THINGS TO DO IN COSTA BLANCA
The Orihuela Costa and Costa Blanca region offers a lot of various activities for all ages the whole year round.
With a quick search on google you would find plenty. To narrow it down we list a few of the ones here that we think would be well worth a try.
Orihuela costa is not called the golfers paradise for nothing. There are 4 great golf courses within a 5 to 10 minute drive depending on which Casas Blanca accomodation you have chosen.

The Aquopolis water park is located on the outskirts of Torrevieja, close to the sports area. In the park there are several water activities for both children and adults. There is and a green area with many umbrellas and a wide range of security measures that provide help to all attractions. And for the youngest children, there is a children’s pool with water toys and a mini water slide.
Aqua Park Flamingo
Aqua Park Flamingo is a small but a lovely water park in Torrevieja ideal for families with young children since the park is not too big to walk around. It has a few slides suitable for younger children, with a shallow pool area for them to play in. They also have a number of larger slides for children or adults. It has and larger, deeper pool for swimming. There are plenty of shaded areas to relax during the midday sun and sunbeds are free.
The tiny island of Tabarca is one of the top tourist destinations within the Costa Blanca. A visit here is just like stepping back in time. In 1986 the island and and its surrounding waters were declared a protected marina and bird reserve.
Boats to Tabarca leave from Torrevieja, Guardamar, Alicante and Benidorm, although for the most frequent crossings, widest choice of boats and shortest journey of about half an hour, it is best to depart from Santa Pola’s marina. Some boats have glass bottoms, so you can admire the creatures of the deep.
Once on the Island you can explore!! There is the old square at the heart of Tabarca, the church and graveyard, the museum, the ruined walls of the fort, the lighthouse, the beaches and coves, the paths that crisscross the island, an abundance of bars and restaurants as well as souvenir shops. If that isn’t enough there is the crystal clear waters for some top class snorkelling!
