The pretty palms
This sun-kissed part of the Costa Blanca is renowned for its flourishing palm trees. So much so, the Palmeral of Elche, a huge date palm grove, has earned UNESCO status. It’s home to more than 200,000 palm trees, making it the largest of its kind in Europe. You can stroll the rows upon rows of swaying palms or take a seat on a bench and enjoy the shade.
Day trips galore
