Sightseeing in Costa Blanca

Guadelest

A beautiful village with unparalleled views of the surrounding area is Guadelest. The castle of Guadelest (El Castell de Guadelest) offers a nice insight into the life of the past in this unique place. From the castle you get the beautiful view over the mountains, the reservoir and the village itself.

Cuevas de Canalobre

Located in Busot, these limestone caves are a beautiful collection of irregularly shaped caves with stalactites and stalagmites.

Fiestas de Moros y Cristianos

The feast of the Moors and Christians is exuberantly celebrated in almost every village and town on the Costa Blanca. This authentic Spanish celebration is accompanied by beautiful parades, many fireworks and a big party with delicious food (including paella) and drink (wine). The largest and most famous Moros y Cristianos festival can be found in the town of Alcoy (Alcoi).

Altea

Altea is one of the most beautiful towns on the Costa Blanca. It has a beautiful old town with a beautiful church, the Virgin del Consuelo church. From the square in front of the church you have a beautiful view over the town and the white houses in which a large number of art galleries can be found.

Huerto del Cura

This botanical garden is among the most beautiful of its kind and is located in the beautiful town of Elche (Elx). A famous tree in the palm park is the Imperial Palm.

Peñon d’Ifach

Who drives along the Costa Blanca and passes Calpe can not ignore this gigantic cape. Peñon d’Ifach towers with a height of over three hundred meters far above the Mediterranean Sea. Those who enjoy a brisk walk can walk up in over an hour. The ecological conditions on the rock are different from the rest of the Costa Blanca.

Castillo de Santa Bárbara

Most people who fly to the Costa Blanca don’t see more of Alicante than the airport. Too bad, because the city itself is definitely worth a visit. The central point in the city is formed by the Explanada de España, a beautiful boulevard surrounded by greenery. In Alicante stands the Castillo de Santa Bárbara, a castle that lies on top of the Monte Benecantil. The castle can also be reached by elevator.

Villajoyosa

If you see pictures of Villajoyosa (La Vila Joiosa) then chances are that you immediately recognize the place. This is because of the old district at the beach where the houses in various beautiful colors stand out against the sandy beach. A walk through the city is worthwhile. While you’re there you should also visit the chocolate museum of chocolate factory Valor or the ethnographic museum.

Flea market of Jalón (Xaló)

Within the Costa Blanca, you can choose from a large number of markets to visit. Most of these local markets have an offer that unfortunately is not very distinctive from the rest. The typical Spanish dresses, the cheap sunglasses and the bags that do look a lot like certain expensive brands…. you see them everywhere. The flea market held every day in the village of Jalón is a relief. Antiques, trinkets and art form the bulk of the offerings. If you’re in time, you can go for a wine tasting in the wine cooperative opposite.

Benidorm

You love it or you hate it. There seems to be no middle ground for the high-rise resort town of Benidorm. This is mass tourism in its most extreme form that you can imagine. This makes Benidorm an attraction in itself.
