Situated 15 minutes from the city of Alicante and 10 minutes from the International airport, Santa Pola is renowned for its beautiful beaches, sand dunes and salt lakes. It also has a large fishing harbour. Many of the salt lakes here are protected as there are a wide variety of migratory birds here such as flamingos, Colorada duck and Osprey.
Located on the hillside to the North of Santa Pola lies the Urbanisation of Gran Alacant, which boasts excellent views of the surrounding area together with some magnificent beaches. Now well established, it is the ideal place to holiday, to live or to retire to. All amenities are to hand and the area is served by a good local bus service.
