You basically HAVE to go if you’re in Alicante
Sep 2020
I own a 12m yacht, moored in Alicante Marina. I use it as a holiday home at present, and hope to retire here at some point.

Here’s the ‘skinny’ on Alicante Marina.

As a tourist spot, it’s ideal. During the day, it’s interesting to visit. You can marvel at the multimillion euro yachts. There’s a fair bit of coming and going. From super-yachts to smaller vessels. You can get fairly close to the boats, but security is absolute, and you won’t be allowed onto the pontoons unless you are a berthholder. There are various boat tours to take. From day trips to half an hour around the marina.

There are bars and restaurants aplenty. Tourist prices, to be sure. But plenty of good eating to be had, especially seafood, as one might expect. Not the best value to be had in Alicante, but the best views whilst you are eating, and still cheaper than the UK.

There’s a few good views of the city from the waterfront, and a lovely one of the castle on its hilltop at night.

During high season, there’s a few market stalls on the way into the Marina. Otherwise, the only shops are the ones catering to the boat owners. Sadly, no mini-mart. If you’re not planning on going for a drink in a bar, or a meal in a restaurant, it’s a good idea to take a large bottle of water with you. Even off season it can be hot and dry there.

If you don’t fancy the somewhat expensive eateries, you can always buy a few bits in a supermarket in town. Then sit on a bench and munch your way through your picnic.

Evenings are a good time to eat there. Given the illuminated cityscape. Also, there’s fewer mosquitoes than you get in the old town at night. Although, if you’re susceptible to bites, you still need to take precautions.

Alicante Harbour
Jul 2019
I can't recall ever seeing so many boats, yachts and other sea vessels in one place. It looked crowded, but yet well organized. I saw them from close up at the water front, from high up on Santa Barbara Castle, and eventually, I went up close an personal taking a walk down to the jetties. It was a worthwhile exercise in the cool of the evening to observe the people and their boats.

Stunning views
Apr 2019
Without doubt this was where the best views could be appreciated. It was a barmy spring evening and we had the benefit of clear skies, although you needed a jumper as the sun went down. A good place to eat or enjoy a drink and tapas. It gave an opportunity to slow down and relax.

Beautiful views across the Harbour. A must to visit if in Alicante. Take your time when there so you don't miss out on the views.

Beautiful Marina - Lots to See and Do
Jan 2020
We visited the area in January 2020, and although out of season the weather was still great and there was still plenty going on without it being too busy, there wasnt any watersports on offer (or readily seen) but all of the bars and restaurants were still open and it provided an opportunity to relax without hassle. Would recommend taking the opportunity to stroll slowly and look for fish in the clear water while looking for one of the various bars to sit back and drink in the view.

Very good place for a walk
Aug 2019
The marina is a very good place to have a stroll, have dinner in one of the many restaurants that border it, and even to take a bath in the neighbouring beach, which is surprisingly clean.

There's a galleon which I've been told was an attraction some months ago, but it's now closed and, as far as I can tell, neglected. A pity.
