Costa Blanca literally means “White Coast”.
The Costa Blanca is a 200-kilometer (120-mile) stretch of Mediterranean coastline in Spain’s Alicante province, on the country’s southeast coast. It spans from Dénia in the north, where the Costa del Azahar begins, to just above Cartagena in the south, where the Costa Cálida begins. The Costa Blanca is a popular tourist destination in Europe. The ‘White Coast’ is one of Spain’s liveliest tourist zones, thanks to its sunny, dry climate, brilliant light, and miles of fine, sandy beaches and temperate water. Unspoilt sandy beaches, hidden coves, cliffs, and headlands can still be found along the Costa Blanca. El Trenet is a local train service that operates between Alicante and Valencia.
