Excursions Costa Blanca - Your Fun Day Out!
Do you like water? Then perhaps are the aquaparks something for you! Here you will find giant slides, watercourses, rafting or similar. While you enjoy a drink, the children can go and enjoy the speed of the slides! Here at the Costa Blanca there are three large aqua parks in vicinity. Please note that these parks are not open all year long. Most of the time you can go from mid-June to mid-September. However, there are none which offer an extended opening time period.
If you like to observe the wildlife, the Rio Safari park in Elche is good place to spend the day at. This is a small zoo park which includes amongst others a crocodile farm and you can get there quickly by train. Apart from this does the city of Elche also offer beautiful palm parks.
If you prefer a larger park however, we recommend you visit the Safari Park Aitana. This is set in middle of the mountains and easily accessible by car. If you want, you can also step out here to stroke the elephants or drink something. The dangerous animals, such as tigers and lions, are behind fences, so you do not need to worry. The rest are walking freely through the park.
“We enjoyed it very much!”
“Where can you still find this?”
These are just a few quotes of people, who joined a safari towards the inland. With just a 30 minutes’ drive from the coast you will find the Spanish spheres here. At the starting point you will enjoy delicious coffee and a cave viewing. During the safari tour you can enjoy the surprisingly untouched nature. You cross mountain trails or flowing water during your journey and can see many regional products, such as almond and olive trees, fig trees and even bamboo! After a wonderful trip, you can relax and sit down at the fully catered BBQ and enjoy a snack and one or multiple drinks if you wish. And this way your exciting day ends!
On the seafront in Torrevieja, a big and tourist seaside town, you will find a big night market every day, from an hour or three, where you can buy all kinds of souvenirs. In the summer season it is particularly busy, especially by the big fair, which is just next to the promenade. This is opened daily starts to get busier from nine o’ clock onwards. Differently than in the UK, do here all children still walk around in the late hours with all their trophies, which they have won that evening. Nevertheless, there also is something for the adults along the bigger attractions of the fair, which makes it a wonderful experience for the whole family!
Karting at the Costa Blanca
There are a lot of kart tracks available at the Costa Blanca. Due to the nice climate, this is a popular activity all year around.
Also a wonderful aspect: Also, for small children are there special children’s karts with less power or duo-karts for all the little ones. Here you can sit in it with your child, and while you navigate the kart, your child can enjoy the race next to you. Some courses even have a separate track where only children can race against each other.
Of course you can come to the Costa Blanca to enjoy water sports. There are various possibilities such as jet skiing, surfing, diving, sailing, water skiing, parasailing and in Santa Pola there even is a kite surfing school. Or you can enjoy the magnificent Mediterranean underwater life close to the island of Tabarca.
Guadalest is part of the infamous castles route. The large, steep rock, on which a flat-roofed church tower, is a true eagle’s nest. Up here the Spanish-Arabian half-breeds could survive for some time after having been expelled by the Levant. A tunnel drilled into the rock leads to the town with its miniature museums, cosy shops, a noble home, the town hall and the church. If you plan a day out, you can visit the beautiful safari park “Aitana” on the way there or back. Apart from this are the “Les Fonts de l’Algar” waterfalls close by and certainly worth a visit.
This shell house is definitely worth the visit. Everything is designed and made by Don Manuel Fulleda Alcaraz. Since he was 7 years old he collected large and small shells on the beaches of Guardamar del Segura and La Manga del Mar Menor. These shells now adorn the walls and patio of his house. The mosaics differ from circles and flowers to animals. A total of 600m2 of walls are covered with approximately 550,000 shells. The shells house can be viewed at Calle Rodeo No. 10 in Rojales and certainly something unique to see here at the Costa Blanca.
At the seaside resort of Benidorm is this beautiful park, called Mundomar, with its dolphins, sea lions, penguins and many other animals. Of course, are there various shows, such as a beautiful dolphin show. The park is set on a mountain slope and overlooks the surrounding countryside. More information under: Www.mundomar.es
