Be a beach bum

You could come to Costa Blanca for years and still never sample all of the beaches that run for 200 kilometres along this beautiful piece of coastline. Most of them have Blue Flag status for cleanliness and top facilities, which makes them tourist friendly.

Benidorm’s six kilometres of sand includes Levante beach, which has the most to do for all the family. The shore slopes gently for anyone who just wants a paddle, while further out there are swinging bridges, diving boards, rafts and a wet playground, as well as a whole array of watersports should you fancy a go. To the west, Poniente Beach is one of the biggest and has a new promenade. Despite their size, both of these areas get very busy so you might want to slip off to Malpas beach by the harbour for some quiet time.

The smaller resort of Denia is the place to go for your very own piece of beach as there are 20 kilometres to go around. They range from the bays of Les Rotes beach, which backs on to Montgo nature reserve, to urban beaches with all the trimmings like Les Marines. Meanwhile, families frequent the two Blue Flag curving beaches of Moraira for their sheltered nature with good facilities. Choose from our wide range of cheap holidays, luxury resorts and All Inclusive hotels in Costa Blanca.

Resorts

Benidorm

Benidorm knows how to keep you entertained on holiday. Whether it's whizzing down waterslides during the day or partying long into the night, you'll never be short of something to do here. The resort has a very British flavour so you'll find it just as easy to get your favourite beer or food as you will to try some tasty new Spanish treats, whether you're on an All Inclusive Benidorm trip or travelling Self Catering.

Denia

One not to be missed during holidays to Costa Blanca, the charming and cosmopolitan town of Denia is located midway between Alicante and Valencia. It was once the epicentre of the region's booming raisin industry, but has become a popular tourist destination in the past 50 years. Although it's still not one of the major meccas on the Costa Blanca, it does command its own unique attractions and appeal.

Moraira

Perched between the rolling mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, Moraira is an idyllic fishing village that has evolved into a tourist destination over recent years. In contrast to many of the popular holiday hotspots dotted along Spain's coast, Moraira has done an excellent job of retaining its rustic charm. It has a local population of just 9,000 people, but during the high summer season this figure can swell to as much as four times that with the influx of tourists from Europe and overseas. Wherever you're staying, holidays to Costa Blanca aren't complete without a visit here.

Albir

Spain is one of the top holiday destinations for those looking for warm sun, blue sea and soft sand. Relaxing on sandy beaches under bright skies is one of the most enjoyable things to do during holidays to Costa Blanca. Lining the coast are numerous resorts that offer a range of facilities and fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. Experience a holiday in Albir on the Costa Blanca and you'll get to totally unwind in a laid-back resort town. You're also in a great position to take things up a notch with lively Benidorm just a short distance away.

Altea

Millions of tourists enjoy holidays to Costa Blanca every year. This stunning region is renowned for its beautiful beaches, and lively resorts, such as Benidorm. But it has a quieter side, too. Altea holidays are perfect for anyone who loves Costa Blanca's beaches, but would prefer to stay in a quiet town instead of a busy coastal resort. You'll love exploring this quaint, historic town perched on the beautiful beach.

Calpe

Holidays to Costa Blanca have always been popular, and holidays to Calpe, Spain's most intriguing seaside resort, are particular favourites. For a start, there's the climate – Calpe has around 325 sunny days a year. Then there's the seven miles of beaches. When you add the town's millennia-worth of archaeological and architectural attractions into the mix, it's easy to see why Calpe holidays are so popular.

Guardamar Del Segura

Holidays to Costa Blanca are awesome for families and adventurers, and a natural choice for nature lovers. Guardamar Del Segura holidays offer the perfect base for people who want a quieter place to stay while still being able to explore the Costa Blanca. Guardamar Del Segura is situated between two of Costa Blanca's heavyweights, Alicante and Torrevieja, so you'll never be short of things to do or see. The area has some of the best beaches around, with golden sands and dunes fringed by eucalyptus and pine forests, warm water and sunshine. Throw in a quintessential Spanish feel, and you've got the ideal holiday destination.

