Recreation areas in Alicante
Alicante – the pearl of Spain. It is hard to believe that once on the site of this world famous resort there was a small fishing village, the lands of which for centuries passed from one conquerors to others. Now it is a developing area where a person rests in body and soul.
Alicante has recently become a tourist center of the country, but has already managed to please the impressive number of people from Europe.
The centuries-old history of Alicante is reflected in the architecture and various attractions. The main symbol of this resort is the castle called Santa Barbara. No, no, there is nothing in common with the famous soap opera – only the name. But this castle also has its endless history with secrets and even mysticism.
Another of the most visited places is the Santa Cruz quarter. Where else can you dream and enjoy the bright architecture, if not on its narrow streets. But there is one building that stands out from the rest. This is the church of Santa Maria. What is special about it? The church, made in the Gothic style, which can not but attract the attention of passers-by. Also, Santa Maria was built on the site of a mosque. How it happened – you will know when you arrive in Alicante.
The historic center is the area west of Mount Benatankil, which has the shape of a face. It is here that the ancient cathedrals and temples, museums, restaurants, galleries, cafes and luxury hotels are located. It is always crowded here at any time of the day or night.
Also in this area can be attributed Esplanade, the avenues of which are decorated with palm trees, and the tracks are made of millions of marble tiles with different patterns and colors.
Well, respectively, the most important area of Alicante, is a collection of numerous beaches. Thanks to clean sand, warm sea and beautiful embankments, this resort is one of the best in Europe, and maybe in the world, but this is up to you. It is impossible to describe all this beauty with words, but we can tell about what people have done for the comfort of tourists.
First of all – safety. Of course, you can find wild beaches, although they are few, but, nevertheless, we recommend visiting well-appointed places. On the local beaches rescuers are constantly on duty. There are cozy bars and cafes with magnificent views of the sea. Also for lovers of outdoor activities on the beaches of Alicante, instructors work on all kinds of water sports. For children, there are playgrounds where you can leave your child under supervision. There are also children’s areas to visit, accompanied by parents.

Coves of Cabo de Huertas. An ideal place for scuba diving. But we must warn that these bays are close to nudist beaches, so carefully read the signs if you do not want to see fans of this type of recreation in full beauty.
