All our Costa Blanca collections:
Despite being popular, the Costa Blanca seems to have enough beautiful white coastline to go around. About 200kms worth. And most of the best places to stay in the Costa Blanca are well situated to make the most of this. So even in peak season you can find a peaceful cove, if that's your preference. But of course you can also find yourself a party beach! Stay in a lively resort, a mid-sized town or a small village.
This sunny strip of Mediterranean coast at the bottom of Spain has long been one of Europe's best known beach getaways. Which shows in the crazy wealth of things you can do here. As well as every watersport under the sun, there's also everything from world class golf courses to bungee jumping. Plus plenty of choice when it comes to eating and nightlife, and masses of colourful local events to keep you entertained.
With multiple international airports serving the region the Costa Blanca is both your sunny party capital, and an easy place to fly and flop. Southern Costa Blanca is where you can find the biggest resorts, Benidorm, Calpe, ex-pat favourite Torrevieja. And Alicante, which offers more of a beach-side city break experience. While the northern coastline is dotted with smaller towns and villages
If your aim is to be in Costa Blanca for 'the season' BOOK AHEAD, but if you're not fussed about visiting in July or August you'll find fewer accommodation options - not everywhere stays open all year - but much lower prices. And this sunny part of Span makes a excellent base for exploring inland, where you'll find traditional style villages hardly touched by tourism.
La Madrugada offers reliable sunshine and sea views a short distance from the coast, in a town with a decent market and plenty of nice local scenery.
If you're travelling with kids try Aqualandia, Europe's largest water park, of big brash Terra Mitica, Benidorm's thumping theme park. Or for the whole family, maybe a sailing day trip or two? Or a visit to Terra Natura, a cross between a zoo and a theme park.
Not all of the old fishing village charm has been concreted over. There are still a few small pockets of lovely 'old town' to be discovered. If that's what you're looking for try Javea of Altea. If you're looking for a hidden paradise seek out Granadella Beach, just outside Javea. And if you're looking for a picturesque, traditional mountain village visit Gaudalest, 30mins drive from Altea.
Alicante is more than just a gateway to the coastline, it's a pretty dynamic regional capital, with a very Spanish feel. Most of the interesting sights are found in the charming old town - the 16th Century castle of Santa Barbara, the Museum of Contemporary Arts, and some excellent restaurants - so pop in for a day trip?
