It’s also a great base for exploring the Costa Blanca and further afield, with road links connecting it to cities like Valencia and even Madrid just a few hours’ drive along the motorway.

Whatever you’re planning for your stay, you’ll find our pick-up point conveniently located within the arrivals area at the Airport, just a short distance from the terminal.

Driving in and around Alicante

Alicante

Alicante Airport, also known as Alicante-Elche, is situated south-west of the city, just a 15-minute drive along the A-70 or the N-332. Both of these roads will take you right into the heart of the city, where you’ll find the waterfront and scenic old town. Parking is prohibited in areas where the curbs are yellow, and pay-and-display parking bays are marked in blue.

If you’re planning to explore the coastal areas of Spain on your journey, Alicante is a good starting point. Just a couple of hours up the coast via the A-7 motorway you’ll find Valencia, Spain’s third-largest city with lively nightlife, year-round festivities and a fascinating mix of classic and contemporary architecture.

Around an hour from Alicante in the other direction along the A-7 lies the city of Murcia, home to some of the best tapas in Spain and a pretty old town filled with churches and museums. Along the way, it’s worth stopping in Elche, a city famous for its palm trees with an orchard that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Driving is a great way to get around Alicante and the surrounding areas, but it’s worth taking some time to learn about the rules of the road in Spain before you arrive. Use of mobile phones while driving is strictly prohibited, and the wearing of seatbelts is mandatory. Cars must also contain safety equipment like reflective jackets and warning triangles – we’ll make sure you’re fully equipped.

Roads marked as ‘péaje’ are toll roads, while speed limits vary from 120 km/h on freeways, down to 50 km/h in towns and other built-up areas. You’ll find this a lovely part of Spain to drive in, packed with scenic roads and glimpses of the sea.

A quick guide to Alicante

Alicante

With soft, sandy beaches and clear blue waters stretching far into the distance, Alicante is the perfect place to relax and soak up some sun. But there’s plenty more on offer in this marvellous Mediterranean city, from the 16th century Santa Barbara castle to gardens and museums.

Gateway to the Costa Blanca

Alicante boasts an impressive landscape, with the beaches of Cabo de las Huertas and Santa Pola to either side, and Mount Benacantil visible from one of its most popular beaches, El Postiguet.

On top of the mountain is the castle of Santa Barbara. The origins of this castle lie in the late 9th century, when a structure was built on this site by the region’s former Muslim rulers, although the current castle is from the 16th. Today it’s a popular tourist attraction offering unsurpassed views of Alicante Bay.

Culture lovers might also want to visit the Museum of the City of Alicante at the castle, where you can learn all about its rich and varied history. You can drive to the castle along the road on the north face of Mount Benacantil or access it via a lift built into the rocks opposite El Postiguet beach.

Food and festivals

If all the sightseeing has made you hungry, Alicante boasts a plethora of tapas restaurants where you can sample local dishes such as Jamón ibérico and montaditos – grilled sandwiches with various fillings of meat and vegetables. You’ll find many of the best places to eat dotted along the Paseo Explanada de España close to the seafront.

Alicante also has a lively calendar of events, and if your visit falls around the end of June, you might witness the city’s Fogueres de Sant Joan festival, a four-day event when the city is filled with celebratory bonfires and fireworks.

Sun, city and beach

A car makes it possible to enjoy some other great destinations along this area of the coast. Easily accessible by car along the A-7 motorway lies Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, filled with a wealth of things to see and do.

One of the most famous buildings in Valencia is the City of Arts and Sciences, a complex containing a science museum, planetarium and aquarium alongside a cinema and opera house. Many of its buildings were designed by the celebrated architect Santiago Calatrava and the impressive site can sometimes give the impression of being an alien landscape, or something from a sci-fi movie.

Another of the city’s most popular attractions is its cathedral, which lies on the former site of a Roman temple. It houses what is claimed to be the original Holy Grail and you can also enjoy impressive views from its bell tower.

It’s also worth paying a visit to the Central Market – Mercato Centrale - housed in an impressive building with stained glass and mosaics. Here you’ll find hundreds of stalls selling seafood, meats and other fresh produce, where you can spend some time browsing or sit down with a drink and soak up the atmosphere. Renting a car for your visit to Spain opens up the possibility to explore this and all the other glorious attractions the region has to offer.
