It is just a 17 minute drive from the airport to the bustling quayside in the heart of Alicante. Over time this ancient port has transformed from a crowded trading harbour into an attractive marina, filled with colourful yachts and surrounded by restaurants and bars where visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery.
Looming over the port and the rest of the city is the magnificent Castle of Santa Bárbara, built in the 9th Century on the peak of Mount Benacantil. Today the castle is open for visitors to explore, and the energetic can climb winding streets up the steep slopes to reach it, while the more leisurely can pay to ride an elevator through the very core of the mountain. Once at the summit walking around the ruined fortress is free and offers spectacular views of the town and port.
If you prefer your walks with less mountains in them Alicante has several pleasant promenades which can be strolled down at a leisurely pace. Most notable of these is the Explanada de España, which offers a serene seaside amble along a marble pavement with a striking wave pattern. The promenade is often the venue for street music performance and other entertainers.
Alicante's old town, El Barrio, has a charming range of boutiques, cafes and ancient streets to explore, but it is when the sun sets that the area really comes to life. The quarter is filled with bars and clubs that often stay open until dawn the next day, meaning that you can always find somewhere to get a drink or have a good time.
If you want somewhere to relax and enjoy the beautiful Spanish weather then head to the sandy Postiguet Beach, next to the harbour. Although often crowded, this is a pleasant beach with plenty of activities for visitors.
