Places of interest in Alicante
Alicante is a province rich in cultural and natural heritage. There are a large number of towns worth visiting all along the coast to appreciate the combination of Mediterranean architecture and maritime nature. Without doubt, this great mixture makes some places of interest in Alicante essential for, at least, an excursion.
The Hotel Almirante team encourages you to make the most of your stay with us and visit the province’s different places of interest. Altea, Calpe or Agres are places we should not miss out on if we are in Alicante. Also, take a minute to browse through our highlighted places of interest, you could, without doubt, enhance your stay with a visit to any of them.
Altea is the first of Alicante’s places of interest that we would like to draw your attention to. A town situated in the Marina Baja district of Alicante, it is famous for its large number of monuments which, if you are going to be spending the day there, are a must-see.
Among them, the Hotel Almirante team highlights some, such as the Fornet or the old town. This is the oldest part of Altea and full of narrow streets that are full of charm. The Paseo Marítimo (Seafront Promenade) is a place you should not miss to enjoy Altea’s sea breeze and enjoy a drink on one of its terraces.
Continuing with towns on the Alicante coast, Calpe is another unmissable place of interest. With its famous Peñón de Ifach (Rock of Ifach), it is the perfect place for a day’s hiking up the most famous rocky massif on our coast.
The climb up the Rock of Ifach is totally prepared for walkers, although there are some stretches that are more complicated than others. The climb is hard but the views from the top are well worth the effort expended.
If we leave the coast and go inland into the interior of Alicante, beside the Sierra de Mariola (Mariola Mountain Range), we find the town of Agres. Surrounded by steep slopes, it is the departure point for a multitude of hiking trails through the mountains, a visit to the snow caves along the Ruta de les Caves (Route of the Caves) being highly recommended.
If you prefer something more peaceful, you can find the unique scenery at the Santuario de la Virgen del Castillo (Sanctuary of the Virgin of the Castle) in the highest part of Agres. A natural setting surrounded by vegetation and stony paths that is a delight for photography lovers.
Alicante has a large number of places of interest that are worth a day out. Discover what we suggest and, if you find any others, do not hesitate to tell us about them.
Our customers say
“Myself and my family stayed here for just over a week. The hotel is in a great location, literally right beside the beach and the tram stop is also less than a 5minute walk away which is great for getting into town.”
“The hotel itself is beautiful with a lot of detail having gone into the design of the rooms-the automatic shutting blinds is a first for me and a great touch to keep the light out of the room for good sleep. The rooms are clean and the Premium rooms stocked with all you need”
“Excellent hotel, first class service all round. Spotless and great attention to detail. Great location at San Juan beach and only 15mins on tram to Alicante centre.”
