Santa Pola is situated about 15 minutes drive South-West of Alicante Airport on the Costa Blanca. It’s a very Spanish resort, with most of the visitors being from Madrid, and a small number from Britain, France and elsewhere. English is not widely spoken. Santa Pola is a working port town, making the seafood a speciality in local restaurants.
The town is centred on the Castle and Square (Glorieta) where the children play in early evening. There are a wide range of shops, bars, and restaurants on the square and the seafront.
Urbanisation Punta Varadero
The apartments and townhouses of Punta Varadero centre around the child friendly swimming pool and public gardens.
The development is situated about 2km East from the centre of town, and about 200m from the beach.
There are a choice of Blue Flag beaches, with the nearest being Playa Varadero just 200m from the house. Towards the West are the town beaches of Playa Santiago Bernabeu and Playa Levante. Beyond the Port, Gran Playa stretches many miles, and is a popular destination for windsurfing and kite surfing. To the East are the more secluded coves of Santa Pola del Este. Further East, beyond the end of the town is the protected nature reserve of Carabassi, situated below the Lighthouse on the Cabo De Santa Pola.
The walk into town takes a leisurely 20 minutes along the promenade (with plenty of seafront bars to stop off at on the way). Alternatively, the local bus stops on the seafront near the house, and costs one Euro to ride into town.
The El Ancla beach bar on Playa Varadero is owned by a fishing family who work the local Port – hence the seafood is spectacular. For more formal dining, Restaurante Varadero (about 100m from the house) is one of the top restaurants in town, with great views out to sea, and is a popular destination for posh wedding receptions. Also within a 5 minute walk are Carlottis Restaurant, bar and shop. And in season the local beach bars Kala II and Poseidon open, along with the grocer and pharmacy at the Astilleros development three blocks left down the promenade.
For guests who prefer to visit English speaking bars, there is an Irish bar and Italian restaurant at Santa Pola Del Este, 15 minutes walk north up the Promenade.
Around Santa Pola
In the vicinity it’s worth visiting the Cathedral Quarter of Alicante, the Roman City of Elche (for which Santa Pola was the Port), and the popular local destination of Tabarca Island, which is a short ferry ride from the Port
