Costa Blanca: Beach

The White Coast

The Costa Blanca is the perfect destination for a beach holiday, with an endless supply of sandy beaches, ideal for those who want to indulge in watersports or simply top up their tan. Of the 115 beaches and coves suitable for bathing during a beach holiday on the Costa Blanca, 32 have been awarded the “Blue Flag” status by the European Union for their cleanliness and high standard, and 55 can be accessed by disabled people. The beaches vary throughout the region, with the south of the region boasting finer sand, but those to the north of Altea tend to be more rocky and have pebbles rather than sand. However for visitors who are willing to compromise with less sandy beaches in the north, will be compensated with the stunning landscape and surrounding scenery. A Costa Blanca beach holiday will not disappoint.
