Places to visit in Costa Blanca
There is no shortage of fun things to get up to in Costa Blanca; the only problem you might have is finding the time to fit all of these exciting activities into one holiday. Benidorm is home to one of the world’s most innovative national parks; Terra Natura. Covering one square mile, this park allows visitors to get just inches away from exotic animals such as tigers and elephants with nothing but an invisible glass barrier between them.
If, during your stay, you get the urge to escape the buzzing atmosphere of lively Costa Blanca then treat yourself to a spot of sightseeing in the mountain village of Guadalest. This centuries-old town is jaw droppingly dramatic to look at and is carved into a towering Cliffside with a monumental Moorish castle perched on the very top. There are guided tours into the village daily or you could attempt the journey to the top of this fairytale village yourself. Another incredible sightseeing opportunity in the area is the Algar Waterfalls. These stunning falls are the most popular of Spain’s protected wetland countryside areas and come complete with rock pools, rugged cliffs and scattered wildflowers.
It would be a crime to visit Costa Blanca and not make the most of the resort’s pride and joy: its beaches. El Paradis in Villajoyosa lives up to its heavenly name. This small, white sandy bay is backed by whitewashed houses and looks out over some of the clearest Mediterranean waters you’ll ever see. And for endless action head over to La Granadella in Javea; here you’ll find every water sport you could imagine, including paragliding, windsurfing, diving and jet-skiing. Les Rotes in Denia is the perfect place for couples to get away from it all and have a romantic, relaxing day by the sea while El Carabassi in Santa Pola is a dream come true for parents of small children thanks to its safe, shallow waters and soft, golden sand.
