We are visiting the area for a week in June, and staying with a friend at her property in Ciudad Quesada. She doesn't get out much but we like to explore. We don't know the area at all and looking at the map the main nearby places seem to be Guardamar del Segura, and Rojales.
How about Orihuela?
We intend to drive to Alicante for a day as I've heard it is welll worth a look.
We like seeing interesting sights,nature, and people watching whilst sitting at a nice cafe bar.
We've been told to avoid Torrevieja. Don't know why.
Do you know of any hidden gems or places best left alone.
