Costa Blanca Properties | Property For Sale in Costa Blanca
Northern Costa Blanca stretches from Alicante to Denia. The World Health Organisation has said that the area is one of the healthiest areas in the world and is especially beneficial for those with respiratory problems. The area remains green throughout the year and there are wonderful mountain views inland from the miles of glorious beaches. Outside of the resorts you will find unspoilt villages that are becoming popular with property buyers who want peace and quiet within easy reach of the resort towns. The Northern Costa Blanca is famous for the many orchards of citrus fruits and for the production of excellent wines.
Denia is much more than a Spanish resort – it is a thriving commercial centre. The town has the outward appearance of a city with high quality shops, the area's biggest hospital, and the Courts of Justice. But Denia definitely has its tourist side – with 20km of beaches, good water sports facilities, and the usual beachside bars and restaurants. At night the town is awash with nightlife amidst hundreds of bars, restaurants and live entertainment venues. Denia has an excellent golf course - La Sella Golf.
Javea is a Costa Blanca tourist and fishing town located between Cabo de San Antonio and Cabo de La Nao and is sheltered by the impressive Montgó massif that separates Javea from Denia. Many people believe Javea to be the finest resort on the Costa Blanca as its coastline is made up of beaches and coves linked by a network of viewing points. Unlike many other resorts, Javea has no high-rise apartments or hotels due to building restrictions. The resort can be divided into 3 areas: the old town, the port, and the beach area. The old town (La Villa or The Centre) has ancient narrow streets rich in history, a weekly local market, and a daily indoor market for fresh produce. The port is where the working locals mix with tourists. There is a fishing port and a marina. The many shops, bars, and restaurants have a distinct Spanish flavour. The beach area features the famous Arenal beach which is large and wide with shallow waters. This is the tourist area with many shops, bars and restaurants – where you can not only eat tapas and paella but also fish and chips or an English breakfast! At night there are discos, clubs and live music bars to keep you busy – and Javea has a wealth of fiestas to further entice your cultural passions. There is also a 9-hole Golf coarse, tennis, scuba diving, a nautical club and many other sports in Javea.
A lovely, peaceful and beautiful little Spanish village with a stunning coastline backed by 100-metre high vertical cliffs. Benitachell has become a very popular place for foreigners to call home as it is quiet and yet only a 5-minute drive from the resort of Javea. Benitachell is the site of the only independent Bowls club on the Costa Blanca. The town of Benitachell itself is slightly inland, but the municipal boundaries include 2 Km of Mediterranean coast. The municipal area of Benitachell covers approximately 12 square kilometres, and is made up of two very different types of landscape. In the northeast there are rolling terraced promontories given over to farming and in the south there is the coastal area with high, sheer cliffs plunging down to sea coves. Today there is a rich agricultural landscape of almond groves and Muscatel grapes. The coastline of Poble Nou de Benitachell is very dramatic, with spectacular cliffs and viewpoints from where to enjoy the finest sea views on the Costa Blanca. Nestled at the foot of the cliffs we find marvelous beaches and coves: de los Tiestos cove, el Llebeig cove and el Moraig beach. El Moraig beach is ideal for swimming and diving. On El Moraig beach itself we find the "Cova dels Arcs", an impressive cave with an underwater route inside. Poble Nou de Benitachell offers all the amenities, sports activities, golf, rambling routes and a cultural history rich in tradition and fiestas. The town has preserved its essence, combining a modern outlook with respect for traditions and an uncomplicated, hospitable attitude.

The distinctive feature of this municipality is that it is made up of two towns: the inland town of Teulada and the coastal town of Moraira. It is the perfect combination of a farming town, Teulada, and a fishing town, Moraira, brought together to form one of the coast's most delightful tourist municipalities. What is most enchanting about this municipality is that it has recently undergone spectacular growth without sacrificing its natural surroundings, traditions and customs. Teulada-Moraira has 8 Km of coastline with beaches and small coves such as El Portet, L'Ampolla, Les Platjetes, L'Andragó, La Cala, etc. The municipality's two towns are given over to tourism and also to grape cultivation, including dessert grapes, raisins and, of course, Muscatel grapes. The San Vicente Ferrer Cooperative uses the grapes to make excellent mixtures such as Villa Teulada white wine and sweet Muscatel.
