More than 218 kilometres of coast full of beaches with calm water and soft sand; 2800 hours of sunshine a year, a privileged climate and a gentle sea have been an excellent way to attract millions of visitors to our land in the last decades. Years passed and the development of modern tourist infrastructures and means of communication have made easier the access to the richness of the interior parts of our province. This guide is an invitation, a proposal for approaching our history, our festivities and celebrations, our gastronomy, our art history and industrial heritage, our proposal for leisure and sport. The Costa Blanca scenery is characterised not only by the sea but also by the mountains peeping at it. The Alicante Province is the second more mountainous one in Spain; the Mediterranean landscape is showed here: the terraced cultivated valleys of Arabic origin, the mountainous horizons covered by oaks, pines, carob trees and perfumed by a great variety of aromatic plants. In the south of the province the mountains disappear, giving place to palm tree fields and orange and lemon plantations. Mountains and hiking lovers have very well indicated paths in all the inside areas of the province. Beside all that, our territory is full of archaeological sites, which offer us an idea of the depth of the life and richness of our environment, inhabited for thousands of years. Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans and Arabs left their imprint here and we can guess their way of life by observing their remains. On the coast or in the interior you will find the opportunity of discovering our varied gastronomy and quality of our wines. You can visit, if you wish, the small towns hidden behind the mountains or the more modern and lively ones on the coast, which offer the visitor a very intensive night life. Their history and monuments mark the atmosphere of our towns in the whole province. We have a lot of marinas and many facilities all along the coast to enjoy the sea and its possibilities. Golf lovers are sure to find among us courses with all kinds of facilities. We wish visitors of all ages to find among us the destination they have been looking for. I ask you to accept this information as a proposal for a meeting and receive with it a friendly welcome. I wish you enjoy your stay among us.

Beaches The Costa Blanca has one of its main attractions in the extension of its coast, 212 kilometres, and in its mild climate with an average annual temperature of 17°C. Together with these natural conditions our beaches and its waters suffer a continuous sanitary environmental control, as it is proved by the 32 “Blue Flags” our province has received; flags given by the European Federation for the Environmental Education as a prize to the administrations that care well after the environment and services.


The beaches of the Costa Blanca have a varied recreational offer for its visitors

The orographic and geographic characteristics of the Costa Blanca determine the nature of its coast. The northern part of the province, the Marina Alta, is crossed by chains of mountains, which get into the sea forming steep cliffs of more than 150 metres high. Next to these cliffs we find caves formed by water currents coming from the heavy rainfall of the area. Denia, Jรกvea, Poble Nou de Benitachell or Benissa have small sheltered coves full of stones and difficult access by land.


“El Postiguet” beach is the most crowded beach in Alicante

In the Marina Baixa we can find less steep zones and larger beaches with softer sand like the ones in Benidorm –beaches of Poniente and Levante– or the one in the centre of La Vila Joiosa, though we have also attractive cliffs with small coves in Serra Gelada in Benidorm or in mount Mascarat, between Altea and Calp.

The southern part of the Costa Blanca, from Alicante to Pilar de la Horadada, is characterised by the extension of its beaches of soft sand, as well as by its damped land and salt marshes near the coast, such as the natural

Lagoons of La Mata in Torrevieja and “El Hondo” in Elche. The mouth of the river

Of the nearly 115 beaches and coves where we can swim, 32 have received the “Blue Flag” –an environmental qualification given by de EC– and 55 are accessible for handicapped people. Most beaches and places where you can bathe or swim are indicated in the towns and on the roads, have first aid service and sportive areas on the

You can see mount Cabeçó D’or from Muchavista beach


Torrevieja has an important number of moorings in its marinas


Campomanes Marina is located in the south of mount Mascarat

Sportive boats and cruises can moor at Alicante habour

There are 10.637 moorings all along the Costa Blanca in 17 nautical clubs and 11 marinas. Most of these clubs count with nautical schools and technical servi-

Together with its natural appeal, the interior of the Costa Blanca shows also cultural appeals, such as the urban richness of the Arab towns, the industrial archaeology of Alcoy or the Medieval layouts of towns, such as Monforte del Cid or Biar among others.

Gastronomy,

feasts

and

celebrations,

museums or fairs are other attractions of the Costa Blanca.

