Escape the cold weather this winter with a sun holiday to Alicante! Visiting in winter means you can explore to your hearts content without scorching summer temperatures and busy crowds, perfect for those seeking a relaxing holiday with still plenty to see and do.
#1 Go Sightseeing
We recommend a visit to the Santa Barbara Castle; the main attraction for tourists, located in the centre of Alicante sitting high up on a hill overlooking the city.
#2 Visit the Beach
With an average temperature of around 13 °C in Alicante in winter, a swim in the sea is probably off the cards! But that’s not to say a trip to the beach for a relaxing stroll should go a miss as you take in the refreshing breeze, crushing waves and sunshine.
#3 Go Shopping
Head to the Promenade Explanada de España for a spot of shopping and a coffee.
#4 Eat Out
One of the best things about Alicante is that it’s a vibrant city with plenty of restaurants and bars open all-year-round. Visit a tapas bar for some traditional Spanish cuisine and winter will soon be forgotten.
#5 Experience the Mercado Central
Mercado Central is a historic central market packed with almost every butcher and fish monger in town. It’s a lively place with a great atmosphere and is best visited during breakfast time.
#6 Dance the Night Away
One of the best nightlife spots in Alicante is El Barrio Antiguo (the Old District), rimmed with popular street-side bars and night clubs guaranteed to keep you busy all night long! If you’re looking for live music we recommend Café Loft on Muchavista Beach.
