60km Villajoyosa – Cap de Santa Pola

The famous Spanish bullRiding through AlicanteAnother hilly day dawned for us. Although the climbs weren’t quite as steep as yesterday, the road took in plenty of rolling hills throughout the day. Alicante was our lunchtime stop – surprisingly not quite as tacky as we’d expected. The seafront area is quite nice and with the mountains in the background it’s not hard to see how it’s become so popular. Lunchtimes by the beach are becoming a ritual for us. Soaking up the sun over the noon hour almost makes dealing with the traffic along the Mediterranean worth it. The traffic was particularly heavy coming out of Alicante but it started to die down once we got past the airport and it wasn’t long before we discovered a nice little detour to the Cap de Santa Pola. With its lighthouse and view from the cliffs over the sea and the Illa de Tabarca, it’s well worth the stop. We made our supper there, before slipping down the road and into some of the woods on either side, to make our camp for the night.

    N332 – Aside from a couple minor roads, this was our main route for the day. Generally it wasn’t a bad road, but it did get a bit hectic on the exit from Alicante. There’s lots of traffic heading towards the airport, the motorway and two N roads, with no shoulder.
