I saw Alicante for the first time this year in May and it was love at first sight. A city of beautiful beaches, one boulevard and beautifully restored townhouses overlooking a marina with yachts.

For me, as a sailor, the place is extremely important because of one of the most difficult regattas in the world “Ocean Race”. Since the start of this prestigious competition was held there in 2008, the place has been associated with the event forever. It is worth mentioning the distinctive “monument” that is the Open 70 full-size racing yacht standing on one of the main traffic street, as well as the Ocean Race interactive museum, established in 2012. Admission to the exhibition is free and gives you the opportunity to feel like a real racing sailor. More information can be found HERE.

Another attraction is undoubtedly the seafront boulevard La Explanada de Espana, whose sidewalk can be made dizzy by the arrangement of its tiles. This place gathers numerous tourists who want to take a stroll or sit down and eat Spanish food in one of the numerous restaurants or cafes.

Since I, unfortunately, am not a museum animal that is why I was not tempted to visit the Castillo de Santa Barbara towering over Alicante or the MUSA museum.

However, you should definitely consider a visit to the local Mercado Central, which was built between 1911 and 1912 and is Alicante’s main market. Located at 10 Alfonso X El Sabio Street and open Monday through Saturday from 07:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The market offers us excellent quality local products and preserves. That’s why it’s such a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. We can get there jamón serrano or ibérico, cheeses from the Iberian Peninsula or the delicacy Turrón, a kind of soft nougat with whole almonds and honey, which is traditionally prepared for Christmas.

Alicante is about 20 minutes away from the airport by car. We will get there from Poland by a convenient and direct flight. 

This city will offer us many attractions. I discover new places every time I go back there. Is it worth seeing? Yes! Is it worth returning? Always.

Located in the center of the Costa Blanca which is famous for the most beautiful sandy beaches in the area. In close proximity to the city are smaller villages that offer us a bit of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

There are places such as charming restaurants, golf courses, biking trails and long beaches perfectly suited for water sports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. 

The entire Costa Blanca is well connected, giving us easy access to major urban centers.

The most important thing is that the Mediterranean climate allows us to enjoy the beauty of the places both in summer and winter season. It is the Costa Blanca that is famous for its almost 300(!) days of sunshine a year.

Spain is a country where you can undoubtedly fall in love not only for a vacation but also for life. The high quality of Constructors’ services and turnkey finishing of apartments means that the real estate market there is currently experiencing a renaissance. It is important to note that for comparable prices to our Polish offerings, we are often able to get a new apartment larger or better finished than in Poland.

It is worth adding that buying property in the Costa Blanca region can also be a great way to invest money.
