Playa Paraíso: the trendy place to be in Villajoyosa
Playa Paraíso, also known as Playa Paradís, has become one of the most famous in the entire province of Alicante, especially among young people. As it should be! Without a doubt, its name is a true reflection of reality, as this beach is located in one of the most beautiful stretches of the Costa Blanca, just a step away from the Hotel Montíboli.
This immense beach with crystal clear waters has some of the most Instagram able corners and offers a wide range of activities to enjoy the sea in a thousand and one different ways. You want to know more? Today we tell you all the details of this paradisiacal corner so that you can fully enjoy the coming spring.
What is the Playa Paraíso like?
The Playa Paradís brings together the best characteristics of the Costa Blanca coastline, offering us its best version. And it is that despite being the most popular beach in Villajoyosa, its 1.5 kilometres long and more than 30 meters wide allows you to enjoy this paradise throughout the year without crowds. To which also contributes that it is located in a semi-urbanized area, in a natural environment far from the town centre, but very accessible.
The most distinctive hallmark of the Playa Paraíso is the turquoise blue colour of its waters. On the shore, the waves caress the fine golden sand that alternates with areas of pebbles and palm trees. There are areas for all tastes! All this delimited by a huge cliff at the southern end that gives it a postcard appearance.
Equipped with all services
Playa Paraíso has all kinds of services, especially in high season. Throughout the year, the beach has access for people with reduced mobility, footbaths and a very large car park. But, in addition, from the month of April, services such as lifeguards and the rental of hammocks and umbrellas are added.
The beach bars are a classic! With a bohemian and relaxed atmosphere, during the day and until the early hours of the morning, the beach has terraces on the sand where you can enjoy a drink, a snack and even some tapas without missing the music. In recent years this beach and its beach bars have become a mandatory meeting point for summer nights.
Ideal for practicing water sports
Our friends from Alicante Aventura turn Playa Paraíso into their operations centre every summer, putting endless activities at our fingertips to get the most out of our experience at sea. Renting a kayak or a paddle surf board is a fantastic option to get to know the surroundings of this beach and discover how many secrets remain uncovered when looking at land from the sea.
But if there is a special treat, it is the kayak trip that they organize every summer during the nights of the full moon. Group outings that depart from this beach to cross the horizon in front of the Montiboli Hotel, giving unique moments to those who dare to embark. An unforgettable experience!
How to access Paradise Beach?
Playa Paradís is located at the southern end of the municipality of Villajoyosa, next to the Hotel Montiboli development. There are ample car parks nearby, although it can also be reached by the local bus (33) or tram (L1).
If you come by car, you would have to access it by N-332 that connects Alicante and Valencia along the coast. In it you have to take the Villajoyosa Sur exit that leads directly to Playa Paraíso. You won’t get lost!
Do not miss the surroundings of this unique beach!
If this beach is a paradise, its surroundings are no less so. Immediately to the south and only separated by a slender but short cliff is the Bol Nou cove, which is for many the little sister of Paradís, due to its similarity and its extension. And a little further on are the beautiful coves of L'Esparrelló and La Caleta, which can be accessed directly from the facilities of the Hotel Montiboli itself.
To the north is the town centre of Villajoyosa with its picturesque old town full of colourful houses brimming with charm and tradition. The perfect finishing touch for a day that smells of the Mediterranean on all four sides.
What is more special than enjoying this paradise when everyone has left? The Hotel Montíboli is located on a cliff just a few meters from Playa Paradís, which will allow you to witness movie sunrises or walk along its promenade once the hustle and bustle becomes calm and you can only hear the roar of the waves on the seashore. Gastronomy, five-star service, a magical setting... We can't think of a better way to start spring!
