The best beaches on the Costa Blanca

The Costa Blanca is the coastline of the province of Alicante, with about 240 kilometers of extension. The name with which we know this coast is due to the orography of the area, in which the intense blue of the Mediterranean contrasts with large white surfaces, which are formed by beaches, but also by light-colored rocky elevations.

If you already have your bikini or swimsuit ready in your suitcase, get ready to discover the best beaches of the Costa Blanca to enjoy the sun and the sea.

Racó del Conill en Villajoyosa

In Villajoyosa, is located what, for many, is one of the best coves on the Costa Blanca for nudism. It is not very large, and in summer it is usually very crowded, but the rest of the year it is much quieter.

Unlike other beaches and coves in the area, do not expect to find fine white sand here, because it is a cove (rather two) of stone. Of course, the views from there are spectacular, and you will find yourself in a unique natural environment.

Being a small cove, it does not have services such as showers or lifeguards, nor does it have a beach bar. However, work has been done at the municipal level on its accessibility and you have both stairs and handrails for safer and easier access. In addition, you can bring any snack you prefer, because you will find garbage cans at your disposal.
