Tourism in Alicante
The most visited are the beaches of San Juan and El Postiguet, whose chiringuitos (food and beverage stands) make it the center of the citys nightlife. Both are urban beaches, with fine white sand and all manner of services, earning each the EUs Blue Flag.
The city of Alicante contains numerous attractions, and markets and hawkers selling products that range from artisans crafts to food. Culturally, the city has much to offer: summer cinemas open near the sea, numerous malls and movie parlors, the castle of Santa Bárbara, the Archeological Museum, the Town Hall, and a Baroque palace from the 18th century.
As far as nightlife goes, the city is divided into sectors. El Barrio, found in the old center of the city, is most popular with the younger crowd, with music and dancing and discoteques. Another important sector is La Zona, on San Fernando St, where you will find the most stylish joints. La Ruta de Madera is another popular sector, found in the avenue Alfonso X el Sabio, and is full of Irish- and American-style bars.
The nights can be enjoyed right on the beach in the port of Alicante.
The most chic area remains the Playa de San Juan, which contains the largest concentration of bars, discos, and chiringuitos in the whole city.
