The Costa Blanca North area guide
Costa Blanca’s north is defined as the region of Spain between the capital Alicante and the town of Dénia of the province of Alicante. Boasting exquisite mountain backdrops and pine-covered hillsides, this rustic province is the quintessential Spanish experience so often chased by British expats.
Thank goodness then that, aside from Benidorm, development in the North is largely controlled, offering more opportunity to see the native landscape. You can easily find a delightful villa overlooking the Jalon Valley as you travel further north from Alicante.
The area is filled with sandy and pebble beach coves, such as the stunning Cala del Moraig in Benitachell. For tourist hubs, looks no further than the towns of Benidorm and Alicante itself, where you’ll find a huge range of activities – and more than a few fantastic places to eat.
Things to do
Aside from relaxing by the pool or beach by your hotel or villa, we suggest checking out the beautiful Guadalest Valley north of Benidorm, as well as the spectacular Mount Aitana – the latter of which can be part of a picturesque bike tour down the mountain – just remember your camera!
For those with families, try to check out the MundoMar sea life park - the kids will love it. For more cultured activities – visit the Castillo de Santa Bárbara in Alicante. Its origins date as far back as the 9th century, giving it many stories to tell. The cannons on the battlements overlooking the Mediterranean are something not to miss.
Places to eat
In terms of restaurants, bars and pubs, you’ll definitely find somewhere you like – no matter what part of the North you’re in, there’s bound to be a wide selction of both family friendly and fine dining, perfect for any occasion.
For couples looking for a Western theme and some great live music we would recommend the Western Saloon in Benidorm; the Saloon is perfect for those looking for a lively time and a good choice of cocktails. On the other hand, if you are after more of a wine and dine experience away from the hustle and bustle – you would do well to reserve a table at the more traditionally Spanish Lino’s Bar and Restaurant in Dénia. Families should be keen to check out the Premium Plus steakhouse in Moraira as well, which isn’t as expensive as it sounds!
If you are searching for an insider shopping experience, you can’t really do much better than visiting the Portal de la Marina in Ondara, or the Mercado Central in Alicante. However, if you would like to experience the local markets and feel closer to Spanish culture, we would recommend looking through the Moraira market – which is great for those who love to barter. It is always best to research wherever you are going as well. Sidestepping the malls and finding a bargain at one of the local markets is particularly satisfying – especially when you find a piece of local artisenery you just love.
Getting there and around
If you have made Costa Blanca North your destination, then Alicante airport is going to be your main port of call by air. However, seeing as around 21 UK locations fly into Alicante, you may be spoilt for choice when looking from where to fly from – but this does mean that the Costa Blanca North is a popular destination with the British holidaymaker, so expect to hear a lot of familiar accents! Alicante airport does take a lot of other locations, such as Paris, Stockholm, Moscow and even Reykjavik in Iceland.
From the airport you will need to either rent a car, (from around £1 per day with the cheapest options from Car Del Mar!) or alternatively you could travel by coach, which will regularly feature as an option when it comes to holiday package deals. Of course, there still remains the railway stations dotted around the Costa Blanca North in Alicante, Altea, Benidorm, Dénia, Gata de Gorgos and Villajoyosa/Vila Joiosa. Taxi prices in Alicante can venture onto the expensive side, so if you want to explore the area, we suggest either car rental or carefully plan around buses, etc.
