Costa Blanca holiday guides
The Costa Blanca beaches attracts millions of holidaymakers each year. Over 200 km of Mediterranean coastline are home to holiday hotspots like Alicante and Benidorm as well as small and beautiful Spanish villages all linked by along coast road.
The Costa Blanca is renowned for its turquoise seas and white sand beaches; for its fiery fiestas and neon-lit nightlife.
Family-friendly resort hotels are backed by remote valleys, pretty hilltop hamlets and unspoilt fishing villages in one of the best-known and most loved of Spanish beach holiday destinations.
Many visitors on a Spanish package holiday to Alicante will be tempted to take a holiday trip to the island of Tabarca — and with good reason. The island of Tabarca is actually part of the city of Alicante and one of the biggest tourist attractions of Costa Blanca, Spain, and the Mediterranean Sea. Tabarca island is only 10 miles south-east of Alicante.
Much maligned as a beer-and-chips holiday hell, nasty Benidorm has tried hard in recent years to clean up its beer-sodden reputation. The stock image of a holiday in Benidorm is of beaches packed with boozers, bars bulging with drunk karaoke singers and dizzy birds lurching between nightclubs stalked by bare chested blokes with IQs the size of their sandals.
