5 Day Alicante Itinerary – Discovering Costa Blanca

On the Spanish Mediterranean coastline of Costa Blanca is the dynamic, delicious, picturesque, and laid back city of Alicante.

One of the star coastal regions is Costa Blanca and one of the best ways to explore it is by flying into the city of Alicante and getting to know what makes this a favourte vacation spot for many.



It was a match made in heaven because we got all of our adventure out of our system in Iceland which allowed us to turn on relaxation mode afterwards.

I've always found this to be a nice quick-reference for when you travel especially for Alicante where you might have a few restaurants in mind that you want to eat at.

Day 1 – Exploring the City

You'll spend the day getting to know Alicante by meandering through the streets, taking a look at the local art work and pass by the beautiful fountain at Plaza de Los Luceros.

You'll be spending most of the day chilling out at Playa de San Juan. I love coming here because it's a long stretch of beach lined with plenty of restaurants and cafes. The sand and water is also extremely clean.

Day 2 – Beach Day

Day 3 – Day Trip to Altea

A trip to Costa Blanca wouldn't be complete without a visit to the picturesque white-washed alleyways of Altea. You'll be expanding your exploration zone and soon find out why they call this the “Santorini of Spain”.
