This museum is a little ironic: Modern art by the likes of Calder, Dalí and Picasso is housed in the city's oldest building. But the Museo de Arte del Siglo XX Asegurada (or the 20th Century Art Collection) has nearly 200 works displayed in the 17th-century baroque building. 

Admission is free, and it's open Tuesdays through Sundays with varying hours depending on the season. You'll find this museum on the Plaza de Santa María. For more information, visit the museum's website.

#1 San Juan Beach

You'll find this piece of shoreline just about 6 miles north of Alicante. Playa del San Juan is accessible by bus or tram, and it's known as one of Spain's best beaches, in fact, many travelers say it offers a better beach experience than you'll find at Postiguet. It's also pretty long (a little more than 4 miles), so you'll surely be able to carve out your own little space in the sand. And just behind the beach are restaurants, nightlife venues and even an 18-hole golf course.

One TripAdvisor user describes it like this: "Lovely soft, pebbleless sandy beach with all the facilities and safety anyone could want."
