Things to Do in and around Alicante - Your Guide

There’s no doubt that Alicante is a beautiful area that offers a lot to the people who want it. However, when you get there, you’re going to find that there’s a lot to do and so many different things to explore, and it can get a bit hectic.  Obviously if you want to make the most of your holiday in Alicante then having a car hire from Alicante airport with Drivalia means that you are not replying on public transport and can really make the most of your trip!

To try and make sure that this is not the case when it comes to your visit, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the different things that you can do while you’re in the area to get the most from your experiences.

Santa Barbara Castle

If you’re in the mood for exploring Santa Barbara Castle, you’ll find that it’s a beautiful way to spend your time and get used to the area. It’s been around since the tenth century and strikes an imposing figure, but the views are absolutely to die for, and you’ll love exploring the area. It’s a good choice for anyone who can appreciate history and provides you with an experience you won’t soon forget.  You can drive up to park but the parking is very small so best to get there easly.

Gravina Museum of Fine Arts

The next thing that you could do is to visit the Gravina Museum of Fine Arts. It’s a beautiful place that ensures to give you the best possible experiences and is a very traditional locale. While you will find that there are modern influences dotted around, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make sure that you are experiencing some of the more traditional interpretations on art, culture and musings of the time. If you’re a lover of art, it’s so worth checking out. 

Canelobre Caves

If you’re someone who’s looking for something a little more exciting and off-beat, you might look into Canelobre Caves. It is a wonderful place to explore, and you can get a guided tour of the mountain and the network of caves and tunnels within. It’s an incredible experience, and one that many people have chosen to do again and again. Being pretty inexpensive doesn’t hurt things either. This is around a 20 or 30 minute drive from Alicante so having a hire car in Alicante from Drivalia is a must!

Cocktails on Plaza Portal de Elche

When all is said and done, and you’ve had a wonderful time exploring and immersing yourself in the culture, you’re going to want to relax, unwind and have a good time. It’s easy to get lost in all of the different options and so when you’re finished, you should stop, get cocktails and enjoy yourself. It’s a lovely way to enjoy some of the views, have a drink and celebrate your first successful experience.

All in all, it’s easy to see why people come here and enjoy themselves. You’re forever getting immersed in an experience which is exceptionally fun to do and easy to enjoy, which is pretty much what you’re looking for. There’s so many sights and a lot of cultures to drink up, so you would be wise to try and find as much as you can to do. And if you see that you’re somehow running out of time to do everything in, you should book another experience!
