  • BEWARE OF THE SUN. Do not forget to put ample amount of sunscreen if you don’t want to end up looking like a lobster. Use a sunscreen or wear protective clothing before hitting the beach and always remember to shower while leaving.
  • If you are travelling by tram keep in mind that the trams don’t always run 24/7, they stop operating on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 11.30pm.
  • Many restaurants in Alicante are closed between 4-9pm for siesta and don’t open before 9 pm for dinner, so keep this in mind while planning your dinner schedule.

  • At nights try not to walk alone on the darkened streets as muggers and pick-pocketers roam the alley.
  • Do not carry all of your important objects- passports, credit cards, money, etc - in one pocket it is better to carry around a copy of your passport while leaving the original behind in your hotel.
  • Be wise don't wave around enormous stacks of cash.
