What many people do not realise is that Alicante has its very own beach in the heart of the City, just below the famous Santa Barbara Castle (Castillo de Santa Barbara) which is called Playa de Postiguet.
Postiguet Beach in Alicante is a 900m long wide arc of golden sand with a maximum width of approximately 50m. Situated below the imposing Monte Benacantil and Santa Barbara Castle, Postiguet Beach is superbly positioned for easy access and is backed by a palm shaded promenade containing bars and restaurants. With its Blue Flag Award for cleanliness, golden sands, palm tree boardwalk and clear blue waters, Postiguet Beach is an absolute favourite with both locals and holidaymakers alike and is cleaned every night in the early hours.
Apart from the clean sand, water, easy accessibility and restaurant facilities already mentioned, Postiguet Beach in the heart of Alicante also offers :
Slides and games for children
First Aid and Disabled Access
Car parking at the nearby Marina
Sunbed and Parasol Hire
Locker hire for your valuables
Off shore bouncy castle
During the summer, in the evenings, there are many parties here as well as some sports events with giant TV screens erected on Postiguet Beach, and the beach takes on special significance during the Alicante Hogueras celebrations in June with bonfires, fireworks and parties being held there. And, when you have finished your day on the beach, why not sit at one of the bars and restaurants overlooking Postiguet Beach and enjoy a cocktail or beer or enjoy an evening meal of locally caught seafood, fish and paella.
