Top 5 Alicante destinations for couples

A romantic break to Alicante is a holiday that writes itself: long stretches of golden beaches, sun-kissed evenings and strolls along the promenade. There's a lot to do here and we've got our top 5 Alicante destinations for couples ready to make your itinerary easier to plan. Our airport transfers cater to groups of any size, from private cars for intimate pairings to shared shuttle buses if you're looking to mingle.

A secluded beach

Alicante's beaches evoke romance, and there are plenty to choose from depending on your tastes. Playa de la Almadraba is a more secluded option: it's small, uncrowded and when dusk falls there are perfect views of the stunning sunset. The Cabo de las Huerta coves are similarly peaceful. You can explore the caves and this area is also a popular nudist beach.

A magnificent view

While Alicante is a bustling city, there are a handful of places around where you can feel like the only people in the world. Take a late-evening walk up Santa Bárbara Castle to see perfect views of the bay, or go on a boat trip to Tabarca Island where you can spend some alone time overnight on a remote slice of the Mediterranean.

A vineyard tour

Outside of Alicante, there are vineyards galore to discover. Tours take place regularly, including group options where tasting is encouraged. For something a bit more VIP, there are 5-hour private tours to the wineries, olive groves and bottling rooms of Villena or private shore excursions where you can also visit the 12th-century Atalaya Castle.

A gourmet experience

Romance and food are intertwined, so bear this in mind in Alicante. Tours of the city's rich culinary heritage can be done by foot or, for a bit of a laugh, on a Segway. You can also splash out on some high-quality dining: La Taberna del Gourmet has a huge choice of tapas served to perfection, while Nou Manolín is a rustic city institution.

An intimate place to sleep

To really take things up a notch, romance-wise, consider camping. There are lots of sites around, including eco-friendly Marjal Costa Blanca, Camping El Jardín in nearby El Campello or Camper Area Alicante if you have a mobile home. A warm night under the stars – what's more romantic than that?

A romantic trip away shouldn't be interrupted by travel worries, so we at Holiday Extras provide Alicante Airport transfers for everyone. Shared shuttle buses or private cars – just find us at the airport for a stress-free ride.
