Costa Blanca

More than meets the eye

With its long strip of sand – stretching from Valencia to Murcia – the Costa Blanca certainly lives up to its ‘White Coast’ name. So it’s no wonder it’s one of Europe’s most popular holiday spots. The region is most famous for its lively resorts, mega theme parks and neon nightlife. But look at the bigger picture and you’ll find rugged mountains, pine forests and sleepy towns where time stands still.

Best of both worlds

If loud and lively floats your boat, head for Benidorm. Yes, buzzing bars, Brit-style pubs and theme parks rule supreme here, but you don’t have to go far to find its Blue Flag beaches. Plus, with its winding cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings, the old town is like an oasis of old-world charm in the middle of the modern resorts.

Down-tempo towns

For something that turns the volume down a notch, try day-tripping to Denia. It's a 40-minute drive from Benidorm, andwith its Moorish castle and old quarter, it’s a taste of traditional Spain. On the flip-side, though, it’s home to cosmopolitan shops, pristine beaches and a smart marina.
