Costa Blanca Hotels

Mini guide to Costa Blanca

     

Lying on the eastern coast of Spain, the Costa Blanca or 'white coast', attracts visitors with its sparkling turquoise waters and miles of white sandy beaches. A trip into the mountainous interior reveals a series of fascinating medieval towns and fortified villages which have been largely unaffected by modern development.

There are many beautiful towns and villages along the coast and inland, all offering something unique either in their culture, traditions, architecture or activities, and the best way to explore them is by car.

Benidorm, the Mediterranean's biggest resort, has everything you could possibly want from a Spanish holiday; good weather, plenty of nightlife, stunning beaches, a high level of accommodation and lots of attractions and activities. Alicante, situated on a bay between two capes, is the centre of the holiday resort region. Its historic central district is filled with Baroque buildings, bearing testimony to the city's past as a major seaport.

Benidorm's historic past is now hidden, but tucked into the Casco Antiguo section are the ruins of a castle built in the 14th century to fend off Berber pirates. Further along the coast, the peaceful town of Altea remains the least developed of the region, and has a long jetty and attractive walkway fronting a calm stretch of shoreline with pebbly beaches.

The white coast boasts a wide variety of leisure activities for all, including golfing on world class courses and sailing. Restaurants and accommodation are of the highest quality and the nightlife is legendary.

For an alternative to the beach, head west of Alicante to Europe's only palm forest, which forms a lush oasis around the city of Elche. For a great day out with the whole family, visit Spain's largest theme park at Terra Mitica, with its rides, shows, restaurants and shops.

The A7 motorway runs through the Costa Blanca and Barcelona. Alicante Airport receives regular flights from within Europe and is within a 1 hour drive of all towns.
