Alicante

— 3 nights

City of Sun

As Valencia’s second largest city and one of the most well-known along the Costa Blanca, Alicante has an enchanting atmosphere that blends rich history with animated beach life.
Venture out of the city with trips to Valor Chocolate Museum (in Villajoyosa) and Benidorm (Centro Cultural Maritimo, Placa del Castell, &more). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Castillo de Santa Barbara, explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Alicante (MACA), take in nature's colorful creations at El Palmeral, and ponder the world of politics at Archives Municipales.

Province of Alicante travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Nightlife · Landmarks
One of the country’s most prosperous regions, Alicante Province is known for near-perfect climatic conditions, arguably the best in the country, and a series of sandy beaches and seaside resorts ideal for a relaxing holiday. Despite the prosperity driven by tourism, modernity runs right alongside tradition in this province, and visitors are often surprised to find hamlets completely unaffected by the 21st century hidden in the rugged mountains of the interior. A region of contrasts, the province is home to a diverse population, including a huge community of Nordic residents who have found homes away from home in the small settlements along the coast.
