Santa Pola

Santa Pola is located on the Costa Blanca, approximately 20 minutes drive south of Alicante airport. A small fishing port, Santa Pola is famous for its variety of landscapes, from the views of the distant mountains to the wild sand dunes.

Facilities


Santa Pola is less busy and built up than Torrevieja but still has all the facilities you would expect from a small prosperous Spanish coastal town.

Industry
Alongside tourism, Santa Pola is also home to a major salt works and the harbour has the largest amount of fishing boats of any port on the Mediterranean Sea.

Beaches


The town has several wonderful beaches, including over 4km of fine sand and crystalline water. At the Playa Lisa beach you can walk out to sea for some distance and the water still only reaches knee-height!

History


Just offshore lies the island of Tabarca, which belongs to the province of Alicante. This island was once used as a headquarters by the Berber pirates, but nowadays it is a Marine Reserve, abundant with flora and fauna on both the island and in the surrounding waters.

National Park
Las Salinas, next to the town, is a marshland area that is a protected Natural Park and declared an area of special importance for wild birds, including Flamingos and stilt birds.

Activities
Santa Pola is ideal for many nautical sports and air based pursuits. 
It is common to see wind surfing, sailing, swimming, fishing, jet skiing and paragliding being practised along the coast.
