Spanish Classic that won’t costa lot

Post Thumbnail

Spain’s coastline has been drawing tourists for decades and is undoubtedly still a popular choice today, especially the Costa Blanca.

The ‘white coast’ and its bustling resorts have been a haven for sun and fun seekers for many years and it seems our love affair with this hotspot is still going strong.

Its popularity never wanes and it’s easy to see why.

With Benidorm still leading the way for British holidaymakers, this year-round favourite packs a punch when it comes to entertainment.

By day, there are some great attractions and theme parks for families, such as Mundomar, Terra Mitica and Aqualandia.

After dark, the resort really bursts into life with some lively, in your face nightlife for the grown ups!

It’s not all party party though; there are other delightful resorts along the Alicante coast too.

Here are our favourites to help you choose:


Altea, north of Alicante
Altea, north of Alicante

Separated from bustling Benidorm by a small mountain, Altea couldn’t be more of a contrast. Life here doesn’t get too hurried and you’re more likely to find traditional Spanish eateries than Brit-style fish and chip bars.


A popular spot for Spain’s city folk, Moraira has grown into a lively holiday resort without losing any of its authentic, traditional charm.
