60 second guide to Costa Blanca

Why move to Costa Blanca?

A mixture of rugged coves, pretty fishing villages, the larger cities of Benidorm and Alicante, and the white sandy beaches its named after, the Costa Blanca has something for everyone.

The Costa Blanca is a place of two halves, with the Northern areas offering a little more tranquillity, but a higher cost of living, and the Southern towns attracting more Northern European tourism, resulting in bustling resorts. For example, Moraira, a small town to the North, has been dubbed the St Tropez of Spain, whereas Torrevieja in the South has the highest population of British residents in the whole of the country.

The major centres on the Costa Blanca have comprehensive transport networks, within the cities and between them, but in the smaller towns, you’ll need a car. There are several international schools in the more populated areas. However, many families choose Spanish schools, as they’re free, easy to reach and offer better integration opportunities.

Alicante is the best-placed airport for travel abroad, and like any major city, offers a variety of destinations and price points for the budget conscious. The working day is often seasonal, with later opening hours over the summer months, and many businesses still close during traditional siesta hours.

Many of the towns in the Costa Blanca have thriving markets, sports facilities and nearby beaches. Most centre around nightlife yet remain incredibly family friendly. Golf is the reigning sport, with over 30 courses to choose from in the area; the town Villamartin was actually built around two championship golf courses. It’s said there are 230 castles in the region, most in ruin. There are world-renowned cave paintings and in August, the town of Elche hosts El Misteri d’Elx — the Mystery Play of Elche — a medieval drama performed at the Basilica of Saint Mary.

The Costa Blanca offers a life filled with fresh food, stacks of sunshine and relaxation. Just don’t forget your sun-cream.
