22 Oct Top sunset places in Torrevieja
The time of the summer solstice, when we have a large number of hours of sunshine, invites you to enjoy nature and outdoor activities.
However, the sunset can also be perfectly enjoyed during the fall and winter months. In addition, from our point of view, in these months it has a color and a feeling that makes this natural phenomenon even more special.
Whether from the seashore or from a high vantage point, watching the king star disappear over the horizon is always a beautiful sight.
During sunset we see the sun dimmed, so that we can almost look at it without protection. But be careful: that its light does not bother us excessively does not mean that it cannot damage the eye, especially if we look at it through the lens of a camera. You always have to be cautious when looking at the sun.
The attenuation is due to the fact that, being close to the horizon, the path that the sunlight makes through the atmosphere is greater than when it is high in the sky, as it would be at noon. The particles that make up the atmosphere are responsible for absorption, so that, the further it travels through the atmosphere, the more light is absorbed and the dimmer we see the solar disk.
Which are the top places to watch it in Torrevieja?
Parque Natural de las Lagunas de La Mata y Torrevieja
Las Lagunas de La Mata y Torrevieja are formed by two main lagoons that comprise more than 4,000 hectares of surface. Connected to the sea through the Acequión channel, they are home to one of the most beautiful natural spaces on the Costa Blanca.
Due to its Mediterranean climate and the salinity of its waters, the park welcomes a multitude of birds, some in danger of extinction, highlighting the flamingo, the stilt, the common tern or the black-necked grebe. The pinkish sky when the projected sun sets in the sheets of water and the reflections of its majestic flamingos create a special beauty to keep in the memory.
La Bocana is a wakeboarding bar located in the port of Torrevieja. Appart from good food and the possibility to try a wakeboarding ride, this place has a wooden terrace with sofas to enjoy a drink while you are watching sunset. Just a perfect plan.
