    The second largest town of Valencia, Spain, Alicante is a vibrant town which has developed not as a tourist trap, but as a lively Spanish town with a huge appeal to tourists too. Although many visitors will spend their holiday between their accommodation in Alicante, the beaches and the bars, there are some marvellous museums and attractions to see too, as well as charming restaurants and shows to be visited.

    Things to do on holiday in Alicante, Spain

    Alicante accommodation is as popular as it is due to the proximity of the excellent Mediterranean beaches which line its front. Many of the fine golden sand beaches are awarded the coveted European Blue Flag each year, and people flock to villas in Alicante purely to lie back and relax with the fine sand between their toes.

    The Alicante Marina is the focal point of the Alicante seafront, and not only due to the great number of bars and restaurants which spring into life during the balmy evenings. The marina is surrounded by sailing schools and water sports centres offering scuba diving, canoeing, windsurfing and sailing. Cruises and fishing trips can also be easily organised, so if you fancy heading into the warm clear waters of the Mediterranean during your stay in an Alicante property, head for the marina.

    There are also 3 top class golf courses within 15km of accommodation in Alicante, all of which are open to the public. Alicante golf has helped the region to thrive as a tourist destination, due to the quality and scenery of the courses. Whilst on holiday you can also enjoy tennis, go-karting, horse riding and even flying.

    For those seeking a little culture during their stay in an Alicante villa, there is plenty to keep you entertained. The beautiful 16th Century Castillo de Santa Barbara is a beautiful spot to visit, offering both fine examples of Spanish sculpting and extraordinary views across the town and along the Mediterranean coast. The remains of the Roman city of Lucentum are also hugely worth visiting from an Alicante apartment, and there are some exquisite museums to give you a sense of the history of Alicante.
