Province of Alicante

The province of Alicante is, with the main the exception of its southern extreme, a mountainous province with an undulating and built-up coastline, favoured above all by road cyclists who value its benign weather, testing climbs and abundant off-season accomodation.

The above video, with commentary in Valencian, highlights the exceptional beauty and interest of el Raco del Duc/el barranc de l'Infern section of the Serpis Greenway between the villages of Villalonga and L'Orxa.

Those looking for less-exacting bicycle touring routes can enjoy the greenways running east to west through the north of province, passing through Villena and taking us gently down to the coast in Gandia, running north along the coast from Denia to the neighbouring town of Oliva and its protected wetlands, and in the south of the province in and around the town of Torrevieja and its spectacular Laguna Rosa salt lake, among others.
