Costa Blanca

Stretching across over 100 kilometres of white sandy beaches from Valencia to Alicante on Spain’s east coast, the Costa Blanca is one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations, attracting over one million visitors each year. In the azure waters of the Mediterranean, you can enjoy watersports including sailing, windsurfing and diving. Away from the coast, this family-friendly resort offers gorgeous mountain vistas and delightful villages where you can sample delicious local wine and tapas, including the exquisite local rice dish, la olleta. For those who enjoy nightlife, the exuberant clubs and bars of the coastal towns will also allow your to dance the night away into the small hours.
