Activities for Kids Costa Blanca

Alicante boasts the perfect Mediterranean climate for families seeking an outdoorsy lifestyle for their children, with plenty of fun outdoor activities for kids all year round. Kids will love exploring the ancient medieval Castle of Santa Bárbara, with archeological ruins and stunning views overlooking the bay of Alicante. The Costa Blanca is known for its beautiful golden sand and crystal clear water, and Alicante boasts some fabulous blue flag beaches for families, with a gradual slope offering relatively shallow waters for little ones to play in. 

 

With many parks, playgrounds and promenades, there are so many free outdoor activities for kids in Alicante. Picnics and boat trips always make popular summer outdoor activities for kids, with families enjoying the many coves and bays along the Costa Blanca. Older kids can also try paddle boarding, wind surfing and sailing with the different water sports companies operating in the region. Outdoor nature activities for kids include visiting the Algar Waterfalls in the beautiful Les Fonts de l’Algar nature reserve, with freshwater natural pools to swim in. The Salinas de Torrevieja is another popular spot for outdoor day-trips with kids near Alicante, with naturally occurring bright pink salt lagoons.

 

One of the most beautiful and fascinating places to go with older children is Tabarca Island. Set just off the coast, the island has a unique real life pirate history, with fun guided day trips to the island available year round.

 

Some inside activities for children include soft play centres with ball pools, slides and bouncy castles. Older children and tweens will love inside activities such as adrenaline-fuelled problem solving escape games, competitive bowling and cinema screenings (with some cinemas showing English language films with Spanish subtitles, known as VO or versión original).
