The Costa Blanca South area guide
Things to do
Costa Blanca South refers to the southernmost stretch of the Costa Blanca, down to the beginnings of the warm Costa Cálida. It roughly extends 80 kilometres between the major city of Alicante and San Javier, a few kilometres south-east of Murcia. It’s a very popular tourist destination thanks to its beautiful beaches and idyllic climate, and has changed over the years to adapt to the large numbers of British and German tourists that visit every summer.
The area owes much of its landscape, architecture and culture to the Moors, who first invaded in the 8th century AD and shaped the region for just under four centuries. They brought irrigation, terraced farming, spices and began to grow the fruit that is used so much in the traditional food of the area.
It was then the growth of the middle class in Northern Europe, from the 1960s, that really transformed the Costa Blanca again. With increasing disposable incomes, tourism exploded and the Costa Blanca South has been a big draw ever since. As people experienced wonderful holidays, many wanted to stay full-time and now foreigners buy as many properties each year as locals.
While the high visitor numbers have led to increased building and a transformation of the major cities, the region has not lost sight of its heritage. Outside the buzzing tourist centres are tiny villages and towns, still bearing the marks of the Moorish occupation and keeping the traditional Costa Blanca culture going strong. The Costa Blanca South is full of things to do, both active and sedate.
Socially, there’s plenty on offer. The resident expat population are very friendly and always happy to welcome new faces to the area – there is an excellent pre-established personal and professional network.
Cities, towns and villages in the region all offer something different. If you’re after lively bars, atmosphere and late-nights – you’ll find it easily. If you’d rather find a small independent café or restaurant for a quiet drink and a bite to eat, you’ll find that too provided you’re willing to go off the beaten track a little.
Places to eat
The food culture on the south-eastern tip of Spain is unique and eclectic. It is a mishmash of food cultures from around the Mediterranean Sea – Arabic, African, Italian and French influences can all be spotted.
Paella is the most popular dish from the area, which is especially good on the Costa Blanca due to the famously good rice grown there.
No matter where you go, you’ll be able to find both high-quality local food and international restaurants, from major chains to tiny family-run places. You’ll never run out of options to explore. El Misteri D’anna in Elche is a particular favourite.
Tourism brings shoppers, and the Costa Blanca South has risen to demand. Large-scale shopping malls are a common site in any major city, such as Murcia or Alicante, and high-street brands are everywhere – Zara, H&M and Massimo Dutti being examples.
What’s more, there are fantastic independent boutique stores to be found in almost every town. Particularly worth mentioning is Elche, which is famous for its fashion and has the largest shoe shop in Europe.
Getting there & around
Alicante, at the northern end of the Costa Blanca South, is the capital of the region and has the major airport for the area. Direct flights are easy to get to and from anywhere in Europe, and they’re relatively cheap too.
The region has fairly good bus and train networks between major settlements, but in order to have full freedom to explore the smaller and more remote places it’s advisable to either rent or buy a car locally. There are plenty of good dealers in all major towns."
