Cap de l’Horta is the rugged, residential area around the lighthouse of the same name, in the state of Alicante. It lies on the eastern coast of Spain. The Mediterranean Sea and Playa de San Juan beach surround the town. It is one of the most magnificent towns in the state of Alicante, with beaches and secluded coves linked by clifftop walking trails. Quieter corners of the area’s coastal nature preserves are popular with nudists, and the breeze-prone waters draw windsurfers and parasailers. Upscale seafood restaurants and ocean-view cocktail bars dot the cape. ‘It is a nice cape, under a small mountain that blocks the city lights.’ Sounds lovely!
