Gran Alacant

Gran Alacant is a large residential tourism urbanisation, which has a friendly relaxed feel. Many northern Europeans have settled here permanently to enjoy the fabulous climate and beautiful beaches and sand dunes that the area affords.

The urbanisation is located on a hillside close to the sandy beaches with many of the properties enjoying a sea view. The area is just 15 kilometres south of Alicante and 6 km from Santa Pola. The international airport at Alicante is approximately 10 minutes drive.

Beaches?
Carabassi beach boasts 4 kilometres of wild natural and unspoilt sand dunes backed by a pine trees forest. The beaches of Santa Pola are also close by.

Excursions
In Santa Pola you can visit the "salinas" or salt flats that are still in use and from where you can watch splendid sunsets.

Santa Pola is also the town with one of the biggest fishing ports on the Mediterranean. Here you will find some excellent fish restaurants serving the local ‘catch of the day’. An absolute "must" is a trip to the "Isla de la Tabarca" which was made a national Marine Reserve in 1986. The crystal clear waters and the fauna and flora, make it an authentic paradise for divers.

Shopping
There are supermarkets, restaurants, chemists in Gran Alacant and the nearby local towns of Santa Pola and Torrevieja have excellent markets.

Cuisine
There is a range of international restaurants to be found, serving menus influenced by flavours from the four corners of the globe.

Nightlife
A wide variety of nightlife can be found at nearby Torrevieja, which is a short Taxi ride away. Here you will find internationally renowned discos and many lively bars and restaurants.

Climate
The Costa Blanca enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold North winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.

In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination

Gran Alacant review

Lovely place to visit. The only thing wrong was all the mosquitos from the floods the previous week. Other than that one of our favourite places to stay.

Gran Alacant review

Great amenities but would have liked more traditional restaurants.


Costa Blanca reviews

Great beaches but unfortunately we arrived the week after dreadful storms and floods and the big clean up was still happening, which restricted our access to some places along the coast.
