It still has numerous fishermen's houses and a wide variety of holiday rentals. For the perfect blend between tradition and modernity, Alicante’s old quarter still retains the essence of the past. Beautiful streets, flanked by white houses whose facades are full of flower pots, tile mosaics and wrought iron bars. Families choose the residential and modern area of Pau 1 that was a candidate for the prize of the best residential borough in Europe in 2008. And for an area by the beach, Diputación-Ensanche is the modern borough with the popular beach of Postiguet.Fantastic rentals with the best amenities

If you crave a bit of privacy, in the outskirts, you can find secluded properties with private gardens and swimming pools where the children will play freely and you can have BBQs or dinings al fresco away from prying eyes.

Holidays in Alicante
The area and getting around
Alicante is a destination for those looking for a bit of relaxation during the holidays. This port city on Spain’s southeastern Costa Blanca features some traditions together with modernity. Santa Cruz is the borough that keeps an essence of previous times with its narrow streets and the coloured houses, although it also offers a vibrant and lively nightlife scene. Alicante is focused on summer tourism and offers more than 9 miles of coastline spread among six beautiful beaches including the popular Poniente Beach or Levante Beach in Benidorm. For sweeping views of the Mediterranean, climb the steep way up to the top of the hill where Santa Bárbara castle is.Fantastic monuments and visits
In addition to its magnificent beaches, it has many other attractions. The city has an impressive monumental wealth, concentrated mainly in the area of the old quarter. For this reason, when you walk through its streets it is easy to feel like going back in time. Traces that go from the Bronze Age to the present day and that tell us about the events that have taken place in the city over the centuries. However, the city is much more than its old town and in its different boroughs and it offers endless attractions so that each traveller can have a bit of what they wish for their dream holiday in Alicante.
Travellers and activities
Alicante boasts beautiful beaches with all kinds of equipment to enjoy a wonderful day at the beach. The Saladar, the Postiguet, the Albufereta, Almadraba, San Juan and Cabo de las Huertas tend to be the most frequented during the summer months, especially the Albufereta, since it is very sheltered from tides, ensuring a safe swimming for children and adults alike. But it also has a children's play area and offers the possibility of practicing kayaking, snorkelling, sailing and other water sports of your choice. If you are looking for a quiet beach, we recommend those of Cabo de Huertas, more discreet because of the difficulty to access it.Alicante for family holidays
Besides the fantastic beaches, ideal for families with children, Alicante has many other proposals for the enjoyment of the little ones. For example, El Mundo de los Niños, a park located near the Esplanade of Spain where your children can blow their imagination and let their energies run free, enjoying all the attractions. But you can also have a great time running through the gardens of the Castle of Santa Barbara while imagining what life was like in these ancient fortresses or attending some of the theatre performances of historical scenes that take place there. In addition, you will also have the option to take an excursion to Benidorm and spend the day in Terra Mítica, one of the most popular theme parks in Spain.

Top 5 travel tips in Alicante
Alicante has many landmarks you can spend the day visiting but its location within the Costa Blanca makes it the ideal base to go on a day tour to neighbouring towns and villages. We recommend you not to miss Orihuela, Villena, Petrer, Altea, Dénia, Jávea or Calpe.2. Enjoy the wildlife of the nature parks
Large and biologically rich areas with parks, water parks and wildlife parks where to enjoy and discover animals from Africa, Asia or America. Take a safari tour in Safari Aitana or Terra Natura Park. Near the sea, you have Canalejas Park with lots of sculptures of animals and a carved out map of Spain. In the outskirts, El Palmeral is well known for its beautiful waterfalls, lakes and palm trees. Enjoy a day out surrounded by lush green vegetation and fresh air.3. Visit Elche and its dame
One of the well known coastal resorts in Alicante is Elche, a world heritage site with palm groves that fill the landscape since the 10th century! The Palmeral of Elche contains more than 11,000 palm trees and date palms that give the area its traditional aspect. Visit the Basilica of Santa Maria and enjoy the performance of the “mystery” of Elche in that same church. This is the only catholic church allowed to stage this play. Furthermore, do not miss the chance to visit the statue of the Lady of Elche, a replica at the Museo Arqueológico y de Historia de Elche.4. Let your hair down in Alicante
Most of the nightlife in Alicante happens around the city centre but in summer it is also usual for the locals to go out and enjoy vibrant nights at the beach of San Juan. But the Old Town also offers a variety of places to dance and have a drink. In any case, you should know that the musical genres are very varied, so you will always find somewhere you feel comfortable. Feel the rhythm and dance the night away!5. Visit Tabarca Island
Tabarca is an islet in the Mediterranian Sea, close to Santa Pola, peppered with coves and bathed by breathtaking emerald-green waters. Also known as Isla Plana or “Flat Island”, as it is flat and long, this islet comes to live around high season. Succulent cuisine, spectacular views and the charm of ancient villages. Beach bars and restaurants at your service and fantastic spots to lay down and enjoy your day. It is also the best place in the area to dive, as it is a Marine Reserve. The fact that fishing is prohibited, makes the fish do not fear the human presence and get closer. A fantastic experience for divers and sea lovers. Spend the day soaking up the sea, basking in the sun, exploring the rocky shore and wallow in clear and bountiful waters.
