The Costa Blanca is the tourist name used to describe the Spanish east coast that corresponds to the province of Alicante with its marvelous white coast. Located in between Valencia and Murcia. Benidorm is it´s most important holiday resort. The Costa Blanca is very well known and popular amongst North Europeans because its incredible climate and many hours of sun in both summer and winter. Around christmas the temperature easily rises up to 20° Celcius. The Costa Blanca has many curiosities and cultural excursions. Go inland and you will find a fantastic mount landscape with a authentic Spanish culture. A jeep safari in this area is certainly worth it. A visit to the city Alicante with its medieval architecture, splendid bldg. and squares, many shopping streets and the enormous medieval Santa Barbara castle is recommend. Also worth your visit are the palm forest in Elche which is located just as at south of Alicante, the water falls and moorish castle of Guadalest and the island Tabarca
The Costa Blanca offers you kinds of holidays and both just as interesting. The most typical and popular is the one on the coast (sun and beach) and the other, which is less know, is inland (mountain ranges and valleys). Thanks to the short distance between each other you won't have to choose only one. You can have both at the same time.
The Costa Blanca has more than 200 km. of Mediterranean beaches, isolated inlets and rocky cliffs. Within these surroundings you can enjoy the calm, warm and transparent waters with an incredible marine fauna. Also you can choose between many water sports (sailing, rowing, windsurfing...).
Inland of the Costa Blanca, there are panoramic views, quite extraordinary, from the valleys and mountain ranges, with pure, healthy air and total peace and tranquility. This area, less know and less visited by holidaymakers, has retained the traditions of the Costa Blanca unspoilt. If you are adventurous, you have many opportunities to enjoy sports such as bungy-jumping, climbing, and hill walking.
