What to see, do and visit in Alicante and the surrounding region with your rental car

Alicante AVE Train Station

Alicante AVE station is located very close to the heart of the center city, on Avenida de Salamanca. It has direct connections to the Spain’s main railway stations at Atocha, Barcelona Sants and Joaquin Sorolla. Alicante is connected to Madrid by the A-31 motorway and to Barcelona and Valencia by the AP-7.

Just a few meters from the station you will find the office of Centauro, your car hire company in Alicante, and so you can set out on your adventure as soon as possible. In just 10 minutes by car, you can reach the foot of the Castle of Santa Barbara, in 7 minutes you can stroll through the Town Hall Square and in less than 5 minutes, you will arrive at the Central Market, the bustling heart of the city.

Get ready to enjoy Alicante’s beaches, green areas, monuments and fine cuisine, at your own pace, without obligations or timetables. 

Discover Alicante with your rental car

From monuments more than 10 centuries old to beaches in a nearly pristine, natural state. Alicante is a city that you will enjoy visiting from one end to the other. Its culinary options and mild temperatures make it the perfect destination to travel alone, as a couple or with your family. 

What to see in Alicante

Without leaving the city of Alicante, start your adventure touring the Old Town from the City Hall Square, built on the site of "La Casa de la Ciudad" (“The City’s House”) in the eighteenth century.  

From here, you can hop into your Centauro car and in 7 minutes you will be gazing up at Santa Bárbara Castle. At the foot of Mount Benacantil, you will discover the impressive 9th-century Moorish castle and the rocky outcropping called the "face of the Moor", one of iconic images of Alicante

In the Santa Cruz District you can lose yourself in the narrow alleys until you reach the Co-cathedral of Saint Nicholas, which combines Renaissance and Gothic styles, and is one the city’s most famous monuments. 

Continue on your itinerary until you reach the main artery of Alicante, the avenue of Alfonso el Sabio, where the Central Market is held.  

And then, to top off your day, enjoy the sunset on the Explanada de España. This avenue, with its characteristic paving that simulates the movement of ocean waves, is one of the most iconic of the city and is located next to the Alicante Marina, one of the city’s most popular spots, full of restaurants and coffee shops and also featuring a famous casino.

Car itinerary in Alicante

After touring the city, you will want to relax and enjoy the sun and the sea. The coastline in the province of Alicante extends for 244 km, which is ideal if you would like to go beach hopping.

Car itinerary through the surroundings

If, on the other hand, what you need is to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, then you can take a trip off the beaten path to discover some of the most beautiful and peaceful villages, both inland and on the Mediterranean coast: 

  • Altea, with its picturesque old town of cobbled streets and white facades. 

  • Guadalest, one of the most beautiful villages in the Valencian Community, known for its castle and prison. 

  • Denia, where unwinding and losing yourself in the Natural Park of Montgó or the marine reserve of San Antonio is a great plan for travel with the family. 

  • Calpe, for the more adventurous, where you can visit the famous landmark of the Costa Blanca, the Peñon de Ifach, which ascends to a height of 332 meters. 

  • Xátiva, where you can visit the impressive castle that belonged to the Borja family, one of the most illustrious families of the Renaissance. 

  • Elche, a stone's throw from Alicante, where you can tour the largest palm grove in Europe, with more than 200,000 palm trees.

Car itinerary along the beaches and coves of Alicante

Another indispensable route when touring Alicante by car is a scenic itinerary passing along the most emblematic beaches and coves of the Mediterranean coast.

  • Granadella cove in Jávea (Xàbia), one of the last unspoiled areas on the coast of Alicante. 

  • Tabarca Island, to spend just one day surrounded by nature and the sea, in all its splendor 

  • Albir beach in Alfàs del Pi, with its well-known Walk of Fame that honors all the winners of the prestigious international film festival of Alfàs del Pi. 

  • Muchavista beach in El Campello, bustling with lively restaurants, rice joints and cafés serving “horchata”, a sweetened plant milk and nut beverage beloved in Valencia,... 

Car itinerary through the protected natural parks of the province of Alicante

If the beach is not your thing, or if you also enjoy nature, then a few kilometers from the capital you can take your car to visit some of the most impressive natural spots in the region, real delights for hiking lovers: 

  • Serra Mariola Natural Park, with trails alongside important aquifers, fountains and mineral water springs. 

  • Font Roja Natural Park, between Alcoi and Ibi, with more than 2000 protected hectares of holm oaks and gall oaks, inhabited by wild boars, badgers and weasels. 

  • Montgó Natural Park, between Denia and Jávea, visit its breathtaking cliffs or stroll quietly through its lush forests. 

Fine cuisine in Alicante

Although the regional cuisine of Alicante is best known for its rice and seafood, in some of the surrounding villages you will be able to find a great variety of culinary specialties, with influences from La Mancha and Murcia, perfect to get your strength back and continue your on your road trip through the province.
