Boasting some of the finest beaches in all of Spain, Alicante is the largest city on the Costa Blanca. Being that this is one of the more boisterous and festive destinations, it’s no surprise that directly behind the beach you’ll find numerous hotels, nightlife venues, and even an 18-hole golf course. Beyond the tourist surface, this picturesque Spanish town enjoys a rich heritage with thousands of years of maritime history. To see how Alicante achieves the perfect balance of antiquity and modernity on Alicante cruises all you have to do is relax on the pristine sand of La Playa de San Juan, shop the Explanada de España, and conquer the Castillo de Santa Barbara.Venture through Alicante’s old town and take a trip back in time as you wander through its narrow streets passing by cathedrals and the town hall. For a jaw-dropping view of the harbor and the distant mountains, climb up to the top of Mount Benacantil to the Castillo de Santa Barbara. This structure was originally built by the Carthaginians in 400 B.C. and later claimed by both Romans and Arabs who built upon it further. When the sun falls on Alicante, the city ramps up for a long evening of eating, drinking, laughing, and dancing that truly confirms its reputation as a lively Spanish town.
