Costa Blanca Means White Coast

Jan 16, 2020 | Costa Blanca Spain | 0 comments

Costa Blanca literally means “White Coast”.

The Costa Blanca is over 200 kilometres (120 mi) of Mediterranean coastline in the Alicante province, on the southeastern coast of Spain. It extends from the town of Dénia to the north, beyond which lies the Costa del Azahar to just above Cartagena in the south, beyond which lies the Costa Cálida. Costa Blanca is a popular destination for European tourists. The hot, dry climate, brilliant light and miles of fine, sandy beaches and temperate water make the ‘White Coast’ one of Spain’s liveliest tourist zones. Hidden along the Costa Blanca there are still unspoilt sandy beaches, hidden coves, cliffs and headlands to be found. A local train service, El Trenet, that runs between Alicante and Dénia, helps give access to quieter spots.

The Costa Blanca – Weather

The Costa Blanca enjoys a healthy micro-climate and fantastic weather all year round. The northern Costa Blanca is more mountainous than the southern areas. As a result, the north tends to be much cooler in winter.
