The municipality of Sant Joan d’Alacant is located in a semiarid climate characterised by temperate and slightly wet winters combined with particularly long summers with scarce rain.

This climatology determines a type of vegetation, where the Mediterranean scrub and the Aleppo pine predominate.

An example of this type of landscape is found in the Forest Park in La Coix, located in the west area of the village. It is a space composed of different terraces from former crops of the orchard (carob, almond trees and olive trees), located in a thalweg whose slopes are home to a representation of the Mediterranean forest.

This park includes a recreational area equipped with tables, water, shades, recycling point and a viewpoint of the old Horta d’Alacant landscape.
