Taxi hire in La Mata?
Q. "Hi, Are there any local taxi firms in La Mata for us to hire a taxi for Alicante Airport?
Richard, Wakefield, West Yorks, England."

A. "Hi Richard, the best numbers to call for a taxi to take you from La Mata to Alicante airport are: (0034) 965 712 277 or (0034) 966 927 420.  I have used both of these companies for many years and both are totally recommended by me, plus, all drivers working for both will speak enough English to get you to the airport (they will have done exactly the same journey for many English tourists, many, many times!).
Kind regards.
Tony, San Luis, Costa Blanca, Spain."

Any cheap holiday accommodation in Lamata?
Q. "Hi, does anyone know where there is cheap holiday accommodation in lamata and how much for a week please.
John, Derby, Derbyshire, England."

A. "Hello John, not sure what you would term as cheap holiday accommodation in La Mata, and also, it's good to remember, you generally get what you pay for!!  But for myself, it's been dead easy to find good quality, reasonably priced accommodation in La Mata and when we go to La Mata on holiday every year, we just look on this website and click on the link for property rentals on the right hand side of this page and book it from there.
Hope this helps.
Elaine, Dursley, Gloucester, England."

Any chemists in La Mata?
Q. "Will be spending the next winter in one of the long term rentals in La Mata, from January to April, but do need certain types of medication while there. I'll be staying in an apartment in Parquemar 5, so as near as possible to that would be great.
Any help much appreciated.
Jim, Pickering, North Yorkshire, England."

A. "Hi Jim, No problem at all, there's quite a few chemists in La Mata, (in Spanish, the word for chemist is farmacia), there's probably something in the region of 10-20 farmacias in La Mata, but the nearest farmacia to Parquemar 5 would be the one attached to Parquemar 6, in the Centro Comercial Parquemar 6, in Avenida de Belgica, there's another one in Avenida de Francia, both farmacias are within 5-10 minutes walk from Parquemar 5.
A good bonus, is that most of the tablets and other medication you get in Spain, is often cheaper than the ones you get in England!
I do envy you, I love La Mata, but due to work commitments, can only spend a few weeks a year there, roll on retirement !
Steve, Lemington, Newcastle upon Tyne, England."

Any info on La Mata ?
Q.  "Hi, we are going to La Mata on holiday in July, 2 weeks self catering. Any info on La Mata would be much appreciated as it is our first time on holiday in Spain.
Also, we are hiring a car, so was wondering how much the tolls are on the main routes from airport etc?
Malcolm, Isle of Scalpay, Western Isles, Scotland."

A. "Hi Malcolm, not sure what info on La Mata you're looking for, but La Mata has everything you could need for a holiday in the sunshine. La Mata isn't packed and noisy like some of the larger Spanish villages, where it can also be hard to park and difficult to get a meal in a restaurant without prebooking. Parking in La Mata is easy and you can generally get a good meal at most of the restaurants in La Mata without the need for prebooking. La Mata also has an excellent beach and quite a lot of bars and restaurants.
Not sure which airport you are going from, but if you are going from Alicante airport to La Mata on the motorway, there's no tolls and if you are going from Murcia airport to La Mata by motorway, there's a couple of tolls on it, probably about 7 euros in total.  The N332 from either airport to La Mata is another option, which is the main coastal road and has no tolls at all.
Hope this helps you.  We're sure you'll have a great time on holiday in La Mata, we've been going there every year for about 4 years for family holidays in the spring and autumn and now wouldn't go anywhere else.
Keith, Jill and kids, Aylesbury, Bucks, England."

Any good restaurants in La Mata that offer good children's menus ?
Q.  "We are a family of 4 travelling on holiday to La Mata this year. Can anyone recommend any restaurants that cater for children as my daughter is a very fussy eater and we often struggle to find anywhere that offers a large children's menu other than chips!!!
Any help appreciated.
Emma, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England."

