La Nucia is a town located in a fertile valley on the Northern Costa Blanca in Spain.
It is situated fifty-one kilometres to the north-west of Alicante and the airport, and only eight kilometres away from the most popular tourist resort on the Northern Costa Blanca, Benidorm. Altea with its picturesque Old Town is also only seven kilometres away.
La Nucia has become a popular place for expats to live as it is so close to the coast yet quiet enough not to be affected by the hordes of tourists who descend on the Costa Blanca during the school holidays. La Nucia attracts many shoppers to the town because of the outlet store Labels and Tables which stock many popular high street brands such as Next, Debenhams, New Look, Dorothy Perkins.
Worth visiting are the nearby waterfalls at Callosa d’en Sarria and the popular Algar Falls. There are of course a whole host of things to do just minutes away from La Nucia as the theme parks of Terra Mitica and Terra Natura with Aqua Natura are less than ten minutes away by car and then Mundomar and Aqualandia are about fifteen minutes away from the town near downtown Benidorm.
