Alicante is a multi-faceted city. Constantly changing around every corner as you stroll around. Its port is similar to most other Spanish ports. The Playa del Postiguet is an expanse of soft creamy sand with an ample supply “to rent” sun loungers, parasols, cabana beds, beach volleyball courts, and ocean-view bars. Whilst the Explanada de Espana is a perfectly straight street of waterside restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and the odd craft stall.
