All you need to know about the Costa Blanca!
Introduction The Costa Blanca – the ‘White Coast’ – was christened 2,500 years ago by Greek traders who founded the colony of Akra Leuka (White Headland) close to Alicante. The area is situated on Spain’s southeast coast and is undoubtedly one of Europe's most attractive destinations. It boasts an eclectic mix of bustling resorts and cities with thriving ports, sleepy towns, colourful fishing villages, a vast agricultural industry and long sandy beaches.
A land privileged not only by the weather but also for its conserved environment; fine golden sandy beaches contrasting with the beautiful landscape inland, where you will find green valleys of fertile orchards planted with almonds, oranges and olives plus mountains, which are home to many charming and quaint Mediterranean villages. There are vineyards, hidden upland streams and vistas of terracotta peaks all waiting to be discovered.
The southern Costa Blanca is famous throughout Spain for its seafood and fish, landed daily at the local ports of Torrevieja, Santa Pola and many others along the coast. A few kilometres away from the tourist centres of the Costa Blanca traditional Spain emerges. Historic towns are set amidst superb scenery and the rural pace of life remains undisturbed.
A few facts The population of the area is over 2.3M, mostly living in cities and suburbs There is one regional and several natural parks, including marine reserves within the area The southern part of the Costa Blanca enjoys 3,098 hours of sunshine per year The main fruit crops are oranges, lemons, cherries, peaches and nectarines. Almonds and olives are important Spanish exports within the area Shoe manufacture is an important source of revenue. Espuna, with a height of 1,579M is the area’s highest mountain The Segura, at 325KM is Spain’s 8th longest river, which flows through the cities of Murcia and Orihuela There are over 80 blue flag beaches within the Costa Blanca region – more than anywhere else in Europe.
What to do during your stay? If this is your first visit here then soak up the sun and the atmosphere, sparing perhaps a couple of days for exploring the beautiful inland mountains and one or two atmospheric towns. We are sure that once you have experienced the diversity of the region, you will want to return and gradually get to know this traditional Spanish area.
Beaches The Costa Blanca is renowned for its fine sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. There is virtually no such thing as a bad beach within this area of Spain, with most beaches accredited with the blue flag award. There are many beaches within easy reach of the villa – so many that you will be spoilt for choice. Listed below are just a few you might like to try. There are many more beaches that we have yet to discover – small beaches are often to be found down tracks signposted ‘Playa’ or ‘Cala’ – keep your eyes peeled! If you do find a beach that you particularly enjoy, then please let us know. All the beaches listed below were recipients of the prestigious blue flag award.
South of Torrevieja La Zenia. Playa Flamenca. Cabo Roig Campoamor Pilar De La Horada Torrevieja Torrevieja itself has three beaches (all blue flag accredited): El Cura Los Locas Los Naufragos There are within easy reach, however as with most popular resort beaches they can become busy during the peak season, particularly at weekends. Distance from the apartment is approximately 10km.
North of Torrevieja Guardamar Del Segura The beach at Guardamar is backed by a unique system of sand dunes, planted with natural pine, eucalyptus and dune-grass, running down to a long beach. Spend the day in the sun or the cool shade of the pines. At the southern end is El Moncayo and this is one of our favourites Playa del Postiguet, Alicante This beach in the city centre has excellent facilities, clear water and a marina. Why not team up a visit to this historic city with a dip in the sea?
Cities and Towns Listed below are just a few of the interesting places that are worth a visit. This list is by no means inclusive and there are many interesting places we have yet to discover – as before if there is anywhere you particularly enjoy then let us know.
Alicante Despite its many visitors, Alicante has managed to remain truly Spanish. It has everything you would expect of a truly Mediterranean city: a long and honourable history, venerable buildings, palm-lined avenues and a wonderful seafront, together with all the amenities of a thriving modern provincial centre. It is dominated by the ruins of its ancient castle, Castillo de Santa Barbara, which provides some fantastic views of the town and coastline. In addition to the Castillo, other places of interest are: Ayuntamiento – the twin towered town hall, which is one of Alicante’s finest baroque buildings. The Centre – consisting of old barrios and broad avenues of the 19th century city. Head for the Santa Cruz district to find some of the city’s oldest buildings. Concatedral de san Nicolas de Bari – this cathedral, built between 1616 and 1662, replaced the 13th century church that stood on the site of the city’s mosque. Parks – Alicante has two major parks, the Parque Tossal and El Palmeral. Both are laid with palms, trees and exotic plants and have good facilities for children.
Benidorm Only an hours drive away, Benidorm and the surrounding area is well worth a visit, particularly if you have children. It is the Mediterranean’s largest tourist resort, with over 4 million visitors annually and it represents a shining example of a well-organised mass tourist destination. Love it or hate it, no one can criticise the operation, which truly provides something for everyone. What to see: Iglesia de san Jaime – the parish church of Benidorm, beautifully sited on the town’s promontory overlooking the sea. For local people, the church is still very much the heart of the town. La Isla de Benidorm – a 20-minute boat trip across the bay takes you to this uninhabited island, which is ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving. You can also get there on a boat with a transparent hull so you can see underwater. Parque De L’Aiguera – a long sweep of promenades, fountains and greenery. Beaches – both the Playa De Levante and Playa De Poniente are pleasant beaches with clear blue waters, clean sand and good facilities.
Elche (Elx) Elche, which stands on the Vinalopo River, is surrounded by Europe’s largest palm forest, with more than 300,000 palms. It is Spain’s shoe manufacturing capital and one of the most historic towns in the region. The old town, on the east bank of the river, contains almost everything worth seeing, though some of the shoe factory outlets in the modern town might be worth a visit if you are looking for a bargain! Elche’s main sights are clustered around the baroque basilica of Santa Maria, whose blue tiled dome dominates the ancient town centre. There are a number of museums within this area, which may be of interest. From the centre of the city, a pleasant stroll leads through the old Moorish quarter to the church of San Jose, where there are frescoes and carvings. The palm forest is also worth a visit, particularly to view the Huerto del Cura, a botanical garden, which is the perfect place for a spot of shady relaxation after a few hours sight seeing. There are also some good markets at Elche – see the ‘Shopping’ section later on in this guide.
Guardamar del Segura The ancient settlement of Guardamar, at the mouth of the Segura River, is surrounded by citrus fruit orchards and fertile vegetable gardens and is a thriving small town and summer resort. The spring and summer see a string of festivals in the town and there is a lively market every Wednesday. In addition, Guardamar is surrounded by the Dunas, making its beaches some of the loveliest on the coast. See our section on beaches for further details.
