We went during the off season in late September. The weather was perfect and there weren't a ton of people. One thing you will notice though, is a lot of the peak season restaurants located on the beach are closed. Kind of a bummer, but not a huge disappointment. The beach is very clean, crystal clear water, and the waves and currents are really manageable. Since you're in Alicante, the prices of everything nearby are great as well. The area right along the beach might look rough, but don't be alarmed. Everyone was super friendly! My wife and I loved our time in Alicante and will definitely be back!

I could only recommend this beach. It is more quiet than many other beaches and there are not possibly so much services available but for sun bathing and swimming this is a perfect spot. Beach is clean and the sand is unbelievable soft. Cafes and restaurants are found near and you can easily reach the beach by tram.

Most people who fly into Alicante stay in the city or go onto Benidorm. San Juan is a lot quieter but the beach is amazing. While there was a lot of people around there was plenty of space on the beach to enjoy. A good selection of Bars and restaurants to choice from. If you fancy visiting to have a look, take the L4 tram to Avenue de Benidorm.

Fabulous, long beach just a 20 minute tram journey from Alicante centre. The sun beds were reasonable and ours had the advantage of a very friendly waiter who provided a bar service.
