Don’t forget to visit Torrevieja’s floating museums! The museum is comprised of three ships of different origins: the S-61 Delfin Submarine and the Albatros III Customs Surveillance Patrol Boat. The S-61 Delfin Submarine was the first Spanish Navy’s ship.

And the last ship to join the museum was the “Pascual Flores” which was mentioned previously; this ship was reconstructed back to its originality. It was used by sailors to sell salt! Three different ships with so much history to spare! The Museos Flotantes Delfin S-61 y Albatros II is an attraction you do not want to miss!

Parque de Las Naciones provides a quiet and restful break from the crowds. It’s a nice place to go for a walk and let the kids run around. Children love it as there’s a play area for them. The attraction is that it’s almost like a farm setting, with roosters, peacocks, parrots and lots of other birds. Set around a lake, waterbirds like ducks and geese make it their home and in season, their chicks entertain locals and visitors alike. The park is not huge, but there are areas where you can take some time out and picnic. You can even hire an electric boat and get out on the water. Conveniently, there’s street parking on Don Cesar Canovas Girada.
