Children in Alicante

We will be moving from USA to Alicante with our children. Where is a good family town with international schools close by and apartments to rent on the sea? We would like to meet families with children in safe environment. Our children sail and play golf. This is new to us and any help is much appreciated.

Hello Phoenixmom and welcome to!

You should take a look at our participative guide life in Spain, there may be articles which will be helpful to you.

For the accommodation, you should post an advert in the Alicante classifieds.

I hope that other members will advise you too.


The European School is in Playa de San Juan a suburb of Alicante city with a good tram system.  They teach in Spanish, English, French or German you can look for rentals and sales in English on the idealista web site.  There are beach front apartments and large town houses overlooking the golf course just a 10 minute drive from the beach, there's a sailing club at the Albufreta beach which is also a 10 minute drive from the school.
The other "English School" is run by Kings Collage and is closer to the airport.  The tram doesn't run that side of the city and there isn't much housing around there so you would need to drive.  I understand that there are other 'English Schools', one in Mutxamel and one towards Benidorm but I don't know those areas.
Good luck with your move.

I hope this helps!



Sandy, I will be moving in Sept and can meet up :)

Have you been successful contacting King's college? We are looking to relocate to Alicante from Madrid in September and am trying to reach them and ask if they have a place for my seven year old daughter, for year 3.  I guess they are still closed for summer holiday period.
