Try seeing the Costa Blanca by tram! It's not the quickest way of getting from Alicante to Dénia, but views are great with plenty of cool stops en route.

Just over eighty years ago, the Spanish Civil War ended and the Republican government went into exile. Its last days in Spain were spent at a secret headquarters in the hills behind Alicante.
In March 1939, Alicante port was full of Republican refugees desperate to escape as Spain's civil war neared its end. Nearly 3,000 got away thanks to the bravery of a British captain and his crew. This is the remarkable story of the Stanbrook, still remembered 80 years on.
Museum visits are generally for rainy days. Problem is, there aren’t that many rainy days on the Costa Blanca. So visiting the archaeology museum in Alicante (MARQ) generally means sacrificing some sunshine. But it is worth it.
