After our siesta, we walked a few blocks to our favorite boardwalk cafe in Alicante. It surprised us that the beach was packed with thousands of sun lovers at 7 pm and still packed when we left after 8 pm. Our favorite pastime here is people-watching. It never gets dull, with every age and nationality, size and shape on parade, some dressed to the nines and others barely dressed at all. With a glass of wine at $3, the price of admission to this non-stop “bun-nanza” is a bargain.
