Why Go to Alicante

About 100 miles south of Valencia and along the Costa Blanca (White Coast) is Alicante, an easygoing Spanish city that's highly favored among the party set. You'll most likely find them congregated around the Explanada de España, donning resort wear with drink in hand and bobbing to the house-music beat. During the day, the beaches are the main event — especially San Juan Beach, one of Spain's best strips of shore, replete with soft sands, about 330 days of sunshine a year and warm water. Although there are cultural attractions like the acclaimed Museo Arqueológico, the main reason to visit Alicante is to relax and make merry. So, imagine: the sun on your skin, sand between your toes, grilled fish on your fork, a glass of sangria in your hand, lively music in your ears, a medieval castle, a Renaissance cathedral or a modern fountain before your eyes … Alicante.

Alicante Travel Tips

Best Months to Visit

The best time to visit Alicante is any time of the year. With mild temperatures and an average of about 20 days of rain per year, Alicante is hospitable year-round. For the best beach weather, visit June through September (be warned, the sand will be the most crowded at this time, too). But if you want a chilled-out vacation, visit in the winter; you'll enjoy temperatures in the 50s, as well as deals on hotel rates.
