A Birds eye view of Playa del Saladar

You need to travel south from Alicante in order to reach this beach. Playa del Urbanova is also known as Playa del Saladar and this is easily accessed from bus number 27 (Santa Pola bus) and there are plenty of car parking spaces for the intrepid sun worshipper.

Playa del Saladar

The beach itself is 50 metres wide and is 1,600 m long. As this video shows back from the beach are dunes and marshlands. These were formerley an important source of salt and gave the beacch its name - Playa del Saladar.

Confusingly it is also known as Playa de Urbanova. This name comes from the residential area that backs onto this great beach.
