ALICANTE WEATHER

Alicante, a charming city on the south-east coast of Spain, beckons visitors with a perfect blend of history, culture and coastal beauty. Situated on the Costa Blanca, Alicante is a gem that captivates travellers with its warm Mediterranean climate, stunning beaches and vibrant atmosphere.

 

Santa Bárbara Castle

Dominating the city’s skyline, Santa Bárbara Castle sits atop Mount Benacantil, offering panoramic views of Alicante and the azure Mediterranean Sea. With a rich history dating back to the 9th century, the castle offers a fascinating journey through time, showcasing different architectural styles and serving as a testament to the city’s past.

Explanada de España

A walk along the Explanada de España, a picturesque promenade lined with palm trees and colourful mosaic tiles, is a quintessential Alicante experience. This lively boulevard runs parallel to the seafront and is perfect for a leisurely stroll, filled with street performers, cafes and shops. The Mediterranean backdrop adds to the charm, creating the perfect setting for a relaxing afternoon.

Postiguet Beach

Alicante boasts Postiguet Beach, a crescent-shaped haven of golden sand nestled between the city and the sea. With its clear waters and views of the castle in the background, this beach is an ideal place to sunbathe, swim or enjoy a seafood meal at one of the many restaurants by the sea.

Barrio de la Santa Cruz

Wander the narrow streets of Barrio de la Santa Cruz, a historic neighbourhood characterised by whitewashed houses adorned with vibrant bougainvillea. This charming area exudes a relaxed, traditional Spanish atmosphere, complete with cosy plazas, flower-filled balconies and local craft shops.

Alicante's old town

Immerse yourself in Alicante’s rich history by exploring the old town, where ancient streets wind around important landmarks such as the Cathedral of San Nicolas. With its Baroque and Gothic elements, the cathedral is a testament to the city’s religious heritage.

Mercado Central

For a taste of local flavours, visit the Mercado Central, Alicante’s central market. Here you can sample fresh produce, regional delicacies and mingle with friendly locals. The market is a vibrant showcase of Alicante’s culinary diversity.

Museo de Las Hogueras de San Juan

The museum of the Hogueras de San Juan is a must for a visit with the whole family. The museum exhibits various dolls, the so-called “indultats ninots”, dolls that were not burned during the “Noche de San Juan”, a festival that is celebrated throughout Spain.

Museo Archeológico

The Archaeological Museum (also known as MARQ) has a number of very interesting collections that reflect the history of the city and the Costa Blanca throughout the different times and civilizations. The museum has a number of consecutive halls, making you a journey from prehistory, through Iberian culture, Roman culture, and the Middle Ages to modern and contemporary cultures.

Modernist architecture:

Alicante also boasts modernist architecture, exemplified by buildings such as Casa Carbonell and the Central Market. These structures show a different facet of the city, combining contemporary design with historic charm.

When the sun goes down, Alicante comes alive with a vibrant nightlife scene. The Explanada and surrounding areas offer an abundance of bars, cafes and clubs, ensuring that visitors can enjoy the city’s energy long after the day has turned to night. Whether you’re looking for cultural enrichment, relaxation on the beach or a taste of Spain’s vibrant nightlife, Alicante promises a varied and unforgettable experience.
