The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
Alicante is an ancient city with many modern facilites and attractions. Alicante marina has many restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and is home to numerous yachts and motor cruisers. It has a modern shopping area housing many designer goods.
A stroll along the Esplanade is well worth a try, if only to observe the locals enjoying the concerts held there and to enjoy the market stalls which are open in the evenings.
About 40 minutes to the north is Benidorm, home to the skyrise hotels and also to TerraMitica and Terra Natura theme parks and to Mundomar sealife centre and Aqualandia waterpark. A futher 40 minutes drive will take you to the cosmopolitan city of Valencia.
To the south, again about 40 minutes, is Torrevieja, well known for it's large ex-pat community and building sites. It is worth a visit though to sample the seafront restaurants and coffee bars!
There are also the nature reserves around the salt lakes at Torrevieja and Santa Pola and at El Clot, on the outskirts of Gran Alacant itself.
Gran Alacant is an up and coming area - it is well served by bars and restaurants of many nationalities.
There is a local market held on a Thursday, Spanish and English supermarkets , and a good range of other shops, a pharmacy, clinic (inc. doctor and dentist), tourist information centre, banks (with cash dispensers) and bakers.
A few minutes by car takes you to a large shopping centre with yet more shops, restaurants and bars and the local bus takes you to the beach at Arenales (Carabassi) and further afield Santa Pola where there is a more shopping and a marina.
There is a regular and cheap bus service to both Santa Pola and Alicante. Look out for a small road train which travels around Gran Alacant. It runs every hour in the summer from 9am to midnight (less siesta time) and goes from the Commercial Centre to the Lighthouse then to Carabassi Beach.
