THE ISLAND OF TABARCA
The island of Tabarca, a former pirate refuge, is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, located about 8 km from the port of Santa Pola. It is the largest island in the Valencian Community and the only one inhabited. It is considered a Natural Heritage and as well as a marine reserve, being ideal for diving and other water sports. Representative of the island of Tabarca is its gastronomy such as Caldero rice. It is connected to Santa Pola by regular public transport through the ferries colloquially called "Tabarqueras".
Santa Pola is a benchmark for sports tourism considered an International Sports City. With state-of-the-art sports facilities for practicing professional and semi-professional sports and sporting events of international relevance such as the Santa Pola International Half Marathon and International Swimming Competition from Santa Pola to Tabarca, Santa Pola presents itself as an ideal destination for practicing any kind of sport. Santa Pola is also configured as a benchmark in sailing tourism.
Tabarca Island Marine Nature Reserve is undoubtedly one of the incentives for diving in a privileged environment such as the first marine reserve in Spain.
