It’s not only the perfect weather that attracts people from other areas of Spain and from all over the world to the Costa Blanca. The sea, beaches, beautiful nature of its mountains and the many leisure possibilities are also an important reasons why people decide to make this area their home.
The Costa Blanca has also been a holiday favourite for many years. The coast is lined with many beautiful ‘blue flag’ beaches, most of which have lifeguards on duty during the high seasons, offering facilities like beach bars and restaurants, toilets, showers, children’s play areas and even crèches.

The coastline is dotted with marinas and Alicante has an international harbour from where you can take boat trips to the island of Tabarca, which was fortified and settled in the 18th century as a prison island for Genoese captives. At Torrevieja harbour, an ingenious system of underground conveyor belts delivers salt to waiting cargo ships, straight from the salt processing plant on the salt flats.
