Properties in Santa Pola
Santa Pola is a seaside town on the Costa Blanca. In the fourth century BC, the Iberians began trading with the Greeks in the Spanish Santa Pola. In addition, the Romans enlarged the port, which has affected the maritime trade. In the 16th century, the city was plagued by frequent attacks of pirates. On the nearby island of Tabarca there was a hideout for buccaneers. All in all, the invasions ended with the construction of a defensive castle and watchtowers.
Today Santa Pola has about 32 thousand inhabitants. It is a beautifully situated city with beaches, a port and numerous tourist attractions. The close proximity to the airport and other tourist resorts makes Santa Pola a very attractive place to invest in.
Best things to do in Santa Pola
Santa Pola offers wonderful sandy beaches, such as Playa Lisa, which is safe for children because the shallows stretch for tens of meters deep into the sea. The impressive 16th century castle, or El Castillo-Fortaleza is the magnet attracting visitors to Santa Pola. It was designed in 1553 by the Italian engineer Juan Bautista Antonelli. It was to defend the coast against pirate attacks. Despite its beautiful and rich history, the excellent conditions for sunbathing and water sports are the main reasons for tourists to spend a blissful holiday. An unusual attraction of this region are also the salt mines (Salinas de Santa Pola), which have been declared a nature reserve. The view of flamingos and birds of all kinds is a beautiful showcase of the region, just as the huge salt mountains.

Santa Pola's property market has been very stable for several years now. At the same time, thanks to a very large amount of purchases made by buyers from outside of Spain, the number of properties sold is growing year by year. The cities themselves are very positive about the growing number of foreign tourists and people who decide to settle here permanently. Therefore, the forecasts for Santa Pola are positive.
It is predicted that properties located on the Spanish coast and in tourist centres will enjoy the greatest interest. The high rate of return on investment of up to 10.5% (data from the Spanish Central Bank) should be a big incentive for foreign investors.
