The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
Alicante as a province, governed by its namesake city, is an area of eastern Spain that enjoys the best all-round climate in this vast country. Both modernised yet abundant with tradition and rich history dating back to ancient times there is ample to do and see for most visitors.
The city itself is well worth visiting for the enjoyment of its buzzing marina with a great selection of restaurants, cafes and bars to the architecture typified by such examples as the Santa Barbara and San Fernando Castles, in addition to several noteworthy cathedrals / churches.
Art and archaeology are well served by the various museums – from the renowned MARQ Archeological Museum or the Lucentum, to the contemporary works held in the Asegurada Museum which, amongst others, exhibits Picasso and Sempere.
Alicante has some impressive beaches from the quaint to the awesome 6km long San Juan.
Food in this region is typified by the widely available paella dishes, which nowadays comes in a variety of combos. Locally-caught seafood is always a feature in both tapas (ready-made, delicious bar appetisers displayed in many café/bars of the area) and also the many restaurants which can be found here. Other regional foods include the delicious, crunchy Turron – rich with the toasted nut flavour of locally grown Almendras. Of course, oranges and lemons abound here – the fruit groves stretching away into the foot-hills of the mountainous backdrop of the coastal routes.
Inland, Alicante offers many exciting possibilities for those who enjoy discovering new places for themselves and includes the mountain villages of Alcoy, Serra de Mariola, Beniali, and Guadalest with its panoramic lake views and chilling Museum of Torture!
Other inland destinations include Elche famous for its petrified forest, palm trees and also dates. The province's second largest town it boasts the wonderful Huerta del Cura park with a myriad of palm species, cactus and other plants. Nearby Falls of Algar make another interesting stop-off and photo-taking opportunity.
Near to the tourist-mecca of Benidorm is the Terra Mitica theme park with its many adrenalin-soaring rides and other attractions. Also, the Mundomar water park is close by.
Surely one of Spain's most idyllic holiday destinations, Moraira is nestled in a most stunning coastal hot-spot with its majestic backdrop of the Serra de Seldetes which plunges down into the med from the giddy heights of Cambre del Sol.
Most notably, it is surprisingly unspoilt for such a popular, if not a little undiscovered, resort. This for the mainpart is down to a ban on high-rise development, thus ensuring that the built areas sit attractively in their natural habitat largely made up of sub-tropical species, such as palms, with the protected pines offering cool shady areas at frequent intervals.
Originally a fishing village, akin to the more reknowned Calpe which is a short but scenic coastal drive away, Moraira retains its Spanish culture amidst the influx of pan-european nationalities, from the many British, who have made this their home, to Dutch, German and French all largely enjoying a multi-cultural existence in admirable harmony. Thus, lovers of both indigenous or ethnic foods will not be disappointed as many tastes are well catered for.
From the sought after El Portet beach, first discovered by early-civilisation traders from the eastern Med to the glorious Ifach rock at Calpe with its iconic outline, the coastline offers spectacular vistas at each turn. The focal point in the centre is the castle tower of Moraira, of medieval origin but bearing a completion date in mid 18th century, its door proudly adorned with the Borbon family crest.
A typical Spanish market is held each Friday, easily found in the central car-park where alongside sun-ripened fruit and veg from the locality, there is a wide assortment of interesting merchandise offered from traditionally crafted leather and wicker-work, to fashion items of a more modern nature.
Restaurants, cafes and bars abound along and within this coast and discovering a new one every day can be just one of the many ways to enjoy this envigorating yet relaxing resort.
