Postiguet Beach is a haven for both locals and visitors alike, with golden sands and beautiful waves that stretch out to the horizon. It’s not too far from civilisation either, so people who don’t want to go all that far have a place to relax. If you find that the weather becomes a bit much and you need a break, you can easily get access to a wide selection of different restaurants and facilities just off the beach and enjoy some lunch or a cool refreshing drink whilst you watch the world go by.

It’s easy to get caught up in a good afternoon of golf, and golf on the Costa Blanca is an activity which is highly recommended for both experts and those who simply want to give it a go.

Santa Barbara Castle

The Castle of Santa Barbara is something which stands tall and strong over Alicante, and has been doing so for many years. If you are staying in the area then this is certainly something that has to go on your list of things to do in Alicante. From the battlements you can see nearly all of the surrounding area, making it a great spot for photos and to visit when in Alicante. There is parking but get there early as ancient castles were not designed with cars in mind so the space is small.

Be prepared for a bit of an uphill walk to the top from the car park but when you get there it is well worth the effort because the views are absolutely spectacular.
