Costa Blanca is known as the white coast with more than 120 miles of beautiful white sandy beaches and lots of great resorts dotted along the coast. Alicante is the major and capital city of Costa Blanca and a great gateway to all of Costa Blanca’s top resorts.
Alicante is a bustling Mediterranean port with a splendid palm-lined promenade, lots of outdoor cafes and the spacious beach of Playa Postiguet. Highlights in the town include its imposing cliff-top Castillo de Santa Barbara, built on the site of a Carthaginian fort founded in the 3rd Century BC.
Probably the most famous holiday resort in the whole of Spain. Along the skyscraper-filled coast of Benidorm, there are many grand hotels and restaurants, as well as some fabulous attractions. With aquariums, zoos, theme parks and museums, you’ll never be bored on holidays to Benidorm.
Located on the southern end of Costa Blanca, Torrevieja has great beaches and a bustling nightlife. It’s also close to Terra Mitica, the biggest theme park in the Mediterranean.
