How to Spend 2 Days in Alicante

How to Spend 2 Days in Alicante

Two days in Alicante gives you enough time to see the highlights of the Costa Blanca capital, as well as venture further afield to explore Guadalest, one of Spain’s most picturesque small towns. Here are some tips for how to plan the ultimate 48 hours in Alicante. 

Day 1: City Sightseeing

**Morning:**Get oriented with a sightseeing tour of Alicante’s most important landmarks, including the Explanada d’Espanya, hilltop Santa Barbara Castle, and the San Nicolas de Bari Cathedral. Opt for a private tour to maximize your time, or join a small group for a biking, Segway, or walking tour.

**Afternoon:**Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, treat yourself to a taste of Alicante in the afternoon. Savor local tapas on a guided walk through old town with a local foodie, or get a hands-on introduction to the culinary landscape at a paella cooking class.

**Night:**Finish off your first day on the Costa Blanca with a romantic and relaxing sunset cruise along the coast. Watch the sunset from the deck of a modern catamaran, glass of wine in hand. After, head to one of the bars along Explanada d’Espanya for a nightcap.

Day 2: Guadalest & Algar Springs

**Morning:**Get an early start for your day exploring the Costa Blanca outside Alicante. One of the most popular day trips takes travelers to the village of Guadalest, perched in the hills with a view down the valley and toward the sea. 

**Afternoon:**After visiting Guadalest, many day trip groups continue on to the Algar Waterfalls, a series of natural springs, pools, and falls where it’s possible to swim in the clear waters. Alternately, you could spend a day wine tasting in the wine regions of Alicante province. 

**Night:**Plan to end your time in Alicante by enjoying one of Spain’s most enduring icons, flamenco. Take your seat at a traditionaltablao (flamenco tavern) in old town for an evening of Spanish guitar, singing, and dancing in an intimate setting. Most performances include a tapas dinner with local wine.
