Snapshot Guide

How about some fun in the sun! Alicante is the place to be for sun-seekers looking for miles of glorious beaches – like the Playa del Postiguet - sailing in the blue ocean waters or lounging all day with cocktails in hand.

Dotted around the beaches are Tapas bars, picturesque drinking spots and walking paths you can follow while chatting and enjoying the stunning scenery.

But there are things to see in Alicante as well. Santa Barbara castle, initially constructed in the 9th Century when the Iberian Peninsula was under Muslim authority, stands strong and lofty at the pinnacle of Mount Benacantil. Discover over a thousand years of history and some of the best view of Alicante and the surrounding region.

Alicante museum of contemporary arts is for the culture lovers and the curious. With brilliant displays, fresh and inspiring information it’s not hard to feel uplifted and impressed by what artists have worked hard to present to the world.

Explore Mercat Central d'Alacant – Alicante Central Market where you will be hard-pressed to find a more authentic, traditional, classic and varied place to find the best foods, fruit, fish, meat and more! It’s an amazing way to spend a couple of hours.

Dance the night away in one of an array of buzzing night spots. From trendy bars to large clubs, whatever you fancy you’ll find like-minded people, lots of laughs and night to remember for years.

Alicante is a fan-favourite and the prefect home away from home.
