In the south part of Alicante Costa Blanca coast, several kilometers away from the city and close to the Alicante airport, you can find an extraordinary Alicante Urbanova beach (playa de El Saladar). You can access it by the road N-332, direction Elche
This one is my favorite! If you are looking for a good place among beaches in Spain, this is the one. It is perhaps even longer than the beach of San Juan, offering a lot of space and an impressive view towards Alicante harbor and the castle of Saint Barbara.
Situated between two residential areas (the suburbs of Urbanova and Arenales del Sol), this Alicante beach does not attract large crowds, so you can really relax there peacefully. A large part of the beach between the suburbs is a nudist one, offering you a lot of free space and the true hot atmosphere of Alicante Costa Blanca.
Within the suburbs of Urbanova and Arenales del Sol, you can find a number of bars, restaurants and shops. Along Alicante Urbanova beach, there are many services for tourists, such as lifeguards and watchtowers, toilets, foot showers and parking facilities. The easiest way to arrive to Urbanova beach is by your car, passing by the train stop of San Gabriel, a nice park El Palmeral, Ibis and Etap hotels.
Another option is to take a bus number 27 in front of the main Alicante train station RENFE, which usually communicates once per hour. The bus leaves Alicante center at full hour and 45 minutes. It takes about 25 minutes to come to Urbanova beach. It leaves the beach at full hour and 15 minutes (once you are in Alicante, please check for possible changes of the summer timetable).
The central Postiguet beach
Discover this gem, just a walk away from Alicante City Hall. The Postiguet beach invites you to have a walk along its lively promenade.
The San Juan beach
Impressively long San Juan beach of Alicante Costa Blanca is for sure one of the best on the Spanish coast.
The Albufereta beach
Small and quiet Albufereta Alicante beach is a pleasant alternative to other main beaches of our city.
The rocky beach of Cabo de las Huertas
Feel the wildness and freedom of untouched nature and relax on the rocks around the lighthouse of Cabo de las Huertas.
