Alicante on the Costa Blanca, is one of the most popular destinations with British travellers. Its clear warm blue seas, choice of beaches and activities, make it a great place to relax.

Built on a former industrial port town which has changed hands on several occasions, Alicante has been revived for the visitor. There are ancient sites, theme parks, markets, shopping centres, great golf courses, wine tasting activities and traditional tapas restaurants. It is possibly one of the most popular places in Europe to take a beach holiday.

By day, the surrounding Costa Blanca will provide a challenging golfing holiday – a superb selection of courses with astonishing views await you. Scuba diving, windsurfing, jet skiing and other water sports are all taught and offered here in the clear waters which are comfortably warm all year round.

Families will be happy with the level of safety and attractions available for kids. There are water parks in Benidorm, animal parks, beach entertainment and city parks with towering palms to explore.

Alicante’s cultural heritage includes sites from Goth, Roman and Arab occupation. As a result, the hill-top castle, city centre, town hall and even residential areas are a curious patchwork of different architectural styles. These streets play host to nationally renowned festivals throughout the year.

If you are planning some nightlife action during your holiday, Alicante nightclubs are amongst the most varied in Spain.
