Who doesn't want to enjoy a bit of paradise? Summer is approaching and those who are thinking of travelling to Alicante to enjoy its beaches will find in this selection places where you can immortalise a breathtaking sunrise and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in sheer bliss...


With more than 200 kilometres of coastline, the province of Alicante has a wide selection of incredible beaches, coves and cliffs that will take your breath away, but here are five that are certain to do so...

Bol Nou Beach in Villajoyosa



Also considered a cove, it is one of the most representative of this Alicante town. Its small stones and golden sand form a half-moon stretching more than 150 meters with crystalline turquoise waters that will remind anyone of the Caribbean. Awarded with the Blue Flag, it is undoubtedly a compulsory stop-off when looking for a bit of Mediterranean relaxation.

Albir Beach (L 'Alfàs Del Pi)



Just about three kilometres from the town centre, Albir beach is perfect to enjoy a magnificent day out at the beach where its nearby promenade allows you to enjoy numerous restaurants and beach bars. One of the main characteristics of this beach is its transparent water and pebbles, which allows you to get wet without getting covered in sand, for those who are not so keen on the sand getting everywhere, this is your beach. It's also great for the kids...they love playing with the pebbles.


Muchavista Beach in Campello



Its varied and attractive coastline offers a great opportunity to satisfy the senses. This extensive beach of fine sand is 3,300 meters long and 80 meters wide. It is located next to San Juan beach and is perfect for practising water sports such as windsurfing.

La Fossa Beach (Calpe)



It is bordered to the north by the Calalga beach and has been awarded the “Q” mark for Tourist Quality. It is considered one of the best beaches in Alicante, where time literally stands still. Its kilometre of fine golden sand is mixed with the fabulous landscape of the Peñón de Ifach, mesmerising.

La Grandella Beach (Jávea)



It is undoubtedly one of the most famous and not to be missed. Winner for two consecutive years of The Best Beach in Spain Award, this 220-metre cove is surrounded by irregular cliffs and crystalline waters where you can practice scuba diving and enjoy its marine fauna.
