Costa Blanca attractions and things to do

Jardin de los Sentidos

Jardin de los Sentidos

The Jardín de los Sentidos is, as its name says, a garden of the senses, but not just the five physical senses. You can add the senses of romance, of charm, of languor, of humour, of peace and calm, if indeed those senses exist – and if they don’t, they should.
Aqualandia Benidorm

Aqualandia

Despite the draw of Benidorm’s wonderful beaches, Aqualandia is still one of its major attractions. Scary water slides, lazy lagoons, a drift down the Amazon or tumble in the Atlantic surf.
Terra Mítica

Terra Mítica

Terra Mítica is Benidorm’s main theme park and is designed around the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean; Greece, Rome, Iberia, the Islands and Egypt, and the mythical world of heroes and gods