A.  "Hi Emma, quite a few of the Lamata restaurants will cater very well for young children. Whenever we go back to lamata on holiday, we usually go to some of the restaurants in Avenida de los Europeos and also some of the restaurants around the main church square by the beach and can always get good meals for the kids, meals like burger and chips, pizzas, kebabs, most 4 year olds would love those types of meals, the Tres Palmeras restaurant in Avenida de los Europeos has always cooked any type of meal we've wanted, even meals that weren't on the menu.
Give these places a try and then after you come back from your holiday, just email back to this noticeboard at to let us all know how you got on.
Susie, Phil and kids, Uxbridge, Middlesex, England."

Any supermarkets in La Mata open on Sundays ?
Q. "We'll be staying in one of the holiday apartments in La Mata, at Parquemar 5 next summer, but the arrival in La Mata is on a Sunday afternoon. Does anyone know if there's any supermarkets in La Mata open on Sundays please ?
Kim, Hailstead, Kent, England."

A. "Hello Kim, There's a fairly large supermarket in La Mata called Gama, which is just a few 100 yards south from the Church square, but can't remember seeing it open on Sundays. However, when I stay in one of the holiday rentals in Parquemar 6, (just a few yards from Parquemar 5), I very often use a small supermarket called Dicost Supermercado, in Avenida Holandia. They're definitely open on Sundays, (unless it's a Christmas Day or New Years Day etc), as I've shopped there loads of times on Sundays. They're next door to the excellent El Pozo restaurant, in map reference B3, on the following link, maps for La Mata
Hope this helps.  Have a great holiday !  La Mata's a great place.
Sue, Kendal, Cumbria, England."

Anyone know where Calle Les Piteres in La Mata is please ?
Q.  "Anyone know where Calle Les Piteres in La Mata is please? Thank you.
Jim and Suzanne, Cannock, Staffordshire, England."

A.  "Hello Jim and Suzanne, we've been going to La Mata on holiday every year for about 8 years and have never heard of that road - sorry!  We've even gone through our maps of La Mata and can't find that road anywhere!
It sounds similar, but there is a road called Calle Pitas in La Mata, it's just 3 roads up from the beach at Molino Blanco.
Hope this helps.
Terry and Karen, Wicklow, Co. Wicklow, Ireland."

Bar Connecta internet cafe
Q. "Does anyone have the address for Bar Connecta internet cafe in Torrelamata please. It's at the top of the hill, (by Los Leandros) next door to a Chinese restaurant.
Also, is the Hairy Cactus in Torrelamata still functioning?
Many thanks.
Jenny, Mattishall, Norfolk, England."

A. "The address of the internet café/bar, Bar Connecta, in Torrelamata is Calle Vial de Ronda 1, but the actual front door of the bar is on Carretera de Torrejon. The telephone number is 00 34 966 922 048. I'm not sure about the hairy cactus. There are so many bars in La Mata, that it's hard to remember them all"
John, Bradley Stoke, Bristol, England."

Bars / nightclubs in La Mata
Q. "Next summer, will be my third visit to La Mata, could anybody tell me if there are any discos/nightclubs in La Mata, or do you have to get a taxi out of town, on previous visits I have not noticed any.
Jane, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England."

A. "Hello Jane, not sure if you know, but nightclubs in Spain are 'different' to the nightclubs in the UK. The nightclubs in Spain feature a lot of the ladies of the night!!  On the assumption that you're not looking for this type of 'entertainment', then perhaps you're looking for discos in La Mata.  I've been going to La Mata every spring since 2002 and don't know of any discos in La Mata (discos in Spain are called discotecas), which is really the very reason that I love going to La Mata on holiday, no drunken brawls, etc, but, when we had my nephew and his friend with us last year, they took a 10 minute taxi-ride to Torrevieja, I don't know how many discos in Torrevieja there are, but they were happy with them.
Hope this helps.
Gill, Crewe, Stoke on Trent, England."

Bus's from Alicante to La Mata in the winter ?
Q.  "Hi, I'm travelling to La Mata on 27 December this year. Are there buses from Alicante during the winter?
Thanks a million
Edel, County. Cork, Ireland."

