Over 200 km of sun-blessed coastline, the Costa Blanca is a stalwart of the Mediterranean adored by the Irish for its long strands of glorious white beaches and ‘good time guaranteed’ attitude to tourism – and its low cost flights! The World Health Organization has even declared it to have one of the planet’s best climates, so it’s good for your health. Fact!
Dive into crystal clear waters at secluded spots like Serra Grossa, or for those seeking the simple life; head to the few surviving old-town kernels like Xàbia and Altea. La Asegurada Municipal Museum in Alicante also holds one of the globe’s most extensive collections of Spanish art for those who like to soak up some culture with their sun.
Between Alicante’s booming club scene and the fishing town of Denia providing the perfect gastronomic getaway, you’ll need a couple of weeks to even scratch the surface of this Mediterranean marvel.
