Torrevieja Fun Fair
Families on holiday in sunny Torrevieja don’t need to worry about asking friends, or finding a babysitter to look after the kids in the evenings, as the city offers a variety of great activities that all the family can enjoy when the sun goes down, including Torrevieja Fun Fair. It is very seldom Spanish parents will leave their kids at home when having a night out, and partly due to many of them having an afternoon siesta, you will see Spanish families having drinks and a meal well into the night. The Spanish love children and tend to go out in large family groups including grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins, all congregating on bar or restaurant terraces enjoying a few tapas and catching up on family gossip. Being a way of life here, bar/restaurant owners go out of their way to make sure the kids are having fun and are always greeted by the little ones as if they were a member of the family.
A pleasant way to begin your evening is by taking a stroll along Torrevieja’s beach promenade (Paseo Maritimo Juan Aparicio) where you can sip a few cocktails in one of the many bars or restaurants while watching the evening crowds go by. If you are out for a meal, there is a superb choice of eateries along the promenade including a Burger King if you don’t fancy a large sit down meal. You can do a bit of shopping or treat the kids to a delicious home made ice cream in the popular Ramon Servant Ice Cream Parlour.
At the beginning of the promenade where the main pier is, you can enjoy a wonder through Torrevieja’s Night Market before heading to the lively Torrevieja Fun Fair. This place will take you back to your youth with age old favourites like the Ferris Wheel, Dodgem Cars, Carousel, Octopus, Flying Swings, Haunted House and a colourful little Roller Coaster. There are slides, climbing frames and soft play areas for the little ones to burn off some energy, and the whole family can compete at the various games of chance where you really have to be rubbish if you don’t go home with at least one cuddly toy 🙂
