Why go to Alicante

If you want to experience true Spain on the Costa Blanca, Alicante is the place to be. Dubbed the ‘city of light’ by the Romans, Alicante has got it all: history, culture, fiestas, delicious food, thrilling nightlife, year-round sunshine – and a long sandy beach to relax or play on. Whether you’re after a cheap, all-inclusive package deal or a luxury five-star retreat for your holidays, Alicante will not disappoint.

Start your Mediterranean adventure

Find your bearings with a glorious 360° view over the city from the 9th-century castle perched on Mount Benacantil, then sip a ‘granizado’ (crushed ice drink) as you stroll down Explanada de España, where locals gather to play boules or natter on the palm-shaded benches.

Soak up the rays on Playa del Postiguet, Alicante’s lively beach, before cooling off in Concatedral de San Nicolás, a 17th-century relic in El Barrio – the old town.

Alternatively, spend a lazy afternoon in one of Alicante’s fascinating museums, then kick off a night of revelry with a cocktail in one of the many bars by the harbour or back in El Barrio, where nook-and-cranny bars and clubs will entertain you in true Spanish style until the early hours. Viva Espana!

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