This orography, together with the climatic conditions, makes the Costa Blanca one of the most interesting destinations for people fond of the interior and adventure tourism. The 99 rural houses and the 23 youth hostels spread all over this part of the province allow the organization of many different trips all throughout the year.


“La Font Roja” nature park counts with a well of snow as one of its attractions

The “Diputación Provincial” of Alicante promotes a wide net of leisure areas

The interior of the Costa Blanca has a varied repertoire of cultural attractions


In the interior of the Costa Blanca you can practise risky activities, such as paragliding, rapple, canoyning, gliding, bungee jumping or other activities, such as hiking, riding or flying in a globe. The Costa Blanca counts with nature parks such as the “Carrascar de la Font Rotja, La Sierra Mariola, El Peñón de Ifach, El Marjal Pego-Oliva, El Hondo de Elx-Crevillent, The Lagoons of La Mata y Torrevieja or the saltworks of Santa Pola; all of them are well indicated and with tourist signs in the near by towns. In these parks the visitor can combine the sightseeing with the activities of hiking and cycling.

Our mild climate allows the practice of activities in the open air all throughout the year

The Costa Blanca counts with eight nature parks with typical characteristics each one of them


golf In the Costa Blanca there are a total of 13 golf courses, which are used during the year at an average of 74%, being a 100% in summer. Our golf facilities will include in the near future a wide offer of courses having all services of hiring equipment, buggies, as well as providing areas devoted to practise and to run schools of golf in bunkers or in greens.

In the northern part of the Costa Blanca we have the golf club “La Sella” in Denia –18 holes– the golf club Jávea, the golf club Ifach in Benissa –the first one in the province– the golf club Don Cayo in Altea, all of them of nine holes. There are eight new golf courses in preparation to be added to the actual offer


The most numerous golf courses of the Costa Blanca are located in the south of the province: In Orihuela we have the golf Club VillamartĂ­n, the Golf Club Las Ramblas

and

Egypt, among other Mediterranean cultures, is perfectly recreated in Terra MĂ­tica

leisure The tourist vocation of the Costa Blanca can be observed in the variety and quality of its leisure offer: Terra MĂ­tica in Benidorm with a double access from the motorway AP7 is the unique park truly thematic in Europe. The historic cultures of the Mediterranean sea are its main arguments: Greece, Rome, The Ancient Egypt, Iberia and the Isles are part of the thematic park that counts with spectacular attractions such as Magnus Colossus, the biggest big dipper of wood in Europe, Tizona, the Ulisses rescue, rafting or the Phoenix flight, descent in free fall from a height of more than 60 metres.


The Algar springs make up a spectacular scenery for swimmers and landscape lovers

Due to our mild climate, all these options are valid and can be visited with all the family nearly every day of the year.

These attractions are completed with shows of dancing, magic and Medieval tournaments as well as services of shopping and restaurants, among others. Animal lovers have shows in the different safaris we have in Benitachell, Benidorm, Pego or Elche. There are water parks all along our coast, as well as caves in Vall d’Ebo, Busot and Benidoleig.

Canelobre caves form a spectacular scenery of nature and lights

“Santiago’s” church in Orihuela is been declared a national monument

Santa Barbara’s castle is one of the main historic symbols of Alicante


The Arab era is basic to understand the culture of the Costa Blanca, because it is the origin of many of our actual urban structures, as well as of many military, civil and agricultural engineering. The layouts of Biar, Cocentaina, Elche, Monforte del Cid or Villena, among many other towns belong to this period. We can contemplate the military engineering in the magnificent castles located along the Vinalopó river from Elche up to Banyeres de Mariola. The building of these castles ended in 1609 with the expulsion of the Muslims, who left inhabited towns in the mountains as their last heritage. The first remains of the Christian world in our province correspond to the Gothic art, examples of which are found in James’s churches in Villena and Orihuela, Saint Bartholomew’s in Javea, or Saint Martin’s in Callosa de Segura.

The Arab Baths in Elche are one of the rare examples of the Muslims in the Costa Blanca


Small chapels of the so called Gothic of the Conquest are found in the towns of Biar and in the nature park “El Montgó”, between Javea and Denia. Penáguila, Cocentaina, Benissa or Calpe complete the brief tour of the first Christian art in our province.

