Why you should go to Alicante

Alicante is a popular holiday destination in the south east of Spain. As both a city and port on the Costa Blanca coastline, Alicante is the perfect spot if you’re looking to escape reality for a short while.

Filled with stunning architecture and rich in culture, Santa Bárbara Castle and Guadalest Valley are both must-sees on your trip. For those looking for blue flag beaches and cobbled, medieval streets, Javea is the place for you. Just an hour away from central Alicante by car, this is an ideal location for those on the hunt for much needed rest and relaxation. Nearby town Denia oozes Spanish charm which is best known for its authentic seafood restaurants - visit here and sample some of the freshest paella you can find.

Of course, there’s plenty more to this part of Spain than blue skies and beaches - nightlife in Alicante is vibrant and the shopping is second to none. We also recommend a visit to buzzing Benidorm, which is located just over half an hour away. Fancy dress and bucking broncos aside, Benidorm offers brilliant entertainment available for all ages.

When you should go to Alicante

Tourists flock to Alicante and its surrounding areas during the summer holiday peak season, meaning that July and August are the best times to visit with little ones of school age. For those looking to chase the sun but beat the crowds, we recommend planning your visit during May or October.
