As a lively resort on the beautiful Costa Blanca, Alicante's main industry is tourism — hospitality, bars, restaurants, activities, and excursions all targeted at tourists provide reliable seasonal income. Public administration also plays an important role with the EU's Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market providing employment to a large number of workers living in and around Alicante. There is a large university to the north with around 27,000 students where expats with the right experience may find a path into the job market. With all the trappings of a popular tourist destination, from parties and theme nights at local bars, to watersports, nature excursions, fishing, or simply enjoying the pleasant climate while relaxing on one the many sandy beaches, expats are able to take full advantage of the huge selection of activities available.
With InterNations you are warmly invited to attend our regular events where you can meet fellow expats already in Alicante and start making new friends in person. We understand that it's difficult to meet people in a new city and so we encourage you to come along and meet fellow global minds to socialize, network, and have fun. Our members hail from all over the world and you are part of our talented community. Don't forget to also check out our InterNations Groups where you can find like-minded expats to meet up with and share you interests in cinema, culture, sports, and quiz nights.
