Holidays to Costa Blanca often revolve around the beach but Playa De San Juan is the ultimate, with its soft, white sands. With a beach that stretches out for eight kilometres, on holidays to Playa De San Juan there's not much chance of getting lost among crowded coastlines or missing out on a good spot.
When you're not swimming or sunbathing, take advantage of the restaurants and bars that line the promenade. From paella and fresh seafood to cocktails and local wines, it's a gastronomical treat. The beach isn't the only activity in Playa De San Juan holidays though. You're 15 minutes away from Alicante, you can sail over to Tabarca Island, or you can make the most all of the watersports on offer here.
While the peace and quiet of Playa De San Juan holidays is certainly enticing, Alicante offers a glimpse of the more lively side of life here. It's only a 15-minute drive away, so it's easy to go there for some great food and evening entertainment.
If possible, try to work a full day of sightseeing into your itinerary. Santa Barbara Castle is a fascinating old fortress that overlooks the city and the surrounding bay. It's a highlight for any visitor, as are the views of the area from there.
Likewise, put the old town of Barrio de Santa Cruz on your list. It's a magical place made up of narrow streets, old houses and brightly-coloured plants. Some of Alicante's best bars and restaurants are hidden away down its ancient alleyways.
