Resort Guide

Benidorm is the most popular resort in Costa Blanca, known for its four-mile stretch of white sandy beaches, family-friendly attractions, amazing amusement parks, aqua parks, international restaurants, and vibrant nightlife with bars and nightclubs. Benidorm offers great value and fun for all, making it a popular destination for travellers each year.
Calpe is a rugged resort located just north of Benidorm, offering a different experience. This former fishing village is dominated by a 980-foot-tall limestone rock, offering stunning scenery and some of the best beaches in Costa Blanca. The majority of restaurants in Calpe are family-run, making it easy to find great traditional tapas.
Albir is a hidden gem in Costa Blanca, located between Benidorm and Calpe. This small town offers a relaxed atmosphere for sun worshippers and is known for its upmarket area. Albir's main pebbly beach, Playa de Racó de l'Albir, has been awarded a blue flag, attracting visitors who enjoy sunbathing or simply walking along its long promenade. The resort's diverse al fresco dining scene includes many quality international restaurants, and it attracts A-list Spanish actors and hosts a film festival along the beach each year, as well as its Hollywood-style Walk of Fame.
As you can see, Costa Blanca is a great destination for cheap holidays that offers something for everyone. With its long coastline, warm climate, and diverse range of activities and attractions, it's no wonder why it has been a favourite among British travellers for decades.
