With easy access through Ryanair, Alicante makes a great weekend break with a chance to sit back and enjoy the Med as well as dine out at a number of good restaurants.
Highlights include the Port with its array of yachts and small boats alongside Postiguet Beach which is surprisingly nice for a city beach.
Other landmarks include Santa Barbara Castle, the Town Hall and San Nicolas Cathedral Church, all within close walking distance from each other.
The interesting Central Market – Mercado Central is also well worth a look around. Prices are very reasonable and the freshness of the products, second to none.
Finally sit back and enjoy a coffee on the Explanada de España which has an attractive tile mosaic surface.
