Villamartin/Blue Lagoon area
Villamartin is situated in the Costa Blanca south, 20 minutes drive south to Murcia airport and 40 minutes drive north to Alicante airport. Most relate Villamartin as a golf only area but over the years it has become a bustling all year round holiday destination and residential area. Golf however is still very popular, with its own championship course and neighboring courses, it is still a golfers paradise!
Villamartin Plaza - has over 40 restaurants varying from Italian, English, German, Spanish, Mexican, Austrian, Chinese, and French cuisine to name but a few, and these serve food both indoors and outside in the summer months in the delightful square. For those not wishing to eat, there are also plenty of Pubs and bars.In my opinion the best restaaurant in the plaza is "The Square" which is located on the top level.
Villamartin Golf Course
Built over 20 years ago, Villamartin is without doubt one of the finest areas of the Costa Blanca offering a wide variety of activities. Villamartin Golf Club hosted the Mediterranean Open in 1994. The course is set in wonderful natural parkland, with olive trees and a colourful lining of the fairways.Las Ramblas and Campoamor with its beautiful clubhouse are only a few minutes drive away also.
Of course the seaside promenades and the fishing port are attractions in their own right for visitors to this part of the Southern Mediterranean. The Torrevieja micro-climate, brought about by the two salt lakes of La Mata and Torrevieja which occupy more than 55 per cent of the total area of the town, with its 340 days of sun and an average annual temperature of 20 degrees centigrade, has meant that thousands of tourists from the north of Spain and northern Europe have decided to set up home permanently in the town.
If you still do not know this small corner of south east Spain there is still time to do so, because the best thing of all are the local people, traditionally friendly and open to both national and international tourism. English is spoken as a second language so you will not find it a problem to communicate within the area.
One of the greatest tourist attractions of Torrevieja has always been its variety of entertainment for young people. There are more than a hundred night bars, the majority concentrated in the so-called El Baluarte area in the La Punta district, which have become a major attraction for thousands of people from all over the world.
The cosmopolitan nature of Torreviejas nightlife can be seen in its leisure areas: Casablanca, Bésame Mucho, Pata Palo, Tía Roqueta, Tirachinas, Iris Pub, La Cantina or Correcaminos, are just some examples of typical leisure places in the town. For the real nightbirds this provision is rounded off by the macro-discoteque Pachá, as well as the historic Look and KKO clubs, which cannot be passed over during a nocturnal pub-crawl (la ruta del bakalao).
During the day Torrevieja also offers a range of leisure and entertainment areas. As well as its beaches and numerous terraces along its maritime promenade, its great aquatic park (Aquópolis) is swarming with families, young people and children during the summer months.
If you prefer to contemplate and enjoy the Alicante coastline, there is no better way than by going on a trip on the Tabardo cruisers equipped with catamarans in which you can observe the sea bed. Excursions to the island of Tabarca and trips all along the coast of southern Alicante round off this interesting and unique tourist provision.
Finally, for the lovers of ecological and environmental tourism, you will not do better than visit the lakes of La Mata and Torrevieja to enjoy a mud bath, recommended by doctors around the world for its curative properties for a large number of rheumatic dermatological, heart and respiratory complaints.
Every Friday Torrevieja holds one of the largest open-air markets in Spain and sells all kinds of food, textiles, clothes and accessories. A smaller market can be found at La Florida on a Saturday, and is very close to our apartment. Street markets can be found every day of the week in different areas.
The town has a good shopping area with lots of independently owned shops selling a variety of goods. There are no department stores or shopping malls. An indoor market is open daily where you can buy fresh produce fish, meat, fruit and vegetables.
The town square is very picturesque. At Christmas it hosts a magnificent Nativity scene, which covers a large proportion of the square.
The surrounding countryside has an abundance of orange and lemon groves. All in all, an ideal holiday destination for the whole family, at any time of the year.
