Easter Activities on the Costa Blanca

A few ideas for something to do in Spain this Easter.

There is so much to do anytime of the year on the Costa Blanca.

Easter means even more activities

The season is just about to kick off and the street sellers, karaoke champions and fairground attractions and all rearing to go.

The weather (so far) is excellent with sunny days and nice long evenings. The clocks went back last weekend and now the evening stretch a little further.

Golf

The Golfing rush has not materialized just yet, so there is literally no better time to get some great value, twilight golf in. Las Ramblas as always are doing terrific deals from as little as 30 euro twilight, and now with plenty of time to get a full 18 holes in. All the local courses though are making Easter golf very reasonable.

Beach Bars

The beach bars are all back and open in time for the Easter rush. Cabo Roig beach has live music on Sunday evenings and that’s going to attract a big crowd over the holiday weekend. La Zenia too is busy with pre-Easter holiday families soaking up the Spanish Sunshine. Its 20 degrees currently on the Costa Blanca!

Bars

Champions cup rugby weekend is not necessarily a big tradition in Spain but all the local bars are showing Rugby Union all weekend- you didn’t need an excuse anyway, but Leinster versus Saracens anyone?

Torrevieja

If you have never seen the Easter procession in Torrevieja, we highly recommend that you visit it this weekend. For those of you asking about the links with the white hats, fear not…. the long conical white hats worn by some of the members of Religious brotherhoods during Spain’s Easter celebrations are in no way related to the notorious gang. In fact these ominous looking costumes have originated in the hats worn by people found guilty of religious crime during the Spanish Inquisition.

In the parade they replicate the days where so called criminals would walk the streets in the distinctive hats while being mocked, “Game of Thrones” style, and insulted by the maddening crowds. By donning these face covering hats in Spain’s Easter celebrations, officially locals are also re-enacting Jesus´ road to Calvary. This part might be an add in to the story as the Spanish try to distance themselves from the less than proud past during the Inquisition.

Anyway, Torrevieja in general and specifically at the church in the center of town, is the place to be to, have some tapas and maybe even a glass of wine over Easter.
