The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
Alicante in Spanish or Alacant (in Valencian) is a province of eastern Spain, in the southern part of the Valencian Community. It is bordered by the provinces of Murcia on the southwest, Albacete on the west, Valencia on the north, and the Mediterranean Sea on the east. The province is named after its capital, the city of Alicante.
The province is mountainous, specially to the north and west, whereas it is mostly flat to the south, in the Vega Baja del Segura area; the most elevated points in the province are Aitana (1,558 m), Puig Campana (1,410 m), Moncabrer (1,389 m), Carrascal de Alcoy (1,354 m), Maigmó (1,296 m), Sierra de Crevillente (835 m) and El Montgó (753 m). All of these peaks are a part of the Subbaetic Range.
The coast extends from Cabo de la Nao (Nao Cape) in the north to almost reaching the Mar Menor (Minor Sea) in the south. With regard to water sources, due to the dry rain regime there are no major rivers, but mostly ramblas (dry rivers which fill in with water when torrential rains occur).
The only remarkable streams are the Vinalopó, Serpis, and, specially, the river Segura. Other minor seasonal creeks (some completely dried out in summer) are Girona, Algar, Amadorio and Ebo.
There are remarkable saline wetlands and marshlands along the coast such El Fondó and the former wetlands and now salt evaporation ponds in Santa Pola and Torrevieja. All of them are key Ramsar Sites which make the Alicante province of high relevance for both migratory and resident seabirds and waterbirds.
Physical map of Alicante provinceImportant coastal dunes are present in the Guardamar area which were planted with thousands of pine trees during the 19th century in order to protect the ville from the dunes advancing, which has created now an area of remarkable ecologic value.
The climate is strikingly diverse for such a reduced area. Three major areas can be cited
Most of the province belongs to a Semiarid climate. It roughly goes along the coastal plain from Vila Joiosa through the southernmost border (cities included here are, amongst others, Alicante, Elche, Orihuela and Torrevieja). Summers are very long, hot to very hot and very dry, winters are cool to mild and its most prominent feature is very scarce precipitation, typically below 300mm. per year and most likely to happen during spring and autumn. The reasons for this lack of precipitation is mostly the marked Rain shadow effect caused by hills to the west of the Alicante province (and, to a lesser degree, those in the northern part of the province which, in turn, enhance the inverse Orographic lift effect around Cabo de la Nao). Most of its few rainy days happen during Autumn and Spring.
Situated on the Orihuela Costa coastline the beautiful resort of La Zenia is a popular location for holidaymakers visiting the southern Costa Blanca, Spain. Also an often chosen spot for a holiday home in the sun La Zenia has expanded in recent years to satisfy the needs of those seeking a new life in the sun, or simply a holiday retreat in sunnier climes.
Located between the resorts of Playa Flamenca and Cabo Roig on the N-332 coastal road, La Zenia has a lovely sandy beach, a first class hotel and a decent range of facilities. A huge new commercial centre being developed near to the Motorway exit will further enhance the range of facilities available to visitors.
Beside the roundabout on the N-332 you will find a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants including the famous 'Paddy's Point' claimed to be the first Irish Pub in the area.
If you have time be sure to spend an hour or two and take the cliff walk to Cabo Roig, this is a very pleasant way to spend a hot summers evening and you can enjoy the cooling sea breeze whilst taking in some breathtaking views across the Mediterranean along the coast to La Manga.
If you are in La Zenia on a Saturday do not forget to stroll along to the fabulous market at Playa Flamenca, a great place to purchase fresh, locally grown produce and to pick up some gifts and bargains to take home with you.
