In the southern part of the Valencian Community lies the Costa Blanca, one of the most beautiful coasts of the Mediterranean, which waters border the entire coast of the province of Alicante. The Costa Blanca features a beautiful contrast between sea and mountains that make it one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Spain.
The spectacular landscapes of the Costa Blanca are the main attraction for its visitors. Knowing this beautiful coastline closely means going into valleys such as the Vall d'Ebo, Vall d'Alcala, Vall de Gallinera, Gata de Gorgo or Vall de Laguart. Its mountain areas are a refuge for those who are passionate about hiking or caving.
The Costa Blanca is also noted for its traditional crafts, castles, historical monuments and museums. In this sense, it is imperative to visit Elche and its Arab baths of the XII century, Denia with its medieval castle, which was the summer resort of Ernest Hemingway in the 30s.
Calpe with its Iberian, Phoenician and Roman past; Benissa with its Lonja of the Constitution of the XV century; Aad of course, the capital, Alicante, with the medieval castle of Santa Barbara. Neither can we forget about Jávea or Altea.
Sport is very present throughout the Costa Blanca. On its fabulous white sand beaches you can practice a wide variety of water sports, as well as beach volleyball or beach soccer. While in the rural and mountain areas, mountain races, climbing, walking, mountain biking or adventure raiding are common.
Restaurants, bars and cafes abound all over the Costa Blanca for those who enjoy the day and the sun.
The Costa Blanca runs through 244 km. of wonderful beaches and coves, some hidden among cliffs, which are visited by thousands of tourists throughout the year. It is a family destination par excellence, perfect to enjoy its natural ecosystem and its places of rest, but also its cultural, historical and gastronomic richness.
