The Wedding

Our last stop on our tour of the Costa Blanca, which had so far taken in Javea, Cartagena and Valencia was Alicante.

On route to the port town we made a quick detour to the very pretty Santa Pola, which has a very nice marina, a long, inviting beach, and an abundance of shell shops! Only a short drive away towards Gran Alacant is the Santa Pola Lighthouse which has a fabulous skywalk peaking out over the headland, offering incredible views of the coastline. Well worth a trip.

It does Alicante a huge disservice just to see it as the airport city of Costa Blanca, it has so much to offer than that. We found it to be a lively, fun port town, complete with towering castle, marina, beach, and a quaint old quarter. We dropped off the hire car and spent a lovely couple of days winding down at the end of our break. One surprise was the quantity and quality of the vegetarian restaurants, which is always a good sign.

All of Alicante is walk-able and easily explorable in a couple of days…
