Sometimes public transport can take us where we want to go, but it’s not always that easy. Therefore, a rental car is perfect to get to those places effortlessly. This article will provide you with information on those places where a car is far more comfortable, or even necessary.
Costa Blanca coves
With sunshine virtually 300 days a year, the Costa Blanca is known for its around 170 incredible beaches and coves. Many large beaches can be reached by regular bus or tram, but coves cannot. It might be really difficult to get to them without a car. For example, Cala de la Granadella, in Javea, one of the best-known coves in the area. Here you can find a guide to the Costa Blanca’s beaches and coves and the activities you can enjoy there.
Valleys and mountains
The province of Alicante is the second most mountainous province in Spain. One of the main peaks of our mountain ranges is the Pico de Aitana, at 1,558 metres above sea level. Trails are divided into 20 stages starting in Denia and ending in Orihuela. Each trail’s duration and distance are indicated. If you’d like to hike these trails, you’ll need to get there by car, as they usually start in the mountain. Here you can find some of the nature parks in the province of Alicante.
Rivers, lakes and spring pools
Nature lovers will always have something to see in the province of Alicante. Besides mountains, there are numerous rivers, lakes and spring pools. One of the best is the Fuentes del Algar, a section of the Algar river where you can indulge in a refreshing swim. You can also visit the source of the Vinalopó river, in Banyeres de Mariola. Both spots must be reached by car.
