Make a holiday apartment in Playa de la Albufereta your home away from home

If you want the shopping, culture and entertainment of a city break coupled with the relaxation and fun of a beach holiday, take a look at the range of apartments in Playa de Albuferate on HomeAway. Most rentals are right next to the Mediterranean, boasting lovely views and with modern interiors encompassing all of the convenience and comfort you’d find in your own home. Gardens, air-conditioning and private pool access are just some of the facilities offered by holiday rentals in Playa de la Albufereta. The location of Playa de la Albufereta holiday homes, northwest of Alicante, is especially handy if you’re a non-driver, as there plenty of transport links.

Things to do

-Beaches. The closest beach is Albufereta, which is over 400 metres long and complemented by good services and facilities in the summer months. Just to west is Postiguet, which is Alicante’s main city beach, with white sand and the kind of colour and bustle you’d expect. For a little more seclusion there’s Playa de San Juan, which is seven kilometres in length and held as one of the best in Spain.

-History. Starting at Explanada de España by the seafront, the old-town is a maze of narrow streets, dotted with historic religious and civic buildings – it’s a picturesque spot for a wander. Just next to the old-town is the Castle of Santa Barbara, which goes back to the 800s. It’s hard to miss because it sits 160 metres above the city on Mount Benacantil.

-Golf. Alicante shines, even in a region recognised for its top courses. Club de Golf Alicante is an 18-hole course just a few minutes from Playa de la Albufereta – it was designed by Seve Ballesteros and has first-class facilities. A cheaper choice is the “pay and play” at El Platnío with a well maintained par 72 backed by mountains.

-Cuisine. Some of Alicante’s best cafes and bars can be found on the esplanade, and the new leisure district by the breakwater is a trendy place for an evening meal with a memorable view of the city. One of the most important regional products is rice, which forms the basis of the famous paella, and local arroz a la alicantinarice, which has chicken and shellfish.

-Days out. Away from the beach, you’ll never be stuck for things to do if you’re visiting Alicante with children. That’s because Benidorm is a comfortable car trip away, and has exciting and fun-packed family attractions. Terra Mitica and Terra Natura sit next door to each other – the former is a theme park with rides and shows to suit all visitors, while Terra Natura is an imaginatively laid-out waterpark.

Weather in Playa de la Albufereta

If you visit a Playa de la Albufereta holiday apartment in July or August then you’re likely to have lots of warm and sunny weather in store.

May, June, September and October are also warm - the end of the summer is prone to heavy downpours, but these are brief and isolated. Winters are very moderate here, and it’s not unusual for temperatures to get close to 20 degrees, even in February or March.

Travel to Playa de la Albufereta

It took us a while to find out that the oven also is the microwave, maybe we should travel more :) Location couldn't be better, just 10 minutes walk from the beach and surrounded by restaurants, cafes, shops. Bus stop by doorstep. Don't miss the amazing views from the roof terrace specially when the sun is going down, just breath taking. Rosario and her daughter were amazing hosts and we will definitely stay again. Thank you for allowing us stay one extra night.
