OUT AND ABOUT ALICANTE
Alicante is centrally located on Spain’s Mediterranean coast. His privileged location offers to the city an excellent mild climate, with an average year round temperature of 18-20° C.
The air of the city is pervaded with the scents of the sea; indeed, the city has been an important seaport for many centuries.
The city looks towards the sea, and does so from its famous Paseo de la Explanada, one of the most beautiful seafront promenades in Spain.
Alicante is also a university city, with various faculties and a series of technical colleges. In summer a variety of Spanish courses for foreigners are held.
The city offers an interesting range of cultural activities in various centres around town, such as the Casa de la Cultura (cultural centre), which has a well-stocked library, a historical archive and keeps locals and visitors abreast of cultural events such as expositions, conferences and films.
The Teatro Principal (Principal Theatre) is a neo-classical building dating from the 19th century, which runs an extensive programme of shows and plays throughout the year.
The exhibition centre Lonja del Pescado, located on the site of the former fish market, stages important art exhibitions and other cultural events throughout the year. During the month of September the National Theatre meeting "Alicante a Escena" is held, along with the International Contemporary Music Festival. In December there is an International Puppet Festival.
For lovers of abstract and modern art, a visit to the Eusebio Sempere exhibition in the Casa de la Asegurada is a must, where you’ll find an art collection donated to the city by this local sculptor and painter.
Music lovers can attend a daily concert on the esplanade (Paseo de la Explanada) in the afternoons. In summertime, the concerts are given on Sunday mornings.
Try any of the delicious varieties of rice dishes, combined with shellfish, fish or meat that are renowned in the region of Alicante.
To complete your meal, Alicante has some excellent local wine denominations, and for dessert, don’t forget the famous ice creams, Turrón and dates.
The mild Alicante climate makes beach-life accessible practically all year round, and there are plenty of fantastic beaches to choose from: La Playa de San Juan, with seven kilometres of golden sand flanked by a road enabling you to stop wherever you want; La Albufereta, an intimate, residential stretch of sand, protected by the headland of the Serra Grossa, El Postiguet located almost within the city itself, at the foot of the Benacantil mountain, next to the port and Los Saladares, Iying south of the city, in the area known as Agua Amarga.
The sands simply never run out in Alicante; but if you prefer a rocky beach with crystal clear waters, at the Cabo de las Huertas, you’ll find a rugged, rocky area with coves such as Los Cantarales, Los Judios and Palmera. El Saladar and Los Judios both have nudist sections.
There are boat trips available to the Island of Tabarca, Jijona is only 26 km from Alicante, the birthplace of Turrón, a sticky almond sweet very popular in Spain and served at Christmas.
Close at hand are the Caves of Canelobre, a marvel of nature and just outside Alicante you can see the largest Palm Forest in Europe; on a trip to Elche you can enjoy a stroll through the subtropical environment.
Orihuela with its wide variety of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings is just 54 km from Alicante.
The mountainous town of Ibi, 40 km to the north of Alicante, is a great place to take the children, as it has a toy museum and is at the centre of the toy industry in Spain. It is affectionately known as the headquarters of the Reyes Magos (Three Kings of Orient), who bring gifts at to Spanish children at Christmas time.
The village of Agost is also closeby; famous for its pottery, the village makes more earthenware Botijos (clay pot) than any other place in Spain. The authentic souvenir is the Botijo de Novia

El Palmeral, located on the seafront along the Murcia road, Lo Morant, which incorporates an auditorium where you can enjoy concerts and El Benacantil, with its extensive pine groves, which is located on the slopes of the Santa Bárbara castle.

There are many places to have a drink or a bite to eat around town. The old city centre, known as El Barrio, offers some of the finest restaurants and tapas bars, offering both authentic Valencian and International cuisine.
