Costa Blanca

The Costa Blanca is located along the coastline of Alicante and south-eastern Spain. Its Mediterranean positioning allows an attractive, moderate climate as well as having a well developed tourist industry which makes it one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations all year round. The most well-known of these tourist destinations include Benidorm, Alicante and Dénia however what sets the Costa Blanca apart from other similar coastlines around Spain is that not only is it home to busier, livelier destinations such as Benidorm, but it also retains a number of rural, quiet locations for those holiday makers interested in a more relaxing getaway. Costa Blanca literally translates as 'White Coast' in English and it's not difficult to understand why, endless stretches of sandy beaches provide the perfect location for visitors who just want to relax and escape from their daily working lives. On the other hand, Costa Blanca has plenty to offer for those who aren't all about the sunbathing. Not only is Benidorm home to its own Mediterranean-style theme park Terra Mítica Theme Park where you can ride a giant rollercoaster or watch one of their many live action shows, but the coast is also the perfect location for many leisure activities and sports such as golf and boat excursions.

The terrain of the Costa Blanca itself is also varied, from rocky formations and golden sands to vineyards, vegetation and valleys; there is something to suit everyone's taste whether you prefer the unlimited services and attractions available at the main tourist beaches or the tranquillity of a hidden cove.
