Stretching from the Gulf of Valencia to Cabo de Palos, Costa Blanca is for the most part, flat and sandy, and is sprinkled with many beaches and holiday resorts from lively Benidorm to the more typical resorts of Denia, Javea, Moraira and Calpe. Residents and holidaymakers can enjoy this region year round because of its extremely mild climate. From Dénia to Pilar de la Horadada, from Orihuela to the valleys of the Marina Alta, including Villena and Alcoi, the Mediterranean breeze fills this land with light, enveloping the entire region in its exceptionally attractive climate. With complete tourist facilities, spectacular scenery and an extensive culinary palette, with exciting popular festivities, and sports, cultural and entertainment opportunities galore, the Costa Blanca is one of the most cosmopolitan sites in Europe, where cultures from abroad fuse with local traditions in perfect harmony.

Denia is a magical place full of life, tradition and vibrant colour, especially during one of its many fiestas like "Las Fallas" or local celebrations like "Bous a la Mar" (Bulls in the Sea). The town is situated at the foot of the majestic Montgó mountain between Valencia and Alicante and has officially been recognised as one of the worlds healthiest places. Denia is a town which can offer something for everyone, it has spectacular blue flag sandy beaches and rocky coves, five 18 hole golf courses, and more fiestas per year than any other Spanish town.
Las Marinas situated just north of the town has sandy beaches stretching to over 15km offers an ideal place for sunbathing and swimming. For water sports lovers Denia offers a first class Yachting Club, fishing, windsurfing, diving or sailing can be practised almost all year round with beaches and coves of Las Rotas and the Cape of San Antonio, just south of the town being a haven for scuba divers and snorkelers.
Denia’s ports have always played an important part in this town with the fish market every day and regular departures to the Balearic Islands, and the new Marina which accommodates over 1000 moorings for yachts of all sizes, this town is always full of life. There are regular ferry trips from Denia to the island of Ibiza which can often be seen on the horizon on clear days (Trips take only 2 hours).
The town is dominated by the ‘Castello’, an old castle built by the troops during the siege of the Muslim town and then refortified during the War of Independence. It is now an archaeological museum which shows the towns history from 200 BC to the 18 century. In the town you can find all the modern facilities from supermarkets to banks, restaurants to dentists. But a walk around the narrow streets of the fishing quarter will reveal its history, culture and architecture of Iberian, Carthaginian, Roman, Arab and Christian civilisations that have inhabited Denia over the years.
The restaurants of the area are of excellent quality, with the main focus being rice dishes, such as the traditional paella and of course a great variety of fresh seafood. Many of the small local inns, traditional bars and restaurants offer the famous "tapas" and "A la Carte" menus. Go to the Properties page for Denia apartments and villas.

Javea (Xabia) is situated between the San Antonio and de la Nau capes and around this area are hidden caves and bays which were once used by pirates and smugglers in the Middle Ages. These beautiful bays are now used by sunbathers, snorkelers and scuba divers.
The streets in the old town of Javea are well worth exploring and here you will find a magnificent fortified Gothic church (San Bartolome) and a very good museum which explains the history of the coast from Palaeolithic times through Iberian, Roman and Medieval times. (Museo Etnografico 'Soler Blasco'. Go to the Properties page for Javea apartments and villas.

Moraira has grown from a small fishing village to an attractive holiday and retirement resort whilst retaining its unique charm that attracts visitors from all over Europe and is particularly popular with the Spanish who come from Madrid and Valencia. It has a small and colourful Main Street, a large marina, excellent variety of local shops, weekly open markets, harbour-side fish restaurants and bars still all retaining their Spanish character.
The sturdy fortress that overlooks the beach of Moraira dates from the days of Felipe II (16th Century). But today the importance of this fishing port in the municipal district of Teulada, located 6km inland, is due to its tourist infrastructure. Visitors from all over Europe have discovered the magnificent environment this town offers for holidaymakers or even for residents from abroad. Sandy beaches like El Portet, L'Ampolla and Plagetes, and also the tiny rocky coves with clear blue water (L'Andragó, Punta Estrella and La Cala) make Moraira the spot for fun, sun and sea sports. The modern Moraira Yacht Club completes the round -up for seadogs. Sights: Watchtower at Cap d'Or Torreón (Moraira Castle) Fiestas: Moors & Christians in June, Our lady of Mt Carmel on July 16th.

