The town is bustling with visitors enjoying the beautiful, white sandy beaches. It is completely family friendly and although it is the busiest beach I've ever visited, it somehow felt like there was still plenty of room for all of us. The weather has been 90 degrees and the water is wonderfully warm. The surf breaks are fun and family... More

Got the tram to the beach to have a change from the pool and San Juan was recommended by the staff at Hospes Amérigo in Alicante. Lovely beach - busy but we got a spot and Stephen was happy. Very Spanish too which we love (SCOTTISH blending in now that we are tanned) Water blue and perfect temperature in this... More

Took Yellow line from the Mercado entrance to the "tram" got off at Muchavista, better to go to Salesians or Fabaquer, they have chairs/lounges for rent and umbrellas, public water, not drinkable, to clean your feet, changing rooms, there are some restaurants either by the sand or across the street. Good beach, white sand, clean water, grass patches like Postiguet,... More

We came over here from Playa Portiguet for a change of scene - we got the tram which was super cheap and the beach was so worth it! Water was very warm, scenery was very beautiful, and it was muy tranquila!

The beach has fine sand and is 7 km long. There are sun beds and umbrellas to rent for 12 Euro a day. The worst is that there is hardly any toilet at sight. Asking personell at a beach bar they told me that there are far too few toilets. From where I had the sun bed, they said it... More

My concept of beach is white san, long beach, warm water and view. This beach has all of these for 2 km. The front street is full of restaurants, the area is surrounded by buildings with garden and swimming pool. You can take the tram 4, bus 21 or 22 to arrive. From the city center should be around 20... More

The best beach in the area and similar to the white sand beaches in Palma de Mallorca! Absolutely clean and beautiful, with lots of cafes and restaurants just across the street.

It is the best beach in Alicante from my point of view. It is a bit far from the city center what makes it a very quiet beach.

We were in Alicante Jun 2015, visited San Juan beach. We went there with tram, such a nice trip through the coast. We had coffee, enjoy the sun, the beach, the sea. We will come back for sure. Love Spain and the every bit of the time we spent there.
