Famed for its gorgeous white beaches, the Costa Blanca or White Coast is one of Spain's top tourist destinations. It covers about 200 kilometres of the south east coast of mainland Spain, running from Gandia in the North to Murcia in the South. The weather and climate is usually excellent. The Costa Blanca enjoys more than 2,800 hours of sunshine each year with an average annual temperature of 19.3 degrees Celsius. Because the weather and climate on the Costa Blanca is so hot and reliable, the Costa Blanca has become a world-renowned tourist destination for sun lovers. The Costa Blanca enjoys approximately 325 sunny days each year.
Many people are also choosing to live on the Costa Blanca due to the excellent all-year round weather conditions.
Alicante is situated to the south of Benidorm and has the main airport on the Costa Blanca so you will most likely be arriving at Alicante airport if you are visiting the Costa Blanca on holiday.
Los Montesinos is situated between the resorts of Guardamar and Torrevieja behind the salt lakes. Due to these salt lakes, (known as Laguna Salada de Torrevieja and Laguna Salada de la Mata), the World Health Organisation regards this as one of the three top places in the world for good health.The nearby nature reserves and their lakes are perfect for bird watching, walking, cycling and horse riding. Torremendo is a mountain lake nearby where you can swim and fish.
Los Montesinos is a small, friendly typically Spanish town that is charming, quiet and relaxing. The town square is surrounded by cafes & bars and is the centre of town life. It has a variety of shops including bakeries, butchers, a pharmacy, post office, newspapers and a tabac for stamps and smoking requirements.
The closest beach is that of Guardamar a ten minute drive away from Los Montesinos. From north to south, the beaches of Guardamar are Los Tusales Beach which is for nude bathing, Los Viveros Beach, De la Babilònia Beach, Playa Centro, La Roqueta Beach, El Moncayo Beach, Playa del Campo and Les Ortigues Beach. All the beaches are golden sandy beaches with sand dunes and are surrounded by pine, palm and eucalyptus trees.Guardamar offers you every possible sea sport such as sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing, underwater diving, canoeing, jet skiing
Also worth a visit are Torrevieja beaches and La Zenia beaches. My favourite is the beach at La Marina.
Torrevieja is a fifteen minute drive and is known for its superb promenade, restaurants, nightlife, and the Habaneras shopping centre. There is also a very good market every Friday.
There are many street markets in the area, taking place on most days. Most have places to eat and drink and can make an enjoyable morning out. To be recomended are those at San Miguel de Salinas and also at Guardamar on Wednesday.
There are many fiestas (festivals) held here but the major ones worth noting are:
Day of Segregation in July. Virgen de Pilar in October. Day of Saint Cecilia in November.
The Torrevija area is well served with excellant golf courses. The nearest golf course to Los Montesinos is “La Finca” five minutes away by car which is considered to be one of the best on the southern Costa Blanca. There are also golf courses at Campoamor and Villamartin.
There are three water parks in the area, one near Quesada (about 3km away), one in La Sista (small and family orientated) and a large park with wave pool in Torrevieja (Aquapolis).
Horse riding is available at El Rancho which is about 4km south of Los Montesinos and they also have a large pool with poolside restaurant.
Bicycle hire is widely available. There is a Go Karting track at Punta Prima which is about 20 minutes away and also Quad biking at a nearby site.
