A boat trip: Tabarca
Taking a boat ride to Tabarca is undoubtedly one of the most original plans to enjoy one of the most beautiful landscapes of Alicante.

Once on the island, you can enjoy beaches and coves with clear water and a picturesque fishing port, with excellent options, with the possibility to taste the traditional “Caldero”, the typical dish of the island. You can also stroll through the picturesque town center, visit the museum of the island and take a long walk to the lighthouse. if you want to spend more time, you can stay on the island itself due to the opening of several accommodation facilities in recent years.
