The Costa Blanca North (Spanish for white coast) can be found in southeastern Spain from Denia to Alicante. Sandy beaches, low dunes, interspersed with rocks and steep coasts.
The international airport Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández is located exactly between the Costa Blanca North and South and only 15 minutes drive from the port city of Alicante. A pleasant city with a not too big center where everything can easily be done on foot. The many pedestrian streets with their many terraces and restaurants are the meeting point every day for aperitifs and socializing. Many unforgettable moments start here.
There are major differences between the Costa Blanca North and Costa Blanca South. Not only the landscape is different, the climate is also different and "the way of life" is not always comparable in both costa's.
The north is quieter, greener and more focused on nature and sports. The landscape is more mountainous. Beach life is of course lively and there are also wonderful restaurants and picturesque harbors. Important and popular places are Villajoyosa, Benidorm, Altea, Calpe, Moraira and Denia. A popular region for cyclists!
The south is busier, flatter landscape, drier, more focused on shopping and entertainment. Great plains and the famous salt lakes with the pink flamengo's. An exciting beach life, large shopping centers, harbors, terraces in abundance and a wide choice of restaurants. The most famous places are certainly Torrevieja, Santa Pola and La Zenia.
The Costa Blanca is one of the 10 healthiest regions in the world. Here the average age is 93 years.
