Trains to Alicante

Alicante is one of the three provinces of the Comunitat Valenciana. Located in the heart of the Costa Blanca, by the sea and protected by mountains, Alicante is a beautiful coastal city with a great quality of life, enhanced by its incredible temperate climate, with more than three hundred days of sunshine a year and average temperatures of 18 degrees Celsius. 

The city offers countless attractions to its visitors, such as an important historical and cultural heritage resulting from the various peoples that have settled in this territory over the centuries, a renowned Mediterranean gastronomy and an extensive line of beaches with wide sandy beaches and shallow, crystal-clear waters, which you can enjoy for many months of the year thanks to its privileged weather conditions. 

The beaches and coves of the city and the entire province of Alicante are among the best on the Mediterranean coast and are recognised with the blue flags awarded by the European Community.
