“Costa Blanca” (White Coast).
Is the name of the 200 km long coastline . We find many wide sandy beaches as small coves and beautiful landscapes with palm groves, wetlands and several nature parks.
The climate, has over 300 days of sunshine every year and an annual average temperature of 18 degrees Celsius, with lots of tourist facilities that can be found along the coast and some of the most fantastic beaches in Europe.
The name “Costa Blanca” was invented in 1957 by the airline “British European Airways”, which advertised their flights from the UK to Spain with this slogan. The name will not be surprising for anyone who has seen an aerial view of the coast from the air: the white sand beaches, rock formations and small villages with whitewashed houses form an impressive contrast to the deep blue Mediterranean sea.
In the northern part of the coast there is Denia, Javea, Calpe, with its massive rock formations, in the south of it there are the artist’s paradise Altea, Albir, as well as the touristic center of the coast, Benidorm, with incredible leisure facilities and nightlife. Passing Cala Finestrat and El Campello the way leads on to the capital of the province, Alicante and furthe South of Alicante there are Santa Pola, Guardamar del Segura, Torrevieja and Pilar de Horadada. When hiring a car most of these towns and areas can be reached in just over one hour. Giving you lots to see as well as lots of sandy beaches.
