The sea, our little paradise.
The Cala de Finestrat, formed by a charming bay, is naturally protected from the noise of neighboring cities.
The municipality, aware of the natural treasure it possesses, has not spared in its care. These efforts have led him to continuously achieve the distinction of Blue Flag since 1988.
The private initiative has shaped a hotel, restaurant and leisure offer, in absolute harmony with the bay.
Charming restaurants surround the beach, allowing visitors to taste their succulent cuisine by the sea.
Between the sea and the mountain
Finestrat is a beautiful coastal and at the same time mountainous municipality.
The villa, located just 5 kilometers from its beach, rises on a hill characterized by its hanging houses and the peculiar narrow streets of Moorish origin.
A walk through the town invites us to visit the church of Sant Bertomeu and other religious symbols such as the ‘taulells’, the Hermitage or picturesque corners and gardens distributed throughout the municipality.
The historic center is built on the foundations of an old Arab castle where the ‘El Castell’ viewpoint offers magnificent views.
The legend of the mountain
The Puig Campana, a mountain of legend, is, with its 1410 meters high, its proximity to the coast and its peculiar forms, one of the most emblematic points of the Costa Blanca. Without this mountain, the history of Finestrat would not be understood, since it has kept and spoiled its skirts as its most precious treasure.
In the Puig Camana, protected natural space, we will find the ideal place to enjoy the nature of its purest state. Both walkers, adventurers and climbers, as well as those who like to contemplate this beautiful mountain, have a reference on the Levantine coast in Puig Campana.
A look to the past
Finestrat, due to its geographical location, has welcomed numerous civilizations throughout its history. With remains of the Upper Paleolithic and of the Iberian and Roman cultures, the origin of Finestrat dates back to 1,280, when Pedro III, son of Jaume I ‘the conqueror’, granted the Puebla Letter to the locals.
Finestrat, a town with a strong Moorish accent, reflects in the peculiar structure of its streets and archaeological remains, the charm of the Mediterranean villages.
They are worth visiting, opr its history or the natural environment that surrounds them ‘El Castell’, the Tower, the hermitage of ‘Santíssim Crist del Remei’, the Church of ‘Sant Bertomeu’ and ‘La Font del Molí’.
The pleasure on your palate

Typical meals such as ‘arròs amb fessols i naps’, ‘pebrera carlada’, ‘coca girada’ or ‘arròs a banda’ are some of the dishes that the visitor cannot stop tasting.
The famous Mediterranean garden and the raw material of our mountains, together with the proximity of the fishing ports and the expertise of our chefs, guarantee the gastronomic satisfaction of those who visit us.
