Over 200 km long, the Costa Blanca is a beautiful and most popular tourist destination in Europe. Besides the mild climate, the sandy beaches and warm clear waters, you can enjoy great cities such as Alicante or Benidorm, Javea or Moraira and many others. See for yourself:
The white sandy beaches on the Costa Blanca pretty much take over the scenery here, yet there are some fascinating places to visit inland as well. From a holiday home on the Costa Blanca you can get to see Gandia, with its beautiful beach as well as the 14th century castle it hosts, or the pretty Old Center in Javea. In Benidorm you should not miss as an attraction the Terra Mitica theme park, that takes you through the history of ancient civilizations, with its state of the art technology. Other places of interest may be of course Alicante, Cartagena and the ruins of the Castillo de la Conception, Murcia and so on.
When it comes to culture on the Costa Blanca we can mention quite a number of attractions and places that portray it in a most fascinating way. Benidorm, again, is for example the party center of this region, they say there are more than a thousand bars and clubs here, thus also many events and parties. You can also visit the nearby Valencia, a city much famed for its beautiful attractions and venues. The Denia Castle and marina are amazing attractions as well, and while on a holiday on the Costa Blanca you should not miss a show at the Benidorm Palace either. This part of Spain will fascinate everyone.
The Costa Blanca can actually be divided into two sceneries: the North part is a rather mountainous one with cliffs and beautiful beaches, while the South is more of an area of sandy dunes and palm groves, as well as again, beautiful beaches. From a holiday apartment on the Costa Blanca you can explore and experience a series of marvels, with a side of amazing natural “expressions” such as the Penon de Ifach rock in Calpe, rising from the sea. Pay a visit to the Fuentes de Algar/Algar Waterfalls natural park and bathe in the crystal clear water of the Algar Water Falls. By all means take your camera with you, you will wish to immortalize the beauty you see in the very least.
Being by the sea alone makes a holiday be very special, and if you add to this the pampering you can get from a local wellness and spa center, you're all set up for the best of times. On the Costa Blanca you shall find all sorts of facilities that redefine the meaning of relaxation, such as the Mountain Retreat Spain in Alicante, Benicaldea in Benidorm and many others. Massages and saunas, baths and whirlpools, beauty treatments and health treatments... it's all about the comfort on Costa Blanca.
By the sea and at the beach, in the mountains or in the modern resort-towns or fishing villages, entertainment and fun are never overrated on the Costa Blanca. Catamaran sailing in Altea can be paired with snorkeling and swimming, then you also have radio controlled sailing, you can go cycling with the entire family through orange, lemon and almond groves. Horse riding is also very popular, from a holiday villa on the Costa Blanca you have great opportunities for going horseback riding in the picturesque countryside. There are mountain walks you can take part in too, as well as Nordic Walking and many other activities.
A family holiday on Costa Blanca is one you will not soon forget, one that will offer great entertainment for both young and old. Take your kids to the Aitana Safari for example, where there are many animals and where you can admire a spectacular scenery. Lo Rufete Adventure Park is also an option, especially if you are an active family. There is paintball here, there is horse riding, kayaking, hiking, archery and many other entertainment venues. Many say that Aqualandia for example is the best water park in Spain, but you can also opt for Snorkel Safari in Santa Pola or maybe for a day out at the go-karts in Punta Prima. Your family holiday on Costa Blanca will be simply memorable.
The cuisine on Costa Blanca is one that will spoil your taste buds in a most unexpected way. From the famous Paella dish to the Turron (nougat) which comes in a variety of flavors, the food of the Costa Blanca is simply delicious. Try the Denia Prawns, the Arroz a banda, the Olla Churra stew, the Salazones, the All i pebre (eel stew), the Esgarrat (a cod dish), the sweet Bunuelo and so on. It's a culinary heaven you've reached on the Costa Blanca.
There are of course dog friendly beaches on the Costa Blanca, where you and your faithful friend can relax and enjoy the sea breeze. One example of such a place would be the Cala de Punta del Riu Sec, in El Campello, Alicante. You can opt for the mountains too, of course, there is hiking and cycling you can enjoy, there is sightseeing and maybe even a barbecue back at your dog friendly holiday home on the Costa Blanca.Points of interest, a “must see” list on Costa Blanca:
