This is a beautiful flat beach that is very clean, vast and very sandy with clean water. It was a warm day, so we bought a throw from a seller on the beach and sat on the sand for a few hours watching the world go by, gazing at the views across the water. There were lots of people strolling along the beach and families enjoying quality time together. It was nice to see children building sand castles and playing games. Along the beach there was a lovely walkway lined with bars, restaurants and a beach shop. This is a great place for families and people who enjoy long coastal walks.

The beach at La Mata is beautiful. It is a flat sandy beach and you can literally walk for miles. Really good idea to have boards to cross the fine sand and feet washing points. There are several restaurants to enjoy a meal.

Ohh how I wish mankind would take their rubbish away with them. I walked a couple of hundred yards up and down the beach at the water line and filled a large crisp bag with bits of plastic, polis styrene, bottle tops and a couple of cable ties ?.

Playa de la Mata is possibly the most perfect beach for a full day out. At 2,500 meters long and 30 meters wide it is huge! Its beautiful golden sand is ideal for sunbathing, playing with a bucket and spade or going for long beach strolls. It has been awarded the Blue Flag and also the Qualitur Award. It is kept impeccably clean and has Life Guards for safety. It has the basic services such as toilets and foot showers but also many extras such as the 14 beach bars, volleyball pitches, and a football pitch. There are umbrella and sun lounger rentals, and if you like to be a bit more active then you can even rent a pedalo. There is a kids play area and a number of access ramps.

Bought a flat in La Mata and the beach is excellent. Stretches along from the town towards Guadamar del Segura and is wide sandy and clean with clean water. There are rocky areas but if you watch where the locals go you can avoid them. Well worth a long walk along the shore to take in the fresh air. A few beach bars and restaurants in the town with walkways into the nature area. A far better beach than the main two in Torrevieja.

The beach has marked out spaces so that others don’t sit too close
The beach is clean and not too busy.
The sea has some flat rocks you can sit on which jut out into the sea
Lovely and sandy

It is a really beautiful beach with many places to stop and eat or get a cold drink. From the bathing point of view there are a few rocky bits in the water so you need to look where you are going. There are different levels moving away from the shoreline which might give false confidence to a child. Sometimes there is a light current south. All in all it is quite a safe bathing beach and during the season there are lifeguards present too.
We have been to the beach for swimming/sunbathing 6 times over the last 2 years for a couple of hours each time.and we have both experienced something rather odd. About 4 hours after leaving the beach we have both developed a cough which seems to come from irritation in the Bronchial tubes/Lungs etc, we are not doctors! It has only occurred when we have been in contact with the water, even just paddling.
This appears to disappear overnight. It is very odd that it has happened every time though?
We were wondering if anyone else has experienced this?
We have been along the great boardwalk many times and never had any problems at all.
