    • Valencia Airport: Serving the capital of Valencian Community, of which Alicante is also a part of, this airport hosts flights to and from destinations all over Europe, as well as some in North Africa.
    • Murcia Airport: Just an hour’s drive from Alicante, the new Región de Murcia International Airport was opened in January 2019 when it replaced Murcia–San Javier Airport.

     

    Useful city facts

    • The two main languages of Alicante are Spanish and Valenciano, a local language similar to Catalan. English is well-known among the people working in the service industry.
    • Like most Spanish cities along the Mediterranean Coast, Alicante is warm and dry. Winters are generally mild, while summers can get extremely hot, with temperatures rising over 35 °C (95 °F).

    Top destinations and activities

    • Archeological Museum of Alicante. The museum uses modern technology to tell the story of Alicante’s past, from Stone Age through Iberian and Roman times to modern day. It features more than 80,000 artefacts found in the area. Lucentum Archaeological Site is another site where you can learn more about the area’s history and see the remains of the old Roman city.
    • Beaches. Obviously, one of the biggest attractions of Alicante is its location right on the Mediterranean, and it indeed has something to offer to every beach lover. Platja del Postiguet Beach is the fun one, Platja de San Juan Beach the most famous one, and Platja dels Arenals del Sol Beach the quiet one.
    • Alicante Museum of Contemporary Art. Also known as MACA, it is always hosting new exhibitions, as well as permanent ones with works of Picasso, Braque, Miro, and many others.

     

    Traffic and parking tips

    • Speed limits - 50km/h (31mph) in built-up areas, 90km/h (56mph) on most standard roads, 100km/h (62mph) on standard roads that are either one-way roads, roads with more than two lanes for at least one direction of traffic and roads with shoulders more than 1.5m wide, and 120km/h (74mph) on motorways (called autovías in Spain).
    • The car documentation and insurance always has to be inside a vehicle.
    • The driver and all passengers are required to wear seatbelts.
    • Children up to the age of 12 and measuring less than 135cm travelling on the front seat of a car must be seated in a child restraint system adapted to their size and weight.
    • Unnecessary use of audible warning devices (horns) is prohibited.
    • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.02% for novice drivers.
    • The emergency number is 112.

     

    Toll roads

    Most of the roads inside the country are toll-free. Toll roads are called ‘carretera de peaje’. On maps and road signs, all toll roads have to include a letter P after the road type. The payment method may vary depending on the road, but most will accept cash. Regardless of the region, the average estimated price is €9.5 ($11.25) per 100km by car. See the official website for prices and more information.

    Ideas for a day-trip

    • Elche. Alicante’s next door neighbor is a fun place to visit thanks to its palm grove, palaces, and relaxed atmosphere.
    • Murcia Autonomous Community. Just south of Alicante, this region gets less attention from international visitors, but you should not overlook it otherwise you’ll miss out on interesting towns, ancient Punic sites, and delicious cuisine.  
    • Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park. It takes about three hours to reach by car, but the largest protected nature area in Spain (and second in Europe) is a very rewarding destination thanks to its mountains, wildlife, and unique landscapes.

     

    Most popular rental types and cars

    The most popular rental car in Spain is the Ford Fiesta, but travelers tend to also choose the Fiat 500 and the Ford Focus a lot. The most popular car types are economy, compact and mini.

    Further destinations

    • Barcelona. One of the classiest and most fun cities in Europe is just five hours drive away.
    • Madrid. Although sometimes overlooked at the expense of beach destinations, Spain’s capital is a unique city that can be explored for days.
    • Andalusia. Just southwest of Alicante, Andalucia is proud, culturally distinct, and full of old cities and stunning nature.
