Alicante See & Do


Famous for its magnificent, palm-lined boulevard, quality shopping and magnificent setting, Alicante was originally called ‘Lucentum’, the ‘City of Light’. An attractive mix of gorgeous beaches, old plazas, outdoor adventure and great weather, Alicante is the perfect choice for tourists looking for culture, relaxation and sun-drenched fun..

Must see attractions in Alicante

The Castle of Santa Barbara is one of the biggest mediaeval fortresses in Spain and the number one stop for any visitor. Located in the centre of Alicante, this incredible structure overlooks city from the peak of Mount Benacantil. Visit the castle for a spot of history as well as spectacular vistas – and while there, remember to look out over El Postiguet beach for Moor's Head (it looks like a human face). Afterwards, return to the old town via Parque de la Ereta for refreshing sea breezes and lovely views.

Head to the luxurious marina for fine dining, shopping and boat trips. A busy area both night and day, it is the perfect spot for purchasing souvenirs and gifts or relaxing over quality food with unbeatable sea views. If you’d prefer to swim and lounge on the sand, there are a host of beaches in Alicante, but one of the most popular is San Juan Beach; only 4 km outside of the city and boasting a Blue Flag award, it is the perfect place for some relaxation.

For a more active break, visit some of the beautiful parks in the city. Canalejas Park is the oldest and home to gorgeous fountains and amazing statues, while EL Palmeral on the outskirts of the city is home to hundreds of shady palms and boasts impressive waterfalls and lakes. Parque del Morant offers gentle, shaded walkways and an open-air theatre that houses performances in the summer months.

Also visit the smaller but just as interesting Castillo de San Fernando on Tossal Hill, and the gothic Iglesia de Santa Maria; built between the 14th and 16th centuries, this pretty church is renowned for its Baroque interior and art collection. The town hall behind La Explanada Park is a dramatic structure and a stunning example of baroque architecture, while the Cathedral of San Nicolas has an impressive dome and lovely gardens to stroll around. .

Scenic drives in Alicante

Collect your hire car at Alicante Airport and head to the wonderful Caves of Canelobre; just 25 km from Alicante, these underground caverns boasts an array of stalactites and stalagmites with a 70 m high central cavern. From here, continue on to the nearby village of Busot to view the magnificent Golden Hill and 12th-century Moorish fort.

Tibi Castle is another popular scenic drive from Aliante; head out of the city on the A7 north, onto the CV-810, to witness one of the most scenic driving routes in the Costa Blanca region. A quiet, traditional village, Tibi is home to a myriad of whitewashed houses, the ruins of Moorish Tibi Castle surrounded by mountains and historic Castilla de Tibi. It takes approximately one hour to reach and is well worth the effort.

Car Hire Alicante

With the atmospheric El Barrio old quarter at the foot of the Cathedral of San Nicolas, its numerous pubs and bars and stunning port, Alicante is a bustling and beautiful city worth exploring. The Santa Barbara Castle medieval fortress on top of Mount Benacantil is an awe-inspiring landmark. Beaches are plentiful and varied, such as the huge boulevard and marina of Postiguet or the 90m stretch of white sand and surf at San Juan. For shopping, try the historic 17th century Central Mercado with its eclectic architecture and amazing fresh produce including fresh and salted fish, fruits, vegetables and baked goods.
