Costa Blanca, in the Province of Alicante - Spain's 'White Coast'

Guadalest - The Eagle's NestThe Costa Blanca corresponds to the coastline of the Province of Alicante, which itself is part of the region of the Community of Valencia (one of 17 such regions in Spain). With its ragged mountainous interior and miles of glorious sandy beaches and subtropical vegetation this is one of the most attractive and popular regions of Spain for visitors. See our sister site for an extensive list of hotels in Costa Blanca.

The city of Alicante is a great starting point from which to explore the many highlights which the Costa Blanca has to offer.

There are theme parks, safari parks, nature reserves, enchanting villages, caves, waterfalls, lively markets and many exciting fiestas with fireworks and fancy dress; the golf courses are internationally-renowned and there's watersports galore... so get out-and-about around the Costa Blanca and be guaranteed a fabulous time!

Fiestas celebrated in the Costa Blanca

At first glance the Costa Blanca might seem rather big and difficult to get around, especially if you don't have a car; but don't despair, because every place of interest can be easily and cheaply visited using public transport. Furthermore, none of the following attractions are more than a 90 minute drive away - most are easily reachable within an hour!