Magdalene’s church in Novelda is an excellent example of Modernist style

The museum of the “Festa” is an essential element to know the iconography and symbolism of the “Misteri d’Elx”

The luxurious and ornamental modernist art has in Alcoy its best examples: the forge bridges, the factories by the river, the houses of modernist style constitute the best picture of this industrial town. The maritime facade of Alicante, Magdalene’s church and the Modernist Museum in Novelda, as well as the casinos in Novelda and Monovar are some other examples of Modernism.


Nevertheless, the culture of this period is characterised by Baroque, which is found in Orihuela, at the time religious capital of Alicante province. Five main monuments allow us to go through the history of art from Gothic up to Baroque. We can find some other points of interest in our province showing us this style: the churches of Pego and Aspe or the Town hall in Alicante. The fort of Bernia or the layout of Castell de Guadalest are the military variant of Baroque in the Costa Blanca. Santa Barbara’s castle deserves a special mention, being one of the most attractive pictures of the Costa Blanca.

The MARQ offers us the opportunity of knowing the prehistory and history of the Costa Blanca.

marq

Set in the former Provincial Hospital, the Provincial Archaeological Museum of Alicante – MARQ – is an extraordinary place where to

see the historic and prehistoric richness of the Costa Blanca. Divided into different rooms to show the prehistoric world, the Iberian one, the Roman culture, the Middle Ages, the Modern and Contemporary cultures it has the most modern technologies and interactive panels to show the life of the different periods. Together with this exposition the MARQ explains in a very pleasant way the process of recovery of the archaeological sites in land, and under water. A restaurant, rooms multipurpose, a shop and rooms for investigation complete this recent museum, being the first one of the XXI century.


festival and celebrations Festivals are the transgression of the social normality in the Costa Blanca. We have a lot of possibilities of living and participating in these celebrations: fancy dresses, gunpowder noise, music, bulls in the street or in the sea, fire and fireworks, Medieval cantatas, processions are some of the options people from Alicante have to celebrate life every year.

The Holy Week has an indispensable appointment in Santa Cruz district of Alicante


The Moors and Christians of Alcoy are considered of international tourist interest

Moors and Christians are the most peculiar festival of the Costa Blanca. They reproduce the historic wars between the Moors and Christians in the Middle and Modern Ages. Nowadays, they celebrate Moors and Christians in nearly fifty towns of the Costa Blanca all throughout the year. The parades of the troupe of Moors and Christians, the embassies or the fights with blank guns between the two sides are the most attractive and commonest elements of these peculiar festivals. The pilgrimage par excellence in the Costa Blanca is the one celebrated in Alicante The “Misteri d’Elx” constitutes an unforgettable experience, set between religiosity and show business

each Thursday following the Easter Sunday going to Santa Faz. Thousands of people from Alicante and province go in pilgrimage to the nearby town of San Juan taking up the main road and buying from all the stalls placed round the church where Christ’s face image is kept. Orito, near Monforte del Cid is another point of pilgrimage to celebrate the festivity of Saint Pascal Bailón.

Fire is present in many celebrations in the Costa Blanca by means of bonfires, cardboard figures –“fallas”– , gunpowder or “fatxos”


“Els enfarinats” of Ibi are celebrated on 23 December and it is a brazen and original festival

Another peculiar festive element of the Costa Blanca, also declared of International Tourist Interest, is the representation of the “Misteri d’Elx”, which is a lyric Medieval drama sung on 14 and 15 August by a cast of non-professional masculine singers. It originates in the Medieval representations of the divine mysteries inside the temples, which were left out of them as a result of the Council of Trent, remaining this one in Elche. This drama, in two acts, is represented in Santa Maria’s church and describes the Assumption of the Virgin Mary into heaven. The set of the drama and the XV century cultured Valencian in which it is written are other elements giving value to this cultural representation.

the festival.


There is not a celebration in the Costa Blanca without fireworks

Another peculiar religious celebration is the Holy Week, which has very attractive elements. Orihuela has a great tradition with its floats built by Salzillo or the curious image known as “La Diablesa” –devil woman– which is forbidden to enter the Christian temples. The tradition of the “Caballero Cubierto” –covered knight– and the Holy Burial on Holy Saturday are high moments of the Holy Week in Orihuela. Crevillente is another town celebrating the Holy Week with Mariano Benllure carvings and the wellknown choirs singing religious hymns of the XVII and XVIII centuries. In Alicante, capital of the Costa Blanca, there is a special magic moment, which is the Holy Wednesday procession in Santa Cruz district in the centre of the city, where the floats of procession go up and down its steep and narrow streets.


gastronomy The Costa Blanca has one of its greatest attractions in its gastronomy, a gastronomy based on agricultural and Arabic tradition that shows its Mediterranean character. As an entrance we have dried salty fish as tuna or similar fish. Another characteristic entrance consists of different kinds of typical cold meat. There is also “minxos”, small pizzas made of ratatouille and spinach.

