Organized by AEGEE-Alicante

Alicante's land: beach, fire and SUn! Profile Picture
Let’s do something… Imagine a place where the sun shines almost all day, where you can refresh your body in the sea, swim in crystalline water of Algar fountains, taste the delicious paella while drinking sangría or chill out on Tabarca, the most beautiful Island in the middle of the sea.
Oh wait... Is this not enough for you because is too relaxed? What if we also go rafting down the Segura river? What about swimming in a marine reserve and get in touch with its nature? Dancing salsa and bachata sounds good to you too? And going down on the highest waterslide in Europe?
But there’s even more! In our Summer University you will reach a civic state of mind by actively being part of workshops and you will have the opportunity to develop yourself in a really Mediterranean way.
So if you want to live not only a shiny-relaxed but also an exciting and waking-up adventure, you have found the right place!!

Located in the middle of the Costa Blanca, the city of Alicante, the capital of the namesake province, is one of the major tourist destinies in Spain. Alicante is known as the City of the Eternal Spring for its warm temperatures and the sun shining almost 300 days per year. This beautiful city is a truly mediterranean representative, not only for being bathed by the Mediterranean sea but also for its people, festive atmosphere and delicious gastronomy. The turrones, ice creams, paella and tapas are only a few examples of the delicatessens you can find and taste.

Alicante also stands for the multiculturality, since its strategic position served as settlement of different civilizations, from the phoenicians to the arabs. Building the latter the best known landmark of the city: The Santa Barbara Castle.


Located in the middle of one World Heritage, the biggest palm tree grove of Europe, Elche is the 3rd most populated city of the Valencian Community. Surrounded by graffiti art, a tiny river flows in between the city, dividing it in two. Here you will feel the calm by going for a walk through the park, or by observing its breathtaking Basilica of Santa Maria in the city center. Definitely, this city has its own essence.


Tabarca is a small island located within a few miles of Alicante’s Coast. Nowadays, it is a fishing village best known for holding one of the most famous diving areas in the Mediterranean sea. The excellent preservation state and its pristine waters hide many marine wonders among rich and biodiverse 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. This town of artists is considered as one of the most beautiful towns of Spain and a must if you are coming to Alicante.
