    villa joyosa

    by quartinb Updated Feb 14, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    already finished a small page of this wonderfull town just a couple of miles from Benidorm. villajoyosa. if you care for a day at the beach, and if you are close just go there and have a really vacation day, just doing nothing.
    if not, well, the path side by side with the sea, is very handsom, with the collourfull houses all aligned. know that there are some historic features to go ( i didn't ) and, yes, a chocolat museum...yummmyummm

    alicant

    some 50 km from Benidorm the town of Alicante. to get away from all the fuss of benidorm and if you have car, drive towards a beautifull town, mostly at night. a lovely marina and a pedestrian promenade side by side with it. a shopping mall following and you reach the main beach of Alicante with a great view over the moorish castle and the historic site. lots of "esplanadas" on the promenade gives you time to rest after a stroll downtown, with lovely and clean buildings and a very calm city.

    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.

    Calpe

    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!

    Sella

    In the mountains near Benidorm you find the little village of Sella. Its a very small village and the views over the mountains are breathtaking. There are also a few restaurants where you can eat real nice tipycal Spanish food.

    If you are on this beach you can't imagine that behind you is one of the biggest holiday resorts in the world. To get there take bus 12 or 41 to finestrat and walk over the mountains. It is a walk of half an hour but worthwile. You can also go by car if you come from direction Benidorm turn left at the casino of Vila Joiosa.

    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.

    Villajoyosa

    This place is famous for its houses that are painted in bright lively colors. I like bright colors so I really enjoyed it, but even if you don't like bright colors its a nice place to visit. The easiest and fastest way is to go by ferrocarril (local train).For more information visit my Villajoyosa page !!
