Beyond the coastline, the Costa Blanca is home to charming towns and villages that showcase the region’s rich history and culture. Alicante, the capital city, boasts a beautiful waterfront promenade, a historic castle perched on a hilltop, and a vibrant old town filled with narrow streets, colorful buildings, and lively markets. Other towns like Altea, Javea, and Denia exude a unique charm with their whitewashed houses, quaint streets, and traditional Spanish character.
Nature lovers will also find much to explore on the Costa Blanca. Inland, the region is dotted with rugged mountains, rolling hills, and fragrant citrus orchards. The Sierra de Bernia and Sierra de Aitana offer fantastic hiking and biking opportunities, rewarding visitors with panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes. Additionally, the region’s nature parks, such as the Montgó Natural Park and the Penyal d’Ifac Natural Park, provide a haven for diverse flora and fauna.
