The beach of Finestrat, known as La Cala Finestrat, is just three kilometres away from Benidorm.

It actually belongs to three municipalities; Benidorm, La Villajoyosa and Finestrat.  It is very much in contrast with the village, with tall buildings and a built-up urbanisation.

The beach itself is clean, golden, and sandy, with a safe swimming current, which makes it perfect for families.  It is also one of the first smoke-free beaches in the Valencian Community, so smoking and vaping are strictly prohibited.

It is very popular with tourists, particularly during the summer months, although it doesn’t get as busy as the neighbouring Benidorm beaches.

Its seabed is rich with eye-catching fish, corals, and underwater caves, making it popular for snorkelling and diving.

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants surrounding the beach area, offering a delightful variety of dishes.

From delicious seafood to traditional dishes like the ‘coca girada,’ a kind of poached wheat flour paste containing vegetables, sausage, fish, and salted fish.
