The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
The region is awash with natural beauty, including its golden Mediterranean coast, mountains and rolling citrus groves, and with two notable salt lakes that shape the ecosystem: Santa Pola - adjacent to El Pinet, is a nature reserve full of migratory birds and flamingos; and the Mar Menor salt lake, near Murcia, is the largest in Europe. With its fertile lowlands, wealth of vegetable produce and abundant citrus groves, the region is often referred to as the “Market Garden of Europe” and the “Gastronomic Centre of Spain”.
The Costa Blanca enjoys one of the best climates in Europe. November through February is the mildest period, and the spring and summer seasons are long: warming speedily in March, peaking during August-September, and cooling down during October and November. As a by-product of its environment, the southern Costas have been described by the World Health Organization as one of the healthiest environments in which to live, or visit, in Europe.
The coast’s beauty is outstanding, boasting unspoilt beaches protected by pine forest parkland and subtropical citrus groves. Many of the numerous white sandy beaches, such as La Marina, have been awarded the EEC Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety, as have the Alicante and Santa Pola marinas. Bustling fishing villages, spectacular haciendas, numerous marinas and an excellent selection of championship golf courses dot the coastal landscape.
As well as the natural splendour, historical and cultural excursions, the area offers a significant range of activities to suit every appetite, such as: horse riding, golf on numerous championship courses, bowls, freshwater, coastal and sea fishing, scuba diving, water parks, other theme parks, go-karting, sailing, nature reserves, and shopping in any of the many colourful markets and bustling municipal centres. All of this is within a 30 minute drive of El Pinet, and other memorable day trips can be enjoyed slightly further afield, at great cities such as Murcia and Benidorm on the coast, and the numerous rustic towns and villages inland.
El Pinet beach sits at the foot of ‘Residencial El Pinet’ – within a short walk. The beach is reached by passing the southern edge of the Santa Pola Nature Reserve and provides magnificent sea views beyond the salt lagoons. Most amenities are provided in the nearby traditional Spanish village of La Marina, which has a selection of bars, shops and restaurants, pharmacy, news agents and banks. The village also has a tourist information office, health centre, post room, internet café, cycle hire shop, and travel agents where daily sightseeing trips can be booked.
Just beyond La Marina village is ‘La Marina Urbanization’, which is a 5-minute drive from Residencial El Pinet. La Marina Urbanization provides additional amenities and holds markets on Thursdays and Sundays. There is a market every day somewhere in the area, offering an experience and potential bargains - such as the Santa Pola market which, for example, offers quality leather shoes at a fraction of the sterling price.
Just a few kilometres off the Costa Blanca mainland, near Santa Pola, lays the small and tranquil island of Tabarca. The island is little more than a mile long, 300 metres wide and car free. It is a protected marine reserve, declared a Zone of Special Protection for Birds by the European Union, with varied marine wildlife. The tiny island has become a popular day-trip destination, with its quiet fishing village offering an old fort, numerous fresh seafood restaurants, a rocky beach with clear turquoise water, several coves and tidal pools ideal for bathing. There are many excursions to the island from Alicante, Santa Pola and Torrevieja.
Elche, also known as the ‘City of Palms’, is approximately 14km from El Pinet. Strolling through its narrow streets you will discover a wealth of culture, impressive ancient architecture and a fascinating historical centre. Such is the town’s historic significance, UNESCO inscribed the town as custodian of two World Heritage sites: ‘Misteri d’Elx’ - the annual mystery play of Elche; and ‘Palmeral d'Elx’ - a landscape of groves and date palms with elaborate irrigation systems dating from when the Muslim city of Elche was erected, towards the end of the tenth century AC.
