This is a scenic run along a palm-lined seaside promenade in Alicante, with great views of the Mediterranean and Santa Barbara. The path stretches for nearly 7 km, from Playa de la Almadraba to the north all the way to the port, just east of the center of Alicante. In some sections, the route is along a wide, dedicated promenade path, and in other sections, the promenade is a wide sidewalk alongside Av. de Villajoyosa. This runs into the Explanada de España (Esplanade), a highlight of the route. The pedestrianized marble mosaic consists of 6.6 million little tiles, with towering palm trees, charming terrace cafés and great views of the harbor. You’ll wind around the marina and end up at the port. The entire route is nearly 7 km one-way, so choose any section you like!
Recent Add-On, from a user: After Esplanada, one can now continue for another ~1 km on a cycle path to the Casa del Mediterraneo (cultural center in a former train station). where you may take left into the palm-lined Parc de la Mar close to the industrial area of the port. This adds another ~3 km.
