Alicante city center is on walking distance from your cruise ship. The local Marina, the beach and The Esplanada de Espana, with its bars and restaurants are all within walking range of the docking area. Also The Castillo de Santa Barbara can be reached on foot, but be aware of the steep hill! When you exit your ship, just walk along the pier towards the local Marina. Soon you find the sandy beach on your right side. From Plaza Puerte del Mar, where is also a Tourist Office, you have easy access to the Alicante city center. Walking there will take 20-30 minutes.
