We will be waiting for you at the port of Tabarca to start the free tour of this charming island off the coast of Alicante.
In Tabarca it seems that time has not passed and the first contact with this unique place transports us to its past. We will begin the visit talking about its history and why it has always been so linked to the sea.
We will follow its walled perimeter, built to protect this Mediterranean enclave from pirate raids, until we reach the Puerta de Llevant. Speaking of pirates, do you know the difference between a pirate and a corsair? Do you know who the most famous pirates were? We will make a stop in the main square of Tabarca to immerse ourselves in the pirate life and its relationship with the past of the island, sure you know a certain Barbarossa…
Then we will approach the church of San Pedro and San Pablo, built for the spiritual help of its inhabitants.
We cross the Baillencourt square, the last gate of the wall, until we reach the Mirador del Salvador. As we contemplate the purity of its waters we will understand why it was the first marine reserve recognized as such in Spain.
If you are a lover of legends, you will like to accompany us to the Cova del Llop Marí, where we will learn about the most famous mystery related to this marine grotto.
We will continue the walk to the main beach revealing other curiosities about the life of the islanders, their culture and festivals of Tabarca.
We can not finish this free tour without talking about the gastronomy, because it is another of the wonders that the island hides. We will tell you which are its star dishes and we will give you the best recommendations to put these tips into practice or, better said, to the table.
If you go to another city just look for the orange umbrella.
