Alicante is one of the main European holiday hubs, renowned for its long sandy beaches, mild and pleasant climate, vibrant festivals and lively nightlife.

This thoroughly Spanish city has a truly Mediterranean air; its wide esplanades, such as the Rambla de Mendez Nuñez and the Avenida Alfonso el Sabio, and its seafront promenades, full of terrace cafés, are perfect for relaxation.

Alicante also has a distinctly African flavor, with women clad in caftans and hawkers selling African carvings along the waterfront and esplanades. The historical central quarter, though, is filled with baroque buildings, bearing testimony to the city’s past when it was a major seaport.
