costa blanca spain

1. Location

Costa Blanca is on the Mediterranean south coast of Spain. Part of Alicante province, it includes big cities like Torrevieja, Denia, Orihuela and Alicante, itself. The World Health Organization voted TORREVIEJA as one of the healthiest places in the world to live, largely because of the two natural salt lakes just inland.They are the biggest of their kind in Europe and form a micro-climate, unique to the region. 

Additionally, the Costa Blanca and Orihuela Costa in particular, has so much to offer sport lovers.There are dozens of bicycle routes, tennis courts, top golf resorts and water sports available all year round.Direct flights from all over Europe land at Alicante Airport, only 30 minutes to the north.

All of this makes the area very popular among Europeans, but property prices for both homes and investment remain much lower than in Marbella or Mallorca, for example.