Fideuá” is a variant of “el caldero” cooked with special noodles

Fishermen are the inventors of a lot of varied recipes

The wine and the alcoholic drinks of the Costa Blanca have their designation of origin. The sweet and white wines from the Marina Alta and the “Fondillón” from the Vinalopó are the best known ones. The red wine is strong and has a high degree proof. With regard to liquors taken after meals we have “Cantueso”, anisette, coffee liquor of Alcoy or “Herbero” made of aromatic herbs from mount Mariola.


The blocks of dried figs and the sweets are very typical in pilgrimages

We have typical dishes originated in the mountains for the lovers of food eaten with a spoon, such as gazpacho cooked with game, boiled chard, potatoes, green beans and onions. Stew served in three courses is typical at Christmas. We have some more recipes with fish such as the “suquet” that is a soup of fish from rock or the “borreta” made of cod.

Rice is the main ingredient of our dishes; together with paella we have rice served with stock, such as “arrós amb fessols i naps” –rice with beans and turnip– or rice cooked in the oven with beaten eggs on top. The “caldero” and “arrós a banda” are very simple to cook and recipes made by fishermen of the Costa Blanca.

fairs and conferences The Provincial Board of Tourism has a specific department named “Costa Blanca Convention Bureau� to offer all companies information about the possible facilities to celebrate their conferences in our province. The Costa Blanca counts with very qualified technological institutes


The situation of the Costa Blanca as an important tourist destination and services, makes our province be a privileged place to celebrate conferences and meetings of all kinds. The climate, the excellent communications, the experience of a tourist sector with more than 150.000 beds as well as the variety of a complementary offer, make the Costa Blanca a splendid meeting point.

The hotels of the province count with facilities and experience in organising professional meetings

The Fair Institution of Alicante (IFA) is in “El Altet�, between Alicante and Elche and very near the international airport; in these specialised buildings fairs on housing, fashion, ice cream or festivals are held.


services The Costa Blanca describes an area of dynamic economy in industry and commerce. The sector of transformation

counts with typical products such as wine, fruit and vegetables, ice cream or spices, some of them having the Designation of Origin.

Our footwear industry is very well known in the world

Footwear, furniture, textile, toys or marble in our province are leading economic sectors at a national level. Industrial estates, technological institutes or auxiliary industries spread in the whole province show the industrial power of the Costa Blanca.


Many important towns of our province count with large areas of commercial and leisure services, which are completed with the selling of craft products in some other towns, such as Guadalest or Gata de Gorgos.

Medlar is typical of the interior of the Marina Baixa

Marble is produced in the Medio Vinalop贸


communications

Euromed is a high speed train connecting the Costa Blanca with Catalonia and Europe

The Costa Blanca is perfectly well communicated with the rest of Spain as well as with Europe by land and by air. The airport of Alicante is placed between the cities of Alicante and Elche and it is number seven in importance in Spain, counting 8 million passengers a year. 80% of its traffic comes from Europe. There are direct flights to the main European and National cities.

The Motorway A7 vertebrates all the Valencian Community

The Costa Blanca is crossed from the south to the north by a motorway (A7) connecting the province with Catalonia and the rest of Europe. Another motorway of recent construction (A37) communicates the A7 with Torrevieja and the southern coast of the province. There is also another motorway connecting Alicante and the southern coast with Valencia via Alcoy. This motorway will soon be communicated with the one going to Madrid.


You can go to the Balearic Islands from Denia harbour daily

Alicante harbour is one of the most important in the Mediterranean and has a great amount of traffic of goods in its commercial and container docks. Its strategic situation, in the centre of the city together with its wide leisure area makes it be a very good destination for cruises as well as for sportive

boats,

having

a

great number of moorings.

Alicante is one of the first destinations for people from Madrid, who come by train. Nowadays, Alicante is connected with Madrid and Barcelona by train at a speed over 220 kph. Another railway unites Alicante and Denia, serving its trains as an occasion to organise tourist excursions along the Costa Blanca, such as “Limón

Express,

Trenet Senderista”.
