Nice long beach with lots of restaurants and bars nearby. Worth a visit if you are in Alicante. It is a bit away from the main city but it has good connectivity. We preferred this beach over the Postiguet beach in the city.

Quiet, about 8km long, well maintained beach, along which there are a skatepark, kids playgrounds, restautants, fields for soccer etc. Excellent for jogging and walking. If you want a busier place, this is not for you. Easily reached by tram or bus 21 from Alicante (about 25min, less than 1€ if you buy a card with 10 trips)

This beach is just 8km from Alicante city center. It's a fantastic beach in terms of weather, water, conditions, etc. The strip is full of restaurants from Upper End to Middling and down to Burger King. The water is warm and clean (you can see your feet even when you're thigh deep). The sand is soft (not full of shells).... More

If you're in Alicante I would recommend this beach over any others. It's much bigger than the beach right in Alicante and there are more beach restaurants and bars. It is beautiful and the waves are bigger so sea swimming is more fun. Extremely clean as well. Take the us number 22 from Alicante all the way here for €1.45

This beach is located around 20 minutes away from the city center of Alicante by tram. It is really beautiful and the water is awesome. There are many restaurants (not too expensive) nearby. Some souvenir shops also (in the summer at least) I absolutely recommend this beach, way better than the one in the city center of Alicante. :-) Enjoy!
