Valencia - 1 day

Head north to Valencia and take the coastal route. Pass through thriving Benidorm, with its dominant high-rise buildings, to Altea – a former fishing village reminiscent of past times. Catch sight of Calpe, a romantic village, and Denia with its sublime beaches and palm-lined promenade with cafes and designer shops. Valencia is the third largest city in Spain and is surrounded by rice fields and orange groves. More cultural than its neighbouring areas, there is plenty to see and do.

La Manga - 1 day

At the southernmost tip of Costa Blanca is La Manga, which can be easily reached from Alicante. Situated at the start of the Costa Callide ‘the warm coast’, the area's desirable climate makes it popular all year-round. La Manga offers an abundance of golf courses, including the famous La Manga Golf Course. Pass the attractive town of Torrevieja en route and spend some time at Mar Menor, Europe’s largest saltwater lake – its shallow, calm lagoon is a popular choice with families.

Denia via Benidorm- 1 day

Head north along the coastal route taking in Villajoysa, a small fishing village. Carry on further northwards and catch a glimpse of the beaches of lively Benidorm, quaint Altea and picturesque Calpe. Visit the caves at Vall d'Ebo and then move on to the Blue Flag beaches of Denia. Absorb the town’s traditional Spanish feel, relax in the cafes and shop in designer boutiques. If you decide to stopover, the buzzing nightlife, great choice of dining and cosmopolitan port will keep you entertained.

Around Alicante 1 day

Spend a day exploring the areas that surround Alicante. Head inland to see the Cuevas del Canelobre. You’ll pass scenic countryside and breathtaking mountain ranges on the way. These fascinating caves are situated 24km from Alicante and house the highest vaults in the whole of Spain. Their interior, which is often compared to that of a cathedral, has coloured lights that illuminate the rock and mineral formations. Afterwards go to charming Busot, which boasts unique views, a range of restaurants and hiking trails.

Guadalest - 1 day

Enjoy a charming drive into the mountains to the small town of Guadalest, which has been declared a 'Monument of Historical and Artistic Value' and is a must for any fly-drive holiday to the Costa Blanca. This very pretty, historic town will entice you with its cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. Sightseeing options include El Castell de Guadalest, which boasts fantastic views of the village from its cliff top location.
