Hallelujah Bar, is a very quaint bar, which merits a visit or two.Travelling inland it is well worth going through the Jalon Valley. This is agricultural country with almond/orange and lemon groves. The road can be quite narrow in places, especially through some of the villages. There are bodegas where you can have a wine tasting and purchase supplies at good prices. Try the local muscatel.
Pepe's, Beni Rossa and La Solana are others.
There are mountain passes through the Valley which take you to Altea or Benidorm. Although the routes are very scenic the roads can be narrow and the mountains high. A camera is essential on these trips.
