Things to do with kids in Costa Blanca

Famed for its pristine, golden coastline and idyllic temperatures, Costa Blanca has long been a favourite for those seeking some respite from the sporadic British summers.

With resorts like Benidorm, Denia and Moraira all boasting Blue Flag beaches, it's a real hit with families too. Away from the welcoming waters, the White Coast is jam-packed with fun and exciting places to explore from mountain top villages to theme parks.

Make them scream

Create lots of thrilling memories at this fun-filled theme park, less than a 10-minute drive from the centre of Benidorm.

Built around the themes of ancient Greece, Egypt and Rome, bundle the whole family into a rubber bumper boat and spin your way down the Rapids of Argos or brave the heights of The Flight of the Phoenix and drop 54 metres in three seconds.

Whether your little ones are adrenaline junkies or prefer the gentle laps of a merry-go-round, you'll find plenty of rides and fantastic themed shows for the whole family.

Escape to a magical island

Take the kids on a swashbuckling adventure to the tiny island of Tabarca, a protected marine reserve located 18 kilometres off the coast from Alicante.

From Benidorm the sailing averages just over an hour each way with plenty of boats boasting glass bottoms enabling your little sailors to spot some exciting marinelife along the way.

As the smallest inhabited island in Spain, its length can be traversed in around 15 minutes and you'll find quaint streets lined with authentic Spanish restaurants and tavernas in the centre backed by beautiful countryside.

Make a splash

Aqua Natura Waterpark, a 10-minute drive from the centre of Benidorm, is an enormous park boasting an array of impressive slides. Dare to brave La Cresta and experience the sensation of zero gravity, disappear into the Black Hole or grab a three person rubber ring and make for the Aqua Snake.

Younger adventure seekers will love splashing around the kids' zone, complete with pirate ship. There's even a mermaid school – where little ones can learn to swim with a monofin – and interactive sea lion experiences. This is a day out the whole family will be sure to remember.

Aqualandia Waterpark is another extensive park home to 15 thrilling slides including Europe's highest standing slide and the world's highest capsule slide. It's also just a 10-minute drive away. Be sure to look out for discount vouchers in local shops and enjoy all the fun at a fraction of the cost.

Go back in time

Take the kids to see the toys their grandparents used to play with at this charming toy museum located in the former train station in Denia.

Once regarded as the centre of the toymaking industry, the small collection features toys produced in Denia from the early 20th century through to the 1960s from wooden dolls houses to metal sit-on cars.

Entrance to this wonderful museum is free and you'll find it open every day of the week from 10am-1pm and 4pm-8pm.

Escape the sun

Take a break from the midday sun and explore the fascinating cave systems surrounding Costa Blanca for an unforgettable day out.

A 40-minute drive north of Benidorm, the prehistoric Las Calaveras Cave also known as the Skull Cave, is a vast natural cavity extending over 300 metres underground full of stalactites and stalagmites more than 50 metres high.

Towards the end of the route, discover the beautiful underground lake, Toll Blau which was used during the Arab reign to irrigate the crops.

In the town of Busot, just over an hour's drive from the coast, explore the Cuevas de Canelobre, the deepest and longest cave system in Spain.

This ancient cave located 700 metres high on the mountain Cabezon de Oro has been likened to a Gothic cathedral and boasting such fantastic acoustics, regular concerts are held in the main hall.

Once you've finished exploring, walk to the top of the mountain for breathtaking views or head into town and sample some delicious cuisine in one of the many nearby restaurants.
