Alicante

Spain

What do you love most about Alicante?

"Alicante is the perfect size; the city centre with bars, restaurants and shops is only a few minutes walk from the amazing beach and waterfront where you can sunbathe, swim and relax!"

Any must-dos for first-time visitors to Alicante?

"Be sure to climb the historic Santa Barbara Castle above the town centre for panoramic views. Take some drinks and enjoy the sunset for a true Alicante experience!"

Favourite time of year to visit Alicante

"Spring or Autumn are both great times to visit, the weather is warm and sunny. There are also fewer tourists about so you can better enjoy the beaches and bars."

What else can I see in the area?

"The whole coastline north and south of Alicante is stunning, with sandy beaches and amazing rock formations, or you can take a day trip on the ferry to the heavenly island of Tabarca!"

Favourite way to spend a day in Alicante?

"Head to the beach and play some volleyball at the free public nets, jump in the sea to cool off between games and then stroll to a local bar for tapas and a jug of tinto de verano in the evening."
