The Costa Blanca offers one of the best and most extensive ranges of tourist amenities in Spain.
It's excellent climate, blue flag beaches, championship golf courses and cultural richness offers something for everyone to enjoy. The Costa Blanca attractions have been further enhanced by the opening of Terra Mitica near Benidorm, one of the most modern and attractive theme parks in Europe.
The Costa Blanca climate is ideal for year round golf and other sports including: tennis, swimming, sailing, water skiing, riding, go-karts, bowling greens and even hot air ballooning . In the evenings there is plenty of nightlife to choose from - whether it’s a quiet meal in a delightful coastal restaurant or a memorable evening of entertainment.
The southern Costa Blanca is mostly flat with fine sandy beaches, palm trees and salt lakes. The south is much drier and more typical of what a person who has never visited Spain would expect to see.
It has something for everyone from tiny rural inland villages to cosmopolitan tourist resorts on the coast such as Benidorm. Alicante is a large vibrant town with a large marina and major department stores such as El Corte Ingles, where you can purchase designer clothes etc - definitely not to be missed.
The summers are dry and hot, the winters very mild - you can really be only one place: The Costa Blanca.
It is claimed the area has more than 320 days a year of bright sunshine - not many holiday destinations can claim that and be so simple to travel to.
The climate within Torrevieja and Punta Prima is generally slightly more agreeable than the rest of the Costa Blanca. This is because the mountains are farther away from the coast and this generates a pleasant breeze in the heat of the day. The Torrevieja Salt lakes help to make the area one of the healthiest places in Europe (according to the World Health Organization).
Average temperatures range from approximately 18 deg C in January to 32 deg C in midsummer. It is ideal for golfing breaks throughout the winter period, with an almost guaranteed supply of sunshine all year around.
Several blue flag beaches are within a short drive - as are all the local amenities. There are Bars and Restaurants which are only a short walk away.
The nearest beaches are only 2 minutes walk away and like many others in the area is comprised of small unspoilt coves with facilities on the beach or nearby. In addition to this there is an impressive promenade being built.
