Holidays to
Alicante City

Costa Blanca’s lively capital

With a traditional old quarter, two castles and gorgeous Baroque churches, Alicante has to be one of Spain’s most beautiful cities – and it’s one of the most fun, too. On Alicante holidays, you’ll be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of things to see and do at this popular resort on the Costa Blanca. Immerse yourself in historic sites, fantastic food, gorgeous natural scenery and plenty of places to party.

In the city itself, museums and art galleries will keep culture vultures happy, while foodies will have a field day sampling delicious Valencian specialities at Alicante’s restaurants and cafés. The resort is also popular with stag and hen parties, who come to enjoy Alicante’s legendary nightlife. There are plenty of cocktail bars and clubs where you can go wild until the wee hours of the morning. The next day, try some water sports, take a boat trip or simply catch up on some sleep at the beach. For all-round fun in the sun, holidays to Alicante have it covered.
