  • Lots of locals sit here during the day and night. Lots of stalls selling not quite local products. And avoid the people trying to sell you cheap and fake sunglasses etc. The wave pattern can make you ...  more »
  • Strolling up the Explanada at any time of day is pretty lovely... an absolute must-see photo stop in the area.  more »
  • Cool laid floor with Palm trees on both sides. In the evening they play live music. Along a lot of restaurants. There are also some souvenir stalls.

  • Favourite place in the town for stroll. There are an incredible 6.6 million red, black & cream marble tiles that make up striking wave pattern along with 400 palm trees and extends for 500 meters along the harbour.
  • One of the most brilliant and detailed works of art I've ever seen. Tiny mosaic tiles stretch over 500 meters. It runs along the Mediterranean Sea and is also called the Paseo de la Explanada.
  • A very attractive walking street with a charming mosaic-tiled pavement.
  • The most beautiful Boulevard in Alicante-all because he seaside and palm-lined promenade, reminding me of the Portuguese kal'sadu. Near the Marina, a small park, cafes, Estrada is a Word, which is not just a nice vacation, but also a comfortable life in the Spanish city on the Mediterranean Sea!
