Alicante sits on the south-east coast of Spain, right in the middle of the Costa Blanca. Over a million holidaymakers make a beeline here every year, mostly thanks to nearby beach towns like Benidorm and Altea.
But Alicante itself is also well worth a look. Moorish castles, treasure-packed museums and fine arts museums house themselves in centuries-old buildings. And its coastal spot puts Alicante between idyllic islets and low-rise mountains.
Best of all, Alicante is only a 3-hour flight away from Manchester.

Most people book flights from Manchester to Alicante for one reason – to kick back on the beaches of the sun-soaked Costa Blanca. Benidorm is the king of the beach resorts. Sky-high hotels, 24/7 nightlife, mountain-view beaches and a twisty old town have reeled in tourists since the 1960s.
Alternatively, you could stick around in Alicante. This ancient port city wears its history on its sleeve, so you could peer up at the Basilica of Santa Maria or spy panoramic views from Santa Barbara Castle.
You don’t have to worry too much about timing your Manchester to Alicante flights, either. The region is hotter and sunnier than Manchester year-round.
