Best Times to Visit Alicante

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.

April-September

Springtime averages settle in the upper 60s, and summer sees temperatures in the 80s. April and May will see fewer tourists than the June through September peak season.
 

Key Events:

  • Las Hogueras de San Juan (Late June)
  • Alicante Summer Festival (July-August)

October-March

Alicante in the fall enjoys temperatures that hover in the 50s and 60s. You can still go to the beach, but you'll probably need a wetsuit. Winter is the best time to take advantage of discounted hotel rates.
 

Key Events:

  • New Year's Eve (December)
  • Carnaval (March)
