Costa Blanca Holidays - Award Winning Beaches
The Costa Blanca, in the Alicante region of Spain, begins near Dénia in the north and stretches about 125 miles along the Mediterranean coastline. It has become internationally renowned for Spanish summer holidays, particularly due to major destinations like Benidorm and Levante. These resorts are well-equipped to host international visitors, lie lose to grand, public beaches and are easily accessible from the international airport at Alicante.
Holidays on the Costa Blanca are perfect for tourists who want the convenience of a Spanish package holiday in a well-established region where the summer lasts for the majority of the year. Benidorm, in particular, has long been popular with British tourists as it’s packed with great shops, tapas bars and cabaret clubs, and it has four family oriented theme parks including Terra Mítica, Terra Natura, Aqualandia and Mundomar.
The steep cliffs and secret coves in the north of the Costa Blanca have attracted visitors throughout history. Besides exploring the sierras, lush valleys and whitewashed villages and ancient towns of this region, tourists can take the ferry from Dénia to Majorca or Ibiza to explore Spain’s outlying communities and enjoy the exciting nightlife of the Balearic Islands.
Great for families, pensioners and younger travellers, the Costa Blanca is packed with golf clubs and water parks and offers activities like mountain climbing, golfing, boat trips, jet skiing, sailing and scuba diving. Whether you are looking for adventures in the Costa Blanca mountains, such as Sierra Bernia, want to explore 16th century architecture, or you simply wish to soak up the sun on Blue Flag beaches, this is a coastal region where a plethora of opportunities await.
