“Great for and lovely evening stroll.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

A evening stroll is a great way to experience a little bit of the real Spanish life. Always something going on from music to small shows. A meeting place for young and old with lots of restaurants and small stalls. Take a walk on the promenade from the beach to the boat and yacht harbor. A really beautiful area and a must if you are anywhere near. We always prefer the evenings when the sun has gone down and the Explanada de España really comes to life. a nice experience.

“alicante”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a very unusual promenade and well worth a look if you are in Alicante, on the first trip here I felt strange walking along as it gives the impression of being uneven, it is not, it is just the orientation of the design. Excellent street stalls selling local handicrafts are open along the walk and a good number of restaurants. The council put out wooden chairs where you can rest for free and if it is hot there are many shady spots along the promenade. A good day out for all ages, as it is close to the beach and marina. The restaurants around the marina are pricy and not, in my opinion, good value for money.

“Brautiful promenade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

It is a very nice promenade near the sea for a walk in the shade of lots of palm trees . When it is too warm you can have a drink in one of the bars or just sit on a bench under a palm tree. There are also some cabins which sell handcrafts. Really a great place!

This is one of Spain's premier promenades. Beautifully decorated with open air events, bars and restaurants. A magical place to stroll along day or night.
