The best places to do your shopping
2 Dec 2019
If you want to replace the beach walks with a good shopping session, you have the ideal environment on the Costa Blanca to do this. You have everything you can imagine within reach, but above all you will find shoes, toys, carpets and products with their own designation of origin such as nougat and wine.
In the province of Alicante you will find the most complete shopping centers such as La Zenia Boulevard in Orihuela Costa, Gran Vía in Alicante, La Marina in Benidorm or L'Aljub in Elche. You will also find Avenida Maisonnave in the capital, which has become the city's main shopping street. In Elche and Elda you will find all kinds of footwear, because they are the most important places of this product in Spain and from there the most prominent designs come on the market. In Crevillente you see a multitude of carpet stores, while in Ibi the toy industry stands out.
Another highly recommended option for shopping is to visit the many craft markets such as these in Altea or second-hand markets such as in La Nucia. You can also find them in Guardamar, Benidorm and Alicante.
And without a doubt, the most notable products of the Costa Blanca are nougat and wine. The first can be found in Jijona where they guarantee quality and excellence. The latter has many international awards and can be purchased at the wineries that allow your visit and tasting.
