The region of Alicante has become, over the years, one of the favourite spots on the Mediterranean coast.

It is a destination that receives an increasing number of tourists, both nationals and foreigners, and is equally popular with groups of friends who decide to seek refuge during their holidays as well as with families looking for a well-deserved holiday.

However, little by little, the concept of the coast as an exclusive place to enjoy during the summer months is being left behind and all its benefits are becoming better known.

In addition to this, we must add that it is a destination for which more and more foreigners feel a special attraction to make Alicante their second or even first residence.

Altea, El Campello, Javea, Denia and Alicante itself. All of them offer countless attractions throughout the year that make them a special destination at any time of the year.

Today, however, we are going to give you what, in the opinion of the MAM team, are the things that a person visiting Alicante for the first time during the month of February cannot miss if they want to fall madly in love with this incredible area and make it their favourite corner.

Is this your first time in Alicante? Take note of these 10 things you can’t miss this February.

It’s true that depending on who you talk to, they will be able to give you some recommendations or others. We, after trying to put our teams and the recommendations of many of us, are going to bring you what for the MAM team are the 10 basic activities you should not miss if you are going to spend a few days in the Alicante area during this month of February that has just begun.

Let’s get started!

  1. Visit the incredible beaches with crystal clear water.

The Alicante Region is famous for its dream beaches. It is true that February is not a month for swimming, but it is a month to enjoy the pleasant temperatures, sunny days and a nice walk on the beach.

Among our favourites, we cannot forget the Playa del Postiguet, the essential Cala del Moraig in Benitachell or enjoy the views and the restaurant at El Portixol in Jávea or the wonderful Cala de la Granadella also in Jávea.  And, if you have the chance, it is a highly recommendable option to rent a boat and visit the different coves from the water. Undoubtedly, a unique and worthwhile view.


  1. The charm and secrets of the coastal villages.

If there is one thing that makes the Region stand out, it is the quantity and diversity of coastal villages full of charm and character that we can find.

Amongst our favourites, of course in one of the first places, we find Altea, with its old town of white houses and its iconic blue and white dome.

Another of our favourites is Villajoyosa and its colourful houses along the promenade.


  1. A piece of our history at the Castle of Santa Bárbara.

From almost anywhere in the city of Alicante you can see the imposing Castillo de Santa Bárbara, a medieval fortress that offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the sea.

Walking within its ancient walls, exploring its towers and learning about its fascinating history dating back over a thousand years is the best way to make time to enjoy our gastronomy.


  1. Follow the Route of the castles.

The Region of Alicante boasts a series of castles dating back to ancient times. Follow the Castle Route to visit historic monuments such as Guadalest Castle, which stands on a cliff and offers spectacular views. Other castles worth visiting are those of Biar, Sax and Elda.


5.Enjoy the best local gastronomy.

The gastronomy of the Alicante Region is a delicious mix of traditional Mediterranean dishes.

Of course, the paella valencia, so typical and typical of the area, but don’t forget the rice dishes and seafood of the region either. The Denia prawns are a must, as are the seafood stews.

For those with a sweet tooth, the turrón de Jijona is a real test.


  1. Experience the natural world at the Laguna de la Mata Nature Reserve.

For nature lovers, the Laguna de la Mata near Torrevieja is a real paradise. This protected area is home to a wide variety of water birds and native flora. Stroll along the trails around the lagoon, observe pink flamingos in their natural habitat and marvel at the natural beauty of this tranquil setting.

The Sierra de Aitana is another ideal spot for hiking routes in this mountain range, where you will find breathtaking natural landscapes.

If you enjoy watching migratory birds, a visit to the Salinas de Santa Pola, a protected natural area, is a must.


  1. A visit to the best wineries in Alicante.

The Alicante area is also known for its great wines. It is not a bad option to immerse yourself in the wine tradition of Alicante and visit some of the wineries and enjoy a good wine tasting.


  1. Enjoy the Nightlife in Alicante’s Nightlife Area.

As the sun goes down, the city of Alicante comes alive with a lively nightlife scene. From traditional bars to trendy nightclubs, there is something for everyone. The Barrio de Santa Cruz is perfect for tapas and local wines, while the Port offers clubs that keep the party going until the early hours.


  1. Excursion to Tabarca Island.

Weather permitting, a boat trip to this island off the coast of Alicante is a must. Crystal clear waters, history and gastronomy in a unique place.


  1. Discover the Tradition of the Local Festivals.

February in Alicante is full of joy and colour with the celebration of Carnival. Enjoy parades, music, dancing and vibrant costumes in the streets of the city. The main parade takes place on the Saturday before Shrove Tuesday and is a perfect opportunity to soak up the festival atmosphere.

As we mentioned at the beginning, these are the 10 activities that we at MAM Solicitors consider a must-do for anyone new to Alicante and visiting the area for the first time this February.

We assure you that, if you want to suggest our destinations and new ideas, we would be delighted to read you all!
