Over 218 kilometres of coastline packed with soft sand beaches washed by calm waters, 2,800 hours of sunshine per year, a privileged climate and a warm sea have been the main attractions for our millions of visitors for decades. Over time, the development of modern tourist infrastructure and communications routes has made it easier to reach the Costa Blanca. The landscape is not just defined by the sea, but also by the mountains that overlook it. Alicante is the second most mountainous province in Spain and it is here that we see the grandeur of the Mediterranean landscape. From valleys that are home to crops grown on terraces originally created by the Moors to a horizon packed with oaks, pines and carob trees perfumed by a wide variety of aromatic plants. Those who love mountains and hiking are sure to enjoy the well-signed paths that run through our inland districts. In the south, the mountains give way to palm groves and the smallholdings stretch as far as the eye can see.
Our region is also dotted with archaeological sites that give some idea of the rich history of an area that has been populated for thousands of years. Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans and Muslims have all left their mark and the remains give us a glimpse of how they lived. Whether on the coast or inland, you’ll be able to discover our rich local dishes and the quality wines from our vineyards.
If you want, you can visit tiny villages hidden among the mountains and modern coastal towns with a lively nightlife. Casino Mediterraneo de Alicante is perfect for games of chance lovers. Also, you can enjoy the famous and so traditional bullfights in Plaza De Toros de Alicante.
History and monuments mark the landscape of our inland villages and towns. Along the coast there are numerous marinas and countless facilities to allow you to enjoy the sea and water sports.
Golf lovers know that our golf courses have facilities that are second to none. Access to the Costa Blanca is very easy and confortable, by air, due to International Airport El Altet in Alicante, or by sea, by numerous seaports.
We aim to ensure that all travellers find what they are looking for on the Costa Blanca and that’s what we strive towards each and every day.
