“Unforgettable beaches and coves.”
One of Spain's most popular holiday regions has its name for a reason. The whitewashed houses, typical for this region, and the fine sandy beach reflect the sunlight particularly intensely.
Along the Costa Blanca you will experience moments when you feel all your desires fulfilled - often and in many places. Perhaps such a moment occurs during a hike at sunset, when the "weak and modest light", in the words of Gabriel Miró, captures the summit of the Sierra de Aitana. Perhaps it happens while lazing on one of the 170 beaches and coves that line the coast of the blue Mediterranean. The magic can also be encountered on a pleasure boat while crossing the sea, when you feel the east wind or the Garbí filling its sails, when using rhythmic power while paddling a kayak or when finishing a game on one of the 21 golf courses in the province, which enjoys sunshine three hundred days a year.
But sometimes the magic happens quite unexpectedly during small everyday happenings. Sometimes one gets the feeling that time is standing still in a street café of the Isla de Tabarca after a dip in the sea reserve there.
It can also happen during a stroll through beautiful old towns, surmounted by stone fortresses, that can be found everywhere in the many municipalities of the province, and which have left their mark on the history and culture of the area. There, where the Arab legacy has long been an observer of an historical development that has left its splendour in architecture and urban planning.
The discovery of the unanticipated can be found on the Costa Blanca just around every street corner. You just have to let yourself drift!
