Hot Air Balloon Ride - Various locations. Catral and close by mountains are always a fantastic location. Catral is situated halfway between Orihuela Costa and Alicante Airport on the AP7 (35 minutes by car).
Elche Football Stadium - Currently in the 2015 / 2016 season Elche are in the Segundo division. Their stadium, Estadio Martínez Valero, is quite impressive with a capacity of 36,000. It’s worth a visit if you are a football fan. 
Embalse De Pedrera Orihuela - This area refers to the 'Torremendo Lake'. From here you can view the different colours of the beautiful lake and the scenery all around. If you want a drive out for the morning then the views found here are certainly worth the drive. This is also very close to ‘The Grand Designs House’ Casa La Pedrera, which is a nice visit if you have time. 
Grand Designs House - Casa La Pedrera - Here they offer a wide variety of sports, entertainment or if it is just a quiet relax in the tea garden with some fantastic views then its the place to be. 
Take a Mud Bath - In Lo Pagan, San Pedro Del Pintor, you will find on the right hand side of the walkway the beautiful Mar Menor Sea and on the left hand the ‘Mud Baths’. Take a dip in the ‘mud baths’, cover your body with the mud you find either on the bottom of the sea floor or on the wooden jetty (be prepared it can get quite hot in the summer months.... oh and smelly). Once covered take a stroll to dry off and let the magical nutrients get to work. Afterwards dip back in to wash yourself off then hop along to the other side and have a sunbath and a swim in the clear waters of the Mar Menor