Calpe is a resort defined by high-rise apartments and a coast dominated by the Penon de Ifach – a huge rock that juts out into the sea. On either side of the rock are two beaches surrounded by restaurants, bars and clubs. Calpe is a lively resort without being tremendously hectic. With small, rocky coves and expansive fine sandy beaches, Calpe has a wide variety of attractive coastline where transparent waters are the order of the day. Its beautiful, peaceful coves include Les Bassetes, to the north - a natural shelter that provides perfect conditions for learning to sail and an interesting sea bed carpeted with underwater plants perfect for diving. The local diving club and sailing school ensure safe conditions for both activities. La Fossa and El Arenal beaches offer a bustling contrast with a complete range of services, well-cared for promenade and summer rental facilities for windsurf, pedal boats and jet ski equipment.

The rock has been turned into a Nature Park and provides shelter for a variety of plants such as the rockrose, tree germander and the Ifach campion. The summit can be reached via a pathway tunnelled through solid rock from which you can enjoy a marvelous panorama of the coastline with the island of Ibiza being visible on a clear day.
This is without a doubt one of the most charming towns located on Spain's "White Coast". If you want all-night clubs and bright city lights on your holiday, do not choose Altea. This town is a holiday haven for the most discerning tourist who will be captivated by its medieval cobbled streets, its picture book old quarter and the delights of its palm-fringed seafront esplanade. Altea became a centre for musicians, artists and writers from all over Europe when they first discovered its delights back in the early 1960s. The town is now geared to the demands of the modern day tourist but still retains that Bohemian air. You'll find a fascinating array of tiny shops offering exquisite local crafts, paintings and gifts. There are top class restaurants where you can enjoy the local seafood and rice dishes as well as some excellent international cuisine. The impressive arts centre and concert hall - the Palau Altea Centre d'Arts - provides a wealth of entertainment and cultural activities.
Alfaz Del Pi
This small town has now grown into one of Costa Blanca's major tourist centres. Alfaz is a peaceful resort compared to its frantic next door neighbour Benidorm, however there is plenty going on in the evenings in Alfaz during the high season, including live music, concerts, and fiestas. Throughout the summer you'll find live music and entertainment in the local bars and restaurants. The major tourist accommodation area in Alfaz del Pi is situated around the Albir beachfront making it possible to stay more or less in one place if you want sun, beach, bars and restaurants. Close by there are sites of historic interest, excellent shopping centers and beautiful scenery.
Up until 1953 Benidorm was a tiny fishing village unheard of outside of Spain. That's the year when local mayor Senor Pedro Zaragoza rode his Vespa scooter for 8 hours to Madrid to see the dictator General Franco. His mission was to persuade Franco to lift the ban on bikinis. Franco agreed and the mayor went home to start building one of the most successful tourist resorts the world has ever seen. The distinctive skyscrapers are this town's trademark and they dominate the skyline for miles around. Yet you can drive just 20 minutes inland and find yourself in some of the most beautiful mountainous countryside that Spain has to offer. The resort is big, built-up and brash, attracting young visitors in droves. Benidorm is literally bursting with life - for energetic types who can beach bash all day and party all night, there's no better place in Spain. Alongside the hundreds of hotels that dominate the town centre, there are thousands of bars, cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, tattoo parlours, etc. There's a fantastic variety of entertainment which comes in every form imaginable and it's 'round the clock during high season, ranging from top class international cabaret acts to bar-room karaoke. On the beach there are water sports, glass bottom boats, banana rides, activity rafts and ferry trips. On the outskirts of the town there are some value oriented, major attractions for family days out including Spain's biggest theme park (a huge water park), and a wildlife and sea world centre.
A wonderful resort featuring a full 10km of beach, a beautiful marina, and a traffic-free promenade. El Campello is an ideal resort for relaxation that takes you far from the bustling world and yet close to numerous shops, bars and restaurants.
