Spain’s culinary tradition is as rich in culture as it is in flavor. From savory seafood to sugary sweets, the streets of Alicante offer plenty of options for travelers looking to treat their taste buds. Here are a few foods and activities you won't want to miss.
 
Must-Try Dishes
Paella, often considered Spain’s signature dish, is made from a special grain of rice grown in the Costa Blanca and Valencia regions, making it a must for any Alicante visitor. The city’s position on the coast means seafood is fresh and plentiful, so don’t miss out on fish dishes like succulent red Denia prawns, salazones (salted fish), and esgarrat (grilled red peppers with cured cod and olive oil).
 
If it’s sweets you’re craving, sample some turron, an almond-and-honey nougat traditionally eaten around the holidays or folded into ice cream, or bunuelo, deep-fried fritters often served with powdered sugar and dipped in thick hot chocolate.
 
Must-Do Experiences
  • Lace up your walking shoes for a guided gourmet food tour of Old Town while sampling regional specialities and locally made wines.
  • Zip around Alicante on a Segway, taking in the historical sites and treating your taste buds to some of the city’s best tapas.
  • Sit down for a traditional paella lunch overlooking the picturesque Alicante port.
  • Indulge your senses with a live flamenco show and tapas dinner.
