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. These months are the hottest of the year, bringing temperatures that climb above 30 degrees during the day. 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

Holiday homes in Playa de Albufereta are easy to get to from the UK, as the local airport, Alicante (ALC) is one of the best connected in Spain. There are routes to this destination from almost every international airport in the UK, mostly with budget carriers. Once you get there you’ll be able to catch the Subús Alcoyana, Line C-6 to central Alicante, and the tram from there to Albufereta. By road it’s also simple – you just need to use the A-70 from the airport, which will take you almost all the way to your destination, turning off for the N-382.

Basic but clean apartment close to the cafes and restaurants and a 10 - 15 min walk to the beach

4 of 5
The apartment is in an old Alicante block with all its charms and quirky layout. The interior was basic but clean and had everything you'd want for short stay. Only downside is no real outside space to enjoy a coffee and croissant however it's only a minute away from many cafes, bars and restaurants. The beach is also a short 10 - 15 minute walk away. The apartment is easy to get to with 20 min C6 bus from the airport dropping you 5 mins away. The tram is also in easy reach if you want to go further afield. Special mention also goes to David who let us into the apartment and gave us a run down of the local area. He was also very flexible with the check out time allowing us to enjoy our last day prior to catching a later flight. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

Best family chill out zone in Alicante.

5 of 5
Family holiday at this location 1st - 15th July, nine adults and three children. The villa has enough space for couples to have quite time around the grounds or in three reception rooms, one that is for adults only. Two kitchens, smaller one for light meals the larger one for family cooking all modern utensils. Coffee pot was cracked on closer inspection, Manolo had this replaced within two hours with a brand new machine. Excellent service. Any faults during our stay Manolo had the issues cleared within the hour ie fridge leaking, toilet not flushing. Would recommend this Villa to family and friends, in the process of planning our return next year. Public transport is excellent, bus trip to the city €1:45, taxi €10:50 single trip. SuperMarket 10 minute walk, check timings. Santa Faz, 7 minute walk, couple of small bars/cafe and a hotel plus open air market. Alicante is not a major tourist area as yet and English speakers are few. Our son had an app that translates English to Spanish that helped a lot but you miss out on learning a few words of Spanish. Would I do anything different? Yes, I would hire my own car and bikes.
