The Valencian Community is full of exceptional corners that must be visited at least once in a lifetime. If you are planning a trip to Alicante, one of the most beautiful cities on the Mediterranean coast, don’t miss out on any of these below:
• Leisure and culture: this port city has an excellent cultural offer for the whole family. As well as visiting such emblematic spots as the old fortress of Santa Bárbara Castle or the Canelobre Caves, you can’t miss such beautiful villages as Villajoyosa, one of the most colourful towns on the coast, or El Castell de Guadalest, a historical and artistic site declared a Site of Cultural Interest.
• Beaches: Alicante’s beaches are one of the province’s main attractions, as millions of visitors come to enjoy unique routes through some of the Costa Blanca’s most iconic towns. Get lost in Jávea, where you will find one of the most beloved beaches in Alicante, or go to the Almedraba beach, a small paradise ideal for relaxation.
• Gastronomy: if you are in Alicante, you cannot ignore the fabulous local gastronomy. Take advantage of a break near the sea to enjoy a good plate of arroz a banda with fresh products, an olleta from Alicante or a salad or toast with pericana, one of the star recipes.
