How to Spend 1 Day in Alicante

How to Spend 1 Day in Alicante

Alicante, the Spanish capital of the Costa Blanca Spain chams with historic streets and a happening nightlife scene. With just one day, you can walk the city on a tour and spend time on the water. Here are some tips for what to see and do during your 24 hours in Alicante. 

Morning: City Sightseeing

Make the most of your limited time in Alicante by starting with a guided city sightseeing. Whether you zip around on a Segway, peddle the city streets by bike, or hit the pavement on foot, you won’t want to miss attractions such as Santa Barbara Castle, the scenic Explanada de España, Casa Carbonell, and the striking St. Nicholas of Bari Cathedral. Choose a private tour to see everything on your list in less time. 

Afternoon: Set Sail

Take in the picturesque beauty of the Costa Blanca with an afternoon excursion out on the water. Spend a few hours sailing and snorkeling in the Mediterranean Sea with stops to relax on San Juan or Arenales beach, or catch a bird’s-eye view as you parasail high above the sea of Torrevieja. If you’d rather keep your feet on solid ground, opt for a walking tapas tour through the maze-like old town to learn about Alicante’s culinary heritage as you sample regional specialties, like salted fish, cured meats, and a local nougat pastry.

Night: Flamenco & Tapas

No trip to Spain is complete without a bit of flamenco, and you have options in Alicante. Polish off your day in this city by the sea with a live flamenco performance in a traditional tablao (flamenco tavern) in Alicante’s old town. This intimate setting is ideal for enjoying the Spanish guitar, singing, and dancing. Many performances include tapas, such as Manchego cheese, Iberian ham, and croquettes to munch on while you watch. If you have energy to spare, get a taste of Alicante’s buzzing nightlife with some bar hopping along Muelle del Puerto near the port.
