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.
