The sunny climate guarantees a better wellbeing, which is ideal for people who are unfortunate to suffer from asthma, arthritis and skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis. Torrevieja situated next to the sea in the South of the Costa Blanca benefits from 320 days of sunshine each year with the average temperature ranging from 18-28 degrees Celsius.
It is no wonder Torrevieja has been voted by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places in the world to live.

Pine forest and dunes of Guardamar
The sediments deposited by the Segura River at its mouth, added to the sand from the sea, originated a set of dunes that, in the nineteenth century, were moving at a rate of between 2 and 8 m per year. To stop their progress, in the early twentieth century more than 600 000 trees were planted, mainly Aleppo pine, creating a forest area of 800 hectares. Thus, the movement of dunes was stopped, creating an extraordinary scenic environment today called the Pinada, or the Alfonso XIII Park Parque Alfonso XIII, Guardamar de Segura, Alicante.
