Activities in Alicante Meeting Port

Discover the great variety of activities we have ready for you

From the 28th to the 31st of March, Alicante will become the main focus of sport, leisure, culture and education thanks to Alicante Puerto de Encuentro.

During these four days, the Port of Alicante’s Race Village will offer a wide variety of activities paying homage to the sea and the city as the starting port for the World Sailing Tour.

The fundamental pillars of Alicante Puerto de Encuentro are social values. Solidarity, equality, sportsmanship and sustainability stand out in the activities on offer, which both adults and children will be able to enjoy by the Mediterranean Sea. Multiculturalism will be so present on a daily basis with a cultural parade, in which we will bring China to Alicante, discover the essence of African dances, or go into Arab and Oriental customs and dance to Brazilian rhythms.

From team and urban sports to workshops, shows, exhibitions, magic, music, storytelling and theatre, the Village will be filled with free options for all audiences.
