Alicante is littered with exhilarating activities for visitors to enjoy, from hiking through the Sierra de Aitana Mountains' stunning natural landscape to playing a relaxing game of golf on one of the city’s fabulous courses. Thrill-seekers can also have a go at skydiving or a range of water sports along the city’s coastline including scuba diving, jet skiing, windsurfing and canoeing. Alternatively, visitors may wish to relax on one of Alicante’s pristine beaches, which are recognised as some of the best that Spain has to offer. The city is also home to a range of historic monuments and sight-seeing opportunities:

Castle of Santa Barbara

Standing on the top of Mount Benacantil, Alicante’s Castle of Santa Barbara overlooks the city, offering spectacular views of the surrounding area. The castle was erected in the 9th century and is one of Spain’s most impressive medieval fortresses.

San Nicolas Cathedral

The San Nicolas Cathedral was constructed during the 17th century and has a traditional renaissance and baroque architectural design. The cathedral is located within Alicante’s old town and is well known locally for its gorgeous surrounding gardens and tremendous blue dome.

Island of Tabarca

This beautiful island lies of the coast of Alicante and is accessible by boat from the mainland. Sometimes referred to as the Flat Island, Tabarca has an intriguing history. Once used by pirates as a safe haven from which to attack the mainland, the island has a unique atmosphere as well as a collection of interesting historic monuments.
