Beautiful beaches, a charming atmosphere and plenty of love to give - there's nothing Alicante doesn’t have to provide you with a holiday of a lifetime in 2020 or 2020. Alicante is located within the beautiful Costa Blanca region of southern Spain.

Things to do in Alicante
Towering over Alicante – in the region of Costa Blanca – is Mount Benacantil, whose Castle of Santa Barbara is one of the leading attractions in Alicante. Having served as everything from a city fortification to a prison, this medieval fortress’s history-soaked walls and fabulous views towards Benidorm are among the key things to do in Alicante.
Alicante is blessed with miles of glorious Mediterranean coastline. Sunny beaches here are among the most beautiful in the region, and Playa del Postiguet is particularly recommended. This beach stands almost a kilometre wide, its palm-fringed promenade bustling with bars and restaurants. Choose from a range of hotels and pick the best deals on flights and holidays to make the most of your Alicante holiday.
Best beaches in Alicante
In terms of Alicante attractions, there is nowhere better for relaxing and unwinding than the island of Tabarca, one of the top picks of sights in the whole of the Costa Blanca. Just five kilometres off the mainland, its waters are a protected marine reserve while the island itself offers a time-capsule glimpse into Spanish history. Known as the ‘pirate island’ due to its long years of occupancy by pirates, the island was then fortified and is now Spain’s smallest inhabited island.
Thick walls circle around a collection of quirky buildings including a solitary church and a lighthouse, with museums and hotels reflecting Tabarca’s significance as a tourist hotspot. With a population of fewer than 60 people, this tranquil island represents one of the most memorable things to do in the area– it can be reached in 45 minutes from the city’s harbour.
Costa Blanca is all the about beaches, and not just in Alicante. One of the top perks of this stretch of coastline is the excellent road system that connects the various resorts. With access to other areas on the Costa Blanca, such as Benidorm or Albir, there's no reason why you should ever be short of a new beach to explore.
