About Costa Blanca

Alicante, Benidorm and Calpe – booking sun and fun-filled holidays in Costa Blanca is as easy as A B C. This picturesque, frankly excellent part of the eastern Spanish coast is dubbed the White Coast thanks to its lovely sandy beaches, but aside from these obvious talking points, holidays to Costa Blanca should be about much more than just sun-seeking. Why not hire a car and explore the pretty fishing villages and resorts that crop up along the coastline? Top spots include Benidorm, Alicante, Calpe, and Torrevieja, and, handily, they’re all within easy reach of each other.

When To Go

Weather on the Costa Blanca is reliably seasonal, with scorching summer days offering temperatures of around 35°C, spring days when it’s slightly cooler, but still lovely and sunny. Winter weather is cooler still but with lows of around 10°C it’s likely to feel warmer even than summer in the UK! It’s a great year-round destination, with quieter resorts outside of school holidays. Between October and March you will find that some bars and restaurants close for the winter, but you’ll still find plenty to see, do and visit whenever you decide to take your Costa Blanca holiday.
