Overview of Costa Blanca

If you haven’t been on holidays to Costa Blanca yet, you’re missing out. This gorgeous coastal region in Southern Spain has one of the sunniest climates in Europe, and it also boasts some stunning white-sand beaches. Costa Blanca caters to all sorts of holidaymakers and it’s a great spot for families, with water parks and playgrounds to amuse the kids. But there’s another side to the resort, with energetic Benidorm being renowned for its fantastic nightlife. If you want to check out everything Benidorm has to offer, a stay in Port Benidorm hotel comes highly recommended.

Things to do in Costa Blanca

If you’re staying in Port Benidorm, chances are you’ll spend a lot of time relaxing on Levante Beach, a curvy bay of golden sand. This is a great place to try out some water sports, while kids will love the inflatable playground in the water. While Benidorm is renowned for its British pubs and upbeat clubs, it also has a more traditional side in its old town. If you want a more authentic night out, head to ‘Tapas Alley’, which runs from Place de la Constitutio along Santo Domingo. You’ll be able to nibble on plates of patatas bravas, crispy calamari and serrano ham, washed down with ice-cold beer. If you want to travel further afield, a 4 x 4 safari comes highly recommended. You’ll head off the beaten track, up mountains and past white-washed villages, experiencing Costa Blanca’s untouched corners. A holiday in Costa Blanca will show you why this region’s so popular with tourists. You’ll love the long sun-drenched days and balmy nights you spend here.

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.
