Cala Finestrat, on the Costa Blanca, was once a separate entity but is now almost a suburb of Benidorm. Lying three kilometres south of Benidorm, it has managed to remain a fairly relaxed resort that is popular with families. Only forty kilometres from Alicante, it benefits from a short transfer time from the airport. Cala Finestrat has a wide range of accommodation, good shopping facilities and many restaurants serving a diverse cuisine. There are many recreational facilities both in and out of the water and there are numerous tourist attractions in the area. A Cala Finestrat holiday offers a relaxing break with a guarantee of summer sun, a sandy beach with water sporting facilities and, for those who wish, all the excitement of Benidorm is just around the corner.
Being close to Benidorm, Cala Finestrat has much to offer. It is a fairly quiet resort lying a very short distance from its gregarious neighbour. Holidaymakers can enjoy relaxing days on a sandy beach and choose between peaceful evenings in Cala Finestrat or pulsating music and dance in Benidorm.
Cala Finestrat has wide appeal. The sandy beach is very popular with families with small children. Water sports enthusiasts can participate in a range of activities and golfers have a choice of courses. Couples of all ages can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Cala Finestrat, while those looking for lively evenings can take a taxi to the night clubs of Benidorm.
The most popular time to take a Cala Finestrat holiday is from April to October when the temperature ranges from a very pleasant twenty five degrees rising to the early thirties in the height of summer.
Cala Finestrat is situated only three kilometres from Benidorm on the Costa Blanca. Surrounded by hills is the original village of Finestrat with Cala Finestrat as its seaside extension. The resort is not the prettiest with a number of high-rise hotels and apartments but it does have a sandy beach, making it popular with families with small children. The beach slopes gently into the clear blue Mediterranean waters making it safe for children and less confident swimmers. A variety of water sports are available in the area.
Cala Finestrat has accommodation to suit all budgets from all-inclusive hotels to self-catering apartments. There are minimarkets for holiday provisions and a large hypermarket on the outskirts of the resort. There are also many small gift and craft shops as well as a weekly market. Bars, cafes and restaurants supply a diverse cuisine which caters for even the most pernickety of palates. There are many establishments when you can order, if you so wish, a full English breakfast or a Sunday roast.
Apart from the sandy beach and the wonderfully warm clear sea, Cala Finestrat and neighbouring Benidorm offer a wide range of recreational activities. These include the Terre Mitica theme park, based on ancient civilisations, a popular attraction with thrilling rides and Aqualandia, a water park with daring slides. At Rincon de Loix, Mundomar the marine and exotic animal park has dolphins, sea lions and penguins, as well as birds and other small creatures. A submarine can be taken to Benidorm Island, a conservation area three kilometres out into the bay, where the clear waters enable the visitor to see the teeming marine life. Golfers are well provided for with a choice of courses in the area.
Cala Finestrat nightlife contrasts sharply with that of Benidorm reflecting the family nature of the resort. Many of the hotels provide evening entertainment. The area around the beach is the liveliest but for those who want to dance through the night Benidorm is the place to be. There the clubs, discos and karaoke bars, all serve low cost drinks, and are a magnet for fun lovers.
Cala Finestrat shopping provides all the holiday essentials as well as the obligatory gifts and souvenirs. There is an open air Market each Friday. Those looking for a greater variety of goods can walk, or take the bus, to Benidorm where there is a very large hypermarket as well as markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Popular purchases include wickerwork, leather goods, pottery and embroidered linens.
Cala Finestrat has many bars, cafes and restaurants serving a wide range of cuisine and catering for all tastes. There is everything from traditional fish restaurants to British pub food, and from fast food to international cuisine. A good way to try Spanish food is to order a plate of tapas which consists of a medley of bite-sized dishes. Tapas are also ideal for filling the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner, which is served later in Spain than at home.
Children are always made very welcome in Spanish restaurants and their tastes and portion sizes are usually accommodated.
Local wines are pleasant and inexpensive.
