The stunning Costa Blanca, situated between the two other well-known areas of Costa Brava to the north and Costa del Sol in the south, is within the region of Valencia with the warm Mediterranean on its shores.
Known as the 'White Coast', Costa Blanca has been a favourite area for tourists for many years. Encircled by the beautiful Crevillente mountain range to the west and the Mediterranean Sea on its eastern shores Costa Blanca's superb weather of 320 days of sunshine creates high summer temperatures with winter temperatures in the high teens and twenties.
Costa Blanca is full of history from the El Barrio (Old Moorish Town) in Alicante to the naval city of Cartegena with wonderful Churches and historic sites.
Beaches and coves stretch from Alicante to Cartegena many being blue flag and swept clean daily.
ALICANTE is 40 minutes drive away and with its beautiful palm-lined boulevard and pleasant shopping street is one of the most well-known cities on the Costa-Blanca. Costa Blanca owes its name to Greek traders who founded the colony Akra Leuka (blank foothill) about 2500 years ago, not far from where Alicante now is. Approximately 400 years later the Romans called the province capital Lucentum (city of lights) and the characters A.L and L.A (Lucentum Alicante) can been seen on the flag of Alicante.
The surrounding countryside offers visitors, mountains, forests and castles towering on hilltops and of course there are also the numerous beaches and marinas.
Alicante is the capital of the province. It is a vibrant city with a modern harbour and marina complex surrounded by excellent restaurants and bars. It boasts everything one would expect of a big city from its small pavement cafes to the extensive shopping possibilities. There is a very 'Valencian style' about the city.
The Barro Santa Cruz – the renowned old Moorish quarter – gives the tourist an opportunity to see Spain away from the beaches and bars and a feeling of life as it may have been in history.
The Castle of Santa Barbara – the 16th century military fort- perches 180 metres above the city and offers magnificent views of the surrounding area together with the possibility to visit it's small yet impressive museum.
TORREVIEJA is a typical and genuine Spanish town with narrow alleys, louvered windows and traditional shops to attract the many tourists who visit the area.

Each Friday sees the centre of Torrevieja become a colourful market place where a superb selection of Spanish handicrafts, leather jackets, gloves, bags, baskets, shoes, pottery, textiles and souvenirs is available at excellent prices.
