From vast salt lakes to an unspoiled island and a charming palm grove, this tour explores the best natural highlights in the area. Get up close to the marine life of the Mediterranean at the aquarium in Santa Pola and end with stunning views of the region from Santa Barbara Castle.

Journey along the coast to the salt lakes of Santa Pola and see the huge mounds of salt extracted by evaporation before heading to the town's sea aquarium. Observe the variety of flora and fauna including colorful shoals of fish, spiky crustaceans, and swaying fronds of plants through the glass.

Then feel the breeze on your face as you cruise into the bay to Tabarca—an unspoiled island and marine nature reserve—and perhaps go for a swim to continue your exploration of underwater life. Back on the mainland, a trip to the must-see Palmeral of Elche—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—is next. At its heart is the Priest's Garden with an impressive 8-arm candelabra-like palm tree.

After leaving the idyllic palm grove oasis behind, complete your tour at Santa Barbara Castle. From its strategic hilltop location, gaze out upon the local landscape including Alicante's bay and pick out highlights from your day.
