To summarize, this is a range of must-visit villages, such as the island of Tabarca, located about 9km from the coast of Santa Pola with 1800m long and half km wide, with a climate of an annual temperature averge of 18ºC, which also has a lot of historical buildings such as the walled citadel of Carlos III. To arrive there you can take one of the two catamaran lines from Alicante or Santa Pola, and you can stop over one of the three hotels inside the island. There is also a museum that tells the history of the island.
There are plenty of activities for all tastes, some highly recommended such as the kayak route on the famous beach La Granadella in Jávea or the route to the lighthouse of Albir.
