With over 200 km (124 mi) of sandy beaches and tranquil waters, Costa Blanca is one of Europe’s most popular vacation destinations. The modern seaside resorts of this sun-warmed coastline draw over 6 million visitors each year. But while Costa Blanca’s beaches dip right into the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea, deeper inland, verdant valleys and charming villages buzz with traditional Spanish cultural attractions. The entire region is blessed with stunning natural wonders, which include hidden coves, underwater caves, and dense forests. Its grand mountain ranges provide a vivid backdrop for ancient villages, offering plenty of authentic color to be explored.
