Museos Flotantes

Costa Blanca

Anchored at the dock are a submarine and an old customs boat, both of which you can clamber aboard to explore. Onshore alongside are various other vessels and an array of nautical and naval museum pieces. Closed if raining and also in late June for maintenance. You've got to be at least 1.15m in height to board the sub.
