Cheap flights to Alicante
Alicante, known as the ‘City of the Sun’ has become one of Spain’s tourism hotspots. Wedged between picturesque mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, the city enjoys sunny weather all year round, which makes it an idyllic holiday destination at any time of the year.
Located along the world-renowned Costa Blanca, Alicante has a distinctly Spanish feel, from its traditional annual festivals to the winding streets of its historic quarter and its beautiful café and palm-lined promenades. Due to the city’s compact size it’s easy to get around on foot. Spend the morning shopping around Avenida de Frederico, grab some tapas in the Plaza de Montaceta for lunch, and spend the evening in the bars and clubs of the medieval El Barrio area. Or alternatively just lie back and soak up the sun on its miles and miles of pristine white sand beaches, just don’t forget the factor 30.
Gata de Gorgos offers the opportunity to buy typical Spanish cane and basketwear in its many handcraft shops.

Campello is a modern residential area set in a bay between Villajoyosa and Alicante where you'll be greeted by kilometres of white sandy beaches, with the blue sea still warm enough for bathing in January.
Escape to the ancient Moorish mountain village of Finestrat Pueblo, which received its Royal Charter in the 13th century. And don't miss the beautiful Gothic church built outside the village walls in the 18th century.
