Alicante is a port city on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, and it's best known for being the arrival point for holidays on the Costa Blanca. But an Alicante Flight needn't be followed by a lengthy transfer if you consider the beaches, nightlife and sights of Alicante instead!

Alternative destinations after a cheap flight to Alicante include Benidorm for the biggest nightlife on the Costa Blanca, but without much in the way of Spanish culture, and Calpe where you can enjoy a sophisticated break in the sunshine. Get away from the larger towns with a holiday in Villajoyosa, between Alicante and Benidorm, or for a beach break without the hustle and bustle you could try Guardamar del Sugura, just south of Alicante.

Flights to Alicante

It takes between two and a half and three hours for a flight to Alicante from the UK to arrive into Alicante Airport. There are daily departures from numerous airports across the UK, some with several flights to Alicante every day, so it definitely pays to shop around and check both different dates and departure airports if you've got a choice in your area. You will find that evening flights are usually cheapest, but if you want to maximise your holiday it can also be worth paying a little extra to get an early morning flight.

Direct flights to Alicante

With such a short flight time from the UK, direct routes to Alicante are abundant, and you can fly there from a range of UK airports. They include most London airports, southern airports like Bristol and Scottish airports Edinburgh and Glasgow. You can also fly out from Belfast in just under three hours.

easyJet offer direct flights into Alicante from 10 UK airports., Ryanair and Monarch Airlines also offer flights to the lively port city. Other companies like Thomas Cook Airlines operate direct flights into Alicante from London in the summer, but from northern and Scottish airports throughout the year. Since there's so much competition between airlines, it's not hard to bag yourself a cheap flight.

Flying direct to Alicante is a no brainer, and means that you could potentially find yourself on one of the Costa Blanca's beautiful beaches within four hours of taking off from the UK!

What to do in Alicante

Like the rest of Spain, Alicante offers a little something for everyone - tasty food, stunning beaches and sunshine galore. To soak up some Spanish sun, head to Playa del Postiguet, conveniently located right next to the Old Town. For beaches that are a little less easy to visit, hop on a boat and head across to Tabarca, a pretty little island town of whitewashed houses, beaches and coastal walks. Back on the mainland, there's no missing Santa Barbara Castle, which dates back to the 9th century AD. Visit for exquisite views across the water, and a little taste of local history. For even more old things, head to the local archaeological museum with centuries-old artefacts.

Food and drink buffs are well-catered for here. Not only will there be plenty of opportunities for sampling the local specialties, but various companies offer a range of gourmet walking tours to give you a taste of the region. Work off all that food with a meander through the lanes of the Old Town, where you might bump into the city's town hall, cathedral, a convent and a sprinkling of museums.

Travel to Alicante

There are more than 30 airports across the UK that offer flights to Alicante so it's easy to get off on your holiday from a nearby airport. The array of flights means that you can get some great deals on the route, particularly if you are flexible on travelling dates.
Alicante Airport website.

On arrival in Alicante

There is a bus to Alicante which runs every 30 minutes and takes about 30 minutes to reach the town centre. If there is a large group of you or you have a lot of luggage then taxis are also available and are fairly reasonably priced. Car hire is also available from the airport, great if you're planning on seeing more of the area.

Getting Around Alicante

When you're searching for your cheap flights to Alicante it's definitely worth thinking about booking your accommodation at the same time, as there are plenty of package holiday deals that can save you money, especially in peak times.

If you're looking to head further afield then you will find that your main options are to hire a car, or get on the buses or trams, which serve many of the resorts along the Costa Brava. A day trip to Calpe is popular, but you could also hop on a boat from Alicante and take a ride over to Tabarca Island. Here you will find a lovely marine reserve, great for snorkelling and scuba, as well as lovely beaches, pretty walks and some old buildings which dot the landscape.

Probably the most popular attraction in Alicante is the beaches, with Postiguet being the most central beach. It's pretty but it can also be very busy, so make sure you head out to San Juan at least once - it's reputedly the best beach in Spain which is definitely a competitive category! You can also try Playa del Salvador which is a little out of the way too.

Travelling further afield

Alicante has excellent transport links to other destinations in Spain. A tram runs to Benidorm where you can get easy connections to other Costa Blanca resorts and beyond. The high-speed rail network means that Madrid and Barcelona are also within easy and fast reach, and the intercity coach network offers travel to most of the major towns across the country. The Balearic Islands and Algeria can be reached by ferries that run regularly from the harbour, making Alicante a great destination if you're interested in travelling around.

Alicante Weather

Alicante has a very mild climate with highs in the summer of just over 30°C and lows in the winter of around 15°C, although it can get a little chilly at night so don't forget a warm top! The rain falls predominantly in September and October, with dry weather for the rest of the year broken only by an occasional shower. With more than 10 hours of sunshine a day all summer long it's easy to see why Alicante is a popular holiday destination.

Alicante's Tourist Season

Summer is the prime tourist season in Alicante, when droves of unsuspecting British holidaymakers won't find any cafes or restaurants open during the afternoon siesta between 2pm and 4pm! The accommodation and flight prices are highest between June and August, but the weather in April and May is also great for visiting, although you might not get such a tan. In fact, unless you go during the rainy season in September and October, Alicante has plenty of good weather and lots to keep you busy so why not try to beat the crowds and get a bargain?
