Costa Blanca: Shopping Holiday
The White Coast
Visitors will be able to enjoy the ultimate ‘shop until they drop’ experience during a shopping holiday on the Costa Blanca, such is the selection of shopping opportunities. Each town and city along the coast offers the visitor and bargain hunter something different. Agost hosts a large selection of shops which sell water jars (botijos) typical of the region, along with a range of ceramic items from pots to platters. Alicante has some of the biggest department stores on the Costa Blanca whilst the town of Crevillent houses workshops and factories offering the luxurious and colourful rugs and carpets for which it is renowned throughout Spain. Torrevieja, located in the southern part of the Costa Blanca, features two enormous salt lakes, and souvenir shops sell unusual carved boats made entirely from salt. Benidorm is the place to go for cheap t-shirts and a huge variety of beachwear to suit all tastes and budgets. The Costa Blanca really is a shoppers’ dream and there is literally something for everyone.
