The island of Tabarca is well worth a visit at any time of year. The island thrives off of the city of Alicante, and is without doubt a symbol and tourist attraction of the Costa Blanca and the Mediterranean coast. Located only 11 miles from the city, 1800 meters long and with a maximum breadth of 400 meters, the island of Tabarca offers visitors a true refuge, ideal for a weekend break of complete peace and tranquility. Once there, you are free to enjoy the beautiful countryside and architecture, naturally removed from the stresses of everyday life. Sample the internationally famous cuisine that specializes in seafood. There are various restaurants to choose from, maybe try the ‘calamar de potera a la plancha’ (grilled squid) and the typical ‘caldero tabarqui’ (Tabarca hotpot. ) This really is an invitation you can't refuse!
Tabarca, also known as Isla Plana (due to its flat landscape) or New Tabarca, is the only inhabited island in Valencia and in winter has a stable population of around 30 people, all of whom are involved in tourism or fishing. Visitors are always warmly welcomed and invited to enjoy quality services and exceptional natural resources that in 1986 earned the island the title of Mediterranean Marine Reserve.
A walled city was built, which can be accessed through 3 large doors named San Rafael, San Gabriel and San Miguel. Within these walls you’ll find interesting architectural heritage, including the Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, a Baroque style building with a fortified appearance.
