The Costa Blanca
The Costa Blanca – the “White Coast” – with its wonderful beaches, is famous for its major tourist resorts attracting millions of tourists every year. The region extends from Denia and Javea in the north, two ancient and fascinating towns at the foot of the Montgo mountain, to Guardamar and Torrevieja in the south.
There are many world-class tourist attractions, including the Terra Mitica theme park in Benidorm, some of Europe’s largest marine parks, many excellent safari parks, waterfalls and beautiful beaches such as those at Javea, Altea and Calpe.
Javea, between Moraira and Denia, covers a large area with many attractive residential areas especially in the stunning Cabo de la Nao area.
The region has a wealth of rich cultural heritage with beautiful natural landscapes and fascinating towns. Leave the tourist resorts and you’ll find the real Spain, with ancient towns and villages steeped in history and with stunning scenery. Towns where traditions and cultures continue today just as they did hundreds of years ago.
The Northern Costa Blanca
The Northern Costa Blanca is green all year round, in contrast to the south, and has wonderful mountain vistas reminiscent of Scotland. The pretty valleys such as the increasingly popular Jalon Valley, are famous for their wine.
The coast is dotted with unspoilt Spanish villages and resorts, and has many excellent golf courses. Benidorm, Alicante and Valencia offer outstanding shopping with dozens of boutiques, shopping malls and pedestrian shopping areas. Valencia also has superb museums, science parks and an aquarium, and many other public attractions places of historical interest.
The area is very accessible with two international airports. This, coupled with a high standard of international schooling at affordable prices, is making the area even more attractive for northern Europeans to live and enjoy vacations.
