Essentials in Alicante

Bonfires of Saint John: This huge festival attracts thousands every year from all over Europe. It takes place during the summer solstice and is well worth witnessing. Huge paper effigies are burned on the beaches, followed by a night of parties.

MUBAG: If you fit one museum into your itinerary, make sure it's this one. It showcases the best in modern art as well as some gems from the 16th and 17th centuries by artists from the Valencia region.

Beaches: There are at least 5 beaches within the city limits, the most popular being Playa de Postiguet. If you want to skip the tourist crowds, head to El Saladar beach which is closer to the airport so you'll need a car hire from Alicante to get there.
