Climate

The Costa Blanca boasts a lovely climate. The rugged mountain range behind the coast keeps the wind from the Spanish countryside at bay. Summers aren’t too hot and the winters are very mild. The average temperature is 18°C. Temperatures don’t exceed 30°C in the summer. And should you spend Christmas on the Costa Blanca there’s a high chance temperatures will reach 20°C. The Costa Blanca enjoys more than 320 sunny days in a year.

Sun & sand

The Costa Blanca is rightly known for its magnificent sandy beaches and intimate bays. Children build sandcastles on the beach and collect shells along the tidemark, whilst you can keep an eye on them from your lounger under the parasol. Try a little fishing in the evening in the harbour before heading back to your deluxe villa. Would you like to cook the fish yourself? Many of our holiday homes have a large BBQ area on the patio where you can cook to your heart’s content.

Sailing, skiing and diving – everything is possible! There are plenty of marinas where sailing boats or surf boards can be hired. Many diving schools offer courses to one day diving instruction. You can also be sailed around on one of the many boat trips. One top tip – certainly for your children – is a trip in a glass-bottomed boat along the coast. Thrilling glimpses into the crystal clear Mediterranean waters!

Various (water) amusement parks are to be found along the Costa Blanca too.

Countryside

The Costa Blanca naturally boasts a splendid coast line, but the countryside is spectacular too; it’s hilly with much vegetation. Heading inland you’ll see bare rugged hills and granite and sandstone mountains of all shapes and sizes. You’ll come across wooded valleys, vineyards, almond gardens and extensive fruit tree groves. The fauna in the countryside is very diverse: wild boars, deer, foxes, hares and rabbits and birds such as the woodpecker, owls and bantams. Be on the lookout during your walk and you’ll most likely surprise one of these animals.

The Moors built an extensive irrigation network across the valleys which still functions to this day. The many orange and lemon groves flank it. If you’re visiting in the springtime take a walk through these groves; the blossom aroma is overwhelming. The terrace style farmland and numerous palm trees also point to the Moorish past. Seek the shade on warm days in the expansive pine tree forests, just as the Spanish do when picnicking.

You’ll come across many Spanish villages, each with their own particular characteristics and festivities. One recommendation are the Busot grottos (Las Cuevas de Canalobre – 700m high).

Eating & drinking

There is an abundance of excellent restaurants along the Costa Blanca; from the typically Spanish to the more international cuisines such as Mexican or Chinese.

Traditional fare on the Costa Blanca is – is to be expected – based on fish. Deliciously fresh fish the locals themselves catch in the Mediterranean Sea. Fruit and vegetables are also important components. A holiday on the Costa Blanca isn’t complete without having tasted a delicious paella! The region is renowned for its rice; often prepared with bouillon and fish, just as the fishermen cooked in a pot over the fire during their sea trips. You’ll always find fish and shell fish on the menu in many restaurants. A gilthead or sea bass cooked in a bed of salt, with shell fish drizzled with lemon juice, fresh red mullet or hake. You’ll smell the sea on your plate!

Tapas is another delicacy; small fresh sardines, garlic prawns (gambas à l’ajillo) and deep-fried squid (calamares fritos) to mention but a few. Delicious with a lovely glass of Spanish wine in a bar on the boulevard, or even an ice cold beer too.

Golf

Do you like golf? If so, the south of the Costa Blanca is the right place for you with its numerous verdant golf courses. For example, the La Marquesa golfcourse in Rojales near the La Matar and El Recorral nature parks. Or, La Finca just outside the small village Algorfa. What to think about the royal courses of Villa Martin, Campoamor or Las Colinas close to Torrevieja and the sea. Plenty of choices for the true golfer and nothing more than 20 minutes away from your holidayhome.
