The Huerto del Cura hotel is located in the heart of Elche's palm grove. This was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on November 30, 2000.
This highly significant location gives the hotel a special uniqueness in the province, which is characterized by having other types of tree specimens such as pine, olive or Valencian oak. Among all the palm trees that embrace the facilities of the Huerto del Cura hotel we find the so-called Palmera Cobra, a spectacular Phoenix palm tree that takes its name from its serpentine reptilian appearance. The experts who have studied this specimen of palm tree assure that about ¾ parts are completely horizontal, part of its trunk being even underground, to later rise imperially towards the sky crowning its peculiar physiognomy with abundant clusters of dates, the large protagonists of Elche's gastronomy and especially the Hotel Huerto del Cura, where the renowned 'delicacies of Elche' were born several decades ago. La Palmera Cobra is part of the Route of the Singular Palm Trees of Elche.
This route values ​​the Palmeral de Elche and the landscape complex that it forms throughout the length and breadth of the Elche town. The route is made up of 18 palm trees that stand out for their history, morphology or unique beauty. These are located in the historic palm grove, which is also the best-known tourist route in the city. The route is completely free and can be done on foot or by bicycle. It begins at the El Tridente palm tree, passing through the Cobra palm tree until it reaches the Pipas del Travalón Bajo.
The Cobra palm tree has been, and is, the scene of multiple interviews and it does not go unnoticed by hotel guests and future bride and groom who choose this space for their wedding celebration.

“The medal is for one of the diamonds of the city's hotel and tourist offer, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

“When in 2019 we acquired the hotels Port Jardín Milenio, Port Elche and also the Hotel Huerto del Cura, we made a firm commitment to a destination of great cultural and business value such as Elche. We want to take advantage of this moment to show our gratitude to the entire society of Elche for the great reception we have received in the city and to support our management, with which we have wanted to respect the DNA of the Hotel Huerto del Cura and the other establishments.”

The coast of Elche has six extensive beaches where the north is characterized by its dunes and the south by its pine forests. With 9 km of spaces of great ecological value such as the Carabassi dunes or the beaches of La Marina, the beaches of Elche are perfect enclaves for scuba diving and water sports due to their proximity to the Tabarca Island marine reserve.

The wide beach of El Altet, in its two kilometers of fine sand , forms a dune ecosystem that makes it a national benchmark, given the scarcity of this type of habitat in the national geography. It has been awarded a blue flag due to its quality and accessibility.

With almost three kilometres, Arenales del Sol beach is one of the most valued on the Alicante coast , both for the quality of its waters, the richness of its seabed and for its embryonic, mobile, fixed and even fossil dunes. It is the only area with an urban center facing the sea and it has a long promenade, equipped with wooden walkways to access the shore.

Beach of fine golden sand , formed by a system that combines recent high dunes, fossil dunes and pine forests of great geological and environmental value.
