No la recomiendo, esta muy masificada. Si buscar tranquilidad y conectar con el mar no es tu sitio. Es una pena que esta Olaya señor encuentre en un estado tan deplorable a nivel de conservación, se pueden encontrar residuos de todo tipo en las aguas...
No es la mejor de Alicante, pero es lo que tiene estar tan en el centro. Muchísima gente, y bastante deficiente en limpieza. Creo que la única ventaja que tiene es lo cerca que está, por lo que no es necesario coger el coche si vives por el centro.