A.  "Hi Edel, No problem, the bus service runs all year from Alicante town to La Mata.
You'll have a great time on holiday in La Mata - December is a good time to visit La Mata - it's still quite warm. We usually stay in La Mata from about early December to late February - we retired a couple of years ago, so can do as we please with our time now.  It's a great way to get away from the cold, dark and wet winters in the UK !
Tony, Basildon, Essex, England."

A.  "Hi Edel, Once in La Mata, there's a very good bus service to Torrevieja. So no problems getting around and seeing the sights. If you are on an extended stay, you must see The Three Kings procession on the Eve of Epiphany on the 5th of January.
Have a great time.
Margaret, Burnham-On-Sea, Somerset, England."

Buses from Aquas Nuevas to La Mata
Q.  "Hi there, Does anyone know if buses run from the footbridge at Aquas Nuevas (near to the Lounge Bar) or the Supermercado, to La Mata as we're going out to Aguas Nuevas in May and would like to get to La Mata beach.
Shirley, St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom."

A. "From memory, there is a bus stop on the Auguas Nuevas side of the main road (Normally called the Old Alicante Road), opposite the Mercadona and lounge bar commercial area. The Costa Azul bus service definitely stops there and runs to La Mata.
Have a good holiday.
Anne, Dartford, Kent, England"

Bus's from LaMata ?
Q.  "Hello everyone, we'll be going to lamata on holiday in a couple of months and wondered, is it possible to get a bus from lamata to Torrevieja please?
Many thanks for any help.
Kim, Paul and family, Stevenage, Herts, England."

A.  "Hi, There's plenty of bus stops in lamata, but the main bus stop in lamata is on the main church square.  The frequency depends on the time of day and time of year, but there's usually a bus from lamata to Torrevieja every 20-30 minutes.
Hope this helps and hope you have a great holiday in lamata, it's a great beach resort, in fact, it's so good, we've been going to lamata on holiday every year since 2002!"
Michelle, Wayne and kids, Poole, Dorset, England."

Catholic Church in La Mata ?
Q.  "Can anyone let me know where the nearest catholic church is to la mata please?
We are staying in la mata in July this year.
Carolyn, Stoke on Trent, Staffs, England."

A.  "Hello Carolyn, the only Church in La Mata, (which is a Catholic one) is the one on the main square, by the beach and just a few 100 yards south from the Wednesday street market.
It's in map reference B4 in the street map for Lamata on the link below :
Street map for Lamata
We've been taking our holidays in Lamata every year for about 8 years, so know it fairly well, (it's a great place for a holiday).
If you need any further directions on it, just email to this page again, the location in Lamata where you will be staying and we'll try to give you directions from there.
Hope this helps.
Tina, Waterlooville, Hants, England."

Christmas dinner in La Mata ?
Q.  "Can anybody please recommend a good restaurant in La Mata for dinner on Christmas day?
Any help appreciated.
Anne and Bob, Wythenshawe, Manchester, England."

A.  "Hi Anne, Are you looking for Spanish food or English? If you are looking for an English Christmas Dinner, not much choice I am afraid. Possibly only one place will be open, in the town, I will check it out when I go out there next week on holiday, and let you know.
Margaret, Burnham-On-Sea, Somerset, England."

A.  "Hello Anne, A few years ago, it would have been quite difficult to find a restaurant in La Mata that did a dinner on Christmas day, but over the last 3-4 years, we've seen more and more Spanish, English, Chinese and German restaurants open on Christmas day.
If you're looking for a restaurant in La Mata that will be serving a 'typical' Christmas dinner on Christmas Day, then there should still be quite a few that will do that as well. Remember that the Spanish don't celebrate Christmas Day, the same way that English people do - the typical Spanish person celebrates their Christmas day on January the 6th - otherwise known as 3 Kings Day - so you should find that most Spanish restaurants in La Mata will be open on Christmas Day.
There's quite a good selection of different types of English restaurants in lamata, and quite a few of the English restaurants in lamata, are in Avenida Los Europeos, most of them will probably be open on Christmas day.  More details for some of the restaurants are on the link below :
Restaurants in La Mata.
Hope this helps.
Tony and Julie, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England."

