Stretching along the pristine sands of the Costa Blanca, Alicante trumps all when it comes to a luxury beach holiday in Spain. This sunny Mediterranean hotspot hosts a cluster of traditional whitewashed towns, luxury resorts and numerous fiestas, and its provincial capital remains vivacious and vibrant year-round.
A hot favourite among those looking for a luxury holiday, Alicante has some of the most deluxe resorts in Spain. Peppering a 200km-long coastline, they linger above secluded azure bays and slot between manicured golf courses and crystalline waterfalls. With a little something to treat everybody, Javea’s friendly vibe makes it a perfect spot for families, while upmarket Moraira hosts the stars, and Benidorm keeps the party going 24 hours a day.
Although many depart for the resort towns on arrival in Alicante, the city itself has plenty of allure. With a dazzling beachfront awash with breezy esplanades and terrace cafés, and an attractive old quarter overlooked by the castle, Alicante is perfect for a culture and beach combination holiday in one of Spain’s sunniest regions.
