This sun-soaked region of Spain is home to 244 kilometres of stunning Mediterranean coastline. The Alicante coastline extends from the cape Cap de la Nau in the north to the salt water lagoon of Mar Menor in the south.
The translucent waters of the Mediterranean lap against golden sands and hidden coves. Artists, divers, surfers, bathers, and, of course, sun worshippers have all been attracted by this magnificent coastline.
A mountain escape
Alicante is a mountainous province, particularly in the north and west. The highest points are Aitana at 1,410 metres and Puig Campana at 1,389 metres. The mountains and their foothills provide a cool place to escape to in the height of summer.
