“Pristine beauty,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

The San Juan beach in Alicante (or even the whole city) would often miss out on traveler's map owing to other commercially publicized locations as Benidorm etc., but trust me very few beach towns in whole of Spain will come as close to the beauty called 'Alicante'.
Put yourself up in a hotel/resort in the San Juan beach area and enjoy heaven in true sense. We went around July and the weather was about perfect. The calmness, serenity and the pristine beauty of the sand will soon rub on you and you will want to be there forever.
Don't forget the evening walks, nice beach side restaurants and drinks parties...all just adds to the effect :)
I will forever be in love with this place.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

Absolutely lovely beach. There is an abundance of restaurants to eat at, as well as great sports to play on the beach. When the sun starts to go down, everybody ventures over to some of the bars on the beach, which are superb. I would recommend going.

“Best place for a day trip or sunbath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

1. How to go there? From Alicante take Bus 21/22 or Tram (best way by bus) takes about 20min, directly to Playa de San Juan.
2. Beach clean beach surrounded by several shops and restaurants. Water is cleaner than Alicante beach.
3. For 12Euro you can rent two lounger plus an umbrella until 7pm. For sunbathing just for few hours you can rent also for cheaper price, note there are boards along the beach with the Information.

“great beach for families.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Spendind 2 weeks in apartment 1 block away from beach, great beach, city lifesaving service, beach sports installations, always clean with light color sand and shallow waterfront, great for children. In late August always some waves, but not disturbing. great location overall.

“One of the best beaches in Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

I have visited many beaches in Costa del Sol, Costa Brava and Costa Blanca and it's one of the best. It's very long and wide with fine, light colour sand and some palm trees planted to shed shadow. if you don't have your own beach umbrella. The water has a beautiful turquoise colour and it's shallow so can easily see the bottom and go very far away from the shore. And it's warm, much warmer that in all the beaches in the southern Spain that I've got to know. There is a very nice promenade along it, plenty of palm trees and restaurants, pubs and ice cream shops. The only disadvantage is the luck of showers, there are taps only to rinse the sand from your feet.
