The Costa Blanca or White Coast extends along the eastern coast of Spain (approximately in the middle) and covers the province of Alicante. To the north of Denia is the Costa del Azahar and to the south of Torrevieja is the Costa Calida.

The Costa Blanca is not as cold or wet in the winter as the Costa Brava, nor is it as humid or hot in the summer as the Costa del Sol, in the south.

The Costa Blanca has the best all year round temperatures. The climate is recognised as one of the best in the world by the World Health Organisation. Many people with arthritis come to the Costa Blanca and within days feel much better. In the winter months the Costa Blanca is lucky enough to have nearly as many sunny days as in the summertime.

The Costa Blanca has over 100 kms of sandy beaches and rocky coves and many of the beaches have the coveted European Blue Flag signifying cleanliness and safe bathing.
