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.
