Located in the Valencian Community of Spain, Alicante is both the bustling capital of Alicante province and a historic Mediterranean port. Boasting a population of over 337,000, it is the second largest city in the Valencian Community. Alicante draws its name from the Latin word "Lucentum" and the Greek root "Leuké," both translating as "white." The city has a rich history, with settlements dating back 7,000 years, and having been ruled by Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Moors, and later conquered by King Alfonso X.

A major Mediterranean trading station during the 18th and 19th centuries, Alicante experienced a resurgence in the 20th century, primarily due to the thriving tourism industry. Today, the Port of Alicante is reinventing itself as a leading cruise port, welcoming numerous cruise ships each year. With its hot semi-arid climate, Alicante offers some of the sunniest and warmest winter daytime temperatures in mainland Europe. The city is conveniently accessible via Alicante Airport, the Valencian Community's busiest airport, and Alicante railway station, served by Cercanías Murcia/Alicante and Renfe trains.

When to visit Alicante

The ideal time to visit Alicante with family is during the spring season, between March and May, when the weather is pleasant and welcoming. Summer, particularly July and August, provides more opportunities for family outings, though higher temperatures and larger crowds mean a potentially less comfortable stay. January is the coldest month, while March sees the highest rainfall.

For budget-conscious travellers, November boasts the lowest hotel prices in Alicante, with January and February offering cost-effective flight rates. For an affordable car rental experience, February is the cheapest month, providing daily car rentals at an average rate of $12 per 24 hours, although rates may vary. Plan your stay in Alicante around your preferences and budget requirements, and get ready for a memorable Spanish adventure.
