Costa Blanca (Alicante) – Spain
Apartments for Rent BOOK

Why is the Costa Blanca the best option to have a nice time with your family.

Are you trying to decide which view of the Mediterranean Sea you would like this summer? The old rivalry between the Costa Blanca and Mallorca always comes into play. Even though both locations have their benefits and disadvantages, the Costa Blanca is clearly the winner. These are the reasons why the Costa Blanca wins from Mallorca.

Mallorca is an island … which makes it much more complicated

It is always more complicated to reach an island than a destination on the mainland. On the Costa Blanca you will find some of the most picturesque beaches of the Mediterranean that can be reached by car. With your own transport you can make nice trips to the most diverse sights throughout the season. For example, you can drive to one of the traditional Spanish villages to explore the beautiful, historical places of Spain. On an island, your options as to what you can see are limited. On the mainland you can go wherever you want to.

Crowds of tourists!

Tourists, tourists and even more tourists. Tourists everywhere! During high season, Mallorca is the busiest island of Spain – for example, welcomes yearly around 10 million tourists! This can turn your pleasant family holiday into endless waiting in long queues for sights and restaurants. If you want to avoid these crowds, it’s better to stay on the mainland and enjoy the Mediterranean Sea from the Costa Blanca.

Towering prices

Everything that’s for sale on an island like Mallorca, must be brought there by ferry or ship. This transport costs extra money and this has its influence on the prices on the island. That’s why everything on Mallorca, as on all islands, is excessively expensive. If you want to avoid having to pay more for everything you need, it’s better to stay on the mainland on the beautiful Costa Blanca.

Spanish villages at their best along the Costa Blanca

Yes, there is no better place than the Costa Blanca to experience Spanish villages and thus preserve the special cultural heritage of Spain. There are countless enchanting places where you enter a completely different world, one where time has stood still, such as Torrevieja, Guardamar del Segura, Pilar de la Horadada, Elche, Orihuela, Jávea and Calpe. Moreover, the roads are excellent, so you can easily visit the sights with your own transportation and visit several villages in one afternoon. Along the Costa Blanca you will find the most beautiful villages Spain has to offer.

Calblanque Regional Park 

The Calblanque Regional Park represents one of the last untouched areas along the Mediterranean coastline and is truly unspoilt. Its enormous natural wealth is based on its arid mountains, its long, ochre and golden-coloured beaches as well as its lonely coves, the formation of its fossil dunes, its white salt lakes and its mountain massifs, which contrast with the blue sea. Yes, Calblanque Park is on the mainland and is another reason to stay on the Costa Blanca.

Conclusion: the hidden jewel awaits

The Costa Blanca is still the hidden gem of Spanish Mediterranean culture. Few people, however, know that you have similar landscapes to Mallorca but for half the price, with less crowds and a better accessibility. As soon as people find out how beautiful this place is, prices will rise, and things will get crowded. The time is now, so don’t hesitate and let Spain enchant you!

If you want to have a nice time with your family, the Costa Blanca is the best option.
