Alicante lies along the southeastern border of the Spanish Mediterranean coast. The location has extreme variances in landscape from clear water, sandy beaches to palm studded mountaintops. Centuries of culture combine with modern convenience in a picturesque setting that boasts mild winters and warm summers.
Miles of nearly white sandy beaches line the coastline, allowing plenty of room to bask in the sun or engage in numerous water activities. Canoeing and kayaking are popular recreational sports, or attend a sailing school and captain a yacht. Ferries provide tours to the neighboring islands and along the coast. Snorkel or scuba dive in the clear turquoise waters with visibility up to 25m. Advanced divers have the opportunity to explore as many as 15 local shipwrecks at depths of up to 100m. Alicante has many promenades including a large path along the coast. Enjoy the marina activity from the shore or visit numerous cafes, restaurants and shops along the way. Guests are entertained by the many street performers on the promenade during the summer.
Rising high above the city lays Mount Benacantil, upon which stands the historic Castle of Santa Barbara. The original fortress was built by Moors in the 10th century and was expanded upon during the 16th and 18th centuries. The monumental site contains the palace, dungeons, lookout tower and moat. A path winds up the back side of the mountain for the athletic and adventurous, but many visitors take the elevator to the mountain’s peak. Besides exploring the vast property and history of the location, visitors are treated to a panoramic view of the ocean, shoreline and Alicante.
The Old Quarter of the city is nestled on the slopes of Mount Benacantil. This area dates back to Greco-Roman times and sections of medieval walls remain apparent along with modern architecture. A favorite nightlife venue known as el barrio contains bars, restaurants and pubs, providing adult entertainment when the sun goes down. A path leading upward from behind the magnificent Town Hall leads to many old world sites. Colorful houses decorated with flowers line the narrow, steep pathway. The Plaza de Quijano is one of many old squares in Alicante. Also on the journey, visitors see ancient fountains and ermita of San Rogue, which dates back to the 16th century and contains a Gypsy Christ.
Alicante has many beautiful parks in which to bike, stroll, walk or just relax and enjoy the scenery. Canaledas Park has stone sculptures in the entrance and at various destinations throughout the vast space that includes 100 year old rubber plants and water fountains. El Palmeral encompasses over 70,000 square meters of serene beauty with beds of flowering plants, lakes, palm trees and natural waterfalls. The city also contains numerous entertainment theme parks housing exotic, marine and zoo animals.
