Tourist information on Northern Costa Blanca

The light of this region has given the Coast its name; a white light, transparent, brilliant but not dazzling, which was previously appreciated by its first settlers: Alicante, the capital, was Akra Leuka for the Greeks (white citadel) and Lucentum for the Romans (city of light).
This region of Spain boasts 325 sunny days each year with temperatures ranging from an average of 16° centigrade in winter, to 32° centigrade in summer, which ensure that you are able to enjoy life to the full. The Northern Costa Blanca, where the mountains meet the sea, offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in the whole of Spain. The area is full of lush vegetation with citrus, almond and olive groves growing in abundance.
The region is shielded from the colder winter winds of the interior by these mountain ranges. Because of these attributes the area is acknowledged by the World Health Authority as one of the healthiest areas in the world to live today.

2007 America's Cup in Valencia

The 32nd America's Cup will be held in Valencia on the Spanish Costa Blanca in 2007. Denia is a little over a hour's drive away and offers ideal accommodation for those wishing to experience or participate in this unique sailing event.

The competing super yachts will berth in new facilities to be constructed in the port, and will race close to Valencia in what will be the first ever European event in the history of the America's Cup.

The picturesque town of Dénia


The pretty town of Dénia dates back to the 4th Century B.C. and is named after the goddess Diana by the Romans, lying between the mountains and long sandy beaches. High on the hill overlooking the town is a 17th century Moorish castle. Dénia maintains its old traditions with its colourful fish and vegetable market. Walk around the old quarter and discover an authentic Moorish-Spanish atmosphere in its narrow cobbled streets.

The beaches to the North of Dénia are in total contrast to the beaches in the South. "Las Marinas" in the North is a 14.5 km long stretch of fine, sandy beaches offering differing facilities that provide everything needed for a relaxing holiday soaking up the sun. There is a large selection of bars and restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets along the length of this stretch of coast. The South stretch of coast consists mainly of residential areas including some very large villas. This coastline is a paradise for scuba diving. The Montgó Natural Reserve forms a dramatic backdrop to the South coast of Dénia.
