Alicante is an enchanting Spanish city and a must see part of Valencia. It is set on the Costa Blanca, with clean white sandy beaches. Alicante airport is a major holiday destination for budget airlines and cheap holidays to Alicante invariably start with cheap flights to Alicante. Flight time from UK airports varies between two and three hours. On arrival, there are variety of choices to get to your final destination. The Alicante airport bus takes about 40 minutes to the city centre but you can also opt for cheap Alicante car hire.
You are spoilt for choice for beach based Alicante holidays. You can base yourself in a variety of accommodation around the Costa Blanca, with popular spots including San Juan Beach, with plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes. For sightseeing, it's best to base yourself in the harbour area, which is also in close proximity to the beach. In general, it is best to stick to hotels with at least three star ratings, as the ratings in Spain are lower than those in the UK.
The major attractions of holidays in Alicante are the white sandy beaches and great weather. One specialist area is the coves of Caba, good for diving and for naturists who don't want those swim suit tan lines. As with most resorts on the Costa Blanca, there's a buzzing nightlife in Alicante. Unusually, the area also benefits from a night train, the "Trensnochador". The service runs from 9pm to 7am, ideal for serious clubbers.
