And now, let me tell you a little bit about the beach in Costa Blanca . The first city beach between our hotel and Valencia had the lively name, Vila Joiosa. The city lived up to its name, as the houses on the waterfront were painted in "funny" bright colors :) Personally, this place seemed...
We visited  Alicante for the first time. To be honest, I imagined it to be quite different. I do not know how to explain it. I thought it was a kind of a health resort  city... like  Benidorm , for example, or Marbella, which is a beach city. Well, there’s a beach, but the...
