Costa Blanca North is one of the most popular and breathtaking regions in Spain. With around 300 days of sunshine each year, the golden beaches and crystal clear Mediterranean waters provide a lifestyle that is near perfect. The area stretches over 200 kilometres from Alicante in the South to Valencia in the North, and is stunningly beautiful. It is a place full of surprises, where the traditional and the modern co-exist in comfortable harmony. Rugged coves and sheltered beaches are home to both quaint old harbours and modern marinas; the wonderfully situated towns of Calpe, Denia, Javea, altea, Benidorm and Oliva are pleasantly typical of the area and you will find many attractive developments there to catch your eye.
Costa Blanca North is simply the perfect backdrop to live in the sun. The hot summers and mild winters mean you can be outdoors all year. The climate has a reputation for alleviating health problems such as rheumatism, asthma and allergies. There is certainly no shortage of things to do. If you are not beachcombing, swimming or sailing, you can take a trip inland to one of the sleepy villages, untouched by time. Visit Castalla with its medieval castle and narrow, twisting centuries-old streets. Enjoy spectacular views at Lbi, Tiba and Xixona, or at the historic village of Guadalest, perched high above the sea.
For the golfers this is paradise you will find everything from challenging nine to 18-hole links, and in Alicante region alone, you could play a different course every month of the year!
The rich culture is evident everywhere. Time-honoured customs and traditions are kept alive, not least as a result of the festival nature and hospitality of the locals. Colourful, exuberant fiestas; processions, floats and fireworks - every village pays tribute to its past in the most colourful ways. There is always something to celebrate, enabling you to be part of the vitality and delights of the region.
