A stone's throw from hugely popular tourism resorts and with its own international airport, Alicante is a no-brainer destination for groups looking for a wallet-friendly city break in the sun any time of the year. But this enjoyable corner of the Valencian Community really comes to life at the end of June for the San Juan celebrations, when locals and visitors alike spend the whole night partying in the city and on the beaches.
The 'Hogueres de San Juan' festivities welcome the start of the summer season with bonfires and fireworks throughout the city. The event sees satirical papier maché monuments installed on the biggest streets, ready to be burned on the main bonfire on the 'Nit del Foc' or Night of Fire on 23rd June. Such a sight has to be seen to believed, so book your group to Alicante today, for four days of fiery antics with a pinch of cultural tourism thrown in for good measure.
