Torre de la Horadada is a coastal town, which has experienced its development recently thanks to tourism. It owes its name to two factors: the first, the watchtower of the 16th century; and the second, the place where said tower is located: the Punta de la Horadada (the part of the name “horadada” is due to the fact that this overhang of land to the sea has small caves made by water, that is, it is pierced, which is the Spanish meaning of the word ¨horadado¨). Torre de la Horadada consists of several beaches that have a blue flag.
The promenade of Torre de la Horadada is a perfect place to go for a walk before of after enjoying a typical Spanish meal in any of the many restaurants and bars and have an ice cream at any of the ice cream stalls you will find there.
One of the most famous restaurants of Torre de la Horadada, called ¨Don Manuel¨, can be found on the square next to the promenade. The friendly and experience waiters will offer you a wide range of typical Spanish dishes and tapas for your enjoyment.
