    This is undoubtedly one of the city's strong points. Alicante's mild climate makes beach-life feasible practically all year round. You certainly have a lot of beaches to choose from.
    An open beach? La Playa de San Juan, with seven kilometres of golden sand flanked by a road enabling you to stop wherever you want.
    A secluded beach? La Albufereta, an intimate, residential stretch of sand, protected by the headland of the Serra Grossa.
    An urban beach? El Postiguet, located almost within the city itself, at the foot of the Benacantil mountain, next to the port. And there's still another called los Saladares, Iying south of the city in the area known as Agua Amarga.
    The sands simply never run out in Alicante. But if you prefer rocks, at the Cabo de las Huertas you'll find a rugged, rocky area with coves such as los Cantarales, los Judios and Palmera.
    Nudist beaches? El Saladar and Los Judios. For scuba divers we can recommend the shores of the Isla de Tabarca off the coast.
