This year no mountains, well at least not the Alps. Oh no, this year sun, sea and beach in Spain. Just sun, sea and beach? No, there’s a lot more than just that!
We stayed in an apartment owned by some good friends of Amy’s parents, at the Torrevieja coast line at the Costa Blanca (Murcia) in Spain.
This travel report will show you what you can do in the surrounding area in a radius of about 70km. And it´s more than enough, so enjoy the read!
In March we had a week away from home, visiting family in Spain. Here is a short report of the trips we took in that week. For a more detailed report of the area around Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca, we refer you to our 2008 travel report.
This time we decided on a budget airliner for the return trip. We went for about €40,- per person a return trip with Ryanair from Maastricht-Airport to Alicante.
Torrevieja is situated about 40 minutes from Alicante (by car).
Why worthwhile? Beautiful and quiet mountain road, great view of the city of Murcia. Also (sporty) biking route (keep the height difference in mind).
Why worthwhile? A special mountainous area (tops to 1500m height), so close to the sea. Typical quiet Spanish mountain villages. Visit to Guadalest.
