Ahhh, the sun, sand and sea of a Costa Blanca holiday. If you want to spend some quality time with your kids and partner, the delightful Mediterranean coast of Spain is heaven on earth. But while you and the other adults in your party might be content with the tropical drinks, a book and the pool side chaise, your little ones want more out of their holiday!
Here are our five favourite things to do on a Costa Blanca holiday.
1. Cycle through the streets of Benidorm
Hire some bicycles and take in the sights, sounds and smells of Benidorm’s Old Town. The cobbled streets of Altea and Albir are perfect for a gentle cycle with the kids. Remember to stop for delicious refreshments along the way!
2. Get your adrenaline pumping at Elche Palmeral Aventuras
Elche Palmeral Aventuras is the perfect place to take your kids for a day of action and excitement. Archery, ziplining, laser tag and climbing walls – there is something here for everyone. Test your own balance and skill on 8 different adventure courses.
3. Get up close with dinosaurs at DinoPark
DinoPark is located just outside of Algar, and it will astonish and delight your wee palaeontologists. They can check out more than 30 realistically sized dinosaurs, including Triceratops, Velociraptors, Diplodocus and Tyrannosaurus Rex.
4. Treat yourself at the Museo del Chocolate
Kids don’t always love museums, but they will be begging to visit the Museo del Chocolate! The Valor Chocolate Company has its own museum in the quaint village of Villajoyosa and you can taste to your heart’s content. This may just be the highlight of any Costa Blanca holiday for chocoholics.
5. Discover the Caves del Canelobre
Journey to the centre of the earth (or just a few metres below the ground) to the Caves del Canelobre, located just 24 km from Alicante. These caves are ideal for families to explore, and the attraction offers a 30-minute guided tour to get your started. Adventure awaits!
Camping Alannia Costa Blanca is an ideal family holiday resort just 20 minutes from Alicante airport with prices starting from €49/night for up to 6 people.
