What to expect in Alicante

Alicante is the gateway to Spain's beautiful Costa Blanca. Tourists flock to the region due to its gorgeous weather and low prices. The average summer temperature is a very pleasant 26°C and during winter you can expect a mild 12°C. Whatever time of year you visit you're pretty much guaranteed some sunshine. You don't need a lot of money to have a good time in Alicante. A draught beer costs little over £1*, and dinner for two is just over £20*. Alicante is one hour ahead of Cardiff and the currency is the Euro (€). English is spoken by most people in the resorts by the coast, but if you're planning on staying in a rural area it's a good idea to learn a few Spanish phrases before you arrive. Hello (hola), goodbye (adios), please (por favor) and thank you (gracias) are a good foundation.
