Alicante

Escaping to the Costa Blanca has never been easier with direct flights from Liverpool John Lennon Airport to Alicante (ALC). Sun worshippers will relish the opportunity to plan their Spanish getaway and with Ryanair, Blue Air or easyJet flight times just under 3 hours, there’s no excuse not to book your flight today!

Why you should go

Alicante is a central hub for holiday destinations in the south east of Spain, as well as being both a city and port on Spain’s Costa Blanca. If you’re looking to escape the reality for a short while, your first stop should be Alicante. Filled with stunning architecture and rich with culture, the Castle of Santa Barbara 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! Spanish charm also oozes from the nearby town of Denia, which is known for its authentic seafood restaurant – 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 would also recommend a visit to buzzing Benidorm, which is located just over half an hour away! Fancy dress and bucking bronco’s aside, Benidorm has some brilliant entertainment available for all ages.

When you should go

Tourists flock to Alicante and its surrounding areas during the summer holiday peak season, so this is the best time to visit with little ones. For those looking to chase the sun and beat the crowds, we would recommend you visit during May or October. 

Where you should stay

You’ll never struggle to find a place to stay in Alicante or Costa Blanca and it has accommodation to suit any kind of budget. Whether you’re looking for family friendly or couples only, you’re sure to find the perfect place after a bit of research. For city breakers try Alicante itself, or alternatively you could visit other popular hotspots such as Altea, Moraira and Elche.

Don’t miss!

Enhance your holiday and discover the Costa Blanca’s best kept secrets:

  • La Granadella, Javea – If you’re heading north towards Javea on your trip, La Granadella beach is one to keep an eye out for. Having twice won the award for ‘Spain’s Best Beach’, it’s a hotspot for divers and snorkelers due to the crystal blue waters. As you would expect, it can get pretty crowded so make sure you go early!
  • Montgo Natural Park – For the ultimate in breath-taking scenery, you must go to the Montgo Natural Park which is also located in Javea. After a number of rewarding walks in the Spanish countryside, expect to sleep well afterwards!
  • El Xato – You can find this restaurant in La Lucia, and with only 9 available tables it’s essential you book in advance. If you like high quality, traditional Mediterranean food then you’re in for a treat.
