Sun, Sea and Sangria!: Boasting over 320 days of sunshine every year, the Costa Blanca or 'White Coast' is one of the world's healthiest places to live according the World Health Organisation and the healthiest place in Europe. So maybe you are not visiting for the benefit of your health, but the lovely dry climate makes the Costa Blanca a great place to stay for a few days or a few weeks - soaking up the sun on the lovely beaches or basking by the pool. Maybe you fancy a walk along the promenade at Torrevieja, visiting the stalls of local craftsmen or maybe coffee and a snack at one of the many cafes. With lots of bars and restaurants serving local dishes or international cuisine, there is something for everyone. Why not book yourself on a boat trip and enjoy a leisurely cruise along the coastline or for those young at heart or with children, why not visit one of the theme parks. And make a note - Paramount Studios are opening a theme park to rival Disneyland a little further along the coast in 2015!
Muddy Waters!: Lo Pagan Mud Baths (Los Banos del Lodo)
Why not try something completely different and visit the Lo Pagan Mud Baths - they are a great day out for the whole family. Only about 4 km from Murcia airport, take the San Pedro turn off from either the AP7 or N332 then from there it's just 5 min away. Follow the signs for Lo Pagan and you will get there.
The most important thing is that they are free. Great news if you have a large family to keep occupied. It is open air, you simply go into the mud pools cover yourself or each other in mud then come out and let it dry on in the sun!
All ages are there from two to 102 - it's a strange sight at first seeing all these people standing round looking like statues but great fun once you are 'muddied' up.
And believe it or not - it's good for you even if it is a bit smelly!!!
Palming you Off!: The Palmeral of Elche is a plantation of palm trees in the Spanish province of Alicante. It is the largest palm grove in Europe and one of the largest in the world, surpassed in size only by some in Arab countries.
The Palmeral includes the Parque Municipal and many other orchards (huertos), covering over 3.5 km2 (1.4 sq mi), including 1.5 km2 (0.58 sq mi) within the city of Elche (Elx). It contains more than 11,000 palm trees, mostly date palms (Phoenix dactylifera), with individual specimens up to 300 years old. At its peak, in the 18th century, it may have covered an area twice as large, with up to 200,000 trees.
It is thought that palms were originally planted in this location as early as the 5th century BC by Carthaginians who settled in south-east Spain. The plantation survived under the Romans and the Moors.
A lovely calm and tranquil place to visit, a Unesco World Heritage Site.
