Oliva Nova Golf, Spa & Beach Resort

Our campus is right on the beach and close to the mountains, which provides students with the opportunity to join in a number of activities such as diving, snorkeling, swimming, walking, cycling, orienteering or just getting a tan!

The 8km wide sandy beach is a few minutes walk away. The crystal clear waters, protected by natural dunes, have been awarded a Blue Flag by the European Community. You are 40 mins drive from Benidorm with Levante, Mundomar and Aqualandia beaches. The Terra Mitica, Guillermo Amor Municipal Stadium and Poniente Beach are a 20 minute car trip away.

Oliva Nova provides for interesting and varied evenings out for those who have the energy and inclination.
