Spending holidays in Spain / Costa Blanca

The Costa Blanca has everything to offer for holidaymakers!
The average temperature in winter is about 16ºC.
In spring and autumn the average temperature is around 20ºC.
In summer, the average temperature is about 35ºC

Location
The Costa Blanca is located on the east side of the Spanish mainland. In the south, the region borders on the Costa Calída
and in the north on the Costa del Azahar. The coast borders the Mediterranean.

Beach
Alicante is one of the most famous cities on the Costa Blanca with its beautiful palm boulevard and pleasant shopping street. The coast owes its good reputation to the kilometers of beaches of +/- 50m wide and attracts many sun worshipers and pleasure seekers. The sun is almost always shining and the azure blue Mediterranean Sea invites for a swim all year round.  The sandy beaches nearby are about 10 minutes away by car and can be reached up to the beach itself. The beach slopes gradually into the sea and is therefore very suitable for children and there is also play equipment available. The beach is guarded by lifeguards during high season.

Exciting adventures on the Costa Blanca

"Spending the winter under the Spanish sun."
During the winter months, especially many people over 50 flock to the Costa Blanca.
In winter there is a pleasant temperature that varies between 16 and 21 degrees.
In summer life goes on here 24 hours a day; in the winter months it is quieter, but there is still plenty to do.
The salt lakes are particularly popular with people with heart problems, rheumatism, arthritis or asthmatic conditions where the healing powers of the salt lakes are said to provide relief from the pain associated with these diseases.
As a result, this region has become one of the most popular places in Europe to spend the winter.

Thanks to our extremely competitive prices for winter visitors, you do not have to be rich to spend the winter in Spain every year.
Food prices are also a lot lower in Spain than in the Netherlands or Belgium.

Shopping / Parties
In all towns and villages there are various shops for daily shopping (chemist, bakery, cigar shop and large supermarkets). If you really want to take a day out, you can take advantage of cities such as Alicante and Elche where there are large shopping centers.

Local parties with and without parades and always ending with fireworks.
