The Beaches of Alicante

From the port in direction northeast we first reach the beach Playa de Postiguet, Foto a beautiful beach with golden sand which is surrounded by palm trees and has a beach promenade with restaurants, bars and cafeterias. After the Playa de San Juan, this is the widest beach of Alicante.

Heading towards El Campello, we reach first a coastline with cliffs and coves, and then La Albufereta, Foto a very beautiful white sand beach with palm trees.

Following this there is the Marina "Club Nautico de Costa Blanca "and the popular sandy beach of Playa de La Almadraba, Foto which is easily accessible by car and has a large parking lot.

Towards north we now reach the section "Cabo de las Huertas" with numerous bays, and then the largest and most famous beaches in Alicante:

The wide Playa de San Juan Foto offers fine sand and crystal clear water Foto, next to it there is the Playa de Muchavista of El Campello. Both offer numerous tourist facilities, in summer these beaches are often a bit crowded.

Continuing from El Campello in north-eastern direction we find the beaches of Cala Finestrat, Benidorm, Albir, Altea and Calpe.

On the other side, from port in south-eastern direction, there is first the mostly deserted rocky pebble beach Agua Amarga.

Next is Los Saladares, a beautiful and mostly quiet sand beach.

Facing Santa Pola there is the island Tabarca, with a picturesque fishing village and almost paradisiacal beaches. Because of its rich underwater world, the island is especially popular with divers. You can reach the island by boat from Alicante, Santa Pola, Guardamar, Torrevieja and Benidorm.

More well- known beaches in the south of Alicante are Santa Pola, Guardamar del Segura, Torrevieja and Pilar de Horadada.
