Alicante Explanada, a fascinating seafront promenade is the continuation of Canalejas Park. It is situated between the old headquarter building of the University of Alicante and Hotel Meliá, but usually approached from Rambla Avenue and the Old Town.
Explanada is our favorite walkway, always full of people. Its pavement is a long mosaic composed of more than six millions of small tiles forming a repeating three-colored geometric pattern imitating sea waves. Along Alicante Explanada, there are several rows of palm trees separating its pathways. That is the reason why we usually refer to this promenade as one of Alicante parks.
Its numerous restaurants and pizzerias are ideal places to have dinner. During daytime, you can refresh yourself taking a juice or an ice cream, or perhaps having a fast snack in Subway, McDonald’s and in Turkish or Chinese restaurants. You can also entertain yourself watching the performances of the street artists or buy some typical souvenirs in one of the stands.
