About the Costa Blanca

(x0)  | By: MartinR | 2,793 Views | 6 Replies

Costa Blanca, the 'white coast' is mainland Spain's most popular year-round holiday area, occupying a prime stretch of Spain?s Mediterranean coastline. Running along the province of Alicante, it can be divided into two clearly distinct areas of scenery: to the North, a curtain of mountains running closely parallel to the sea, dropping away to form sheer cliffs and secluded pebble coves: to the South, a vast plain of sands, dunes, palm groves and saltpans make up a backdrop for the beaches. The 'white coast' has many different attractions, from the busy tourist packed Benidorm, to the elegant provincial capital Alicante and includes some fabulous well-developed resorts stretching the length of the coast.

Costa Blanca enjoys a perfect Mediterranean climate boasting warmer winters than the Costa Brava, low rainfall and fantastic summers with on average 300 days of sunshine each year with temperatures touching 40 degrees in July and August.

Costa Blanca is great place to spend your holidays. Best thing to do is just to hire a car and drive along the coast and experience beautiful cities like Alicante, Benidorm, Calpe and other small towns!

We have some lovely apartments and townhouses for rental on the Southern Costa Blanca (Torrevieja and Orihuela Costa), all at reasonable prices. So if you are wanting to stay in your own property, rather than a hotel whilst topping up your tan, please get in touch.
