The island of Tabarca is a unique corner in the Valencian Community, an eminently tourist destination that every year manages to attract more and more people. Although it is not a destination too big (it does not exceed 1.8 km in length and in its widest part it has 400 meters approximately) it receives thousands of people every year.
What to see in Tabarca?
One of the main attractions is the Marine Reserve that surrounds it, being the first in Spain to have this recognition. It is a very special place to dive or snorkel and know this destination from a completely different point of view. You can see a flora and fauna that has been able to develop without problems despite the large number of tourists who come to know the reserve.
Although it is small, the town is highly recommended to visit. You will be able to find small houses, some narrow streets that end in a wide square. You should also visit the church of San Pedro and San Pablo, the eighteenth century or its wall among many other places.
Another reason why visiting Tabarca is for its gastronomy, where the main dishes of its cookbook are made with fish and seafood, but we can not forget its delicious rice and soups.
The fourth reason why visiting Tabarca is for its fantastic sunsets in the south of the island. Many people get something to drink, they sit on the rocks and little by little they are enjoying how the sun sets on the horizon, at first everything will look orange and then violet, being a magical moment of this destination.
Finally, we recommend a visit to the wall of Tabarca, which dates back to the eighteenth century and was originally a defensive point of this destination against the attacks of Berber pirates. Strolling along its entire length and knowing its three doors will allow us to know more about its history.
