Costa Blanca has a reputation as being paradise!. Coupled with the mildest of winter climates and excellent sporting and leisure facilities the Costa Blanca is a prime location. In the Southern Costa Blanca, Torrevieja is the main town where the vast majority of beaches have been awarded the EEC Blue Flag Award for cleanliness and rightly so, an ideal place for a relaxing break. From the shallow lagoons and extensive sand dunes of the south to the deeply indented rocky coves and bays of the north, this privileged corner of Spain offers everything that has made this country so highly favoured.
The clear blue waters and stunning underwater scenery make it a diver's paradise, while the setting of the sun, as it bathes sea, sky and land in a rich golden glow, is an experience not easily forgotten. Further south, the cliffs are a creamy white tint from which the Costa Blanca (white coast) derives its name. Covered with Mediterranean scrub and coastal pine, this is an area whose romantic lighthouses and ancient ruins encapsulate the history and soul of the Mediterranean. While the coast boasts excellent transport facilities of motorways, railways, ferry ports and 3 international airports, Costa Blanca is one of the most stunning and unspoilt areas in Europe. With average temperatures between 18 & 28 degrees the climate is not only healthy-rated one of the best by the World Health Organisation- but also made just for you, with health and fitness spas, 19 golf courses and every watersport imaginable.More Info
