Finestrat

The village of Finestrat and the beachside resort of Cala Finestrat are both located in the Marina Baixa region on the Costa Blanca, close to neighbouring Benidorm and around 40 kilometres from the city of Alicante and its International Airport.

The village nestles on the mountainside of Puig Campana affording wonderful views to the mountains and out to the coast and Mediterranean. The charming village has a typical Moorish feel, with colourfully painted houses and narrow cobbled streets. Cala Finestrat on the other hand has increasingly become more and more popular and its development has made it almost an extension to Benidorm itself.

Finestrat Village

The village of Finestrat has retained much of its old school charm, with its Moorish feel and ancient monuments, including the 13th century Castell (Castle) de Finestrat, the 18th century Church of Saint Bartholomew, La Torre (the watch tower) and the Hermitage Crist de Remei.

There is a scattering of bars and restaurants servicing typical Mediterranean cuisine and a few shops and amenities. However, close by you have all the amenities and facilities of Cala Finestrat and Benidorm.

Cala Finestrat

Cala Finestrat is a beach resort located just three kilometres away from busy Benidorm. The resort offers adequate amenities and facilities, a good selection of restaurants, bars and shops. Everything else you need is available in Benidorm, which is easily reached by bus and taxi.

Cala Finestrat is suitable for families and couples looking for a relaxed beach resort, yet close to lots of activities and amenities should you desire.

During the summer months an arts and crafts market is held on the promenade during the afternoon.

Beaches

The beach of La Cala is fairly quiet, as most wanting a more upbeat atmosphere head to the beaches surrounding Benidorm. The beach is a clean sweep of golden sand, ideal for children and safe for bathing. There are some delightful restaurants set along promenade.

Places to visit
Neighbouring Benidorm offers a vibrant and pulsating nightlife and excellent shopping facilities and the wonderful, cultural city of Alicante is just 40 kilometres away.

The Terre Mitica and Terra Natura theme parks, Aqualandia water park and Mundomar marine and exotic animal park are close by and all offer a fun day out for the whole family.

If you are looking to enjoy a round or two of golf during your holiday, then will be content at Finestrat, with the Real Faula golf club close by, which offers two excellent courses.

Eating out and nightlife

Both Finestrat and Cala Finestrat are relaxed destinations compared to some of their neighbouring resorts. Both offer a selection of local bars and restaurants, where you can enjoy good cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere.

For those looking to enjoy a more vibrant nightlife and a wider selection of international cuisine, then head to Benidorm, the resort is situated just three kilometres away and offers a huge selection of bars, restaurants, nightclubs and more!

Climate
Finestrat enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold north winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.

In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination.

Finestrat review

Village très mignon


Costa Blanca reviews

En bordure de mer il y a de très jolie ville comme Albir Altea, Villa Joisa, et bien sûr Calp. Pour une ambiance de fête il y a Benidorm a 15min en voiture.

Finestrat review

Pleasant, small hill town with restaurants, cafes and small shops, little influenced by tourism. Excellent access to the superb mountains inland where there is walking and rock climbing as well as other interesting towns.


Costa Blanca reviews

Altea and Vilajoyosa were Useful for good dining. The high rise buildings of Benidorm are a disgrace to Spanish town planning. Anything better than Burgerking for eating out was difficult to find and the streets were very busy; English was the main language, no Spanish atmosphere. Beaches throughout were really boring and offered no shade. Good bird watching at the Algar charco, salinas at Calpe and south of Alicante

Finestrat review

A nice typical spanish village with a few - but good - bars and restaurants. English/german is not used much, but people are very friendly and helpful and you can feel they want to understand you. Do expect barking dogs in the night - everybody seems to have one or two, but if you know Spain, this should be nothing new. What we liked, was the tranquility of Finestrat, knowing that if action was needed, Benidorm is only a 10 min drive away


Costa Blanca reviews

Just perfect as everything is there
