Torre La Mata or simply La Mata is a small town located 5 km northeast of Torrevieja along the Costa Blanca, in the province of Alicante in southeast Spain. The town is often regarded as a dormitory suburb of Torrevieja. Many of the residents are expatriates from the United Kingdom, Germany and other northern European countries. Torre La Mata is renowned by tourists and locals for having an unspoilt Spanish charm, due to the lack of high-rise hotels and local affluency.