Festival of Vendimia in La Mata ?
Q.  "Hello (Hola), Could someone please tell me about the above festival, i.e. when it takes place and what it entails?
Malcolm, Alvaston, Derby, England."

A.  "Hi Malcolm, Are you sure about the spelling ?  I think I've heard of a Verbena festival (for wine I think), but not sure.
Martin, Rochester, Kent, England."

Fiestas in La Mata ?
Q.  "Anyone know if there's any fiestas in La Mata in October please ? We'll be on holiday in Lamata in October.
Any help appreciated.
Sue, Jim and Kids, Horsham, Sussex, England."

A.  "Hi Sue, Jim and Kids!  Different events occur during the year and usually in the main Church square in La Mata.
Best to look at the Fiestas page on this website for future events, bearing in mind that generally, no-one knows anything officially about the fiestas in LaMata until a few weeks before!
Have a great Fiesta.
Hope this helps.
Margaret, Burnham-On-Sea, Somerset, England."

Is La Mata wheelchair friendly ?
Q. "Can anyone please let me know if La Mata is a good place to take someone in a wheel chair please ? My other half is in a wheelchair for most of the day, so need to take a holiday in the sunshine, somewhere that is "wheelchair friendly".
Any help much appreciated.
Kind regards.
Ken, Werrington, Stoke, England."

A. "Hello Ken, my husband is in a wheelchair nearly all of the day, so it was important for us to find wheel-chair friendly holiday locations, and thankfully, we found La Mata a few years ago and have been staying in the same holiday apartment in La Mata ever since, BUT, you do have to be very careful which part of La Mata you go to, as some of La Mata is very hilly, (for example, Los Leandros), but if you stay within 15 minutes walk of the main La Mata church square, just by Avenida de la Sol, you'll be just fine, in fact, if you stay in any of these map references on the map for La Mata, on the link below, these are all of the flat parts of La Mata, A5, B2, B3, B4, B5, C2 and C3 :
Maps for La Mata.
Have a great holiday, we love La Mata, it's such a  great place for a holiday in the sun.
Alison, Mansfield, Nottingham, England."

Jeffs Bar in La Mata ?
Q. "Hi, I was in La Mata about 4 years ago and accidently found a small bar called Jeffs, I think? (the gentleman running it was certainly called Jeff), the bar was tiny and had a lot of Tottenham Hotspur regalia.
I was briefly back in La Mata last year but couldn't find it. I looked on the "Bars in La Mata" page and it's not mentioned either.
Does anyone have any information? I will be back again in December and would dearly like to find it.
Any help appreciated.
Audrey, Ilford, Essex, England."

A. "Audrey, Jeff's Bar is now called The Hideaway Bar. It's under a block of apartments behind the London Bar between Avenida Francia and Avenida Inglaterra. Find the London Bar and follow the path to the side of it and you will come to the Hideaway bar. Jeff is no longer at the bar, it has new owners (Colin and Phil) and has been refurbished. It's still very popular and a great bar.
Mike, Nazeing, Essex, England."

Language problem in La Mata, on the Costa Blanca ?
Q.  "My family and I are going to visit La Mata on holiday next year, but I am a little worried because we are renting a villa and last year we rented a villa in France and the French were, lets say less than willing to appreciate we knew not a lot of the French language so we struggled all week to communicate which ruined our holiday. People have told me its because I hired a villa and if I had gone to a main hotel in a resort I would have been fine. I am now worried about the language barrier in Spain as we are hiring a villa again. Do you think this will be as much of a problem in La Mata?
Amanda, Welling, Kent, England."

