The beach of the naúfragos (shipwrecked ones) is the one located more to the south of Torrevieja. It is right next to the acequión beach. This beach receives its name bacause it is not protected by any natural means and the boats used to be stranded due to the storms. In the area, a whole recycling industry was created and it was renamed as not, the beach of the shipwrecks.
The beach is about 300 meters long and about 45 meters wide, with fine golden sand. It is a beach with calm waters as long as the wind does not blow very strongly. Its waters are not very clear due to the proximity to the port. It has three watchtowers, a lifeguard in summer, red cross post, an adapted chair, first aid post and connection with public transport on the beach.
This is a very busy beach in summer, reaching 4000 daily visitors. It has showers for the feet, litter bins, volley-ball court, football-beach, bouncy castles in the water (for a fee) in summer, and a children´s play area with slide (free).
THE BEACH DE LOS NAÚFRAGOS IS CATALOGED WITH THE BLUE FLAG THAT DISTINGUISHES THE BEST BEACHES OF THE SPANISH COAST.
From the beach we can see how the ribbon of salt that comes from the salt flats, runs and reaches the port where the boats that go to Europe with the famous Torrevieja salt are loaded. This is a highly recommended point to observe the entry and exit of ships from the seaport.
Bordering one of the sides of the beach we find an artificial breakwater in which it is not uncommon to find fishermen or crab hunters. On the other side of the beach, when the wide area of sand is finished, a narrow sand and rocks begin forming small coves where you can also bathing and enjoy a little more privacy.
