The Roman Porutus Illcitanues is a popular seaside city with almost 15 km of fine sandy beaches. Santa Pola's past has always been intimately linked to the sea, and the sea has determined its economy, culture, gastronomy and the identity of its people. In ancient times it was Elche's port and managed to build up one of the biggest fishing fleets of the entire Mediterranean. The Salinas (salt-flats) are another interesting aspect of Santa Pola. Exploitation of the salt-flats began at the end of the 19th century and they extended over an 880 hectare area that produced 100,000 tons of salt per year. The area is now a Nature Reserve where many migratory birds pass the winter. The reserve is also the natural habitat of several aquatic species such as albatrosses and herons. In addition to the marine nature, the are also includes a variety of beautiful beaches, including the Playa del Tamarit. On the other Santa Pola beaches you can play beach volleyball, beach football, hire jet skis.
