Parks and nature in Alicante

Top nature recommendations from locals

Castle
“This is the first place I recommend visiting in Alicante. A magnificent fortress - a castle founded by the Arabs in the ninth century AD, majestically rises above our city from where a beautiful view of the whole neighborhood opens! You must see it! Do not forget to use a special elevator that is located directly opposite the beach.”

Beach
“El Postiguet beach is located in the heart of the city at the foot of Santa Barbara Castle. It is a beautiful beach, awarded the Blue Flag, certifying the quality of the EU. It has a tongue of sand over 900m in length and is noted for its fine white sand bordered by a fantastic full promenade of palms trees (the Esplanade) . El Postiguet beach is one of the best beaches near Alicante.”
