Top Alicante Excursions

There's so much to take in around Alicante's centre, stunning beaches and local countryside that sometimes it's nice to have a little help. This is where tours and excursions come in handy. At Holiday Extras, our job is to make your airport transfers run as smoothly as possible. Safe in that knowledge, you have much more time to plan your itinerary. You might be looking to sail the calm waters, sample the best food the area has to offer or get your heart rate up with a faster-paced activity. We're happy to help you make the decision with our top Alicante excursions.

On the ocean

Since Alicante is right by the water, it's natural that you'll be tempted by some marine-inspired days out. Local companies make it easy for your sailing dreams to come true. There's Alicante Catamarán Aventurero who have sleek catamarans to take you out to nearby Tabarca Island, on sunset trips or DJ-fuelled party boats. Another provides a three-cape cruise with bathing and lunch on the rugged Dénia coast. Plenty others deal in walking shore excursions, and snorkelling or diving in shimmering waters with equipment provided.

All you can eat

The best way to get to know a regions' food is to have a local show you around. Alicante is renowned for its cuisine, so food-based excursions are easy to find. You can go on an evening tapas tour through the city, a five-hour artisan sweet excursion in towns neighbouring Alicante (including a visit to a chocolate factory) or even a full-day culinary day out that lets you cook alongside a local chef. Don't forget to check out tours of the province's vineyards, as well.

Get active

It's easy to find an Alicante excursion that helps you see the sights and keep active at the same time. There's a private bike tour through the pine forests and mountains of the Costa Blanca or – to stay closer to home – a Segway tour of the city. For true thrill-seekers, look out for a day sailing on the Mediterranean before parasailing above the sea of Torrevieja – returning to earth for a chilled drink, of course.

No matter what you decide to do, whether you're planning to be away from the city for most of your holiday or keeping everything local, you can rely on our Alicante airport transfers to take you to the place you want to be.
