The views from the top of the Ifach Rock to the South

Although I love my city of birth, AlicanteWhen people ask me what is there to see in them, I don't believe false expectations.

Let's see, don't get me wrong. I partially agree with that “Alacant is the millor terreta of món”Because the truth is that we have a privileged climate and a really enviable quality of life. However, if the visitor comes looking for monuments or places of architectural wealth, it may not be the most suitable place.

But for that we have a province with numerous attractions. Two of the coastal pearls that can be visited on the same day are: Altea and Calpe.

Altea

One of the most romantic villages on the banks of the Costa Blanca.

To reach You can take the tram service from the center of Alicante or access by road through the national 322 (free) or the AP-7 (toll of 5.20 euros for light vehicles).

Altea has one of those stone beaches that have been removed from the Alicante coast. It is true that your feet will have some complaint but this also means that there are fewer people on the beach and you do not have to shake the sand when you leave.

The views from the beach are really beautiful, with the Serra Gelada (Sierra Helada, which separates Benidorm from Alfaz del Pí along the coast) to the southeast and the famous rock of the Peñón de Ifach to the north.
