We count ourselves lucky to live in an area that has so much to offer. Bigastro is such a friendly town to live in. Then we have Torrevieja which is lively and has a pleasant promenade and Guadamar which has a splendid beach and a large dune area.
Within an hour we can be in one of several large cities. Elche has a great history and the huge palm forest, Cartegena has its port and maritime history, Murcia and Alicante are large and cosmopolitan with all the facilities you would expect in a major city.
Behind the coastal plain there are mountains followed by more mountains. The scenery as you travel up the coast towards Benidorm or down past Murcia is quite spectacular.
