Costa Blanca - Alicante Travel Information

From Valencia to Alicante, the Costa Blanca lingers on cream, smooth beaches, with a honey brown climate, soothing fields buttered with sunflower and gossamer green hills to provide an all year round haven for sun worshipping and carefree relaxation.

Costa Blanca

Costa Blanca encompasses the best of many worlds. Sensational cusine and balmy wines flavour Valencian pride, where meticulous attention to detail results in spectacular achievements.

Landscapes climb to soaring mountainous ranges and rocky crags leap from azure seas. Tides float with cork buoyed fishing nets slung over limpid lagoons.

There are haunted castles, numerous nature reserves, lost, veiled valleys ornamented with flamboyant flowers and between Alicante and Altea, long stretches of powder soft sand and interrupted by steep cliffs and cavernous coves, nestling next to cosmopolitan yaucht harbours.
