• As one would expect of a sea-oriented city, the sea front (with its beaches, port and promenade) is the main characteristic of Alicante. The fine sands of san Juan, the well-known beach furthest to the north with a full range of services and seasonal facilities for the rental of catamarans and windsurfs, stretches 3 km to Cape Huertas which separates it from the popular Albufereta beach. Next to the town centre and the promenade lies Postiguet beach, a former spa and now lively all year round.

    The port is the busiest leisure area in Alicante with, in addition to restaurants, pubs and discos, a yacht club and marina with hundreds of possibilities for learning to sail: dinghy sailing, chartered vessels and diving centres. Boats sail from the port to the Isla de Tabarca marine nature reserve, with a small, clean, sand and pebble beach and a remarkable seabed carpeted in underwater plants that is a paradise for diving enthusiasts.

    Finally to the south of the port lies Saladar beach with its fine sand and wide range of facilities. Sport activities are complemented by three excellent golf courses plus a tennis club, riding club and a wide selection of sports facilities.
