Translated as the ‘white coast’, this 200 km stretch of gleaming white sands snuggling against the Mediterranean Sea on Spain’s south-eastern corner has been one of the best-loved holiday destinations for decades. This bustling Spanish beach resort has a plethora of things to see and do. The fine sandy beaches and balmy climate are the main draws, but holidays to Costa Blanca also offer lots of family fun, plus great nightlife and opportunities for party lovers! Depending on your tastes, there is a resort here to suit everyone. For buzzing Blue Flag beaches and an exciting city vibe, go to Benidorm, dotted with bustling hotels, bars and nightclubs. The resort also has plenty of attractions for tiny tots, such as Aqualandia, Terra Mitica and Terra Natura fun parks. If you're looking to liven things up, you'll find a variety of bars and nightclubs in Alicante, whereas those seeking traditional Spanish charm on their Costa Blanca holidays can visit the laid-back resorts of Javea, Moraira, Altea and Denia.
Enjoying a warm climate, Costa Blanca is an ideal summer holiday destination to visit during July and August, when the temperature can go up to 27-30°C. But if you want to indulge in secluded beaches and spacious streets, choose to travel in the shoulder months of May, June or September. Costa Blanca is just 3-4 hours away from popular Barcelona, which makes for a perfect day trip. From family-friendly holidays to group getaways, Costa Blanca holidays can be as full-on or as chilled-out as you wish.
