With a name that translates to 'White Coast', and with some 170 beaches to pick from, you could be forgiven for thinking Costa Blanca holidays are all about the seaside. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find plenty to entertain you beyond its miles of sandy shores. Benidorm has thrilling theme parks, and Alicante is packed with bars and clubs, while old fishing towns Xàbia (Jávea) and Altea are all charm, with delightfully winding streets, whitewashed buildings and cute restaurants.
When it does come to beaches, given the sheer number of them on the Costa Blanca, you’re certainly spoilt for choice with plenty of places to roll out your towel. From family-friendly coves, unspoilt sands, and the protected sea beds of Dénia, to the more lively, party-filled beaches of Benidorm, there’s something to please everyone.
Holidays to the Costa Blanca are perfect for adventurous travellers, too. Try a range of water sports, such as kayaking or paddleboarding, take a hike in the rugged mountains of Serra Gelada, or even climb its limestone crags. Whether you’re here for a relaxed family break, to bar-hop and boogie with friends, or to bask in the pleasant climate, the Costa Blanca is a winning holiday destination.
