Located on the southeastern coast, Alicante is the beating heart of Spain’s Costa Blanca. Holidays in Alicante offer gorgeous beaches, local attractions, a vibrant marina along with lively nightlife. The town’s seaside spots are the main draw with fine sandy beaches, pretty coves, clear waters and strings of buzzing bars and restaurants. If you want a taste of history, the town has grand historic buildings and traditional Spanish squares to enjoy. Some of the best places to visit in Alicante are Castle of Santa Barbara, Explanada de España, Archaeological Museum, Casco Antiguo, Basilica of Santa María, Alicante’s Towers and Contemporary Art Museum. You can also go for beach excursions and boat rides to the nearby beaches. Postiguet Beach is the nearest serviceable beach located right next to the old town.

 

Nearest airport to the city, Alicante-Elche Airport is located in the municipality of Elche, about 9km southwest of Alicante. The city is perfectly safe to visit and is an all-round destination for families and couples alike. This Spanish marvel is known for its vibrant and happening nightlife. Besides sightseeing and shopping during the day, there are vibrant bars, nightclubs, and entertainment to enjoy during the evening. Alicante holidays are best taken during the months of April to September, it’s spring during these months so you can joyfully bask in the spring sun with comfortable temperatures for day trips and activities.

Beach life

 

 

Beach life

The Alicante coastline is blessed with golden sands and crystal shallows. You can enjoy Playa del Postiguet which is slap bang in the city or head along the coast to discover lovely nearby resorts and quiet stretches. Calpe and Denia are popular day trips or great places to stay for a few nights. Playa del Postiguetis is busiest on Sundays when Spanish families flock to the beach. Once you’ve topped up your tan, find a bar for a sundowner on the lovely palm-fringed promenade.

Stay Up Late for Spanish Nights

 

Stay Up Late for Spanish Nights

Whether you're looking for sangria and tapas to share or a flavoursome paella, Alicante dining is set to impress. The city’s laid back but buzzing vibe is reflected in its bar scene – mingle with the locals at an outside table at venues like Bar Bordabelli. If you want to take the party further, head to the El Barrio area.

 
Head to Shoe Heaven

 

Head to Shoe Heaven

This town boasts all the big high street names, plus the spectacular Spanish department store El Corte Ingles, but Alicante really comes into its own as a shoe lover’s mecca. Calle Girona is a street almost entirely devoted to shoe shops! Indulge in retail therapy in the early evening when it’s cool and calm.

 
Discover What’s On the Doorstep

 

 

Discover What’s On the Doorstep

It’s easy to have a wonderful holiday without leaving the beautiful beaches of Alicante but with so many tempting treats within striking distance, you’ll want to explore further! The Castle of Santa Barbara is at the summit of the town and boasts beautiful views of the coast. For those who want to discover more of the countryside, saddle up with Rancho La Ofra and trek on horseback through the spectacular Guadalest Valley. With endless sunny days, holidaymakers to Costa Blanca will love being on the water and just an hour from Alicante is the coastal gem of Jávea, where you can kayak through the cliffs.