Javea

Combine secluded sandy coves with calm, translucent waters and you've got an idea of what Javea holidays are all about. Add majestic mountainous views, delicious tapas and sunny weather, and it's the recipe for a perfect holiday. Holidays to Costa Blanca always go down well, but holidays in Javea take things to the next level. Javea is a port town that sits in the foothills of Montgo Mountain. Close to Valencia and Alicante, which has helped increase its popularity with holiday-makers, its relaxed pace of life revolves around a Medieval church, while restaurants and bars overlook charming cobbled streets.

Playa de San Juan

Holidays to Costa Blanca often revolve around the beach but Playa De San Juan is the ultimate, with its soft, white sands. With a beach that stretches out for eight kilometres, on holidays to Playa De San Juan there's not much chance of getting lost among crowded coastlines or missing out on a good spot. When you're not swimming or sunbathing, take advantage of the restaurants and bars that line the promenade. From paella and fresh seafood to cocktails and local wines, it's a gastronomical treat. The beach isn't the only activity in Playa De San Juan holidays though. You're 15 minutes away from Alicante, you can sail over to Tabarca Island, or you can make the most all of the watersports on offer here.

Torrevieja

Everything about Torrevieja holidays is easy. Just a short drive from Alicante airport, and with a wide range of restaurants, the town is loved by Brits and Spanish families alike who head to the region for a fun getaway. Unlike some areas, there aren't any huge skyscrapers or low-quality hotels. Torrevieja is all about comfort, class and traditional Spanish hospitality. Holidays to Costa Blanca naturally revolve around the gorgeous beaches – but in Torrevieja, you've got a few unique additions, like the natural saltwater lakes.

Nightlife

After all that lounging on the beach, you’ll have plenty of energy to burn in the bars and clubs come night time. Of course Benidorm is the best place to really let off some steam and the ways to do it range from foam parties, outdoor and indoor pool parties and dance gardens to rock shows, cabaret and karaoke. So whether you fancy a swift pint in an Irish bar or dancing until 8am in one of the Ibiza style clubs – El Divino or Space for example – you can do it here.

Some nights you’ll just want to chill out though, and while there’s a little bit of everything in Benidorm, it’s the smaller resorts that allow you to sit back in your chair and watch the world go by. In Moraira there are flamenco guitarists to listen to on Plaza de la Iglesia or you could try chilled out bars and jazz joints on Denia’s Calle La Mar.

Even if you’re on an All Inclusive Costa Blanca trip, make sure you venture out from your hotel at least once to experience live music and great cocktails on the white sand coast.

Slides and rides

You won’t be short of something to do with your friends and family during the day as there is an exciting range of fun parks all around Benidorm. If you’re staying in the town then Aqualand waterpark and Mundomar animal park are within walking distance on the eastern edge of Benidorm.

A little further out of town are Terra Mitica theme park and more family-oriented, pirate-themed Iberia Park. Terra Natura wildlife park and its neighbouring water park are also in this area, but all are easily accessed by regular buses which will take you there directly. As many of the parks are run by the same companies you can get combined tickets to visit on different days which will save you some money.

Enjoy the scenery

Costa Blanca is flanked on one side by its picturesque coast and on the other by magnificent mountains which are ripe for hiking. Or you may prefer to stroll through the valleys full of orange, lemon and almond groves.

The Algar waterfalls are around a 15-minute drive from both Benidorm and Moraira. Here you can explore the 1.5-kilometre walkway that crosses the River Algar and rewards visitors with amazing views over the falls.

Other places of interest around the area are the city of Alicante, with its hilltop castle and chic boutiques, and Valencia, which has ultra-modern architecture and an oceanographic aquarium.

Hit the shops

Costa Blanca is certainly not short of shops. Benidorm and Alicante are where you’ll find the most designer boutiques. Although, Denia’s tree-lined Carrer Marques de Campo also has a good selection alongside high street names such as Mango and Zara. There are also malls brimming with all sorts of shops, including Benidorm’s three-floor La Marina centre.

If you’re looking to hunt out a bargain and get a feel for local life, make sure you head to one of the markets that are hosted weekly. Moraira’s Friday morning street market is one of the biggest in the area and sells all types of food, clothing, soft furnishings and household goods for you to take back home with you. Visit one of Benidorm’s three markets, either on the weekend or a Wednesday. One which is a flea market, one more for clothes and gifts and the third selling local fruit and vegetables, crafts and other authentic Spanish products.
