Destination guide

Unwind in a private Alicante Province holiday home

Alicante Province is one of the most popular corners of the Spanish coast. It curves beautifully around the Mediterranean Sea, and the rising mountains of Murcia and Valencia, to offer up the gorgeous Costa Blanca, a 125-mile strip of spirited resorts and gold-flecked beaches that all spill into crystal-clear waters. Towns like Benidorm and Calpe are well-versed in sun, sea, sand and, all the other treats that come with an escape to southern Europe. Meanwhile, Alicante Province holiday lettings inland can be found studding rugged sierras and empty valleys – they're a chance to get away from it all in the Iberian countryside.

Things to do

Main attractions around Alicante Province holiday rentals

Start by clambering up to the soaring Santa Barbara Castle in Alicante town. Its bulwarks have protected the coast since the Moors ruled these parts. These days, they offer breathtaking panoramas of the Med and the shimmering sands of Playa del Postiguet, below. A boat trip across to the rugged and remote isle of Tabarca can mean swapping the energy of the Costa Blanca for rocky shores and world-class snorkelling spots. Adventurers might like to delve into the carved mountains behind the regional capital, where the Canelobre Caves shoot underground to reveal colossal chambers cut into the rock. Others will prefer to stick to the coast, which hits a zenith at the stunning Serra Gelada Natural Park – a crash of giant cliffs that descend straight into cobalt seas.

How to get around

Getting around Alicante Province

How you choose to get around will depend on where it is you need to go. A car rental is the most versatile choice. It'll give you the freedom to cruise the palm-lined coast roads or escape to the rising sierras to discover more off-the-beaten-path villa rentals in Alicante Province's wild countryside. If you know you want to stick to the shore, where lovely playas and happening resorts seem to hide around every headland, then you might not need your own wheels.
