Perfect late season break

In winter months, when flight destination choices from Scotland plummet, Alicante proved an excellent choice. Although other parts of Spain had much more extreme weather, during our 3 day visit, we were lucky. The wind was just a little strong at times.

Just in time for Volvo round the world yacht race.

We took the bus, from the airport, right into the centre. When staying in a budget hotel (on this trip Etap) and travelling light, it's always better to visit tourist information, buy multi ride travel tickets and have a meal before making your way there.
We found ourselves just in time to see the start of the Volvo round the world yacht race.
