Visit beautiful towns in the province of Alicante
Visiting the beautiful towns of the Alicante province, such as Altea, Calpe and Benidorm.
Romantic getaway: Altea.
Visiting its Old Town at sunset, walking through its cobbled streets and having a drink on one of its terraces is a very attractive romantic plan. On the tour you will find special corners, fashion stores and art galleries. You can also get to the view point, which is next to the „Plaza de la Iglesia“, and delight in the views of the Bay of Altea.
You can rent a sailboat in Puerto Náutico de Altea or practice water activities in Campomanes, a marina between Altea and Calpe. If yours is nature and hiking, there are recommended nearby routes such as El Albir Fort de Bernia, Castell de Guadalest and Las Fuentes del Algar.
Romantic getaway: Calpe.
Another beautiful town on the Costa Blanca. The Old Town has a lot to o?er: the walls of the s. XV, the Torreón de la Peça and several cultural and historical buildings.
In the port you will see the magic of the town where the fishing tradition still remains. In the center of Calpe you will find saltwater lagoons, known as „Las Salinas“, where flamingos, herons and other majestic birds have their habitat. The Queen’s Baths, the Roman Baths and the Molí del Morelló Tower are some of the sites that enrich the history of the place.
As for walks and routes, in Calpe we have the Peñón de Ifach route, a 332-meter-high mountain declared a National Park, and the ecological walks of the Princess of Asturias Calpe-Benissa.
Romantic getaway: Benidorm
Benidorm is a lively city of skyscrapers and beaches. Among its most outstanding places is The Aigüera Park, a beautiful green and central space where shows are held in the summer. To the south of the park, a ten-minute walk away, is the promenade that borders the Levante beach.
The Balcony of the Mediterranean is a panoramic viewpoint that rises above a small cove ideal for an intimate getaway. For hiking there are amazing routes along the steep cli?s. At nightfall the city wakes up in bars, clubs and terraces for all tastes, especially on Calle Gerona.
Enjoy the best beaches near us.
The beach is one of the best settings for a romantic experience. Discover the beaches of these areas for your weekend getaway.
Altea beaches and coves.
They are pebble beaches, with crystal clear waters , calmer than those of Calpe and Benidorm. Most have services, but there are others that are more natural and wild, as well as small coves that are not very frequented.
The bay of Altea forms part of the Sierra Helada Natural Park. The variety of beaches allows for all kinds of water activities: swimming, diving, sailing, jet-ski and more.
This coastline is made up of two main beaches separated by the marina and the Balcón del Mediterráneo viewpoint. One is the Levante beach, the main beach in Benidorm, but its the Poniente beach and its promenade, which, when moving slightly away from the tourist area, is more relaxing and ideal for watching the sunset as a couple.
Calpe beaches and coves.
Calpe o?ers the perfect beaches and coves to escape as a couple. Its beaches are a paradise that o?er to disconnect and relax. El Racó is a small beach with unbeatable views and calm waters where you can experience an unbeatable underwater diving experience.
La Cala Gasparet is a remote beach, only accessible by sea, either by kayaking if you love adventure or sailing in a luxurious boat with the services of the yacht clubs. La Cala Calalga is relaxed, with turquoise waters, with a surprising variety of underwater vegetation, ideal for diving and snorkeling. La Cala Del Mallorquí is a private beach with crystal clear waters, considered as the best romantic setting.
A walk in the mountains with incredible landscapes?
The area also o?ers one of the most impressive hiking routes in the Valencian Community, the Forat de Bernia route. On this route you have to cross crouched through a cave in the mountain to go out onto a spectacular natural balcony.
