Costa Blanca, Spain

Things to do - general

The 200-km-long Costa Blanca (“white coast”) is one of the most attractive stretches of coastline in Spain, with everything from small fishing villages to castles to large towns filled with skyscrapers. The area is known for its beautiful beaches and clear Mediterranean waters, as well as its well-developed tourist industry capable of catering to all kinds of travellers.

From the narrow streets of Denia to the bustling rush of Benidorm to the historic port city of Alicante, The Costa Blanca is a varied area with lots to see and do all year long. If you want to explore inland, visit Elche to see Europe’s largest palm grove, which was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Then, head up the coast to Calp, to try some local rice and seafood dishes, or have a swim in the crystal-clear waters near Jávea before visiting Peñón de Ifach, the highest cliff on the Mediterranean.

If you’re looking for an active vacation, the Costa Blanca is also known for its great outdoor rock climbing, thanks to its many limestone crags and good weather conditions. There are also hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails and opportunities for canyoning, paragliding, and bungee jumping. If you’re looking for water sports, the coast’s 25 nautical clubs are a great place to try sailing, kayaking, diving, windsurfing, water skiing, and lots more.
