Out and About in Alicante

Other equally picturesque destinations in the north of the region are Calpe and Javea which both have stunning coastlines.

One of the true gems of the region is the town of Denia. A former fishing village, it's a bit of a drive away as is just over an hour from Alicante, but it's well worth it.
