Stroll along the Explanada de España

This long path, also known as the Paseo de la Explanada, runs alongside the marina and is great to visit Alicante by the seaside and mingle in its atmosphere. This street is very popular and goes up to the Park of Canalejas. The pattern on the floor is very typical and looks great on pictures.

Sail to the Island of Tabarca

This little island is situated in front of Alicante at about one hour by boat. There, you can visit the marina and discover beautiful coves and beaches. By the way, the waters of this island are declared a Mediterranean Marine Reserve. You can also enjoy the local cuisine, and try for example the caldero which is fresh fish served with potatoes and rice with aioli.

Enjoy the sunset on the beach

The Almadraba beach is the perfect spot to look at an amazing sunset over the sea. This quiet and small beach is a little further from the city and thus allows to relax completely. The fine and golden sand welcomes you for a moment of pure relaxation.

Discover the Castle of Santa Barbara

Situated on top of mount Benacantil, it will allow you to enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view. This castle was taken back from the Arabs and then bombed several times in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. It is now open to the public. It is a good way to make yourself familiar with the local and Spanish history in an amazing scenery.

Visit the Plaza de Toros

The Bull rings are a major part of the Spanish culture, especially in Alicante. These ones are the oldest in the Region of Valencia and they are still hosting bull fights. Since they were renovated, there is a second floor which allows to welcome even more people. This is an excellent way of discovering the bullfighting universe.
