Costa Blanca

About Costa Blanca

With its breezy weather Costa Blanca is one of Spain’s most popular holiday coasts. It has everything you have been dreaming of for a perfect holiday: sunshine, beautiful beaches and a vibrant social scene. You can choose from cosy coastal villages, beach resorts and big cities like Alicante. Calm sky, blue waters and fine white beaches: this is Costa Blanca!

Costa Blanca is definitely very active: you can find all sorts of water sports to try from jet skiing to sailing and paragliding. It is your place for the most exciting sea adventures! There are several marinas to discover and get into the local sea life, but you will have many other activity options like playing golf or horse riding on the coast. You simply cannot miss a day at the beach! In case you just want to relax on the beach with your favourite book, the 218 km long coastline has so many beaches, like for example the famous Levante and Poniente beaches.

Costa Blanca is a perfect choice if you want to enjoy the magnificent nature. Visit the beautiful Algar Waterfalls and take a refreshing dip in the clear waters. If you want a break from the city, you should book a boat trip to the wonderful Tabarca Island from the Torrevieja Marina each day. Explore this amazing gem, which once was a sanctuary for pirates! The best and most memorable way to get to know Costa Blanca is by a boat trip. You can swim in the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean and enjoy the amazing view of golden sandy beaches!




Tram line L9, which is rather a commuter train than a tramway, goes from Benidorm to Denia. From Benidorm to Alicante, take the tram L1.


As more companies can operate lines (even on the same route), if you wish to get to your destination quickly, look for an express bus! Though for smaller distances, it's still easier to choose tram L9.


From Alicante, you can travel for fixed rates to the nearby villages or to the airport, but inside of the city, the price shown by taximeter applies. Both local and regional companies allow call orders. Ask the reception of your hotel, which company they recommend!

Useful tips

If you travel with children and keen on water theme parks, look for accommodation in Benidorm, Torrevieja, Santa Pola, or La Zenia as these villages are close to such parks. In Benidorm, there are 4 different water parks.

In the salt pond of Las Salinas de Torrevieja, you can watch how salt is made in a natural way. The lake has a strange pink colour because of the presence of halobacteria. Despite it's not toxic, it is not allowed to go into the lake.

From the church called Parroquia Nuestra Senora del Consuelo, there is a spectacular view on the cities of Altea and Benidorm.
