Alicante is a sunny heaven along the Mediterranean and every year millions of people come here to get some much desirable ‘vitamin-sea’. The city is also a dream destination for all the shopaholics who want to find something unique and exotic.

You will find a large variety in its shopping arena, be it a local market or a high-end swanky shopping mall you will get it all. The streets of the Explanada promenade have many little handicrafts, antique and curiosity shops where you will find many interesting items for your collection. These streets are beautifully decorated and are also seen as a popular tourist attraction.   

The city also has many other famous shopping streets like the Avenida Alfonso X el Sabio, Avenida Maisonnave, etc, and also some other small charming streets surrounding them. The Calle San Francisco is loved by the children as it has playgrounds, massive mushrooms, snails and many other kiddie delights. This street also has many shopping and food outlets which have to be explored at least once by every tourist.

However, if you want to discover the local produce in and around the city then you must head to the central market in Avenida Alfonso el Sabio, where you will find vegetables, fruits, fishes and also fresh meats. Apart from farm produce you will also find a large selection of homemade foodstuffs here.

The city also boasts of a variety of shopping malls like the El Corte Ingles, Centrol Comercial Panoramis, Centrol Comercial Puerta de Alicante and many more where you can shop for the latest designer brands.  

On a closing note we would also like to add that even in present times many shops in Spain are closed during the ‘siesta time’, so plan your shopping trip accordingly.
