Santa Pola Tourist
Santa Pola has managed to remain untouched by mass tourism, no package tour holiday operators come anywhere near here. However the town's population does increase considerably during the summer months, largely due to an influx of people arriving for their holidays. Visitors to the town tend to be native Spaniards from the countries interior; often they are owners of holiday homes in the area, or are renting properties from those who do.
Like many Spanish towns the centrepiece is its square; the one at Santa Pola is known as the Plaza de la Glorieta. A 20th century creation the square is nothing amazing in itself, but many families congregate here in the evening to have a drink or an ice cream (well into the early hours), giving it a vibrant feel. On one side of the square is a magnificent 16th century castle, still used today to host events, and the focal point of various fiestas throughout the town's calendar.
The town has several wonderful beaches, including over 4km of fine sand and crystalline water. Cuisine in Santa Pola features highly, and is mainly traditional Spanish fare, although international tastes are catered for. The highest concentration of restaurants can be found along the sea front. With those nearest the harbour focusing on dishes made from the catch of the day. Many of these are tapas restaurants serving freiduras, which are essentially fish and shellfish platters fried in batter.
So if you are looking for a very Spanish town, with beautiful beaches, great ambience, good food, and lots to see and do, then Santa Pola is certainly worth a visit.
