When to go
Alicante’s semi-arid climate means it’s warm year-round, but hottest and busiest between June and August, when temperatures often exceed 30ºC. Late spring and autumn bring better rates and fewer crowds.

PlanesThe best place to touch down is Alicante Airport, which is served by daily flights from most larger UK airports. The frequency of services goes up during the summer (as do prices, so book early if possible).
TrainsRenfe Operadora’s high-speed trains run from Valencia, Madrid and Barcelona – taking two, four and five hours respectively – to Alicante’s city-centre station.
AutomobilesYou won’t need a car if you’re staying in the city, but having your own set of wheels will come in handy if you’re travelling inland or up the coast. Most of the big-name rental firms have a stall at the airport.
