Long, sandy, clean, well maintained beach a short tram ride North of the city. Much nicer than the crowded city beach.

Lovely long beach. Very hard to find parking, with lots of people but it is mid august so no surprise! Just dont be tempted to park too outlandishly ie between trees as a few cars were being towed away! The sea was lovely and salty but quite a lot of seaweed bits in it in the shallow water - clear...

Take the coastal tram from Luceros or Mercado on L4 go to PL.La Coruna or L3 go to Costa Blanca. The beach is totally unspoilt and I have spent many hours paddling along its length. Its a combination of the warm sea and the coolness of the sea breeze which makes it absolute magic. Right along the beach are small... More

It is a beautiful beach. Calm and blue waters. One can swim and bathe and sun bathe. It is a long stretch of sand beach with restaurants and most of them play good music. Food is good and not expensive.

As beaches go, this one is superb. Miles of fine sandy beach, clean walkways, not too crowded and although a holiday hotspot, it's largely Spanish residents and is more like a million miles from benidorm as opposed to the 30 or so in reality. Clean and tidy restaurants along the front and plenty space for all. Can't fault it for... More

I'm not a big fan of topless women, naked children, and locked bathrooms at my beaches (so obviously that makes the ocean one big toilet). It is a big beach, and the town around it is cool, but it could be much better.

Just returned from my 3rd visit - a beautiful location. Was apprehensive as Benidorm is not too far away and I imagined it would be loud here - how wrong was I? So clean, lots of room on the lengthy beach - nice bars and restaurants on the sea front and is indeed a family friendly place. A bus ride... More

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
