Whether you visit Alicante to soak up the sun on the beaches, see the historical architecture, or simply relax under the palm trees in one of the many parks, your hire car will let you do it all, with freedom and at your own pace. Having been influenced by several kingdoms and empires such as Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs, Alicante is a city with colourful history and a great blend of architecture styles.
A great way to become familiar with the city is visiting Santa Barbara Castle, located on a large hill near the centre of the city: drive your rental car up to the largest castle in the Mediterranean and enjoy the amazing views over the city and the coastline from the hill. Narrow streets and lined with small charming shops make the Old Town the perfect place to visit Town Hall, The Cathedral of San Nicolas de Bari, and The Iglesia of Santa Maria, a gothic church dating back to the 1300s.
Relish the nice beaches and crystal-clear waters of Alicante and San Juan, eat delicious Paella in the "chiringuitos" and enjoy the vibrant night life in the famous street "El Barrio", definitely the best place to have a good time in the bars, pubs and clubs of the city. Don't miss Tabarca Island, located only 10 km off the coast of Alicante, and explore a protected marine reserve full of flora and fauna in an idyllic day-trip on a glass-bottomed boat.
If you are travelling with children, drive northeast to Benidorm, where you can visit Mundomar, an aquarium and marine zoo well known throughout Spain, Aqualandia, a water park placed in the same complex or Terra Mitica, an awesome amusement park with incredible roller coasters and entertainment.
