Are you looking for a fun family trip? How about a boat trip to the pirate island of Tabarca? Tabarca, 400 meters wide and 1,800 meters long, is a small, charming island off the coast of Santa Pola. It is the smallest permanently inhabited island in Spain. It is said that an average of 30 people live there during the year. Other sources speak of an average of 100 inhabitants. The fact is that there are fewer residents in the winter than in the summer. The inhabitants mainly live from tourism and fishing. The island is easily accessible from various ports.
