Isla De Tabarca, Santa Pola

(3.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
An island populated by low houses, Isla De Tabarca was declared a marine reserve in 1986. Boats leaving Alicante, Santa Pola, and Torrevieja transport tourists to the island throughout the year, making more frequent trips during the summer months. The seafood restaurants in the fishing village draw visitors to their fresh fish delicacies. The tallest buildings on the islet are the church and the lighthouse, both worth a visit during your stay on the 1,750 m (5,741 ft) strip of land. Bring your binoculars for bird-watching and your camera to preserve peaceful panoramic views over the water. Our Santa Pola trip builder makes visiting Isla De Tabarca and other Santa Pola attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Apart from the crossing by boat... the second is disappointing... A poorly maintained and dirty bunch of concrete... ONLY the northern part with its positive space constructible and natural

  • The food is fair and the service fine except in very busy times but all the menus are over priced even considering that all food has to be shipped over from the mainland. 
  • Then this is the only island in the vicinity today ferries back and forth with the very people this spring and summer. Nice excursions to visit once. Good restaurants but quite expensive.
