With a magnificent background setting featuring the Sierra Blanca mountains and over 27 km of white sandy beaches, it is no wonder this glamorous resort city is such a popular choice for tourists. There is a wide variety of leisure activities such as golf, water-sports, cycling and hiking and if you prefer a more tranquil holiday then there are plenty of restaurants and bars along the spectacular promenade, shops, public gardens such as La Alameda Park, art and media exhibitions as well as a whole host of annual festivals and parties. There are many cultural attractions too, with museums, art galleries and historical monuments. The old town boasts ancient architecture, cobblestone streets and traditional tapas bars and eateries. The Orange Square can be found at the centre, and is a must-see for visitors as it is full of tropical plants and orange trees.
