COSTA BLANCA (ALICANTE) – SPAIN
The province of Alicante is full of beaches and coves with crystal clear waters and blue flags. Many times we think of the Caribbean when, a few kilometers away, we have the most charming towns. And the name of Costa Blanca is not by chance, it is because of the unique light that this area of the coast gives off.
It is difficult to choose the most beautiful villages of the Costa Blanca. The coast of Alicante has 244 km of coves, beaches and cliffs and goes from the northern region of the Marina Alta to the south in the Vega Baja. But we can say that the Costa Blanca is one of the most beautiful areas of the Valencian Community.
