A Week in the Costa Blanca, Spain

What to do in the costa blanca spain torrevieja Today, I've been wishing I was back in Spain. Sat on the beach with churros, fresh watermelon and a Pina Colada, to be precise. I spent a girly week on the Costa Blanca with my Mum and sister at the beginning of the month. We had the best time snorkelling at La Zenia beach and exploring both Torrevieja and Alicante in our hired Fiat 500. It was such a chilled out week - just what we all needed.

I personally preferred Torrevieja. The tiled benches and flower beds were a lovely touch and everything just seemed friendlier. We enjoyed an amazing sharing platter of fishy tapas at Tasca Nueva Bahia, followed by a tub the best cookie ice cream at a nearby heladerĂ­a. The walk along the promenade offered sea views aplenty and I managed to spot some rocks with cheeky faces! I'm a bit gutted I didn't get more photos of the graffiti I saw in Spain; it's so vibrant and playful.

We snapped up some local peaches, cherries and olives for lunch that day. I was really sad that I couldn't bring home any of the baby succulents that were calling my name! I really like the area we stayed in. A drive to the lilac salt lakes at Torrevieja and the Pedrera reservoir are both musts. La Zenia Boulevard is also a great place for eating, shopping and evening entertainment. If you visit, Miss Coffee does fantastic ice cream - oh and ice cream cocktails. Need I say more!
