Its pleasant climate, sun-soaked days, the open and hospitable character of its inhabitants all make the Costa Brava an ideal place to enjoy your free time in all its different forms.

A dip in the warm waters of its beaches, unforgettable walks, outdoor sports, an ice-cream on its iconic terraces, dinner with friends, dancing and laughing to your heart's content... all this and much more is what a visitor can find in these lands.

Alicante and Elche are ideal for water sports. The Mediterranean sea is 'open' all year round for water sports.

Walking along the streets of these cities is like being bathed with vitality, enjoying the intricate historical centres with their classic buildings, from the ultra modern to the traditional, shops, bars and restaurants, urban beaches, public squares and gardens - all of this invites you to take in the Mediterranean atmosphere and give you a new lease of life. The Explanada de EspaƱa (Esplanade of Spain), the Santa Cruz Barrio, the Postiguet Beach, Alicante port, the Palmeral de Elche (Elche Palm Grove) and the Parque Municipal (Municipal Park) next to the VinalopĆ³ River are some of the finest places the area has to offer the visitor, and many more just waiting to be discovered.

These are cities that do not sleep. The night starts with the excitement of people looking for the best tapas bars to build up the energy for a long night of dancing and laughter in the best party clubs. In Alicante, the centres for night life are in areas such as Casco Antiguo (The Old Town) or the Port. In Elche, the area which offers the greatest amount of entertainment is in the city centre where there is a succession of terraces and bars, the 'El Raval' sector with its family atmosphere and the Altabix Polygon, an area of large nightclubs par excellence.
