Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Valencian Country / Province of Alicante / Costa Blanca / Santa Pola / Isla de Tabarca
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. Plan to visit Isla de Tabarca during your Santa Pola vacation using our convenient Santa Pola day trip planning website.
