The beach is a sandy strip, originating from the sea of Marina of Santa Pola, near the hotel Melia Aliсante and ends at the rocky part recoupable coastal strip.

The beach is sandy and gently sloping, with a smooth sandy entry into the sea. A wide and most important - clean. Since the beach is quite wide, even in the height of tourist season on the beach enough space. Every night the sand is cleaned and leveled, so from 03:00 am to 08:30 a.m. the beach is closed to the public. The sand on the beach like the sand in our local children's sandboxes.

The beach is equipped with showers with fresh water, toilets, deckchairs and sun umbrellas that can be rented for an additional fee. Because the beach is flat and sandy, the sun beds for a fee, there is a great need, will be enough beach towels. By the way, going to the beach for the day, don't forget to bring a sun umbrella.

We were in Alicante from late August to mid-September, in the afternoon the air temperature rose to +38 degrees Celsius. So don't forget to take with you sun cream. One day we forgot to put a protective lotion on the ankles, so they burned just a couple of hours.

The beach has football and volleyball courts, facilities for water sports, children's Playground and a technical area. So on this beach everyone will find something to their liking.

The undoubted advantage of the beach is its closeness to the historical part of the city of Alicante. After the embankment, and crossing the carriageway of the road, you exit the symbol of Alicante, the famous pedestrian Boulevard Esplanada (Explanada de España) Paseo Marítimo and will be in the heart of the historic part of the city, studded with numerous shops, eateries and restaurants serving dishes to suit every taste.

The water in the sea

Of sea water is worth mentioning separately.

The sea water is clean and clear. Before lunch she is calm, and at noon begin to rise the waves and enhanced as nightfall. You can kill two birds with one stone, the morning enough to napravilsya in clean and calm water, and in the second half of the day to play and to napryagatsya in waves.

We are fans of swimming, so approximately 10:00 am were already at the beach and enjoyed the calm sea water.

Europeans are not big fans of water treatments, they mainly bask on the sand, and if you swim, you go chest deep water and stand in it, probably from that swim many simply do not know. This was another plus for us! The two of us Yes, even a couple of people floating away from the shore.

The sea water was warm. To enter it is a pleasure, even if before you a few hours basking under the warm sun, still will not feel uncomfortable.

During our visit to Alicante city (August-September) the water temperature in the sea has reached 27 degrees Celsius.

Mediterranean Spain

Still one of the best and most famous beaches Spain is considered to be Playa de San Juan/Playa de la San Juan. It lies approximately 9 kilometres from the centre of Alicante and is a long strip of sand of about three kilometers and a width of approximately 80-90 meters.

Albufereta beach/Playa de la'albufereta

Located in the direction of Benidorm from the historic centre of Alicante, but unlike the beach of San Juan near the town of Alicante. Compared to the first two, this beach is smaller, but also sandy and quite beautiful, with playgrounds.

Almadraba beach/Playa de la Almadraba

Almadraba, a small uncrowded beach similar to a Bay. Tourists on this beach is not as much as the first three. Located between the beaches of Albufereta and San Juan.

The Bay of Cabo de Huertas/Calas de Cabo de Huertas

The beaches of Cape de Huertas rocky, mostly wild and not adapted for a comfortable beach holiday. In addition to reach some of them quite difficult, but clear water and thinly populated, must be ensured here. A great place to swim with mask and flippers, to retire or to sunbathe Topless.

The Beach Saladar/Urbanova

This beach is located in a residential area of the city, towards the airport from the city centre of Alicante. The beach is quiet and uncrowded.

For us the best beach of Alicante became the Central Postiguet beach. Its advantages: the proximity to the city centre, offers guests the opportunity not only to swim and sunbathe, but also enjoy local life, attractions, food and Hiking. The disadvantage, crowded in high season.

Second place went to the beach of San Juan, a clean, wide, beautiful promenade suitable for walking and for sports and just relaxing with the kids. The only drawback, the distance from the historic centre of Alicante.

Of course, all of us, choose to stay Sunny coast of Spain, mainly for the sea and beaches, and only then, for the purposes of diversity in the surroundings, think about the attractions. So in Alicante is best to settle near the place where you will spend most of the time, and this, of course, the beach. Well when he's in a walking distance. Although it may seem that the city has many hotels and apartments, but really close to the beach Postiguet not so much. Accommodation facilities on the coast it is better to book in advance as during the high holiday season most of the good options at reasonable prices are already occupied.
