Two of Spain’s most highly recommended destinations for remote working are located in Alicante province. According to a newly updated ranking by the Spanish tourism board, Alicante city and Benidorm are ideal options for “workations”.
Both Alicante (“with its impressive Santa Bárbara castle”) and Benidorm are located on the beach and enjoy more than 300 days of sunshine a year, and they are also conveniently linked to other European countries through Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport.
In fact, noted the tourism board, Alicante has hosted the International Remote Working and Digital Nomad Conference. “It boasts an excellent fibre optic and 5G connectivity network and has carried out transformational technological projects such as Distrito Digital and Alicante Futura.
“Benidorm, meanwhile, provides free Wi-Fi along the promenades of its Poniente and Levante beaches and within its old town, and features bars and restaurants adapted to fit your working day, as well as a thriving digital nomad community.”
In general terms, Spain was described as a “different and totally safe place” for people wanting to change their life and work remotely, while enjoying the country’s renowned nature, beaches, culture, cuisine and climate.
“These locations have fantastic climates, are compatible with most of the world in terms of working hours, and can offer top-level infrastructure and direct connections with the main European cities. Wave goodbye to the stresses of your daily routine and look forward to getting to know Spain while you work.”
