Overview of Costa Blanca

Mile upon mile of pristine sandy beaches, lapped with turquoise water. Action-packed activities from jetskiing to white-knuckle roller coasters. Chic towns and lively resorts where you can dance until the sun comes up. Holidays to Costa Blanca are all about fun and variety. The popular resort of Benidorm embodies this diversity.

Things to do in Costa Blanca

If you’re staying at Princesa Hotel, your first stop is Benidorm’s old town. With its winding streets and blue-domed churches, it still maintains its traditional charm. Stop for a drink in the outdoor bars or browse for souvenirs at the weekly flea market. In the evening, head down ‘Tapas Alley’ for an authentic Spanish dining and drinking experience. Levante Beach is Benidorm’s most popular spot for swimming and sunbathing. There’s also lots of opportunity to try out some water sports, and there’s an inflatable playground in the water kids will love. Benidorm embodies the playful spirit of Costa Blanca. There are lots of different ways to enjoy yourself, whether you’re travelling with children or a group of mates.


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.
