Costa Blanca


The sea views and bright sunshine are there to greet you on the Costa Blanca. You can also take a stroll with the sounds of the gentle rippling waves in the background and the sea breeze brushing against your face. 

In the Costa Blanca in Alicante (Region of Valencia) you can enjoy the Mediterranean sea and the sun whilst you stay in comfortable resorts or sample haute cuisine in Michelin star restaurants. You can do this in charming seaside villages, in tranquil coves, in cities with vast beaches and seaside promenades, on nature breaks in the interior of the region...

A place for making memories

If life is a collection of memories, the Costa Blanca is a place for enjoying each and every moment and learning how good it feels to take things at a gentle pace. We’re talking about pleasant strolls through small seaside villages with well kept old quarters. Also, perhaps some relaxing afternoons enjoying the sun, with spectacular sea views, on the beach and in curious crags.Of course, with sumptuous grilled seafood on the coast or traditional paella dishes, raising a toast with the wonderful local wines and making culinary discoveries in international award-winning haute cuisine restaurants. Moments such as bathing in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean or beauty treatments in the region’s spa centres and resorts. These are some of the moments that await you on your holiday with towns such as Denia, Calpe, Altea, Javea, Villajoyosa and Teulada – Moraira. What’s more, the marinas in the tourist locations of Alicante, Benidorm and Torrevieja invite you to enjoy another marvellous moment: a trip on a sail boat or a recreational boat trip on the Mediterranean sea.

Culture, traditions and interior

The Costa Blanca offers much more than sun, the Mediterranean sea and good food. Alicante is a city with a great atmosphere, with a lively nightlife and interesting cultural offerings such as the Museum of Archaeology (MARQ) and the Castle of Santa Bárbara. From the castle you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view across the city and its port. For its part, Elche is home to the largest Palm Grove in Europe, which has been declared a World Heritage site. Around it, in Elche, white palm craftwork is a long-standing tradition. This and its popular shoe-making craft make it a great place to spend a couple of hours shopping, seeking out a unique, local souvenir to take home with you. This region is well known for its traditional celebrations. The main ones include the Bonfires of San Juan, in Alicante, and the Festival of Moors and Christians in Alcoy and Villajoyosa. These are the most iconic but they are celebrated to a greater or lesser extent all over the Costa Blanca. The interior of the Costa Blanca boasts some very pleasant surprises, such as small villages of Moorish origin with attractive castles, such as Guadalest; or special nature areas, such as the Sierra Mariola nature reserve, with its fields of aromatic grasses; or the Sierra de Maigmó mountain range with its spectacular views of the coast.
