    L'Alfas del Pi street market

    On the route to Polop you will travel through this small town of L'Alfa´s del Pi which was at one time a fortified village to protect itself from pirates. The word Alfas is Moorish and means "sown land" as the tradional economy here was the growing of fruit and almonds. Another attraction in the town is the street market every friday.

    Calpe

    Sadly I didn't make it to this town although we did try to find a boat trip here from Benidorm without success however!

    Calpe is well know for it's many seafood restaurants and also for the large rock that divides the shoreline in two. This being the largest rock in the Mediterranean at an impressive 322 metres high. Calpe also boasts 11 km of sandy beaches with quiet coves and also the Cueva dels Coloms which is a freshwater cave only accessible by sea? And was a favourite summertime haunt in the 30's for none other than Ernest Hemmingway!

    A view from La Nucia over Polop

    La Nucia is the town between L'Alfas and Polop and looks a bit of an industrial town, but just outside of the town is a large supermarket that offers an amazing selection of food and drink products from all over Europe.

    A view of Polop from the cemetary

    A few km out of Benidorm nestling comfortably against the mountains on a hilltop is the small town of Polop. Polop has many narrow streets which wend their way from the main square where you find the famous Font dels Xorrets which has 221 fountains up to the top of the hill where there is a cemetary.
