Visiting the Spanish City of Alicante is a Must

If you visit the Spanish city of Alicante, you will find out that it is a good change from the typical tourist buzz from the beach resorts around it. You would say that Alicante is the “real Spain” contrasting with the artificial resorts created to cater international tourism.

Located on the Costa Blanca, Alicante has its own beaches, but they are not as famous for them as are the nearby resorts of Benidorm, Santa Pola or Calpe.

Why not rent a Segway?

If you want to take a tour of Alicante, a fun way to do so is by renting a Segway. It has become very popular nowadays, and it’s safe and environmentally friendly. A Segway is a little electric scooter with two wheels on which you stand up and ride along the sidewalk or pavement. Usually the guide will teach the group how to ride it and everyone goes in a convoy around the city. Believe me, it is a lot of fun!

Visiting the Castle

The Castle of Alicante is a Moorish fortress from the 10th century, located on top of a mountain and looking over the city. If you like hiking, you can climb all the way up by foot; otherwise there is an elevator from the beach that will get you very close to the Castle. The view from the top of the Castle is breathtaking, overlooking the city of Alicante and the blue Mediterranean Sea. You can sit and rest in a little café, eat some tapas and drink a beer or get some other refreshment after the hike or buy small souvenirs from the Castle.

Go Shopping in the Corte Ingles of Alicante

The Department Store of El Corte Ingles is very popular in Spain and can be found in almost every city. It has many floors, where you can find everything you want at a reasonable price.

Delightful Seafood at La Marina

La Marina is an exclusive private harbor area with many yachts and expensive sailing boats - a real playground for the rich. Eating lunch at one of the restaurants in la Marina is a must, as the seafood is fresh, the breeze is pleasant and the prices are not outrageous.

A visit to el Mercadillo

Just behind the Marina, if you walk a little bit after your lunch, you will see the mercadillo or local market. It is worth strolling down the promenade and checking out the many vendors and open air shops that sell everything from leather bags to dream catchers and jewelry.
