Tabarca is the only habited island on the coast of Valencia and it is very close to the city of Alicante, so it is very visitable. To get there, you have to take a boat from Santa Pola and travel about 11 nautical miles, this journey usually does not exceed 20 minutes. The island can be seen in just one day, but for those of you who are not going to stay there, a problem arises: where to eat in Tabarca?
Lunch in Tabarca: options
Whether you’ve been to Tabarca for a quiet day on the beach (as quiet as a day on the Spanish Levante) or you’ve chosen a route through the island’s historic buildings, you can choose from a wide range of options:
There are several restaurants on the island, including an Italian restaurant and several cafes offering sandwiches and another food. However, the best are whose that have traditional cuisine, with a wide range of culinary offerings, where you can taste everything from seafood dishes, from the typical paella to a good sandwich of squid.
One of these restaurants is Masín restaurant. Its style of traditional Mediterranean cuisine is very attractive and its premises, clean and modern style, is very comfortable. In addition, it is also a hostel, so if you want to stay on the island at night is a very complete option.
The gastronomic offer of the island, in any case, is somewhat expensive, in line with the rest of the Alicante coastline, and at certain times it is difficult to find room in restaurants, especially in summer, because there are many people. It is therefore advisable to look for a restaurant first thing in the morning, before it fills up, so that you can enjoy a meal prepared with less haste and more careful customer service.
I hope you take all these details into account for lunch or dinner in Tabarca. We leave you the link to be able to hire the speedboat service + food at Masín Restaurant.
