Destination Management Alicante
If variety is the spice of life, Alicante takes the cake, however you look at it. This city with a population of over 300.000 combines both classic and modern, it offers business and pleasure and manages to fit mountains and beaches within its city limits. It even has an island off the coast – the only inhabited island in the Land of Valencia.
Today it is a first-rate tourist area thanks to its splendid beaches and its excellent climate, offering charm, tradition, monuments and tourist attractions, and an exciting festivities and cultural calendar throughout the entire year.
The El Postiguet beach is located close to the city centre, with an attractive promenade flanked by palm trees. Of note here is that since 1999 a tramway connects Postiguet Beach with Albufereta Beach, up to the ruins of the Roman site of Lucentum, making a very scenic trip along the seafront. After traversing the city and port facilities and heading south, we come to the last of the beaches within the city limits called Saladar, broad, sandy and open, with a pedestrian walkway and offering splendid panoramic views of the bay of Alicante.
Alicante enjoys perfect weather all year, with an annual average of 18º C and 2800 days of sunshine
The eating scene is exciting and the nightlife is absolutely legendary.
