Alicante – info

Alicante is a great place to go to for a “Language-holiday”. Enjoy the mild climate, the beaches, boats & laid back mediteranean atmosphere as well as the amazing seafood. Why don’t you take advantage of some cultural & language studies to see life abroad from a more local point of view? What a great way to avoid the tourist resorts of the Costa Blanca & have the best time ever in this multifaceted town full of history. Apart from the beaches & harbour, there is a variety of characterful urban quarters waiting to be explored.

Things to do in Alicante: 

Tabarca: Take a boat ride from the marina & escape to this tranquil island with its fortified town, beaches, coves, fishing port, eateries – car free ambience.

Guadalest Valley: Beautiful day trip to the mountains, see quaint villages, a blue lagoon & hilltop castle – stunning natural scenery!

Barrio Santa Cruz: Super picturesque town quarter, traditional colourful buildings, small squares, lovely restaurants – go get lost in the narrow streets!

Mercado Central: Local market in a magnificent Art Deco building, fresh produce, off the tourist track!

Museum of Contemporary Art: See the work of some of the 20th century’s most inspiring artists: Picasso, Miró, Dalí etc.
