The town of Santa Pola is also characterized as an ideal space for a sport vacation. Any leisure option is feasible in this city where the climate, landscape, cuisine and cultural offerings complete a highly stimulating sensory experience for sports lovers.

There are a lot of things to see in this town.

The “Arenales del Sol” is a district of Elche, area of second residences, which increases its population in summer. It has three distinctive natural sites: the Clot of Galvany (a natural landscape formed by local variety of ecosystems such as dunes, salt marshes and ponds), the Carabasí Dunes and the Altet Dunes (two of the most important dune systems of Valencia, currently in regeneration) and the Sierra del Cabo de Santa Pola.

With nearly three kilometres of fine White sand beaches, the Arenales del Sol is one of the most valued of the Alicante Coast, both for the quality of its waters, and the richness of its sea and for its dunes. It is also connected with the natural beauty spot of the Galvany Clot, a wetland located between the urban areas of Arenales del Sol and Gran Alacant (in the town of Santa Pola). It is ideal for windsurfing (there is a limited area for practicing it and you can rent all the necessary equipment) and other sports and activities. This beach is equipped with blue flag and the virgin nature of the areas in the north and south of the city center gives a high ecological value.
