Alicante Holidays

Alicante Holidays – Likeable Mediterranean city with incredible beaches

Alicante is perhaps the most rewarding of destinations on the Costa Blanca. This likeably relaxed city has amazingly spacious beaches with superb quality sand. It also has some of the finest and longest palm-lined promenades in Spain.

Walking is a pleasure. Nicely contrasting sights include an attractive old town, a stylish shopping centre, a sparkling marina, a characterful harbour, a hilltop castle and the colourful flower-decked streets of Barrio de la Santa Cruz. Lively beaches are great for older children and teenagers. You will also find outstanding parks and the best cultural scene in the region.

Less dependence on foreign visitors means the best choice of restaurants and tapas bars on the entire Costa. A genuinely Spanish nightlife scene centres on the narrow streets of the Old Town. Summer visitors will find more tourist-orientated nightlife at Playa San Juan. Take a boat to tiny Tabarca Island and spend a day in amazing Benidorm. Buses and trains make it easy to visit attractive resorts like Altea and Villajoyosa.
