"A sunny day at sea" Isla de Tabarca by Christina1881

Isla de Tabarca Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 49 photos

Tabarca is a little island outside of Santa Pola, Alicante, which obviously is a tourist-island more than anything, but even with the island full of turists (like me and the friends with whom I went) the island is magical and still seems "untouched" in some unexplainable way.

To get to Tabarca it is possible to sail from Alicante or from Santa Pola. We sailed from Santa Pola which is a trip of about 25 minutes, and about 12 Euro (return trip). There are boats each hour - only be aware that the last one leaves Tabarca around 18-30-19h in the afternoon.

Tabarca is famous for its corrals and it is a perfect spot for diving, and also have a beautiful sandy beach for swimming!




"Frente a la ciudad de Alicante, a unas diez o doce millas, y cerca del cabo de Santa Pola o del Aljub, se encuentra la isla de Tabarca, con una longitud aproximada de 1.800 metros y una anchura máxima de unos 400 metros. En realidad mas que de una isla , se trata de un pequeño archipiélago, compuesto, aparte de Tabarca, por los islotes La Cantera, La galera y la Nao.

La visita a la isla de Tabarca es un excursión casi obligatoria para todas las personas que veranean en la Costa Blanca. Múltiples salidas, desde el puerto de Alicante y Santa Pola, facilitan esta ruta en un cómodo paseo marítimo que dura, aproximadamente, una hora desde Alicante y media hora desde Santa Pola."
