As the gateway to the famous Costa Blanca, Alicante has long been a British favourite destination in Spain. It offers a wonderful mixture of stunning sandy beaches, history, first class shopping, fantastic golf courses and mind-blowing night life. To get a fantastic view of Alicante, climb or take the lift to the Santa Barbara Castle sitting on rock 166 metres above the city. In order to see the traditional side of Alicante, take a stroll through the historic buildings and whitewashed houses set on the narrow streets of the Alicante old town.
However, the major reason people fly to Alicante is to visit the 120 mile-long Mediterranean coastline of Costa Blanca. The obvious destination on Costa Blanca is Benidorm. Famous for its unbeatable nightlife, Benidorm has something for everyone. Whether you want to relax on the fantastic beaches of Levante and Pontiente, visit the old town or have a fun-packed day out at giant amusement park of Terra Mítica, Benidorm has it all.
For a quieter, relaxing break away from the crowds, why not visit Tamariú, one of the Costa Brava’s smallest, least developed and most appealing resorts. Imagine wandering around narrow streets and whitewashed houses, having excellent seafood paella with glass of wine in one of the traditional restaurants and watching the sun go down over a secluded sand bay. Welcome to Tamariú!
