Alicante is a port city in Costa Blanca on the south coast of Spain, bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The ferry port is used as the gateway to Africa, more specifically Algeria, with crossings to Oran, Mostaganem and Algiers on the Algerian north coast.
The sandy beaches, cheap bars and myriad hotels have become a haven for Brits in the summer months, descending onto Alicante in the hope for a temporary tan and a few evenings to enjoy the frenetic nightlife. However, contrary to popular belief, Alicante is more than just a hub of drunken holidaymakers – if you were to explore beyond the complexes of hotels and restaurants you’d discover a tapestry of interesting landmarks and historical architecture. After exploring the waterfront and town squares, the debauched reputation will seem increasingly gratuitous.
In spite of the grand buildings and sanguine cafes, it would be a shame to visit Alicante and not take advantage of the beautiful beaches; San Juan Beach is the standout in a sea of options, offering a peaceful atmosphere amid a plethora of excursions. The perfect place to lay down your towel, grab a refreshing drink and watch the sea mix into the horizon.
Most areas will be within walking distance and if not, taxis are readily available all over the city.