A.  "Hello Amanda, you will have absolutely no problem with the language when you go to La Mata on holiday. The Spanish people in the area will generally speak English and will look on approvingly if you try to speak Spanish.
I'll be going back to La Mata on holiday again, later in the year - La Mata is one of my favourite places in Spain. I usually go there for about 6 weeks at a time early November.
Hope this helps.
Sue, Tonbridge, Kent, England."

A.  "Hi Amanda, as Sue said, you should be o.k. in La Mata, as more and more people speak English in the shops and bars these days. The Spaniards are always pleased if you try a few words and phrases, and you feel so good and pleased when they understand you!
My tip is to have a look at the list of words you see on this site, on the Spanish Language page, just click on the following link for the page Spanish translations. Or learn just one or two important phrases you feel you may need. For example :

Hello = Hola

Do you speak English = Habla ingles

How much is it = Cuanto es

Coffee (with milk) = Cafe (con leche)

Wine please, one white, one red = Vino por favor. uno blanco, uno tinto

A beer = Una Cerveza

The bill please = La cuenta, por favor

Thank you = Gracias

Where are the toilets = Donde estan los servicios

I hope these help.
Best of luck and enjoy your holiday in La Mata.
Margaret, Burnham-On-Sea, Somerset, England."

Launderettes in La Mata ?
Q.  "Anyone know if there are any launderettes in La Mata, if not, where is the nearest.
Thank you
Michael, Stockport, Cheshire, England."

A.  "Good question Michael - we've been going to La Mata on holiday every year for about 6 years and although La Mata has everything else for the holidaymaker, I must say that we've never seen any launderettes in La Mata. Most of the property rentals in La Mata that we've stayed in have all had washing machines - have you checked with the rentals company in La Mata to see if there's a washing machine in the property?
Anyway, have a good holiday.
Kind regards.
Keith and Tina, Thetford, Norfolk, England."

October holiday in La Mata ?
Q.  Hi ya all, Help!! I'm going to la Mata mid October for a holiday for a few weeks and not sure what to pack - boots or flip flops...bikini or jumper .. smart or casual??
Can anyone give me an idea of what the weather will be like, as I've been on to some websites and the temp varies from 16 to 25.
Many thanks,
Joanna, Ashford, Kent, England."

A.  "Hi Joanna, we usually stay for a long let in La Mata from about the end of October until mid-December and have done this every for the last 3 years.  It's not exact, but usually, whatever the weather in the UK is like, you can usually expect it to be 10 degrees warmer on the Costa Blanca.
It's still warm enough in October during the day, 12 mid-day to about 3pm for some sunbathing and swimming in the med.
The weather in November for La Mata can get slightly chilly first thing in the morning and very late at night, but the weather in La Mata in October is very near perfect!
I've always found the weather temperatures on the following link to be quite accurate - Weather In La Mata
Have an excellent holiday in La Mata.
Dave and Sue, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England."

A.  "Hi Joanna, that link above, given by Dave and Sue is a good one, which I use as well, but also, in case you didn't notice, if you would like to see a 10 day forecast showing the weather in La Mata, which I've always found quite accurate - just click on the following link Weather in La Mata.
hope this helps.
Jayne, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England."

Property prices in La Mata ?
Q. "Please could you help with how the prices of properties are achieved, I'm looking for 2 bed apartments in lamata near the beach, I find it all confusing, I want a 2 bed apartment in La Mata, with terrace, top floor private roof terrace, not too many apartments, near to beach, pool if possible.
John, Southampton, Hampshire, England."

A. "John, don't know know how long you've been looking for properties for sale in La Mata, but in 2008, I was looking as well, but got confused when trying to do it on my own, so I checked on the property for sale link on this site, then got in touch with the agents listed, I had my ideal property in La Mata within 2 months. The property agents were very good and took care of all of the paperwork.
Some people keep setting themselves up for disappointment, by persistently searching for the 'property bargain' that they keep hearing about in the papers or on the TV, but doesn't actually exist!!  Be realistic in what you're searching and the price you're willing to buy at and you'll be successful at finding a great property in La Mata.
Good luck - you've chosen a great place - La Mata is still very Spanish.
Steve, Preston, Lancashire, England."

