White-sand beaches, cities crammed with culture, and some of the best theme parks in Spain – they’re all in store on holidays to Valencia.
All bases covered
The Valencia region, on Spain’s east coast, boasts miles of white-sand beaches, lively resorts packed with bars and restaurants, and cities that give Barcelona and Madrid a run for their money. It’s no wonder it’s such a hit with holidaymakers.
The Costa Blanca – or ‘White Coast’ – runs the full length of the Valencia region. It’s edged with more than 200 kilometres of soft, white-sand beaches, which are lapped by the Mediterranean Sea. When it comes to resorts, Benidorm is the big name here, thanks to its Blue Flag beaches, pretty old town, and party-hard attitude. Away from the beach, you’ve got top theme parks, like Terra Mitica, and white-knuckle waterparks, such as Aqualandia.
City-wise, the Valencia region has 2 big hitters. Alicante is a sophisticated spot, with stylish boutiques, trendy art galleries and a sleek marina. The city of Valencia, meanwhile, is a charming mix of old and new – on the one hand, you’ve got grand palaces and a quaint old quarter, on the other, world-class museums and trendy clubs.
