San Juan beach is a nice loooong beach in Alicante where I was visiting my cousin several times. As she lives in Alicante, she always told us not to go to the central beach as it`s too overcrowded. And she was right. Beach in the centre of Alicante is usually full of tourists and locals and it is being overcrowded... More

May be best beach I've ever been. This huge area was surprisingly clean and there was lots of playgrounds for kids.

15-20 minutes from the Melia Alicante hotel and there's 7 km of sand and sea in front of you. It's the place where I would stay next time for the beach vacation in Alicante province.

We visitied San Juan Beach twice recently. It is a huge beach, with bus links that leave you ten minutes away. It is very popular with locals - but the waiters,lifeguards etc didn't have very good english and were not friendly to us at all. The sand is roasting so use the boardwalks provided! As other reviewers have mentioned sunbeds... More

San Juan beach is divided into many smaller sections such as Carabiners and Muchavista. Only 15 mins from Alicante city, the beaches are very clean, water quality is excellent, and many have small bars and cafés nearby. Plenty of room for swimmers and sun worshippers. Sunbed hire is reasonable, €12 for 2 comfortable beds and a large umbrella. Worth travelling... More

This is an absolutely beautiful beach, the water is shallow a long way in and the beach is clean. It is a popular beach with a few cafe's at various points so demand is high and snacks are expensive. There is a McDonald's which if you are nearby is a cheaper option. Two Sunbeds and one umbrellas cost 12 Euro... More

I have never set foot in such warm waters(well, this is not due to the beach, obviously, due to the warm currents, but still:)) Nice, quiet, not too many tourists, you can enjoy a great day at the beach. Very clean, too. Could do better on the entertainement... More

This really is a lovely spot for grown ups and families. The beach is vast, cleaner than clean and relaxed. Dotted along the promenade are a huge array of lovely restaurants where you can sit beneath the shade of palm trees and either have a cocktail in a trendy bar on a white leather sofa watching the sun go down...
