  • Beaches

    Alicante Things to Do

    The basic sight of Alicante certainly is the sea. The beach is sandy. To bathe in April is still early. Therefore I have only admired an evening view at the sea. Lights of hotels and restaurants were romantically reflected in waves... You can watch my 4 min 26 sec Video Alicante part 2 out of my Youtube channel or here on VT.

  • Levante Beach

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Benidorm Things to Do

    Levante is the most "in" of the beaches, and where everything happens. If you don't mind sharing a square meter of sand with five people, dispute the narrow corridors (if some) between the chairs to reach the water, and sleep... when possible, then you'll be happy in Benidorm. Tedium is the only forbidden thing in place

  • La Lonja de la Seda

    I visited quite by chance this Lonja in Valencia, called Lonja de la Seda (Silk Exchange).

Some even say that is the second in importance in Spain, only after Museo del Prado.It lodges, not only an exhaustive collection of Valencia painters such as Joaquin Sorolla or the artist of the baroque Jose de Ribera (known in Naples, the city where he knew the success to his work, as Il Spanoleto because he was...

    Another reason, and another attraction, of the region is the variety and quality of the golf available to the golfer. A pleasant and not too difficult par 72 course is La Marquesa Golf And Country Club. Opened in 1989 and set in a small valley in Quesada this course is typical of the many that have attracted golfers to Spain. Within the region are...

  • Benidorm

    Mention the Costa Blanca to most tourists, particularly British, and the one destination they will all have heard of is Benidorm. Despite having a reputation in the past of being the type of place where the excesses of mass tourism were very much on display in a negative way the town really is a mix of old time charm and modern convenience.Sure,...

  • Enjoy The Local Cuisine

    I would never go on a holiday and spend time seeking out food that I eat every day at home. Part of the attraction of travelling abroad is to try new things and that certainly includes the food.Mention Spain and most people will know that paella is a traditional dish of the country. What is nice is that different areas of Spain have there own local...

  • Aqualandia Tickets

    Although the entrance ticket covers all the rides and pools in the park it can be quite expensive, particularly if you have a large family.Paying on the door is not the wisest way to go. There are numerous outlets around the region, even some in supermarkets, that offer discount vouchers. When you consider that most of these vouchers offer savings...

  • Aqualandia

    During the heat of the summer months if you want to cool off and have some fun as well its worth visiting one of the waterparks in the area.Possibly the best of the parks and a good way to spend the whole day is at Aqualandia on the outskirts of Benidorm. A large wave pool which is gently sloping, like a beach, is near to the entrance and there are...

    more
  • Sand Sculptures

    Worthy of a tip in their own right are the sand sculptures on Guardamar beach. The creators of these sculptures put a lot of time and effort crafting some amazingly detailed scenes.Some of the scenes are quite intricate and are obviously a labour of love as it would appear that the only payment they receive are the tips left by admiring travellers.

  • Reina Sofia Park

    A couple of blocks back from Guardamar beach lies this attractive park. It is nicely laid out and you can picnic in the shade or take a gentle stroll around the small lakes which are patrolled by peacocks and other waterbirds.

  • Guardamar Del Segura

    Around half an hour from Alicante airport and half way between Torrevieja and Santa Pola lies Guardamar. This coastal town is one of the lesser known resorts and has become a personal favourite with my family.The excellent beach is around 7 kilometres long. The sand is very clean and the water, which can be great for beach boarding, is well...

  • Beaches

    Most people who travel to the Costa Blanca for their annual break will spend some time on a beach.There is enough coastline in the region to spread yourself out on a relatively deserted stretch of sand even in the summer. All the beaches we went to were very well looked after, clean, and most had toilet and washing facilities, perfect for those...

  • Chulilla

    Chulilla is really a photogenic little town: its whitewashed houses around the church and that impressive rock in the background make for a great picture or simply for excellent moments of contemplation and awe. Chulilla is situated in the region known as High Túria. Before the river that irrigates Valencia and its fruitful orchards is tamed and...

  • Castillion of the Plain

    Although the provincial capital is located near the beach, is scenically surrounded by orange groves and has quiet a bunch of historical buildings, it can hardly be described as a tourist destination, as it is more oriented to its flourishing industry (chiefly tiles and construction materials). The region is indeed home to world leading companies...
