Isla de Tabarca, Alicante: 4 reviews and 7 photos

To reach Tabarca island you can take a boat from Alicante port (about 1 h) but also from Santa Pola port, which is closer.
The island is not big: less than 2 km long and about 400 m wide. It has been a refuge for pirates and a prison.
Today there is a small fishing village in the island. Most people go for one day, but there is a hotel for those who want a short quiet vacation. In the restaurants near the beach you can try a caldero, a typical dish based on rice and fish.
The waters around Tabarca are a good place for submarinisme due to the diversity of flora and fauna.
