1. To the island of Tabarca
The island of Tabarca is located at about twenty kilometers distance from the city of Alicante, and near the Santa Pola’s cape. It is 1,800 meters long and approximately 400 meters wide, and it is the biggest island which belongs to the Comunidad Valenciana and the only one which is inhabited.
Tabarca’s climate is mild, it has an annual average of 17ºC, and it is famous because of its clear waters both in its sand beaches –to the south- and its coves and cliffs surrounding the island. Tabarca’s natural conditions make it an ideal place for practicing water sports.
Apart from this, it has a wide variety of seaside restaurants offering traditional seafood (caldero, paellas marineras, seafood, etc), and a worth-visiting museum, beautiful porches, emblematic buildings such as the Casa del Gobernador (Governor’s House), the San Pedro and San Pablo church, etc
