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.
The last week in September sees the Moors and Christians Festival in Altea followed by Calpe's celebrations on 21-24 October. Get up to Jesús Pobre on 9-11 October for the fiestas of the "Cabrerot", where you'll be treated to a procession, bull runs, open-air dancing, games and more.
Take a safari jeep to join a convoy driving around the majestic sierras behind Benidorm and leave the beach and crowds behind. marcopolo-exp.es
Escape into the mountains behind the coastal plain of the Costa Blanca. The National Park of Puig Campana, the symbolic mountain of the Sierra Aitana, contains indigenous flora found nowhere else in Europe, from the majestic mountain orchid to the humble shepherd's fern.
