Alicante holidays take you to lively city on the Costa Blanca that has existed in some form for over three thousand years. Since the birth of cheap package holidays, it has been a firm favourite with the British. With fine sandy beaches washed by warm and crystal clear Mediterranean waters, it is easy to see why.

The Castle of St. Barbara stands watch over the town. A cable car ride will take you to the top to see the great views over the city and the sea. It looks particularly imposing when illuminated at night. Alicante has a huge amount to offer visitors and therefore attracts a wide age range.
Everyone, from families with young children to those with older teenagers, young and older couples, groups of young singles, can all enjoy a holiday here. A variety of water sports are available and the rocky waters around the nearby islands are ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving. But it isn't all about the beach. The inland villages and towns, the city of Valencia, not forgetting the golf courses, the stables for horse riding, the theme parks and the water parks, are all added attractions.
