Historic town on Spain's Costa Blanca

Alicante is the capital of the province of the same name in south-eastern Spain.

The charming town with its beautiful historic centre and lively marina is the ideal starting point for the dream beaches of the Costa Blanca.

Old town with charm and Spanish joie de vivre

The old town of Alicante radiates pure Spanish life - with brightly painted house facades and winding alleys, small shops, restaurants and cafés. The Castillo di Santa Bárbara towers high above the historic centre with a breathtaking view of the bay.
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MACA), where works of art by Picasso or Miró can be seen, offers top-class art enjoyment.

A sundowner at the marina is a "must" for every visitor before turning night into day with the locals in the bars and clubs of the Barrios de Santa Cruz.


The colours of your holiday? Beach: golden yellow, water: turquoise

The Spanish Costa Blanca is famous for its wonderful sandy beaches and crystal clear, turquoise waters. The coast offers something for everyone, from the lively beaches of Benidorm to secluded bays and romantic coastal towns like Altea, Denia or Villajoyosa. A day on the picturesque island of Tabarca is also a special experience. In the hinterland of the province is the town of Elche with its palm grove, which has been declared a World Heritage Site.

Along the coast near Alicante, visitors can enjoy 12 golf courses with magnificent views over the Mediterranean. The mild temperatures all year round also guarantee perfect golfing enjoyment. Information on the golf courses is summarised here.
