Let me tell you about 

Costa Blanca

I wouldn't mind spending an entire week in Pueblo Mascarat, the town I recently visited.

Approaching the city, we saw a small lake with pink flamingos grazing in the shallow waters.

 since it seemed, to me, quite large and very touristy.

In any case, it was inexpensive :)

But we couldn’t park there.
There were no parking problems on the beach because the parking lots were huge.  
The city is much smaller than the previous one, but still nice and cozy...
