Alicante is a city of many faces: it has its party-loving side with some of the best nightlife in Spain, but then there’s also the less well-known wild beauty of its waterfront and old quarter. Why not discover them both on one of our Alicante cruises? The city is located on the Costa Blanca, a sweeping stretch of coastline in the southeast of Spain. Alicante’s most notable attractions include the Santa Bárbara Castle, a Muslim Castle with roots reaching back to the 9th-century. You can take a tour to learn more about its rich history – and the views from the top of this hilltop fortress are incomparable. Soak up the energetic vibe of Alicante in the old town of Barrio de la Santa Cruz. Along these winding, cobbled streets, you’ll stumble upon atmospheric cocktail and tapas bars as well as some of the city’s most iconic buildings, including the Co-Cathedral of St Nicholas. Relax after a day of exploring on one of the city’s many beaches. We love the Playa del Postiguet, with its golden sands and shallow waters. It also has a buzzy promenade full of shops, cafes and bars – perfect for cooling down with a cocktail as the sun starts to set.
