The Sunrise of Spain: la Costa Blanca

by Dilek

Waking up with the charming scent of flowers and watching the sunrise, you can probably hear the song "What a Wonderful World" in la Costa Blanca (White Coast).

Situated in the southeast of Spain the coastline reaches to 200 km with lots of wonderful cities to see, huge waves to surf and precious beaches to lie down and forget the troubles of your life. The coast is in Alicante province in the south of Valencian Community and drags not only Spanish people but also foreigners from countries like Germany, United Kingdom and lately has become a paradise for the Chinese and Russian either to spend time or settle down.

The endless activities throughout the year and its preserved nature make Costa Blanca is a must go place. You can reach Costa Blanca with the daily flights to Valencia as Alicante is two hours distance away. You can pick train or bus yet if you want an unforgettable experience; you’d better travel the coastline by car or jump on the bikes –depending on how much conformist you are- and get the best of Spanish natural beauty.

Starting from the north, Dénia is a small and lovely city on a rocky mountain which embraces the blue with green. There are daily ferries going to Ibiza Island from this city and another city that offers a clear view of Ibiza on sunny days is called Xàbia. To do this, climb to the highest peak of Montgó Natural Park and let you forget the moment in a heavenly picture. The city is a popular destination for northern European expatriates to spend the rest of their lives after retirement.  

Benidorm, is a shining pearl and has a great interest from all around the world especially known in all Mediterranean countries thanks to its remarkable beaches and legendary night life. Levante, Poniente y Mal Pas are the three blue flagged beaches which are awarded by the European Union. On the way to Benidorm, you should stop by at the Natural Park of Penyal D’Ifac, located in Calp. The park has an extended view of coastline where you can enjoy nature It is also hosting many plants and animals that some of them are facing extinction.
Altea, whose streets are narrow and steep, the church of Our Lady of Solace (Nuestra Señora del Consuelo) will rise with its blue dome among the white houses.

There are numerous cities and places to see, fascinating  Mediterranean cuisine to taste, a perfect climate (the lowest temperature is around 11ºC  51ºF) to enjoy and Spanish culture to live in Costa Blanca.
