Gran Alacant is a purpose built residential area made up of villas, townhouse and apartments. It is located between the beach of Los Arenales and the city of Santa Pola and just 3km to the south of Alicante. Gran Alacant is very popular with people who want to live the quiet life but also want to be closer to the busier areas such as Alicante. Many of the roads are private where access is only available to the actual residents. There are some breathtaking views of the Mediterranean coastline. Close by you have a shopping centre and also bars and restaurants. To the south you also have the popular resort of Santa Pola with its fine beaches, port and shopping areas. The urbanisation will benefit from a new golf course which will be situated at the entrance of Gran Alacant.
