Alicante offers a charming blend of traditional architecture and cuisine, international galleries and museums, and fabulous beaches. The harbor city is located on the Costa Blanca, a 125-mile (200-kilometer) stretch of white-sand beaches that wrap around the Spanish Mediterranean. While many come to the Costa Blanca region to be pampered in its resorts, Alicante offers a more authentic Spanish experience.
Begin your Alicante visit with a bird’s-eye perspective of the area. Perched high above the city on Mount Benacantil is the Castle of Santa Bárbara. Walk, drive or take the elevator to the ramparts for commanding views of the town and harbor.
Below the fortress, explore the streets of Old Town, an area filled with art museums and historic buildings. The San Nicholas Cathedral is considered one of the finest examples of Spanish baroque architecture, while the Basilica of Santa Maria is the oldest active church remaining in the city. Visit Alicante’s civic heart at the Alicante Town Hall and admire lavish interiors that were once common in the region.
You don’t need to travel far to enjoy Alicante’s beaches. Follow the mosaic tiles of Explanada de España to reach Postiguet Beach, located at the base of Mount Benacantil. Or take the tram to Playa de San Juan’s sweeping bay for a day of sailing, volleyball and windsurfing.
Sample fresh produce and mingle with locals at Central Market. Head to Alicante Harbour, where the restaurants are renowned for seafood dishes, including paella and arroz negro, a rice dish blackened with squid ink.
Alicante is compact, with most attractions within walking distance from the historic city center. A growing network of trams and buses will take visitors farther afield. Even in the depths of winter the Mediterranean climate provides mild temperatures. Rain is particularly rare.
The harbor is a popular gateway to the city, with many visitors arriving by ferry and cruise ship. An international airport is located 20 minutes by bus from the city center. High-speed trains run frequently from Barcelona and Madrid.

Liked the location and mix of Spanish and guests, probably less from other countries
Was really good for a short weekend away with the lads, more family oriented but when ya have a few beers down you, you don’t mind and the beers cheep
Was very clean and tidy only thing that let this place down was the entertainment really.... and the weather but its not the hotels fault although the life guard did tell us to get out the pool in the middle of a thunderstorm which made no sence as was wet anyway lol.
Nice hotel rooms clean but could do with updating. Food good and prices not expensive at bar. If you’ve got younger children they will love the mini pool area & entertainment like my 5 year old did, if you also have 2 grumpy teenagers it was boring apparently lol
Love this Hotel, had two trips to Benidorm already this year in the same Hotel our 11th visit to Sol Pelicanos Ocas. Staff always very attentive, pool is amazing just a shame about the smokers who will drop their "butts and ash" where it drops and not in the ash trays as provided. Pool always very ...
This was the perfect base for our long weekend trip. The room was small but clean and just right for sharing with a friend. Close to the beach and old town - ideal location
