Alicante is one of the best known cities across the White Coast of Spain. With its pine tree boulevards, vast beaches, shopping streets and good climate it is a popular destination for tourism in the summer. Pick up a car from Alicante airport and take a drive along the harbour for a beautiful view of both the cities coastline and port.

The city and harbour are situated by the Benacantil Mountain at the foot of the Santa Barbara fortress.
Crammed full of culture and history, there are plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Some of the great sites to visit are the gothic church of Santa Maria or the Casa de la Asegurad Museum filled with contemporary art from the likes of Picasso, Miro and Chillida to name a few.
The beach is a highly popular destination in Alicante with the Explanada de Espana promenade, located across from the port and paved with lively terraces and cafes adding a Cosmopolitan feel to the city.
On hot summer evenings enjoy the open air concerts in the green parks and public squares and try out the local cuisine where rice dishes take centre stage, being cooked in a million different ways.
Take your car and drive 23km away from Alicante to discover the Canelobre Caves, which are renowned for their intricate interiors making you feel as if you are standing within an elaborate cathedral. If you prefer a bit of adventure, take a boat out to the island of Tabarca surrounded by crystalline waters and volcanic rock to enjoy a totally unspoilt view of sun and sea.
Alicante is the city to relax and to enjoy, so imagine if you will, sun on your skin with the roof of your car down whilst driving through boulevards for a perfect summer.
