Costa Blanca & Valencia

Costa Blanca & Valencia

We have been asking mums in Torrevieja, Benidorm, Javea and Alicante about their experiences living in the Costa Blanca with children from pregnancy through to teenage years in all sorts of areas including prenatal classes, nurseries and schools, activities & day-trips, where they shop, where they eat as well as their favourite beaches, parks & play-areas. Everything listed in these sections has been recommended by a local mum, many of whom have also added their comments.

Please pick your town on the left-hand menu - we hope you find it useful! Alternatively you can use our quick links family guide below
