Spend a day in Guadalest while on a longer stay in the Alicante area. A very welcome change to the beach. Very nice views and now in the winter month there were not so many tourists. Not sure how I would like it in summer when the place is packed with people. Don't expect too much from the restaurants there and spend the 3EUR to actually go up to the castle. It is worth the money.
I didn't like how everyone gets filmed and photographed to sell you additional souvenirs. What a waste of paper as well!
