Go to St Feliu de Guixols on the Costa Brava. It's a lovely seaside town where most of the holiday makers are Spanish. There are some lovely holiday homes there and some nice hotels.

camera if you want a family holiday maybe you would want somewhere where English is widely spoken and UK taste are taken into consideration.
Javea is nice just north of Denia, a mix of tourist, no big hotels along the sea front, so lots of villa people. Its a neighbouring town of Denia.

Also further north is Gandia, mostly visited by Spanish and very nice too. Most fantastic beach I have been to. Gandia is long way from Alicante airport, may be closer to Valencia.

I wouldnt stay in Altea or further south, visited and didnt like it. But south is Benidorm is further South and also worth a day visit to Aqualandia Water Theme Park.

I think Spain is a good choice for your first trip, but it is so large you may have to do some research on tinternet to find whats good for you.

FWIW i love south of France too.
