Costa Blanca: Introduction
The White Coast
One of Spain's most popular destinations, the Costa Blanca is today a thriving tourist destination thanks to its warm all year round Mediterranean climate and the region is home to Torrevieja, considered to be one of the healthiest places to live in Europe thanks to its clean air and breathtaking salt lakes. For those who like to wine and dine, Costa Blanca is a true gastronomic pleasure offering a range of cuisine both from Spain and the surrounding territories. Fish and seafood are particularly good, with the Costa Blanca also producing some of the most well known Spanish favorites including Paella and tapas.
Visitors have plenty to do whilst on holiday on the Costa Blanca, whether it’s relaxing on some of the award-winning beaches, hiking, scuba diving sailing or hitting one of the many spectacular golf courses in the sunshine. The kids will be entertained for hours with numerous theme parks whilst adults can relax and sit back at one of the many restaurants or indulge in a spa treatment at one of the luxury resorts. Transportation links are equally good which means that the Costa Blanca is easy to get to from other major cities in Spain thanks to Alicante’s airport, and the motorway network is also well connected if travelling by car.
