Tourists Are Flocking To Spain

The Costa Blanca is where you want to go for a Mediterranean beach vacation. Here is some information to help you plan your visit to this popular area of Spain.

As you can guess from its name, the “White Coast” has plenty of white sandy beaches that extend for miles. There are eight cities along the Costa Blanca that are good places to be your home base during your visit. Your best bet for a home base may be Javea.

Javea is one of the northernmost cities of Costa Blanca. Denia is first, followed by Javea, then Moraira, Altea, Benidorm, Guardamar, Torrevieja and Pilar de la Horadada in the south. If you rent a car, you can easily move from one city to the next. You can get a rental car at the airport in Alicante.

Javea is popular with many tourists because of its beautiful landscape. Did you know that it is a World Heritage site? In Javea, you can actually see a bullfight taking place in the streets. Several streets are closed off to the public and the bulls are housed in an impromptu corral area. Young men are encouraged to enter the area and fight off the bulls, some of whom have had their horns ignited with gasoline.

If you prefer somewhat less violent entertainment, visit the raisin market. Javea is a major exporter of Moscatel grapes, the grapes and raisins are an important byproduct. At the raisin market you can buy virtually anything having to do with this favorite fruit. Its one of the more popular Costa Blanca attractions.

Of course, you should not visit Javea, or any of the Costa Blanca, without spending time on the beautiful beach. Work on your tan and listen to the waves of the Mediterranean. All your day-to-day worries will disappear. The Costa Blanca is a great place to “people watch” as the Costa Blanca is a top vacation spot for Europeans. You will be amazed at the many languages and cultures that are represented here each summer.

Because the area is so popular, it is best to plan your trip well in advance. Even six months in advance is not too early to make your reservations. Search online for vacations in Spain to determine what you and your family would like best. Be sure to consider your budget. Fortunately, you can get plenty of discount flights through Alicante Airport nearby. You can also find many package deals that combine airfare, accommodations and ground transportation at great savings.

Some people like the Costa Blanca so much, they choose to retire here. This is a great option because the climate is so mild and the cost of living is comparatively low. Once you’ve visited here, you may decide to do the same.
