SORRY, NO SINGLE SEX PARTIES
The nearest bars and restaurants are less than 2 minutes walk, but far enough away not to be noisy.
There is a children's play area, tennis courts and gardens. We have full UK TV package, with BBC1, BBC2, 3 & 4, ITV1, 2, 3, & 4, Sky News and about 40 other channels, so you can keep up with news and soaps. !! If you need Sky Sports, the local bars have them.
The nearest beach is 10 minutes walk on flat ground, where you will find miles of golden sand, which is safe for children. During Peak season, there is a life guard, beach bar, sun beds and parasols for hire.
Further along the coast road to Santa Pola, you will find rocky shoreline, ideal for snorkelling or fishing.
Santa Pola is typically Spanish, with it´s markets on Monday & Saturday, more golden sand and relaxed pace of life. In comparison, Alicante is 20 minutes in opposite direction with plenty of nightlife and shopping.
Benidorm is only 35 miles away with attractions like Terra Mitica, Terra Natura, Aqualandia and Benidorm P
Transport: With Alicante airport 10 minutes away, and all facilities locally, including a bus service to Alicante and Santa Pola, a car is not a necessity. Bus stops at end of the road.
However, to explore the coast or go sight seeing, perhaps to Guadalest, or to plunge into the icy Algar Falls, car hire can be arranged from the Airport. This is cheaper if you pre-book on line, contact us for details.
We now have a Fun Train all year. to take you all around Gran Alacant, including the beach, bars and restaurants in the GA Commercial Centre and those bars and restaurants up the hill. Timetable in apartment and can be caught at the local bars.
Golfers Paradise in the Costa Blanca: For those of you that wish to play, the Costa Blanca has plenty to choose from.
El Plantio, Alicante, Alenda, Quesada, La Finca, Villa Martin, Las Ramblas and Campoamor spring to mind.
The nearest one being 15 minutes away.
The winter months are a favourite with golfers, as the summer is just too hot to play. As we benefit from the micro-climate in Alicante, this gives us 300 days of sunshine a year....I have not counted them personally, so you can play golf here when your local course is not so inviting.
Whether you wish to spend time chilling by the pool or in one of our many bars, or prefer to hit the nightlife, Gran Alacant is a great location for both.
We actually live here and therefore are on hand to help you enjoy your stay or for advise should you need it.
