Costa Blanca Travel Information

An intoxicating mix of ancient and modern.  Great weather.  White sandy beaches.  A warm welcome.  No wonder the Costa Blanca or White Coast, is so popular with both Spaniards and overseas visitors.  

And while everyone comes for the great weather – it has one of the sunniest climates in Spain – the lovely white sand beaches, the exceptional food and the very warm welcome, everyone takes their holidays there differently.

You may choose fun, action-packed beach resorts like Benidorm, or opt for the tranquillity of staying in a luxury villa with private pool tucked away at the foot of the Montgo mountains – and yet still only 6km from the lovely family beach resort of Denia.  With a selection of villas, apartments and hotels there is a range of accommodation and resorts in the Costa Blanca to suit just about everyone.

Exploring
Travelling inland you can explore pine-covered mountains dotted with orange and olive orchards, picturesque villages and historic country towns like Xativa and Alcoy.  Discover the culture and history of the charming city of Valencia where the delicate ‘Lladro’ porcelain is produced and be sure to go into the cathedral, home to the chalice that Jesus is said to have drunk from at the Last Supper.  Visit Guadalest a Moorish fortress village perched high in the mountains and the caves of Benidoleig with their stalactites and stalagmites.

Relaxing
Relax on the beaches, try out the watersports and mountain-biking, play golf or boules, or take the kids to the theme parks.  The nightlife has something for everyone - from bingo and ballroom dancing to busy nightclubs.  There’s karaoke, discos, cabaret and the Benidorm Palace for a spectacular variety show.  No shortage of fun on the Costa Blanca!

Eating Out
You’ll find a wide variety of international cuisine here, including Italian and Indonesian restaurants in the Old Quarter of Benidorm.  Apart from the ubiquitous British fare, you can sample lots of local specialities including fantastic tapas, paella and arroz a banda, the ‘King of Rice’.

Shopping
Benidorm and Valencia, with their elegant and trendy boutiques, are great for shopping – look out for Lladro porcelain, jewellery and leatherware.
