What you can expect
Discover local culture in villages in tranquil locations away from the busy beach resorts. Up in the mountains visit citrus groves and head back to the coast to see local fisherman haul in the day's catch before tasting a fresh sample of their produce.
Begin by heading high into the hills and feel the breeze away from the coast as you wander the peaceful streets of Finestrat. With aromatic lemon and orange groves surrounding the town and a backdrop of steep cliffs and jagged peaks, the location is striking. If the season is right, sink your teeth into some of the sweet juicy fruit to experience the natural sugary goodness.
Next, take an unforgettable ride on the slow train between the sleepy fishing village of Altea and Benissa, watch the beautiful coastline unveil before your eyes and then reach the fishing port of Calpe to see trawlers return to the harbour. Watching fishermen transfer their catch to shore is entertainment in itself – as is the sight of auctioning off fish at the wet market. Toast the day with a freshly prepared seafood appetiser and a cool glass of wine.