Public swimming pools in la Mata ?
Q.  "Can anybody tell me if there's any apartments or hotels in Lamata with swimming pools open to the public in May?
My son and his family are going to La Mata on holiday then, however, the apartment swimming pool where they are staying will be closed then, it only opens from June to September!!!!!
Can anyone advise where there may be a pool they will be able to take their children to?
Many thanks.
Anne and Bob, Wythenshawe, Manchester, England."

A.  "Hello Anne and Bob, When we first started having holidays in Lamata back in 2001, we found that when we went over there, in April, May, or October, it was warm enough most days for a swim, but found that, like you, the swimming pools were only open from June to September!!!  However, in 2003, very good friends of ours that had good experiences of Lamata explained that if you book holiday apartments in Parque Mar 5 or Parque Mar 6,  you can be guaranteed that the swimming pools will be open, as they're open all year-round. So, we now spend our spring and autumn holidays in Lamata at Parque Mar 5 or Parque Mar 6.
We love Lamata, it's an excellent place for a holiday, and if you haven't done so already, check out the bars and restaurants in and around the main Church square or the bars and restaurants in Avenida de los Europeos (if you have a problem finding Avenida de los Europeos on a map, it's one of the only roads that goes straight through Lamata, straight from the coastal road, which is the N332, straight to the beach) - there's an excellent choice in both of these areas.
Good luck and perhaps you can let us know how you get on with it.
Kathy and Jim, Otley, West Yorkshire, England."

Things to do in La Mata ?
Q.  "On the "things to do in La Mata" page, horse riding in La Mata is mentioned. Does anyone know where this takes place and how to find more information please ?
Bev, Roxton, Bedfordshire, England."

A.  "Hello Bev, I went to the horse riding place just by the salt lakes at La Mata last year and it was quite good. I've not experienced a lot of horse riding on the Costa Blanca so have nothing there to compare it with, but it was a good days activities for my teenage daughter and myself.
It's called El Refugio (in English it's "The Refuge") and you can usually contact them on +34 96 672 5672.
Hope it all works out good for you there. Perhaps you can email back to this page after you've been, to give more information about it ?
Julie and Amy, Hastings, East Susses, England."

Transferring photos from a compact flash card to CD-R or DVD in La Mata?
Q.  "Hi, We are coming on holiday for May of this year and I take many many photographs, could anyone please inform me if there is any place where I could transfer pictures from a compact flash card to CD - R or DVD. This would be helpful to estimate the number and size of compact flash cards to bring with me.
Thank you
Roger, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England."

A.  "Hello Roger, Just seen your request on looking for somewhere to download your photos to a CD-R or DVD while on holiday in La Mata and as luck would have it, we've been back a couple of days and still have the piece of paper (you see here), from one of the local internet cafes in La Mata called Mundo Locutorio, they're in Calle Mayor, 67, TorreLaMata and over many years of holidays in apartment rentals in La Mata, they've always downloaded my films onto CD's for me.
Including the CD, the total cost for downloading the photos onto CD's is usually 2.50 euros.
There's a really helpful guy in there who speaks a little English by the name of Angel, (pronounced Ankhell), he will know what to do when you ask, but he's only in the internet cafe from 10am to 2.30pm Monday to Friday.
It's just down the road from the lamata Church square, a few 100 yards on the left, going a little of the way from the square to the street market, map reference 5B on the link below
Map of Lamata
Not sure how this works, but I've asked lamatainformation to include the map reference and the piece of paper that the internet cafe give out for their details I've scanned into the pc and emailed as an attachment, so I hope they can include them.
(** Note from, as you can see Steve, we've included them and for anyone else thinking of emailing photos, scanned images, text, links to other pages on this website, etc, just email them all to us at and we'll do all the rest).
Try and take some photos of the scenery around the salt lakes if you can, the beach and also the sunset!!  You do get some fantastic sunsets in La Mata!!
Hope this helps.
Steve and family, Enfield, Middlesex, England."