A tranquil and pretty village, originally an Arab outpost, with a stunning coastline formed by a succession of cliffs of more than a 100m high that descend vertically into the sea. Situated on the road between the port of Moraira and Javea as you drive northwards. This mainly agricultural village boasts two coves and has a great traditional fishing heritage. It is some 15 minutes from Moraira and Javea, Benitachell offers a fantastic location. Visitors staying around this part of the Costa Blanca can benefit greatly from the attractions and activities close by. Golf fans are well catered for as the local course is in the area, however a car is recommended so you can explore the delights of Northern Costa Blanca.
Benitachell is the perfect base from which to enjoy this lovely part of the Costa Blanca. Apart from Benitachell village and beach there are many places to visit along the coast including Javea that has a fine beach, a fishing harbour, restaurants and golf courses, Denia with some excellent shops on a beautiful tree lined main street, Moraira with its two sandy bays and marina with seafront restaurants, Calpe with its superb fish restaurants near the harbour and fine sandy beaches and Benidorm that boasts Aqualandia (water world), Mundo Mar (Sea World) the famous Benidorm Palace, that is the venue for some spectacular shows, and now of course the new Disney style Terra Mitica theme park and the Terra Natura nature park.

Calpe is a friendly fishing village which sits close to the Rock of Ifach on a hill rising up from the last spurs of the sierra Bernia in the middle of Spain's Costa Blanca, a geographical marvel that provides access to the northernmost towns of Alicante's Marina district. It is an authentic tourist site, with a coastline boasting sandy beaches, cliff faces in some areas and an ancient salt mine, which all give the town a peculiar flavour of its own. Calpe is overlooked by the towering Penon de Ifach which juts out into the sea and rises to over 1000 ft.
In contrast to the larger commercialised resorts, the village of Calpe with its narrow winding streets, traditional Spanish architecture and street markets generates an atmosphere of friendship and relaxation, a village where after only a few days you seem to know and greet everyone.
Calpe is a place of daring contrasts, where modern buildings and wide avenues harmonize with an ancient fishing village, where locals are proud of their past, yet welcome tourists and visitors with warm - hearted hospitality.
Calpe's fishing port comes alive with hustle and bustle as the afternoon fish auction draws near. Restaurant terraces fill up with lively crowds anxious to try some of the fresh local shellfish. The town centre preserves the remains of a small fort from the 16th century, called the Torreon de la Peca. There is also a Gothic-style parochial church worth visiting, with Mudejar additions. From the chapels of Cometa and Salvador there is an attractive view. Go to the Properties page for Calpe apartments and villas.

Located on a hilltop, with houses built into the rocks themselves, Guadalest commands a fine view of a picturesque valley in the interior of Alicante province on the Costa Blanca, with a river running through it, harnessed by the Guadalest dam, built long ago.

The San José castle in town visible from this webcam, can be reached through a short tunnel excavated into the rock. The village is listed as a historic-artistic complex, with ancient mansions and farmhouses, one of which has been converted into an ethnology museum located along the walled part of town at the top of the hill, presenting an impressive white tower covered with red roofing tiles.

La Herradura
Although not nearly so well known as the neighbouring Costa del Sol to the west, the Costa Tropical of Granada province is particularly picturesque beachside, and easier to get away from the crowds.
The mountains run right down to the sea and the coastline is typically a series of coves and promontories. La Herradura is pretty and unspoilt small town located between the two attractive promontories of Punta de la Mona and Cerro Gordo
Nearby in a protected cove east of Punta de la Mona is the impressive Marina del Este yacht harbour. Water sports and scuba diving are popular here, thanks to the variety of sea life and clarity of the water. This is a privileged strip of coastline which boasts the very best conditions and attractions necessary to provide an excellent holiday. Its situation on the Mediterranean, its closeness to Africa and to the Sierra Nevada, with the highest peaks on the Peninsula, protect the Costa Tropical from the cold northerly winds, creating a subtropical micro-climate, with 320 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of around 20ºC, where all kinds of tropical fruit is grown in its lush valleys. Cliffs, coves and long beaches make up the landscape of this coveted coastline, conquered by numerous civilisations. Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs have fought over it and left behind traces of their cultures. The Costa Tropical has six tourist centres - La Herradura, Almuñécar, Salobreña, Motril, Castell de Ferro and La Rábita - boasting a good tourist network where countless sports can be practiced: windsurfing, surfing, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, waterskiing, golf, tennis, squash and horse-riding. The Sierra Nevada, at more than 3,000 metres high and only a short distance from the coast, is a paradise for alpine skiing and mountaineering.
