In Alicante, you can pay to park on the street. However, this is not the best solution: you are limited to 2 hours’ parking, and even to just one hour in the residential zone (Orange zone).

Paid parking spaces are indicated by blue lines. You can park there from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Prices for blue zone parking are 0.60 cents for the first hour and €1.80 for the second. After that, you’ll have to move your car.

If you don’t want to pay for parking in Alicante, a second option is to park your car outside the paid parking zones, then take public transport into the city center. Free spaces are indicated by white lines. However, these free spaces are rare, especially when they are close to the city center. They are well known and highly prized by locals, who occupy them first thing in the morning.

Fortunately, there are better solutions for parking in Alicante: public pay parking lots.

If you want to park as close to the center of Alicante as possible, without risking scratches to the bodywork or theft, the best solution is to choose a public pay parking lot. Prices for paid parking in Alicante are reasonable. You pay by the minute: expect to pay between €1 and €2 per hour on average. What’s more, these parking lots are open 24 hours a day and are guarded.

Parking in the city center

We recommend avoiding the open parking lot at the Renfe station. This is the most expensive parking lot in Alicante. It’s located near the train station.

The cheapest parking lot is onAvenida Alfonso el Sabio. It’s an underground parking lot that occupies the entire area close to the avenue. However, due to its price and location, it is often fully booked during the day or in summer.

That’s why we recommend parking in Alicante’s two port parking lots. They are generally less busy in summer and winter. So you’re more likely to find a place to park. The first is a stone’s throw from theMelia hotel , and the second is close to the Panoramis shopping center on the other side of the harbor.

Finally, your hotel will often offer you a daily parking solution. Don’t hesitate to contact them for prices.

Parking in San Juan

If you want to get to San Juan beach, we recommend the Garden parking lot onAvenida Países Escandinavos. Secure and open 24 hours a day, it offers quick access to the beach.
