Alicante Destination Guide

Fly Direct to Alicante 

Get your Alicante sun holiday off to a perfect start and enjoy close airport parking with short walks to the terminal. You’ll also love the relaxed atmosphere at Shannon - no congestion and no hassle, guaranteed! 

Just a few hours’ flight away, Alicante in Spain offers high temperatures all year round and offers so much to visitors. From culture and history to great nightlife, golf, and more, it’s also the home of the world famous Costa Blanca. You can choose between the busy resorts of Playa del Postiguet, Playa San Juan or the tranquility of Playa del Coco – and plenty in between! 

When you land 

From the airport, expect to pay €20 for a taxi to the city centre and you’ll get there in 15 minutes. The bus takes a bit longer at 45 minutes but will only set you back €1.  

Where to stay 

With 245 kilometres of coastline, there are lots of great accommodation options in the region. Benidorm, Denia, Torrevieja, and Calpe are some of the most popular destinations and all have options to suit all budgets.  

Local Culture 

There’s a load more to Alicante than beaches and sun! And the architecture, character and energy of the Mercado Central, a fine example of 20th century design, is a perfect starting point. For a real taste of the region, a trip to Guadalest Valley to relax in the village of Guadalest is well worthwhile. 

Going for the golf? 

Whether you play off scratch or just pick up a club now and again, you’ll have plenty of courses to choose from. Make sure to book well in advance for discounted green fees or you could end up paying up of €70 per player otherwise.
