visit Alicante in December

6 reasons why you should visit Alicante in December

Why you should visit Alicante in December? Because you can eat, drink, explore, and enjoy the city without having to worry about the cold. It’s a great destination for people of all ages and with a perfect temperature all year round.

  1.     The weather

Of course, in winter the weather is always a bit riskier, but in Alicante, it can surely be described as T-shirt weather. The average winter temperature is 16 degrees and you can expect 6 hours of sunshine every day. It’s comfortable to sit outside without a jacket or coat. However, it can be more chilly when the sun goes down. If you want to escape from the cold and grey skies, then you should surely visit Alicante in December!

Even in December, you can enjoy a SUP tour without a wetsuit

  1.     Less crowded beaches

Even in the Winter, you can have a little work on your tan while relaxing at the local beaches. If you prefer a peaceful day at the beach or stroll along the shore, then head for beaches like Playa de San Juan, Playa del Postiguet or Playa de la Albufereta.

  1.     Stroll around the city center

Nearly all of the bars and restaurants around the town hall area and the Ramblas will be open, but the town can feel quiet in the evenings during the week, though it is still very busy at the weekends. Even if you don’t like shopping, it is worth it to visit the old town. From the Old Town, you can pop into the beautiful blue-domed San Nicolás cathedral and the covered market Mercado Central.

  1.    Explore the areas around Alicante

Autumn and winter are an ideal time for exploring the area such as going down to La Manga or the Roman ruins in Cartegena, or else up to Calpe and beyond. You can also enjoy a morning stroll on the beach of Villajovosa followed by lunch outdoors at a beachfront cafe in Benidorm, before driving up to Guadalest in the mountains in the afternoon.

  1.     Tabarca Island

It is possible to take a 15-minute ferry trip from the harbor of Santa Pola to the mile-long island of Tabarca. Even in winter, the waters around Alicante are (just) warm enough for a swim. We really recommend doing some snorkeling in the pristine waters of the marine reserve. At Tabarca Island a mysterious world awaits with water temperatures varying from around 14 degrees in the winter to about 24 degrees in the summer.

Tip: Rent a wetsuit if the waters around Alicante are a bit too cold for you. That way you can enjoy the sea to the fullest, even in winter.
