Close to Alicante

With Alicante as your jumping off point, there are plenty of chances to journey out to the charming beach resorts in the surrounding areas. A tram or bus takes about 35 minutes to reach Villajoyosa, a historic town dotted with colourful villas. It's known for its chocolate making industry, so as well as relaxing by its calm waters, remember to keep an eye out for the local brand – Valor.

El Campello is also nearby – just a short tram ride away. The resort boasts a whopping 23km of pure, golden sand as well as the Paseo del Mar, a 2-mile long promenade – perfect for watching the dazzling sunsets. The shore has some rocky coves and is perfect for snorkelling or scuba diving to see marine life.

Further afield

Benidorm is a seaside resort – you might recall it from the popular TV show of the same name. It was originally a fishing village, so a visit here means you'll get the crème de la crème of freshly caught seafood. You can also climb the surrounding Canfali hills for panoramic views of the bay and the town.

You'll find L'Albir between Benidorm and Altea to the north of the Costa Blanca. With a beach lined with palm trees, clear blue waters and streets flanked by cafés and bars, it's worth a visit to revel in its laid-back vibes. Go for the markets during the summer, where you can buy traditional handicrafts, original jewellery and local art.

The area's wealth of beach resorts makes Alicante a fabulous place to lay your head, while visiting local coastal gems during the day. No matter where you end up, however, our Alicante Airport transfers will get your there – and back – with no fuss.
