Nice long beach with lots of restaurants and bars nearby. Worth a visit if you are in Alicante. It is a bit away from the main city but it has good connectivity. We preferred this beach over the Postiguet beach in the city.

Quiet, about 8km long, well maintained beach, along which there are a skatepark, kids playgrounds, restautants, fields for soccer etc. Excellent for jogging and walking. If you want a busier place, this is not for you. Easily reached by tram or bus 21 from Alicante (about 25min, less than 1€ if you buy a card with 10 trips)
