The busy capital of the Costa Blanca.  This city is well known for its cosmopolitan design and busy nightlife, with its buzzing shops and boutiques, bars and restaurants, and sea port, with its expensive range of millionaires' yachts moored in its harbour, which is all overlooked by the castle. 

Elche - 10 minutes away

This historic Spanish city is capital of the El Baix district and the Valencian region's third largest city in terms of population.  Elche had its original location at L'Alcudia where the bust of the Lady of Elche was found, however the city was moved by the Moors to its current position, surrounded by groves of palm trees.  Today over 300,000 officially protected palm trees in the city lend it a somewhat exotic air.  These palms are evident on every street corner and can be especially enjoyed in the well-tended city park and just a short walk away in the Huerto del Cura (Priest's Garden), where a palm in the form of a seven-armed candelabra is a good example of the freaks of nature.  Elche is also famous for its production of shoes.  There is 'Europe's Largest Factory Shop' Salvador Artesana open daily to the public.

This unspoiled fishing town has a beautiful promenade with beach bars and restaurants.  A mainly residential area, this town is where the Spanish take their holidays.
