Theme Parks

There is a fairground in Torrevieja, next to the marina, open all the year round, although there are more rides during the summer.

If you really want a theme park try the Terra Mitica which is a Paramount Park comparable to Alton Towers near Benidorm and is about 1 hour in the car.

Terra Mitica is the first real theme park in Spain. It is not just an amusement Park, it offers all visitors something different: a theme park that recreates the lost civilizations of the Med: Egypt, Greece, Rome, Iberia, and the Islands.

The daring can experience falling from great heights on the flight of the phoenix and great speed on one of the largest wooden roller coasters in Europe.

Elderly visitors will enjoy the excitement and entertainment of the virtual dark rides, stories and legends told with the help of technology. Children will enjoy mini replicas of the main rides in each area.

Terra Mitica is divided into five areas, four of them surround a lake that symbolize the Mediterranean Sea from which emerges the fifth area, The Islands:

  • AREA 1.- "Egypt, Land of Pharaohs".
  • AREA 2.- "Greece, The home of the Gods".
  • AREA 3.- "Rome, The Frontier".
  • AREA 4.- "Iberia, The Warm Shores".
  • AREA 5.- "The Islands, The Great Journey"

Go Carts

The Nature Reserve Of The La Mata And Torrevieja

Lagoons

Covering over 3,700 hectares the reserve includes both the La Mata and Torrevieja salt water lagoons. The Torrevieja lagoon is largest at about 1,400 hectares and the La Mata lagoon is about half that size. The rest of the reserve is down to pasture or scrub land.

Connected to the sea by 2 artificial channels and each other, the Mediterranean flows through to this shallow depression and then warms in the Spanish sun.

The water in the Torrevieja lagoon is allowed to evaporate and the salt collected (1 million tons per year).

The salt marshes and reed beds are used by over 100 species of birds, that feed on the small crustaceans and larvae that live in this highly salty water.

The lagoons are famous for the flamingos, grebes and avocets that live here.
