One of my favorite ways to explore a new country is at a dining table, sampling local cuisine. I’ve eaten bouillabaisse in France, pasta in Italy, pad thai in Thailand, summer rolls in Vietnam, and ceviche in Peru—to name just a few.

Alicante and the Costa Blanca are popular destinations in Spain amongst sun seekers from all over the world.

The Costa Blanca is known for its beautiful beaches, wonderful climate, and tourist resorts like Benidorm, Altea, Calpe, Gandia, and Javea to the north of the province, and Santa Pola or Torrevieja to the south.

It’s a pity, because the inland areas of the province offer attractive places and some real hidden gems to be discovered.

An Unusual Way to Explore Barcelona

Barcelona – this seaside town has much to offer visitors, from delicious food to Gaudi’s famous buildings. But as with any large city, how do you fit it all in? One way we love is discovering the city by bike! There are many locations for bike rentals in Barcelona, so wherever you are staying, you can hop on a bike and explore. There are bike paths, and the city is used to having plenty of bike traffic (as always, follow local traffic rules).

You’re at a beach in southern Spain, you can smell the salty summer air. After walking across the hot sand and stones, you can’t wait to take a dip in the sea. It’s a hot day, and everyone's having a great time playing in the water...so you decide to partake in the fun.

Last spring, I discovered the beautiful port city of Málaga. On previous solo and group trips, I had visited Seville, Granada, and Cordoba. But this city is unlike any other in Spain. And it’s not just because it’s the birthplace of artist Pablo Picasso.

Anchored on the “Costa del Sol” in the southern Andalucía region, Málaga is a beacon for all those yearning for the “beach-bum” lifestyle but also want history, culture, haute cuisine, and safe evening outings.
