Discover the secrets of Santa Bárbara Castle
Take the lift up to the Castle, visit the MUSA Museum and its exhibition rooms. Children can also take part in the many activities organised for them there. The Ereta Park, located next to the Castle, is a perfect place for your children to play and enjoy Alicante.
Conquer the Island of Tabarca
The youngest members of your family are bound to love the idea of climbing aboard a boat to be whisked away to a nearby island.
Alicante’s beaches are perfect for children, not only for swimming and playing on the sand, but also for learning how to surf or any number of other water activities.
Tourist Bus Turibus
The Turibus is perfect if you’re short on time to enjoy Alicante. The tourist bus stops at the most emblematic places of the city.
Theme Parks in the province
The province of Alicante is home to several theme parks designed especially for kids, big and small! These are just some of the options available:
Nativity Scene Museum
The Nativity Museum houses an admirable collection of nativity scenes for children to discover, as Alicante is famous for its tradition of nativity scene manufacturing. A must-see if you’re travelling with children and you love Christmas. Free admission.
Provincial Archaeological Museum MARQ
An exceptionally educational museum which organises activities for children all year round, as well as specially designed guided tours for children at certain times of the year.
Fogueres Festival Museum
If cartoons were to come to life, they would definitely look something like the “ninots indultats”(the statues saved from the bonfires), that fascinate children who come to visit this museum dedicated to Alicante’s most important festivals “Les Fogueres de Sant Joan”. Free admission.
The Ocean Race Museum
The Ocean Race Museum is dedicated to the most important sailing competition in the world. In this great museum, children can learn, have fun and experience a whole sea of sensations. Free admission.
