The somewhat higher reservoir, adjacent to the village of Torremendo, is a beautifully protected hilly nature area with lots of almond trees, pine forests and the hamlet Rebate with the Spanish family restaurant of the same name. There are also possibilities for walking, cycling, horseback riding and quad biking, but also by just having a look and admiring nature. You can drive around it and that takes about half an hour by car. The water is always beautiful blue-turquoise because of the crystals that are in the water, and in the evening you can enjoy the many birds and a beautiful sunset.
The relief of the area is formed by the plains of the Segura River, which has its origin deep in the interior of the province of Murcia. The Segura is useful for irrigated agriculture, which consists mainly of citrus orchards, artichokes, broccoli and olive groves. The Segura ends in Guardamar in the Mediterranean Sea on the Costa Blanca. The surrounding landscape is characterized by contrasting droughts in mountainous areas with a number of dry crops.
