Alicante is a city located in the South East of Spain, on the Costa Blanca and it’s the capital of the province of Alicante. It is known as the City of the Eternal Spring, and this is because Alicante has more than 2850 hours of Sun during all the year. Moreover, it’s a representative city of Mediterranean soul thanks for its delicious gastronomy, especially the paella and ice creams, and its incomparable festive atmosphere during the summer.


This little Island, near Alicante, was a Pirate Island 300 years ago, since then Tabarca became a fishing village. Nowadays it’s famous for its marine reserve, it’s one of the most famous diving areas in the Mediterranean Sea for the great, beauty, and excellent state of preservation and has marine wonders hidden among its rich and biodiversity communities.


The coast of Alicante is called “Costa Blanca” (in English “White Coast”), because of the contrast between the blue of the sea and the white of the houses that are near the coast. This difference can be seen in Altea, it is considered as one of the most beautiful towns of Spain and a must if you are coming to Alicante.


The 3rd most populated city of the Valencian Community is located in the middle of the biggest palm tree grove of Europe. Divided by a river, Elche has a lot of amazing places to visit like El Palmeral, Altamira’s Castle and the Basilica of Santa Maria.
