This area is situated on the edge of a natural park with many salt lakes which have a wonderful pink glow most days - great for bird watching. The lakes are very therapeutic making it one of the healthiest places to be in the world. The beaches are endless with safe swimming with lifeguards on some beaches in high season and surfing on the windier days.
The historic cities of Alicante, Cartagena and Elche are nearby.
There are beautiful beaches along this coast the nearest being Guardamar only 6 minutes drive away Its an endless stretch of blue flag beach with lifeguards in peak season. Great too for surfing.There is a large marina at the north end of Guardamar.
There are fishing villages up and down the coast where you can watch the catch coming in in the afternoons. Santa Pola being one. Torrevieja's interesting harbour has a submarine museum and promenade along the water front and beach where there are many restaurants and shops or shop out of town at the Habaneras centre, La Zenia or Carrefoure store 10 minutes from the house. The vibrant town of Alicante just 30 minutes away has many shops,restaurants,bars and a busy port.
The local markets are a must - open early till 2 pm usually. Browse along the stalls picking up spanish bargains and fresh produce. Why not bring home some fresh fish and sizzle on the BBQ in your own garden overlooking the pool.
