The historic streets of El Barrio really come alive when the sun goes down, luring a trendy crowd with an immense range of bars and music venues.

While Alicante and Benidorm are the Costa Blanca’s major nightlife hubs, there is much post-sunset fun to be had in other towns along the coast.
Jávea is packed with friendly pubs, karaoke bars and live music hangouts, while Altea does a funky line in jazz and flamenco bars. Torrevieja’s promenade and Old Town also throng with bars, pubs and open-air music venues.
In other words, wherever you stay on this zingy coastline, you certainly won’t be short of places to party.
