The Best Alicante Holidays | Book Spain Holidays!

Very like Faro in Portugal, Alicante is often mistakenly thought of as only the location of an airport, when in fact it is a vibrant resort that has an awful lot to offer its visitors. 

Often known as the gateway to the Costa Blanca due to the airport, you don’t actually travel through the Valencian city when transferring to other resorts, and this may be why it is less popular than neighbouring resorts.

Alicante is actually a very picturesque destination for a holiday, and has everything that you would expect from a Mediterranean resort. 

The climate boasts year round sunshine and there is a wide enough range of activities to satisfy holidaymakers of all ages. 

With wonderful beaches, castles, galleries, museums, shops and dozens of places to explore on the doorstep, you should really make the most of Alicante this summer. 

Alicante airport transfers make it easy to travel into the city at various points during the day if you’d rather not hire a car during your trip.

The beaches deserve a special mention as they are some of the loveliest, unspoilt stretches of golden sands that you will find anywhere. 

Whether you want to lie and relax while soaking up the rays or try your hand at one of the many water sports on offer, you will find a spot to satisfy your needs.


Safe for children and spotlessly clean, it may be hard to tear yourself away from the beaches, but you will miss out on a lot if you don’t.

Both kids and adults alike will enjoy exploring the many fortresses that are in existence in Alicante, and one of the best is the Santa Barbara Castle. 

This is perched on the summit of Benacantil Mountain, and has dungeons, a lookout tower giving stunning views of the city and surrounding area, as well as offering two cafes with a variety of refreshments. 

The early 19th century Castillo de San Fernando, which was built to defend the city against Napoleon, is also well worth a visit.

If you love to shop in between your trips to the beach or sightseeing, then you have come to the right place. 

Head for the Avenida de Maisonnave where you will find a huge variety of boutiques and other stores, perfect for splurging some of that holiday cash in.

The old quarter of Alicante, which dates back to Roman times, is also well worth a visit, especially if you like old buildings. 

There are some fascinating examples which are decorated with beautiful mosaics, and many examples of ancient architecture which are lovingly preserved.
