San Miguel de Salinas, located between Torrevieja and Murcia, San Miguel de Salinas is the highest town in the comarca.
Its area (54 km²) descends from the mountain with many streams and gullies leading to the plain, known as El Llano, where the salt
lakes are found. Local roads connect the town with Orihuela, Bigastro, Torrevieja, and other towns in the area. From Alicante and
Cartagena, the town can be accessed via the A-7 (E15) and AP-7 then the CV-940 and CV-941.
Unlike the many classic tourist sites in the area, San Miguel has retained its Spanish character. A short drive or bike ride
away you will find great areas for hiking and birdwatching around the salt lake Laguna Salada de Torrevieja and further into
the country lake Embalse de la Pedrera. San Miguel has several very good restaurants, including Las Cuevas (caves) which as
the name suggests is located in a cave in the mountain.
