“salt lakes torrevieja”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Great day out the water is so refreshing, also make sure you have no cuts as the water will sting, Also on the 332 going to Alicanti if you are lucky you will see the flamingos, and also the pink water which is because of the shrimps. Worth a visit.

“Great to see and all for free”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

You can enter the salt lake by exiting the roundabout at San Luis (by Da Vinci's). Wearing aqua shoes or similar is essential if you walk into the lake as the salt crystals are razor sharp. The water is very smooth on the skin as it is so saline and is apparently very good for the skin and joints. You can get some great photos as everything reflects as a mirror image. Consider taking a plastic chair for a sit down to soak up the peaceful atmosphere.

“Fun to explore with locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

If you manage to find friends that live in Torrevieja you can get in to the lakes via a passage. There are several entrances. Many locals go there to bathe and cover themselves with the natural minerals from the deposits around the lakes. There are sulfur rich deposits and then the salty mud around the edge of the water. It will leave your skin feeling like you've just spent a day at the SPA. Frankly, it is like an outdoor natural SPA.

Take care not to get the salty water in your eyes haha It'll sting like nothing else. You float in the lakes. Like you're made of air. Imagine trying to push a beach ball into the water. That is how YOU will feel :D

If you have issues like asthma you should definitely try being close to these lakes. It clears the airways :)
