Beaches - the Summer Paradise of the Mediterranean by
Hotels / Self-Catering Accommodation in Alicante
With many kilometers of fascinating
beaches and blue sky all year round, Alicante is the perfect place for
getting in touch with the Mediterranean. Each year, several hundreds thousands
tourists visit our city of light, attracted by its true Spanish flavour
and numerous vacation opportunities. Its beaches are simply stunning. Whether
you prefer sand or rocks, Alicante does have interesting places to offer.
|Staying in one of the hotels
in the city center, you are on a walking distance both from the Old Town
and the beach. Just pick up your towel and quickly walk downstairs - the
central Postiguet Alicante beach is in front of your doorstep. One minute
of walk from the City Hall and just few meters from Hotel Meliá,
it is found at the base of Benacantil hill guarded by the impressive Castle
of Saint Barbara. Here you can enjoy the sun, taking a coffee or an ice-cream
in a relaxed atmosphere. There are also a lot of playgrounds for children,
terrains for beach-volleyball and even open-air fitness facilities for
seniors. From time to time, there are open-air happenings, such as music
concerts. The most impressive one, of course, is four-nights long fireworks
competition. It takes place at the end of Hogueras de San Juan - a colorful
Another beach is one of the
finest and most beautiful beaches of Costa Blanca and the whole Spain.
Its name is la Playa de San Juan. Year after year, it is awarded the Blue
Flag, confirming its high status. It is more than 7 kilometers long and
80 meters wide, attracting a lot of sun seekers.
Barbara Castle Seen from the Harbour, Alicante
You should definitely take
a walk along this summer paradise. While the waves are gently touching
your feet, you can feel its immense dimensions. Arriving to San Juan beach
is easy. Just take a bus (numbers 21 and 22) or a tram that goes from the
Postiguet beach to Campello.
On the way towards the long
beach of San Juan, you can find a small beach of Albufereta. It is a bit
hidden and surrounded by residential areas. For that reason, this Alicante
beach is usually more quiet. Nevertheless, during the summer season it
offers all necessary services. Previously, Albufereta served as the harbor
of the Roman place Lucentum. In the western end of the beach you can see
the remains of the old docks. Behind the beach, at the top of the hill,
you can discover the ruins of the ancient town.
In the south part of Alicante
coast, several kilometers away from the city and close to the Alicante
airport, you can find an extraordinary sand beach of Urbanova. This one
is my favorite! It is perhaps even longer than the beach of San Juan. From
this beach you can enjoy impressive views towards Alicante harbor and the
castle of Santa Barbara. Situated between two residential areas (the suburbs
of Urbanova and Arenales del Sol), this beach does not attract large crowds.
You can really relax there, far away from the noisy city center. A large
part of the beach between the suburbs is a nudist one, offering you a lot
of free space and the true hot atmosphere of Costa Blanca.
Finally, if you are looking
for something really unique, the rocky beach of Cabo de las Huertas is
your choice. Situated between Albufereta and San Juan, it forms a part
of very peaceful residential area with beautiful holiday villas and the
lighthouse. Here you can feel the wildness of untouched nature. But be
careful when walking or jumping into the water! There are a lot of rocks!
No sand here! What could you do on this fascinating rocky beach? Here you
have almost the absolute freedom. Large part of this beach is a nudist
one. You can swim, take a walk, enjoy the sun and find a quiet isolated
place just for you and your partner. Or, perhaps, you simply want to explore
the nature or ride a mountain-bike.
