A popular choice to end a Spanish trip is Alicante with its sea side sunny beaches along the Costa Blanca. It has wonderful parks, lots of adventures and a great weather, too. Relax in the beautiful beach of Playa de San Juan for a less populated choice. But there is always the more popular one, Playa del Postiguet. Either way, you will still have a stunning view of the coast. There are a number of hotels by the sea which could provide you with both comfort and fantastic views. It would not be too hard to find one. During the day, make trips to the historic landmarks of the Santa Barbara Castle, Tabarca Island, Canelobre Caves and to the Guadalest Valley for a breathtaking mountain view. Finally, do not leave without having the mouth-watering Spanish trinity of rice, fish, and seafood with a local twist.

You will find leaving this endlessly enchanting place is a challenge but when you do plan to travel from Catalonia and through Spain again, there is a long list of places you could visit that are as promising as what we have suggested thus far.
