Costa Blanca refers to a 200 km long strip on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, located in the south of the Alicante province, in southeast Spain. Its inland area known as Vega Baja. 1500-meter high mountains overshadow the Costa Blanca in the north, which run parallel to the sea. Costa Blanca’s beaches are dotted with palm trees. The surrounding area is marked for its beautiful valleys, towns and villages, fruit orchards, vineyards, almond trees and green fields.
Costa Blanca is famous for its sunshine, mild breezy climate, delicate local cuisine, and festivals for tourists, excellent facilities for relaxation, entertainment, sports, mountaineering and hiking, besides shopping and sightseeing. Millions of tourists visit this place each year.
