Mediterranean Coast of Spain. Got any ideas?

Travel Forums Europe Mediterranean Coast of Spain. Got any ideas?

I'm picking my way through a six week plan of Spain. I've already got the Western route planned out. My plan ends in Cartagena and I've got to make my way up to Barcelona to fly out. By this point I'll have roughly two weeks left. It's going to be the beginning of March by the time I get there, and I am no beach guy anyways. I'm looking for interesting little towns to stop in overnight and hopefully some dramatic coastline. I've looked at pics of Alicante and it looks sort of resort-y and Valencia seems fairly average as well, but i'm not counting them out. Anybody have any place they quite liked that I should take a look at? Doesn't have to be on the water, could be inland too. The parameters are that it has to be between Cartagena and Barcelona on the Mediterranean side. Thanks.

Also, nice to drop back around Travellerspoint. Been away quite a while now.

Hey, just here to say that you simply cannot go to Spain and not see Ibiza!! Especially since you have a pretty lengthy trip ahead, so I guess you can make time for it. My advice is, don't miss it! The coastline is amazing, the old city has so much sightseeing to offer and you can also get to sleep there; there are also the old ruins, the castle, the famous cathedral of our lady of the snow AND let's not forget all the hippy markets where you can spend hours just browsing through amazing stuff brought from all over the world, mostly handcrafted. And don't forget to visit Es Vedra, the mysterious rock rising from the sea, said to have a huge magnetic aura and even mysterious powers :). Cheers!

Thanks very much. I've got a window open and am going to look into that immediately. I only know Ibiza from the albums and the Brits mentioning it all the time the way us North Americans talk about Mazatlan or Playa Del Carmen, which made me leery.
