Enjoy holidays to Alicante
Alicante, on Spain’s Costa Blanca, between Murcia and Valencia, was founded over 3000 years ago. The oldest part of the town is now marked by the castle of Santa Barbara, and there are also Roman remains as well as Moorish and Christian relics. Plenty of sandy beaches, major international festivals, great nightlife and restaurants and numerous cultural attractions make Alicante a hugely popular tourist destination in this part of Spain. Flights to Alicante depart daily from many UK airports.
Why Alicante? Why not?
With Alicante holidays you can mix and match a wide range of activities, with plenty of things going on down at the beaches as well as a number of golf courses and other sporting facilities. The town itself, with its long and often bloody history, is packed with places of historic interest to explore, and there is a wide range of shopping on offer too, from colourful markets to major designer outlets. The climate is sublime, with the summers hot and even the winters balmy.
The beaches available when on holiday in Alicante are many and varied, but there is a good choice of wide, sandy ones, and during the day most of the town’s visitors come down here to sunbathe and indulge in water sports. Alicante is also big on golfing, with a number of courses and clubs. For more top beach destinations on the Costa Blanca, see deals on holidays to Benidorm and Calpe holidays.
You can take a day trip to the major Spanish cultural city of Valencia and have a packed day of sightseeing and shopping there. There are also boat trips along the adjoining coast and coach trips to resorts and towns further inland. With a short break, the sights and sounds of Alicante itself should be more than enough to keep you busy.
There is lots of international cuisine to be had in the restaurants of Alicante, and German, British, Chinese and French is especially common, but Spanish regional cuisine is way out ahead, served up in eateries lining the Plaza Sierra Mar in particular.
There is plenty to do in the evenings in Alicante, with numerous bars, discos, restaurants and nightclubs open until late and catering for all tastes in music and entertainment.
