach can be great way to entertain the little ones and top up your tan at the same time!!  A few to choose from in the area are Guardamar, La Zenia and La Mata.  Guardamar beach is a beautiful beach BUT the sea can be very dangerous with its undercurrents and rip tides.  The beach is patrolled by life guards and has a a red flag policy that MUST be adhered to.  La Zenia is a much calmer sea but does get very busy.  La Mata has a decked promenade which is great for a nice evening walk!  All the beaches are very clean and offer a great family day out.

    "I have visited all three of the above beaches and can’t fault any of them.  All have beach bars so keeping hydrated isn’t a problem (although I tend to take my own refreshments!)  We have enjoyed many a family day at all of them all well worth a visit." (VC, June 09)
