Isla de Tabarca, Santa Pola

(850+ reviews on the web)
Island
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.

  • Weekend to escape the stress. Total tranquility on this small island which is like being in a tiny village. Amazing the lack of noise from cars.

  • A beautiful island that there is to know, after many years by santa pola had never gone through a few things and others and the fact that we were in love! That if the summer months fills that it is hard to find a place to put the Chair or the towel lol waters for snorkeling is a delight.
