Finestart is a tourist area, one of the small municipalities in the province of Alicante.
Finestrat is partially located on the Costa Blanca, near the famous resort town of Benidorm, at the foot of a picturesque natural attraction - Mount Puig Campana. On the east side, Finestrat borders with Benidorm, and on the west side with the highlands of Villajoyosa.
Finestrat is only one small homonymous beach of Cala de Finestrat (Cala de Finestrat) or Cala de Finestrat O Morales (Cala de Finestrat O Morales).
The beach of Finestrat is located in the largest sandy beach of Benidorm Poniente. Separates the beach of Finestrat and Poniente beach only a small mountain Tosal-de-Cala, Finestrat therefore often referred to as Benidorm, however, is a completely different area. But it probably doesn't matter much, because to walk to Finestrat of Benidorm is just in 10-15 minutes, and the location of the two cities is, that you will not notice where the end starts Benidorm and Finestrat.
Finestrat Beach, or simply La Cala (Playa de La Cala), is a small, but very cozy Bay. On both sides the Bay is surrounded by cliffs, making the beach even more attractive and picturesque.
On the West side, the beach is quite wide
With the East more narrow
This beach has been awarded the "Blue flag" - a sign of purity and safety of the beach and sea water. On the beach is fine and pleasant to the touch, like flour, light sand. The beach is cleaned daily, the sand dub.
The sea water is clean and clear, set in shallow sea, sandy bottom, in some places there are stones.
In the height of tourist season on the beach quite crowded, with all the consequences: more dirty, the water is more turbid. Perfect, in our opinion, time of year, to stay in Finestrat is the end of August-beginning of September months. In this time of vacationers becomes smaller, the temperature comfortable and the water in the sea still holds its heat.
On the beach there is all necessary infrastructure: bins, soul to feet, changing cabins, children's and sports playgrounds, rope climbing structures, wooden floorings, for people with disabilities, can play beach soccer or volleyball.
Natural shade on the beach La Cala de Finestrat is almost there, except that, in the shade of the few palm trees that serve as more than decoration for the beach than a shelter from the sun. In search of shadows you can rent sun loungers and parasols. Approximate cost of a sunbed and umbrella from the sun - 4.5 Euro/day.
You can bring your own chairs, loungers and umbrellas
On the right (Western) side of the beach is the rental of water sports. Here you can drive along the sea waves on a jet ski or banana boat trips to visit the Isle of Benidorm.
From Finestrat is a plus - the area is located near the bustling and happening city of the Costa Blanca - Benidorm, at the same time, in Finestrat more calm and quiet, while Benidorm with its many attractions, parks (Terra mítica, Terra Natura), bars, cafes and restaurants, can very quickly be reached on foot. Besides, Finestrat, is considered a prestigious area to live.
Along the beach is a walking area - promenade. Located on the waterfront cafes and restaurants, guest houses and apartments.
