Where to go around Alicante
The mountain El Maigmó is just over an hour’s drive northwest of Alicante. Here you’ll find breathtaking scenery. The area is also great for hiking, with trails that are suitable for the whole family. One of the hiking trails runs along a disused, overgrown railroad track.
If you drive a little over an hour south of Alicante, you’ll reach the cosy city of Orihuela. The city is characterized by its many historic buildings, including a Gothic Cathedral with works made by the famous painter Velazquez. There are also several nice museums around the city.
The salt lakes of Torrevieja is one of the most spectacular destinations around Alicante. The lakes really are an amazing experience, and a beautiful sight as one of them is pink and the other green. Torrevieja also has many historic buildings and historic sites, and it’s located between the two salt lakes and the ocean. The drive from Alicante takes about an hour.
