San Juan is a popular and very pleasant town along the Costa Blanca and part of the autonomous community of Valencia. The town and area of San Juan incorporates a three kilometre stretch of golden sand as well as crystal-clear waters and a lively city centre. It is a more peaceful alternative to nearby Benidorm but with the facilities and weather to match.

San Juan is at its busiest throughout the summer period - from spring until autumn - but never gets too busy at any time of year. Temperatures reach the high 20s to low 30s on most days throughout the summer making it a very reliable destination to visit in that sense. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months over the winter period but the temperatures do drop at this time of year and the whole town isn’t really as attractive as it is during the hot summer months.
By far the biggest attraction to San Juan is its beach area. This wonderful stretch of golden beach offers hammocks, sun umbrellas and has a variety of beach cafes for grabbing refreshments. The beach is perfect for children as it is very clean and the waters are safe. In the town of San Juan itself you will find busy streets as locals and tourists mingle in various bars and cafes. There is also a street market held in the centre of town each Saturday. If you fancy a day trip away, we recommend that you have a look at the busier resort of El Campello.
San Juan has a varied selection of accommodation options on offer with everything from budget-friendly hotels to luxury villas to private apartments that are self-catered. No matter your preference in stay, San Juan is likely to have it. Most places are also located close to the beach which is ideal. Along the back of the beach runs a pleasant boulevard where you will find many of the town’s best restaurants and bars for eating and drinking out. There is a mixture of local tapas bars and more internationally-focused venues.
