Alicante

This beautiful region of Costa Blanca has long been favoured for its stunning beaches and exuberant nightlife. Dig a little deeper and you’ll soon discover its traditional Spanish roots too, permeating out through the narrow lanes of Alicante and its neighbouring towns.

Discover the lesser-known areas boasting an authentic Spanish feel. You won’t find any high-rise buildings in Javea, instead expect to see ancient narrow streets and traditional whitewashed houses. And you’re just as likely to dine on Spanish tapas and paella as English favourites like fish and chips. While Denia boasts a cosmopolitan port, large marina and palm-fringed main street dotted with cafes and designers shops. Beyond the beaches, there are fascinating cities to be explored. Take in the spectacular views from Santa Barbara Castle in Alicante or explore the rice fields and orange groves that surround Valencia.

Alicante

Alicante is a small Spanish city with lots to offer, from golden sandy beaches to an array of dining and nightlife options and unique monuments, museums and parks. Visit the Santa Barbara castle, with its great views across the city, or the famous promenade La Explanada de Espana. Shop until you drop at the Panoramis Complex and explore the narrow lanes of El Barrio, which are filled with a variety of bars. Head to Esplanada, where you can party until late.
