Villajoyosa’s beaches are absolutely fantastic.
Up and down the Costa Blanca coast you have other also very good beaches but Villajoyosa’s are something special.
All of Villajoyosa’s beaches have the European Blue Flag awards which indicate a good quality standard of beach and facilities.
To the north of Villajoyosa you have Benidorm, a high-rise, huge, busy and mostly very loud tourist resort, Villajoyosa is the opposite, it retains its origins of a small fishing port which continues to trade to this day.
The beaches are unspoilt by development, there are fine wide sandy beaches and small coves offering privacy and wind-breaks. So there are a wide variety of different types of beaches depending on your mood – quiet or active.
Villajoyosa does not attract mass package holiday tourists so it is very Spanish with few international tourists but don’t let this stop you from visiting, Villajoyosa is a taste of the real Spain and the beaches are most definitely worth coming on holiday for.
Only in the summer do the Spanish flock to Villajoyosa’s beaches and even then because there are so many beaches you can always find a quiet spot away from the crowds. If you want some action and things to do there are beaches facilities such as the football pitches with goals, volleyball nets, windsurfing hire, the beach bars, cafes and restaurants.
It almost goes without saying but we must mention it – the weather and climate of Villajoyosa are excellent. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, there are numerous opportunities to enjoy Villajoyosa’s beaches – even in winter it can be very pleasant, although too cold for a swim.
