Read on for our top five White Coast spots for your 2019 family break – from the bright lights of Benidorm to the designer stores of Alicante.

1. Benidorm

One of the most well-known resorts in Spain, Benidorm will keep the kids busy with long stretches of beach, tons of water sports and world-class theme parks such as Aqualandia and Terra Mitica.

There's plenty of fun for mum and dad too with a buzzing nightlife, more than 500 restaurants and an attractive old town to explore.

Book a one-week break – including flights and self catering apartments – from £142pp with Love Holidays (for travel in April 2019) or from £228pp with Jet 2 Holidays (for travel in May 2019).

2. Alicante

The pretty city of Alicante has beautiful beaches, historical sights and chic shops – as well as top notch restaurants and legendary nightlife for when the kids are tucked up in bed.

For family-friendly outings, you can explore the Santa Barbara Castle, take a surf lesson or meet the marine life at the Acuario Mediterraneo (Aquarium).

Book a one-week escape – including flights, bed and breakfast – on Travel Supermarket from £181pp (for travel in May 2019) or from £210pp on Love Holidays (for travel in April 2019).

3. Denia

Take it down a notch or two at this relaxed beach resort, which offers up a nice balance of tourist attractions and local life.

Denia is great for families with its long sandy beaches, child-friendly restaurants and a laid-back vibe – along with attractions, such as the castle and toy museum, which the whole clan can enjoy.

Book a seven-night break with flights and hotel from £214pp on Travel Supermarket (for travel in April 2019) and from £237pp with On the Beach (for travel in April 2019).

4. Calpe

Another best-of-both-worlds resort, Calpe boasts quality beaches and a modern seafront with great seafood restaurants and lively bars but has managed to keep its fishing village feel, with a traditional old town and famous fish market.

Adventurous families will be kept busy with many outdoor activity companies in Calpe, from quad biking and buggy driving on the beach to horse riding in the countryside.

Book a one-week holiday including flights and self catering apartment from £142pp with On the Beach (travelling in April 2019) and from £157pp on Travel Supermarket (travelling in April 2019).

Our tips for finding top holiday offers

BOOK LAST MINUTE If you're able to look last minute you'll often find good deals, as companies look to encourage bookings and fulfill availability.

5. Torrevieja

A popular tourist hot spot, but for a reason, Torrevieja has miles of sandy beaches and water sports – such as JetSki and Flyboard – to keep you busy on your family break.

There are huge parks – including the Parque de las Naciones – and the Aquopolis water park, where kids can burn off steam – and there are numerous family-friendly restaurants and ice cream kiosks dotted along the seafront.
