Wow, can't believe that it was free to visit - except for the lift which was a minimal cost, and we walked down to get some exercise. Amazing views at the top

Take the lift opposite Alicante's town beach. It was only a couple of euros as you would have to be bonkers to attempt to would walk up this cliff in 30 degree heat!! Great little sat back of castle (easy to miss) really cheap with superb views.

Good view, not much else, takes up half a day.
Can be very hot and dusty, good solid footwear needed

Coming from downtown (south of the castle) it took us a long time to find a trail leading up. It started from a little park but no signs, no maps, nothing. Later when we came down we discoverd two other trails. One starting in another park, one is a steep stairway.
The castle premises are absolutely great. There is also a small and stylish cafeteria with a nice terrace and view. The selection of food, however, is very basic. Just pizza and pasta.
Highly recommendable overall! However, you should have enough water with you and maybe also some sun protection.

If you are in Alicante then you must take a trip - through the tunnel, up the lift and explore this castle. There is loads to see and the views are spectacular, over the harbour the city and beyond. Well cared for and presented. Good value for the entrance fee.
