Discover the coastal beauty of Alicante with a motorhome rental
Alicante is a gorgeous city on the southeastern coast of Spain. Much like Bilbao, Alicante is a port city boasting expansive public beaches and surprising many tourists with a thriving nightlife. But the cherry on top is Alicante’s unassuming nature. Even though it is filled with cultural sites, delicious restaurants and an alluring cityscape, it hasn’t been infiltrated with tourist traps, or an overwhelming amount of yearly visitors. So pick up a campervan rental in Alicante and visit while it’s still a secret!
Campervan rental pick-up in Alicante
Alicante Airport will be your main pick-up destination for campervan rentals. Both Anywhere Campers and Euromotorhome Rental will meet you at the airport to run you through the pick-up procedure. In the case of Anywhere Campers, they can also meet you at a major train station. In both these cases, you will be able to arrive, then get started on your motorhome holiday in Alicante, Spain!

Camping tips for your Alicante trip
Get the most out of your motor home rental from GoSee with these important travel and camping tips:
- Check the road signs and drive within the speed limits. Currently, residential roads cap at either 30 or 50km per hour, so keep an eye out.
- See if your campsite has a curfew so that you aren’t locked out or can’t set up after hours.
- Keep a phone with an internet connection handy—you may need to translate menus and conversations with a lack of English signage around.
- Many shops stay open until much later than in other countries because of the nation’s midday napping hours.
- Make sure you know when public transport ends for the night.
- Stay vigilant of your belongings—crime is low in Spain, but petty theft is fairly common in Alicante.
Short road trip options from Alicante
With your campervan rental, you can visit neighboring cities in unrivaled comfort. Nearby cities Benidorm and Murcia can be reached within an hour of driving, while the more exciting Valencia is around 2 hours away.
More adventurous road trippers can set their course for Madrid in their campervan hire, which is roughly a 4-hour drive, or Barcelona, which can take between 5-6 hours.
Things to See and Do in Alicante
While travelling around Málaga in your motorhome may mean seeing pristine beaches, Alicante rivals this with its own selection of expansive beaches while boasting many interesting cultural sites, museums, churches, and tapas bars and restaurants.
Here are just a few of our top recommendations for your RV adventure in Alicante, Spain:
Eat, drink, and be merry
Throw a stone in any direction and it’s sure to stroke one of Alicante’s many delicious tapas bars, dance clubs, Irish pubs or restaurants—especially in the downtown area of ‘el Barrio’.
Surprisingly though, there are a couple of other non-alcoholic drinks you should know about when you’re visiting Alicante…
Alicante has a rich community of tea lovers, and it’s taken pretty seriously here. Just check out Teteria Waslala to get an example. With 120 tea varieties on offer, both imported and local, you could be sipping tea till the sun rises again.
Well known in Mexico, the local Horchata is a dairy-free milk made from tiger nuts. It’s deliciously refreshing and sweet, and can be found in many places across the city/ciudad.
We recommend visiting the top-rated Horchatéria Azul for a gourmet horchata and ice cream experience, or Peret, a small kiosk where you can watch horchata being made fresh in front of your eyes.
Take in the local history
With a rich tale of inhabitants and conquerors ranging from the Moors to the Muslim Ummayad, and even seafaring pirates, traces of fascinating history can be found throughout Alicante.
Your first stop for your motorhome hire Alicante road trip should be at the stunning Castle of Santa Barbara. Rooted in medieval Arab architecture, this towering castle overlooks the city with gorgeous views of the surrounding area.
Next, visit the Archaeological Museum which is filled with artifacts and exhibitions covering history spanning as far back as pre-Roman times, to the more short-lived era where Muslim, Christian, and Jewish people coexisted together.
Fill your heart with gladness as you take your Alicante campervan hire to Basilica of Santa María, the oldest and most eye-catching church in the city, dating back to the 1300’s.
After these, you can make your way to the old town and unwind in Casco Antiguo over some coffee in the pristine and character-filled streets.
Sunbathe on the many beaches
With plenty of beaches in the area, there’s no reason you can’t head home after your trip to Alicante slightly more golden and glowing. We recommend checking out Postiguet Beach first, as it’s right next to the old town of Casco Antiguo, and is one of the nicer beaches in the area.
But with your campervan rent, you can also travel to the outskirts of the ciudad where many beaches remain untouched, and much quieter all year round. For example, to the south of Alicante is Saladar Beach, a majestic long sweep of inviting golden sand. If you want to explore north in your camper hire, you’ll find Playa de la Albufereta, known as the harbor for the Roman settlement of Lucentum once upon a time.
