In this article we focus on the subject of hiring a car if you plan on visiting the town of Torrevieja.
Torrevieja is a large coastal town located on Spain’s Southern Costa Blanca. Torrevieja is popular with its visitors owing to its first class tourism infra structure and close proximity to two international airports. Spain and the Costa Blanca in particular is very popular with British visitors as it is only a two hour flight from the United Kingdom and Alicante and Murcia are serviced with budget airlines.
Torrevieja has a fantastic Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. The weather can be mixed during the winter, it can certainly be called cold sometimes dropping to 5°C but equally there are many days where the temperature almost hits 20°C and often the skies are clear blue and sunny which lifts the spirits. Needless to say in the height of summer the temperature in Torrevieja is mostly around 30°C if not higher.
Many British people on the strength of the pound and the booming housing market have bought second homes in Torrevieja and some have quit Britain altogether and have moved here. Many towns on the Costa Blanca have quite a large ex-pat population, which in turn is good for the British holiday maker that would like a bit of familiarity while on holiday.
Owing to so many people having bought second homes there are many apartments and villas for rent which has become the way to go on holiday to the Costa Blanca and hiring a car is definitely the way to make the most of your vacation from start to finish, to be able to come and go at ones leisure instead of relying on public transport and taxis.
Torrevieja is known for its fabulous promenade filled with people enjoying the restaurants and the shops. The blue flag beach has all the necessary facilities to make you have a great day at the beach, with a play area for children and volley ball nets, foot showers and W.C.
Torrevieja has much to be discovered especially if you have hired a car, Aquopolis the water park or maybe a day out at Murcia visiting Terra Natura and Aqua Natura. The Habeneras Shopping Centre in Torrevieja is a firm favourite with those people seeking a little retail therapy. There are many first class golf courses in the area, which if you’ve hired a car you will certainly be able to tee off.
By all means if you just want to visit the beach and not do any sightseeing then perhaps instead you should get an airport transfer to Torrevieja. But instead if you really want to enjoy the magnificent Costa Blanca and all the attractions and sights that you can visit, get car hire for Torrevieja and enjoy a great vacation and holiday.
