Guadalest is a Valencian town located in the mountains, with a fascinating history and stunning views, just a short drive from the seaside historical town of Altea. Are you visiting on a hot summer’s day? Why not try out the local outdoor swimming pool recently renovated to a high standard. You will swim with the fabulous Guadlest castle in view!

Isla de Tabarca

Isla de Tabarca is the closet island to Alicante. Take a water taxi (around €10 return) from Santa Pola harbour, and you will be on the island within 20 minutes. Bring a picnic or plan to sample some traditional paella. The historical streets make brilliant backdrops for your Spanish engagement photoshoot. I personally think the selling point of visiting this island is the ocean! Bring some goggles or snorkelling gear and have your Alicante Engagement Photographer take some pictures of you in the water. Keep an eye out for the fantastic fish swimming past!
