Overview of Costa Blanca

Costa Blanca, meaning ‘white coast’, is famous for its beautiful white-sand beaches, but there’s more to this destination than meets the eye. Purely Mediterranean, its quaint Spanish villages, culture and warm weather make it a hotspot for UK holidaymakers. If food is your thing, you’ll be spoilt for choice with places to eat and drink, from restaurants and bars to cafes and tapas. For those looking for something more action-packed or cultural, holidays to Costa Blanca offer water sports, golf, museums and galleries galore. You’ll need at least two weeks to scratch the surface of this wonderful place.

Things to do in Costa Blanca

The most popular magnet for British holidaymakers, Benidorm is just a 15-minute walk away from Hotel Don Pancho. Known for its vast beaches and stay-up-late nightlife, it also offers beautiful cobbled streets and churches. Feeling hot? Take a dip and enjoy the peace in the stunning natural pools of the Algar Waterfalls in the beautiful Les Fonts de l’Algar Nature Reserve. Jump on a catamaran from Tabarca Island, once a haven for pirates, and enjoy a refreshing boat trip to explore the island. For chocolate lovers, head for the Valor Chocolate Museum where you can learn everything about this delicious treat – and you’ll be given plenty of free samples, too. Whether you’re looking to unwind or reveal your adventurous side, Costa Blanca offers something different. With its impressive climate – little rainfall and average year-round temperatures of 20°C, it’s no wonder people come back time and time again.

Resort Summary

The six kilometres of sand formed by Benidorm’s two main bays are a big part of its appeal. Closest to the town centre, and near to many All Inclusive Costa Blanca hotels and restaurants, is Levante beach, also known as Sunrise Beach.

If you just want a paddle then you’ll find the shores pleasingly shallow, while further out in the water is a playground for all ages. There are swinging bridges, diving boards and rafts, with any number of watersports beyond, from banana boats to jet skiing. There is even a cable-skiing station in the sea at this end of town – it’s a bit like water-skiing, but without the boat.

The other bay is Poniente Beach. It’s a big beach, with a long, pedestrianised promenade and a playground for children. You’ll find it slightly calmer than Levante, but there are still plenty of restaurants looking out to sea here. It’s worth taking the trip up to the viewing point in between the two bays, dubbed the ‘Balcon del Mediterraneo’ the balcony of the Mediterranean, for the astounding views.

There’s also the opportunity to wander through the old town, where you’ll find amazing views over the bays and an impressive range of shops and markets to explore. If you fancy going further afield, head out into Costa Blanca to explore the Mediterranean Sea, mountains and natural parks of this beautiful area.
