The Costa Blanca or White Coast, extends along that section of the Mediterranean coast which corresponds to the province of Alicante, one of the countrys’ most important seaside resort areas, a picturesque city which retains the appeal of its relaxed, unhurried lifestyle. Located south of Costa Brava the area is home to many expats, holiday homes and wide range of accommodation from camping to luxury Five star resorts.
The extremely popular resort of Benidorm sits at the top of Costa Blanca approximately a 40 minute transfer from Alicante airport.
Further up that coast you will find the resorts of Denia, Javea, Altea, Calpe and Olivia. Head south towards Alicante and you will pass the resorts of Villajoyosa, Santa Pola, Guardamar, Torrevieja, Mar Menor and Murcia.
To the North, a curtain of mountains runs parallel to the sea, descending at times to form cliffs; to the South, a vast plain of sand patches, palm trees and salt deposits make up the backdrop for the beaches. The traveller can choose any of the corners of this coast, from the most bustling and cosmopolitan, Golf Holidays, two areas which still maintain their rural air beside the sea. From the valleys, which are covered with stepped orchards and keep alive its Moorish past, to the palm trees of unmistakable African origin, the horizons of the Costa Blanca offers the most varied attractions.

The climate offers variations from mild winters, average 12-14C to hot summers in excess of 30C. Rain is scarce, in comparison with the lowlands which surround Elche and Orihuela. The fields of almond trees, the vineyards, the fruit orchards and the magnificent palm trees form a vegetation which emphasises the oriental nature of the landscape.
