Costa Blanca Holidays, Spain
Measuring over 200 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline in the province of Alicante in Spain is Costa Blanca or White Coast. It was a moniker given to the area by the British European Airways in 1957 when they started their air service between London and Valencia. Costa Blanca has become one of Spain's most visited holiday destinations thanks to a lively social scene and beaches.

Picturesque alleyways, a historic centre, a
thriving nightlife and miles upon miles of
golden beaches are what best describes
Not only are beaches the most wonderful attraction in this area, so too are the mountains that loom over the Mediterranean. Add to this some fruit and palm groves and you've got yourself a slice of beach heaven.
Costa Blanca stretches from Denia – a town in the north – until Pilar de Horadada in the south. The coastline covers major tourist destinations such as Alicante, Benidorm Denia, La Zenia and Xabia.
Benidorm has been a long-time favourite thanks to wonderful combination of white sand that stretches to 4 miles and a skyline comprised of skyscrapers. The area is also home to some family-friendly attractions such as the Terra Mitica and Aqualandia theme parks. Benidorm also knows how to party as it has an array of bars and discos that put on parties and host international DJs.
Alicante also offers something special with its hilltop castle and boutiques. The town is also home to several museums, including the award-winning Archaeological Museum of Alicante.
Also hidden among the sprawl of resorts are some surviving Old Town Places. These include Xabia and Altea.
Whether you enjoy the beach or want to go inland, the more than 200 kilometres covered by Costa Blanca is more than enough to satiate your thirst for discovery.
