Alicante, day 6.

 

As with every blog post that precedes this one, Day 6 in Alicante involved a beach. I think it has become clear that if I’m near the sea then a day cannot go by without a brief encounter! Nothing quite beats feeling the sand between your toes, the crunch of salt in your hair and the sound of softly lapping waves as you lie in the sun. Dreamy!

After my early swim in the sea and a day on the beach we returned home to wash the sand from our toes and to slip into something a little smarter to head back to Denia to the lovely street we had ice-cream on the day before. As I remembered the street was the perfect location to indulge in some traditional tapas at Bar Dianense Diego- after all, you can’t visit Spain and not have tapas! The vibe was great and the food even better! The whole point of tapas is to order lots of little dishes rather than have a big meal each. It offers the perfect opportunity to try out new foods and new delicacies and it means your dinner lasts all night which is incredibly civilised! We had about fourteen different tapas dishes between the four of us which turned out to be the perfect amount. We had cod croquettes, grilled swordfish, Russian salad, mussels, calamares (my personal favourite!), fried mixed fish, local cheeses, breads with garlic butter, grilled Mediterranean vegetables and much more…

Just down from the tapas restaurant was the market square where the Alicante Wine Festival was in full swing. A drummer playing a full drum-kit and bongos gave the square a fantastic atmosphere and people watching on sipping local wine and no doubt getting tipsy as the night wore on and it grew dark.

After paroozing round the wine festival we went down to the waterfront where all of the boats, large and small, bobbed up and down in the dusk…

Parallel to the seafront we browsed this wonderful little market. There were stalls overflowing with bags, clothes and jewellery from Asia and Africa as well as stalls heaped with hand-crafted designs and strings of lights.
