Costa Blanca Holidays
Perhaps the most celebrated destination for holiday in Spain, the Costa Blanca is a coastal stretch of sun, sand, sea and sangria, the perfect break for both family and friends. From Denia in the north, to Torrevieja in the south, this Mediterranean holiday heaven remained relatively untouched until recently when tourists began to realise the potential that this beautiful part of the country possesses. And as it grows in popularity, bookings for next year are advised to be made as early as possible- leave it too late and you risk losing your holiday!
Our favourite Costa Blanca hotels
On The Beach last minute deals are always an option, however you can't rely on their availability to destinations growing in popularity as much as this one, so our best advice is to book early. A week or two of topping up your tan on the sea front is only a few clicks away!
One of the key reasons why resorts on the Costa Blanca proves so popular is the area's irresistible climate. It is perfect for a spot of summer tanning and the beaches never fail to impress. With July and August temperatures often reaching over 30 degrees, these are also the months when rainfall is at its lowest, meaning an uninterrupted day of beach relaxation can almost be guaranteed.
Sea temperatures also peak in the twenties around the same time, yet the breeze from the Mediterranean makes sure the temperature never becomes unbearable. For many, this is the perfect combination, which is why tourists flock back to the Costa Blanca every year. So if you don't want to miss out on the summer sun, then book your holiday today!

Things To Do on Holidays
The Costa Blanca is brimming with things for all the family to do, and is renowned as being one of the most entertaining destinations in Europe. Watersports are available at many of the beaches, and range from a nice family afternoon on a pedaloe to an hour on the thrill seekers best friend, the jet ski. For a more tranquil afternoon at sea, resorts such as Santa Pola offer sea fishing excursions, giving you a chance to explore the coastline in a slightly different way.
If it is thrills and spills which you are looking for, then the Costa Blanca tailors to your needs also. It is home to the famous Terre Mitica theme park, and boasts a variety of water parks, the biggest and often most popular with tourists being Aqualandia near Benidorm. The area is perfect for golfers, with high quality courses stretched right along the coastline, including Campoamor and Las Ramblas to name but a few.
Things to do: Culture
With over 200 kilometres of coastline, the Costa Blanca is rich in culture, and in parts is very typically Spanish. The cobbled streets of the old town in Altea with its domed blue and white church is just one example of the country's heritage preserved today, attracting nearly as many of those simply looking for the sun. As with the rest of Spain, the inhabitants are often very religious, meaning the fiestas over the Easter week and weekend prove very popular with tourists, and provide perhaps a better insight into how the locals actually live.
As for food, hotels will often advise on the best places to go for some genuine Spanish cuisine, whether it be paella or tapas. Of course, away from the smaller towns and villages are the more renowned holiday resorts. The recently revitalised Benidorm is always a holiday makers favourite with its golden beaches and thriving nightlife, although resorts in Alicante and Torrevieja are providing stiff competition. Wherever you decide to go, make sure you get the best deal possible by booking with On The Beach!
Things to do: Nightlife
The nightlife is near unrivalled - visit some of the many local restaurants and bars for a quieter and more authentic night out, and there are always the bars and clubs of Benidorm to keep even the most experienced of party goers dancing all night. The Costa Brava doesn't stop when the sun sets, if you want you can party through the night and into the morning!
