New cable ski business offers water sports in Torrevieja

Activities include water skiing, wake-boarding and wake-skating The Mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolón paid a visit to the exciting new “La Bocana” cable ski facilities today, accompanied by the centre director, Sergio Martínez. The new water sports activity centre is situated at the east dock, beside the sports arena at the Marina Salinas. The Mayor emphasised that the facility is one of the most modern and sophisticated in the country, offering a wide range of innovative sporting activities that are difficult to find in other coastal areas.
