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.

  • We leave from Alicante in boat to spend a day on this beautiful island. Very quiet (though surely that in summer it is too touristy...) and very well maintained. We ate a great cauldron in the Mar Azul restaurant. Very good trip to spend the day

  • The most interesting of Tabarca is the boat trip and the possibility of enjoying a mini walk from Santa Pola, the beach is very well bad Tabarca is the restaurant which are very expensive and very bad quality, otherwise is a paradisiacal place where to enjoy a day in the countryside away from the city or town avoiding vehicles.