Weather in La Mata for February ?
Q. "Hello, We are renting a holiday apartment in La Mata for 4 weeks next February, never been before, could anyone tell me what clothes we will need for that time of year? and how cool or warm it will be.
Linda, Clitheroe, Lancashire, England."

A. "Well, it will be warmer than the UK for sure! In my experience the weather can be anything from summer tops and even a bikini, to a jumper or winter coat (well it is winter!). In general, the days are warm (t-shirt and cardigan), but in the early morning and at night it can be a bit chilly (coat). I would also recommend slippers for inside your holiday apartment as the tiled floors can be a bit cool. It sounds strange, but it's normally warmer outside your property than inside, so get out and about and enjoy the area. Enjoy the break from the UK winter freeze!!
There's some excellent information for the weather in La Mata, on the link below :

Bill, Pickering, North Yorkshire, England.

What are the different areas of La Mata ?
Q.  "Am looking to book one of the properties to rent in La Mata, but am not familiar with the individual areas within La Mata, could someone please mention what they are please ?
Helen, Clifton, Nottingham, England."

A.  "Hello Helen, we've been holidaying in La Mata every year for the last 11 years, so will probably know most of the areas in La Mata, there's Cabo Cervera, Cabo Mar, Cala del Moro, Los Lomas, Torre Blanca, Torre del Moro, Playa de la Mata, Pinomar, Aguas Nuevas (although this is on the border of La Mata and Torrevieja), Lomas del Mar, Los Leandros, Parquemar, Dunas de La Mata, Vinamar and Molino Blanco. If I've missed any out, perhaps other viewers can let us know of them.
You've chosen a great place for a property to rent. Walk along the wooden promenade by the beach in the late evenings (between 9pm to 11pm), in the warmer months (April to November), there's usually a fantastic, friendly atmosphere there.
Hope this helps.
Paul and Carol, Alfreton, Derbyshire, England."

A.  "Hi Helen, I think Paul and Carol have covered all the areas of La Mata that I could think of except for two areas that haven't been named, which are Torreblanca and Maravillas, Torreblanca is at the southern end of La Mata, on the way to Aquas Nuevas.  For Maravillas, if you were going from the Parque Molino del Agua (by Parque mar 5), towards the Church square in La Mata, and go slightly to your left, Maravillas is one of the first areas you come to.
I think between us, we've named all of the different areas of La Mata, unless anyone else can think of any others?
Sue, Warminster, Wiltshire, England."

Where in La Mata is this ?
Q. "Myself and my partner are coming to La Mata on holiday in October for the first time.
I have heard many good reports about La Mata, but I am a little bit confused.
I have rented a private holiday appartment in Lamata for the week, and have been given the address. I have had a look on the maps included in the website, but cant seem to locate the area.
I am unsure as to which area it is based in.  The address is Calla Guadalajara, Lomas Del Mar, La Mata, Torreveija.
Could someone please point me in the right direction as to where this area is on the map...I like to know exactly where I am on a map, so I can find my surroundings more easily.
Hope you can help.
Many Thanks
Kelly, Belfast, Co.Antrim, N. Ireland."

A. "Hello Kelly, Calle Guadalajara is in C1 and D1 on the link below for the La Mata maps

Hope this has helped you and don't worry, La Mata is a great place for a holiday.

Where is Altos de La Bahia in Torrevieja please ?
Q.  "Hi all, just looking around for properties for sale in Torrevieja and have heard good things about Altos de La Bahia.  Could someone please let me know precisely where it is please?
Kind regards.
Tina and Keith, Manchester, Lancs, England."

