Top places for remote working in Alicante

Alicante is renowned as the gateway to the beautiful sunshine shores of the Costa Blanca, however it’s not just a landing point, there is a lot more to the city than an arrival airport.  With a beautiful beach, a fascinating old town and the medieval Santa Barbara Castle; its port the home of the Ocean Race HQ; a lively and varied dining scene and transport links to all over Spain, it really is a great city base.  Read on to find out more about what the city has to offer remote workers or Digital Nomads living in Alicante.

The city is compact and can easily be explored on foot.  If you’re choosing to live here for a short period, there are plenty of quirky “barrios” (neighbourhoods) to discover. Depending on whether you want to be in the heart of it all, by the sea or in a quieter area of Alicante, you will never be too far away from anything.

Famous for its medieval Santa Barbara Castle which stands 180m above sea level and overlooks the city, this is worth a morning or afternoon hike to see the amazing views!  You can also take the elevator if you’re short on time or can’t do the hike.  The Ocean Yacht race has sailed into and out of Alicante Port a few times and really is a spectacle if you happen to be around during October.

Dining out

in the city is a feast for the senses. Tapas and menus del dia around Calle Castaños in the centre, traditional Alicantino cooking in established restaurants of the beautiful old town, seafood at the Port; and home to two one-star Michelins, a couple of bib gourmands and plenty of Michelin plates, Alicante is also a gourmet’s dining dream.

Explanada de España Alicante

The setting is enviable, sitting comfortably between the mountains and the Mediterranean sea, Alicante has a beguiling face.  Not many people know a lot about this city with many facets, and its opportunity for hiking in the morning and snorkelling in the afternoon without a long trip in between!

You can get there by air from almost anywhere in Europe; by train from Madrid and a tram that travels north and arrives from as far as Denia, by boat from Algeria or by private yacht and by bus from across Spain.
