There is a load to see and do in Costa Blanca Spain and picking out what to visit isn’t easy when you’ve got all that chilling to fit in. So here’s a guide to 5 great places and things to do in Alicante.
Include them on your next trip during your Costa Blanca holidays.
Benidorm Old Town
What’s not to love about Benidorm Old Town? There are bars and restaurants aplenty and tapas are available all over the place offering a tasty treat at an affordable price.
Get a feel for an authentic Spanish way of life by hitting Benidorm Old Town on one of the 50 ´fiestas´ held throughout the year and find out about the history and culture of this historic part of Spain. Of course, if shopping is your thing then there are plenty of opportunities to splash a bit of cash in the shops of the Old Town.
And when you are done, head to our secret Benidorm spot for epic sunset pictures!
It’s all about the great outdoors in Javea and start with spending some time exploring the natural wonders of Montgo Natural Park. If that wears you out, then rest on one of the beautiful beaches in Javea.
Arenal Promenade and Beach have a huge selection of restaurants to choose from and plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained like kayaking, snorkeling or just walking up and down the promenade watching the world go by.
This is, indeed, our province of Alicante‘s favorite spot!
L’Alfàs del Pi
If you are looking for a small town on the Costa Blanca you should head to L’Alfàs del Pi. This is a picturesque part of Costa Blanca with many walks or cycling routes to choose from.
Setting off for a hike through the Parque Natural de Serra Gelda to the lighthouse known as Faro de l’Albir is particularly beautiful and is only about an hour walk from Albir beach.
There is so much to do in Alicante – other than its coast and Alicante beaches – and you could spend an entire holiday on the entertainment there. If you fancy a bit of Flamenco, then La Guitarreria Tablao Flamenco is a popular place to enjoy a drink and some modern Flamenco dancing.
Before you get started with sangria, why not visit the Castle of Santa Barbara or the Barrio Santa Cruz to soak up a bit of the history of Alicante province?
Calpe is another part of Costa Blanca that gives you lots of natural beauty and wonderful beaches with the Parque Natural de Penyal D’lfach.
Don´t forget to visit the Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa San Miguel Arcangel. This unusual wooden Russian Orthodox Church is not your typical Costa Blanca tourist destination, but well worth a visit if you’ve had your fill of traditional Spanish architecture.
