Browse the stalls of the bustling fish market in Torrevieja and then enjoy a light seafood lunch there. More than 300 fishing boats operate out of the harbor, so you can just imagine the volume and variety of seafood that is available on a daily basis. As you meander about the fresh seafood on ice, the guide will describe how the fishing boats operate in the fishing grounds or caladeros. You will also hear about the different types of fishing nets, how the fish are auctioned in large quantities and how they are kept fresh for export. It’s a fascinating process as fishing is such an integral part of daily life in Torrevieja. Every imaginable type of seafood comes into the market, and your lunch will feature some of the very freshest that day. Chances are, it will include a tasting of traditional fried fish and octopus rice, a specialty served throughout Costa Blanca.
