Being less than 10 minutes’ drive away from Alicante airport means that once you land you know home is just down the road and also allowing you more time to enjoy yourself before having to head off! There are two fantastic cities less than 20 minutes’ drive away where you may want to take a drink and tapas overlooking Alicante marina or take a stroll through Elche’s famous palm tree groves. Both offer excellent shopping and eateries to try as well as many historic and cultural gems to explore. One of the greatest attractions of course are the sandy Blue Flag beaches of Carabassi, Los Arenales del Sol and El Altet which cover over 7km of the coastline adjoining Gran Alacant. The weather is also a major factor with an average of 320 days of sunshine per year and a warm climate allowing you to get out more, take a bike ride in the sunshine, perhaps a boat trip or have a barbecue confidence that the weather is one of the last things you have to worry about! The area offers a wide range of amenities, supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants which should suit most people’s needs. With continual improvements being made every year the selection of services is always improving and the additions to recreational facilities makes it a wonderful place to live or visit for all ages. Recent years have brought a new weekly market square, new parks, a church, a new municipal sports centre and don’t miss the cape sky walk where you get to experience some of the most dramatic and enchanting views of the coastline and over the island of Tabarca. More improvements are also in the pipeline and with new businesses being drawn to the area the future is looking bright. Gran Alacant really is a place that offers almost everything!
