Costa Blanca North
The Costa Blanca North is located in the province of Alicante and stretches from Denia towards the south to Alicante city. Famous places include Denia, Javea, Benissa, Moraira, Calpe, Altea, Albir and Benidorm. This coastal strip is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in Spain and is characterized by a very varied and picturesque landscape. Not only extensive white sandy beaches, from which the Costa Blanca owes its name, but also impressive capes and cliffs with hidden azure bays between green pine forests make this area a very exclusive region. And because the region is very exclusive, the housing market on the Costa Blanca North is also more expensive than on the Costa Blanca South. The many mountain ranges make excessive building development impossible, so there is a limited density. Due to the smaller supply of land, and because of the location in the hills, prices are higher than on the Costa Blanca South. And because there are many large building projects on the Costa Blanca South, where many houses and apartments are very similar, on the Costa Blanca North there are mainly individual villas, and small-scale projects with apartments. Many villas and apartments, surrounded by greenery, offer fantastic panoramic views of the sea and the mountains. Benidorm however, also located on the Costa Blanca North, is a bit of an outsider because of the skyscrapers. But therefore not less popular, on the contrary. And you too may be surprised by the coziness and bustle of the old town in Benidorm, the many fiestas, the tapas alleys … The Costa Blanca North is also easily accessible via the airport of Alicante. The airport of Valencia, although a bit further away, is also an option. Also nice is that on the entire Costa Blanca North you can travel toll-free on the highways. Also, don’t be fooled by what some people say about the climate and don’t be fooled by the word ‘North’ either. The coastline starting from the Costa Blanca North, over the Costa Blanca South, Costa Cálida, Costa Almería, Costa Tropical to the Costa del Sol, has an average annual temperature between 17.9 °C and 18.3 °C. Of which the Costa Blanca North fluctuates around 18.2 °C. So, be sure to visit the Costa Blanca North, and check if you feel that ‘connection’ there too!
