Alicante is a big bustling city on the southern
coast of Spain, and the capital of the province of the same name. It
has been popular for decades with the Europeans from the colder
northern climes due to the excellent climate and the international
airport, just south of the metropolis.
Over the last 20 years huge estates, and some small
ones, of holiday homes have been built in the southern area of the
province, attracting even more holiday makers and retired people
wanting to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and sunshine.
In the city you will find all types of shops from
bargain basement to the famous designer boutiques, scattered along the
very busy roads, something for everyone.
The beaches of Alicante can and do get packed at
weekends and in the high season, so if you want a bit of peace and
quiet then head south along the coast where you're sure to find
somewhere more tranquil. There is an enourmous selection of Alicante
Hotels to choose from in the city and all along the coast.
