This zoo and aquarium is also "a park devoted to leisure, defense of the environment, teaching respect for animals and nature, conservation and breeding of species." With that said, Mundomar seeks to design the penguin homes to and dolphin habitats with each species' happiness and comfort in mind.  The healthy animal environment also makes for a pleasing — not to mention ethical — visit for humans.

One TripAdvisor user, a fan of the park's meerkats, says, "The park is well laid out, not too busy and is very visitor friendly." Travelers also highlight the animal shows, some of which feature parrots, sea lions and dolphins.

Located in the city of Benidorm in the Alicante province, you'll either need to drive approximately 30 miles to Mundomar, or you can take a bus or tram.  Admission is pricey — €29 EUR for adults (about $40 USD) and €24 EUR for children (about $33 USD) — but most travelers say the park is more than worth the high price. You can also get a discount if you book online rather than buying your ticket at the gate or if you book a family package for a group of people. You can visit daily, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For further information, visit the website.

#1 San Juan Beach

You'll find this piece of shoreline just about 6 miles north of Alicante. Playa del San Juan is accessible by bus or tram, and it's known as one of Spain's best beaches, in fact, many travelers say it offers a better beach experience than you'll find at Postiguet. It's also pretty long (a little more than 4 miles), so you'll surely be able to carve out your own little space in the sand. And just behind the beach are restaurants, nightlife venues and even an 18-hole golf course.

One TripAdvisor user describes it like this: "Lovely soft, pebbleless sandy beach with all the facilities and safety anyone could want."
