Located in the southeast of Spain, the Costa Blanca has unique and incomparable landscapes that will make any traveler dream. Bathed by the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, it has paradisiacal enclaves and an ideal climate for practicing water sports and outdoor sports in general.
It is important to highlight its rich and well-known Mediterranean gastronomy, based mainly on its rice dishes, fresh fruits & vegetables, and its tasty fish from the local bay. There are many places where you can taste an exquisite cauldron of fish, a vegetable paella or a rich senyoret rice dish. For those with a sweet tooth, the Costa Blanca is famous for its creamy ice creams and also its rich nougat chocolates and fine artisan jams.
It is famous for its diverse natural landscapes such as the "Sierra de Aitana", which offers a distinct landscape away from the sun & beach environment, or the famous salt flats of Santa Pola or Torrevieja which create an ideal setting with their majestic pink waters. You can also visit some small towns hidden between the hills and mountains or the most modern and lively coastal cities with an intense and colourful nightlife.

In addition, the territory is dotted with innumerable archaeological sites that make our visit to the Costa Blanca even more special and unique.
History and monumental architecture mark the landscape of inland towns and cities dotted along the coast. We cannot forget to mention its popular festivals, traditions and the folklore of the Costa Blanca. We celebrate both the Moors and Christians Festival, the Bonfires of San Juan or the spectacular Holy Week of Easter. From north to south of our Region, the culture stands out for its originality, richness, diversity and spectacular being.
There are numerous port marinas and modern boating facilities scattered along the coast, to enjoy the sea and the nautical facilities that Costa Blanca has to offer.
