Route
“Esplanada Alicante. A must when visiting Alicante. Have a nice walk in the evening and look at local merchandises, sit down and enjoy a drink. I don´t recommend any of the restaurants here. Have a look at "Sale & Pepe " which guides you to the restaurant area - 5 min walk from the esplanada. ”
