Location

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0086.JPG

Alicante is a well-known Spanish tourist destination with a population of approximately 330,000 inhabitants, located in the Valencia region. It is renowned for its long, wide, and well-maintained beaches, the bustling and charming city center, and Saint Barbara Castle, perched atop a mountain overlooking the historic town. Alicante is also a haven for sports enthusiasts, offering activities like beach volleyball, water sports, cycling, and free-climbing, among others.

We will stay in a hotel right next to San Juan beach in a quiet area of Alicante. This beautiful, pristine sandy beach stretches for an impressive 6.2 km and has an average width of 85 meters. A charming promenade lined with numerous cafes and bars runs alongside the beach.

Accommodation

We will stay and eat at the 3-star Castilla hotel, which is located 200 meters from the beach and 500 meters from the courts where we will be training. The hotel has an outdoor pool and a playground, and a grocery store, pharmacy, and laundry facilities are all nearby. Trams and buses stop right by the hotel. We will also have access to a meeting room for spending time together.

In 2023, the hotel underwent a major works, and all the rooms have been renovated. The hotel offers 2- and 3-person rooms, and cribs are available for infants. The rooms are equipped with air conditioning and TV. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. Each room has its own balcony. For bigger families there are connected rooms avaliable. Please contact us if you are interested in accommodation options for family bigger than 2+1.

We will have breakfast at the hotel. Our group will have its own separate area with special sports breakfasts that are enriched with nutrients. In comparison to the standard hotel offering, our breakfasts will include hot dishes (scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages) and vegetables.

Dining

https://kontrabeach.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/resturacja-Alicante-640x640.jpg

We will have breakfast at the hotel. For lunches and dinners we invite you to a small, family-run restaurant right next to the hotel, managed by Ana and Nacho! They specialize in local cuisine, and the meals are generous and diverse. Both for lunch and dinner, you will receive a starter, a main course, dessert, salad, bread, and a drink (water, Coca-Cola, beer, wine). There will also be options for individuals with special diets and food allergies.

The half-board (HB) offer of the camp includes breakfast at the hotel and lunches at the restaurant. The full-board (FB) offer includes breakfast at the hotel, as well as lunches and dinners at the restaurant.

If you’re wondering which option to choose, FB will be the easiest and economical. If you want to fully concentrate on training FB is the way to go. However, if you want to explore local restaurants, we recommend the HB option or the option with breakfast only.

Training

As some of you already know, training quality is our top priority. We welcome people of all skill levels. Training groups will be of 6 players (or 8 players for basic groups). We arrange the groups before the camp and make minor adjustments after the first sessions. Each group will have one court and one coach. Training units will last about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

If you have beach volleyball friends or a training group, we encourage you to sign up as a group or as a pair. If you are a solo traveler, we will place you in an appropriate training group. The courts will be free to use outside of training sessions, and some of the courts have lighting.

San Juan Beach is famous for its beach volleyball, so there will be many other players around us. This will be a great opportunity to play a game or tournament with people from outside the camp.

The training sessions will be conducted in English and through visual demonstrations!:) We will gradually reveal the camp coaches.

Solo travellers and beginners

DCIM100GOPROGOPR1334.JPG

Individuals, teams and complete or partial training groups, come to our camps. If you’re traveling alone and have any doubts about joining us, rest assured that we’ll find you a roommate for your accommodation and place you in a training group that matches your skill level (you’ll specify your level during the camp registration). Alternatively, you can opt for a single room. The beach volleyball community is known for its friendly, open-minded members, and if you come solo, you’ll leave with a bunch of new friends and a team for future camps!

Are you a complete beginner, worried about falling behind skill-wise? Don’t fret. We cater to individuals at every skill level, and many who once arrived at their first camp with no prior experience are now part of intermediate and advanced groups. Everyone has to start somewhere!

Our camps are suitable for both adults and minors (under parental supervision). Historically, we’ve had participants ranging from 15 to 60 years old, but we’re open to expanding these age ranges. So, if you’re concerned about not fitting in with the age group of other campers, there’s no need to worry.

The courts will also be available beyond the camp dates. We are planning a day off approximately in the middle of the camp.

For travel companions... and not only

Right next to the hotel, you’ll find the main attraction – the stunning San Juan Beach, which boasts a promenade extending over 6 kilometers!

Located just 1.5 kilometers from the hotel is a modern sports center (https://arenaalicante.com/). It offers an array of sports facilities, including two swimming pools, a SPA zone, gyms, a cycling area, boxing, tennis, and paddle courts, a football field, treadmills, and various other sports amenities. Moreover, there’s a children’s playroom available, providing you with some personal time.

Another exciting experience in Alicante is taking a tram ride. The tram line running along the northern coast offers scenic views of the sea and can transport you to several charming towns.

Travel companions will have the opportunity to participate in our yoga sessions with no extra cost.

On the free day, we recommend joining us for a tour of Alicante. First, under the guidance of local guides, we will explore the renowned market in Alicante. During the tour, you will have the chance to sample local delicacies and beverages! The refreshments will be so abundant that they will replace your lunch. Next, we will visit the Santa Barbara Castle, situated atop a hill in Alicante. There will also be some free time for souvenir shopping 🙂 We highly recommend participating in the excursion – it proved to be a great experience last year. The tour will last approximately 8 hours.

https://kontrabeach.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/Alicante-kids-club-640x512.jpg

The planned childcare hours are from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM and from 3:30 PM to 7:30 PM. The exact hours will depend on the training schedules. Your children will be looked after by an experienced individual with pedagogical qualifications. We have a variety of games and activities planned for the kids, including Spanish language learning, physical activities, and many other attractions! They will certainly not be bored, and you can train and rest peacefully. The children will be in a designated room in the hotel or on the hotel’s playground.

Please note that childcare services are available at an additional cost – please refer to our price list for details.

These are our coaches for the camp. We will keep presenting them gradually. But you can be sure we work only with experienced and good coaches
