Things to do in Alicante
Alicante has plenty to do for both city and beach lovers. That's the big advantage of the city! We have a few tips for you when going to Alicante.
Santa Cruz is an old district of Alicante. Here you can find beautiful old houses and narrow streets which you can just stroll through. Go there and enjoy a delicious Spanish lunch. Do not forget to buy some delightful Spanish wine!
MARQ Provincial Archaeological Museum
If you go to Alicante in the summer and just want to be cultural and learn something, visit the MARQ Provincial Archaeological Museum. The museum is beautiful inside and shows a variety of collections and exhibitions.
Santa Maria church
This church is in baroque style and definitely worth a visit. But the surrounding area also offers many beautiful things. For example, grab a coffee in one of the cute cafes. It is a relatively quiet area, so a nice escape from the city centre.
San Juan Beach
This beach is definitely a nice place to catch some rays. Although this is the city beach, you'll get the chance to leave the city behind you. Literally. Put your bikini or trunks on, drink in your hand and suncream at the ready.
Tabarca Island is an island you can do as a day trip from Alicante. You can dive, swim and enjoy good food. If you want to keep this feeling for longer, it is possible to spend the night in one of the hotels on the island.
