There are long stretches of sandy beaches for sun lovers and rocky beaches where you can snorkel and dive to your heart’s content.
As well as its wonderful coastline, the Costa Blanca also has beautiful inland landscapes. These are closely linked to a lifestyle rooted in country life, industrial development and traditional festivals.
The most important towns on the Costa Blanca are:
Denia, Javea, Moraira/Teulada, Benissa, Calpe, Altea, Benidorm, Villajoyosa, Alicante, Guardamar, Santa-Pola and Torrevieja.
To the north the Costa Blanca borders the Costa Valencia and to the south the Costa Cálida.
The Costa Blanca, or "White Coast", has long been a favorite spot among foreign holidaymakers. Corresponding roughly to the modern province of Alicante, this region is made up of two clearly differentiated scenic areas:
- To the north, a curtain of mountains runs parallel to the sea, descending at times to form cliffs
- To the south a vast plain of sand patches, palm trees and salt deposits make up the back-drop for beaches that seem to stretch on forever.
This part of the Mediterranean is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and picturesque of all Spanish Costas.
