The Costa Blanca
The Costa Blanca, literally meaning “White Coast”) is over 200 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline in the Alicante province, on the southeastern coast of Spain. It extends from the town of Dénia in the north, beyond which lies the Costa Cálida. The Costa Blanca has a flourishing tourism industry and is a popular year round destination for British and German tourists.
Many of the towns in the Costa Blanca have thriving markets, great sports facilities and nearby golden beaches and as you would expect from Spain, they are incredibly family friendly. Spain is known globally for golf and there are over 30 courses to choose from in the area; the town Villamartin was actually built around two championship golf courses.
History abounds with 200 plus castles in the region, most in ruin. There are world-renowned cave paintings and getting to the Costa is easy via the airport in Almeria.
