On your next trip to the coastal town of Torrevieja make sure that you consider our Torrevieja car hire services as your main means of transportation. The town is within short driving times of several other important locations in southern Spain so having a car at your disposal would not be a bad idea.

Considering the size of the town and its proximity to other larger settlements, Torrevieja is not served by an airport, however there are nearby airports in Alicante and Murcia located at forty and twenty-five kilometers away so you can easily drive a car offered by our Torrevieja car rental services from there to town or better yet use our Alicante car rental services if you’re landing there. The city’s name literally means old tower and it gets this name from an old tower which was first mentioned around 1800.

The area around Torrevieja is well known for its salt production with huge salt lakes surrounding the road towards Alicante.

Even though it is rather easy to get around the city by foot, having a car will surely come in handy, whether it’s to reach the various important parts of the city or for when you want to visit the surroundings or the neighboring cities.

It should be noted that probably due to the town’s size it has managed to retain its small Spanish town charm and the skyline is free of any high rise apartment blocks. Despite its size however, the town is a great place to visit in part due to its salt-lagoon infused micro-climate which makes it a great place for sufferers of rheumatism and arthritis, and also due to the great and many beaches and the variety of entertainment options around.

As far as the beaches are concerned, there are quite a few of them and many of them have Blue Flag awards so you will be lounging in the highest quality possible. The town is also filled with many shopping opportunities, over two and a half thousand shops sell everything from fashion to electronics so you can have your pick.

These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while on your trip so make sure to consider our Torrevieja car hire services as a way of seeing and doing more with your limited time there.
