Costa Blanca – the White Coast.
Why is Costa Blanca such a huge hit with holidaymakers? The clue’s in the name…
“The White Coast” is so called due to the sun-drenched soft sandy beaches that stretch for endless miles and the coast of Alicante. Whilst many associate Benidorm and its high-rise hotels, pubs and karaoke bars with this sunseeker’s paradise, there’s so much more to Costa Blanca. Take the city of Alicante itself. Beyond the airport lies a rich mix of history, culture, chic shops, a smart marina and vast expanse of beach just metres from the city centre.
Get to know the real Costa Blanca with VillaMore. For those seeking something more off the beaten track there’s plenty on offer. Moraira, a once bustling fishing port, has grown into a delightful resort where the only high rises are the spectacular mountains which form a dramatic backdrop to the delightful coastal town. Likewise, Javea is free from over-development and offers an enticing blend of old-town charm and modern tourist attractions, all in a picturesque setting.
Javea is three villages in one; the old village is 5km’s inland with narrow winding streets around the 16th Century church, the port is at the north end of the bay for fish restaurants & shopping, whilst at the south end is the Arenal, a swathe of sand with high quality shopping & dining area beside the beach.
Moraira Old Town is a pleasure to explore and very rewarding, some great restaurants and cafes, shops and stylish boutiques, set between the marina and the town beach. There’s a weekly street market on Fridays and street stalls selling handicrafts every night in summer.- Read less