A.  "Hi Tina and Keith, I think you'll find that Altos de La Bahia is in La Mata, so to find Altos de La Bahia in La Mata, just go along the N332 from the Alicante direction towards Torrevieja and turn left at the roundabout in La Mata where the Chinese restaurante Xu Palace is, into Carreter Del Torrejon, then keep driving along until you get to where the road inclines upwards, keep going and you'll see the Deutsch bank on the left, a couple of minutes drive more on the left and you'll see the Magani Restaurante on the corner, just 2 roads further on the left from the Magani restaurante and past Calle San Sebastian on the left you will find Altos de La Bahia.
To see on a map where Altos de La Bahia is, just look at map reference D1 on the following link for Maps for La Mata.
When friends of ours were looking for a property for sale in La Mata, initially they were looking for a property for sale in Los Leandros (down Calle San Sebastian), they looked around the area very thoroughly and finally bought in Altos de La Bahia and have been very happy there.
Hope this helps and good luck with your property purchase.

Where is Parque Mar 5 in La Mata ?
Q. "Anyone know where Parque Mar 5 is in LaMata please ?  I'm renting a holiday apartment in LaMata and the apartment is in Parque Mar 5, or is it ParqueMar 5 ?
If it's any help, on giving directions, I'll be going to the holiday rental in LaMata from Alicante airport.
Any help appreciated.
Steve, Leegomery, Shropshire, England."

A. "Hi Steve, You don't say which part of Parque Mar 5 in La Mata the holiday apartment is, but we know Parque Mar 5 very well, as I and all of our family love it there, and spend our holidays there every year, and by the way, no-one seems to know whether it's officially Parque Mar 5 or ParqueMar 5 ?  But anyway, if you're coming from Alicante airport to La Mata, (signposted for TorreLaMata), just keep going along the N332 from the airport, turning off left at the roundabout for La Mata, where it's signposted TorreLaMata, (towards the beach), into Calle Virgen del Carmen, go to the end of this road to the T junction, turn right and keep going until you see a no entry sign, turn right, turn first left, keep driving over several junctions until you get to the end of this road at the T junction, turn right, turn first left, follow the road round and up a slight hill, on the immediate right, is Vinamar 7, (I and my family stayed at one of the holiday apartments in Vinamar 7 a couple of years ago, but none of us liked them, as the swimming pool isn't open all year, unlike the holiday apartments in Parque Mar 5, where the swimming pools are open all year!!), anyway, if you go a few 100 yards further along this road, you'll see Parque Mar 5 on your right.
Hope this helps.

Where is Torreblanca Marina XIII ?
Q. "Could someone please help me to locate Torreblanca Marina XIII in La Mata? Looking to rent a house there and need to know how child friendly the area is?
Many thanks.
Galina, Paisley, Renfrewshire, England."

A. "The area of Torreblanca is to the south of La Mata and is set up higher than the main part of the old town and beach. It's also located on the other side of a busy coastal road. I believe it to be a nice area, but a bit out of town and it can be a bit of a hot trek up hill back from the beach, shops and bars, as Torreblanca Marina XIII can be quite hilly in parts. La Mata, itself, is a great place for families as it has a long and wide sandy beach and lots of tasty restaurants. I would definitely recommend La Mata for a family holiday, but would suggest staying in a place that is more on the flat and closer to town, generally, anywhere within 15 minutes walk from the main Church square in La Mata, which is in map reference B4, which you can see by clicking the following link for the map of La Mata - map of La Mata.
Hope this helps.

Winter holiday in La Mata ?
Q.  "I am having a holiday in La Mata soon and have not actually been to La Mata before, I would like to know what the local amenities are like there, also if anyone can recommend any good bars and restaurants in La Mata.  Are there any good shops in La Mata or around the area?
I would also like to know if most places are open in Torrevieja at that time of year, Are there any special Christmas markets or events at that time of year?
Angela, Rainham, Essex, U.K."

A.  "Hi Angela, most restaurants, bars and shops in La Mata are open in winter.
Try and base a lot of your evening activities around the main Church square in La Mata - that's where the atmosphere is excellent at that time of the year.
We've been to La Mata on holiday every year for 4 years, at different times of the year, including a winter holiday in La Mata and we've always had a great, relaxing holiday.
Have a great holiday.
Dave and Heather, Dartford, Kent, England."
