You can meet Johan (founder of A.net), he lives close by in Althea (from what I know). I've been to Alicante and Althea (la vecha) quite a few times and it was always very cool!

A strange choice for a first time visitor but depending on your priorities it might not be a bad decission at all

After the altercations me and him got into I doubt he'd want to meet me

Patrick, your family has a place in Spain, Malaga, right? I remember trying to set a meet up with you years ago when I was supposed to go to AGP.

And that's sort of our m-o. We like to travel to "not the norm" places. When we went to Australia we went to Brisbane and Cairns. Avoided Sydney outright. When I tell Aussies that, they laugh and say "interesting choices."

In any case, make sure you visit Valencia at least as a day trip. If you have the slightest interest in architecture Calatrava's new buildings as well as the different roman, medieval, baroque and art-nouveau buildings will surely interest you, all with a cold glass of orxata with fartons

Calpe is another place with great beaches and nightlife... and do not wonder when you see flamingos there, they are for real (I still have a picture that shows me in Calpe with a can of beer in between a flock of flamingos).
|Quoting Asturias (Reply 12):|
There isn't much to see in Alicante if you want to spend your time in museums and parks. Culturally it is rather poor, and if you need to be entertained to be happy it isn't all that great (however if you can entertain yourself, as in enjoying the good life, walking on sandy beaches and like to try the local food, then no problems!) Also, like in most of Spain, all movies and TV are in Spanish, so perhaps not the best place to go to the movies unless you speak fluent Spanish.
Alicante is an ugly city, for the most part. Excepting the old part (el Barrio) most of the city was built in the 50s and 60s and it shows. The main beach can be very dirty as well during peak hours, but it is cleaned every day. However the beach 15 minutes north is large and clean.
