Destination guide

Find your Costa Blanca holiday rental

There are 1,000s of Costa Blanca holiday lettings to pick from – this is one of Spain's most popular sections of coastline, after all. From north to south, it encompasses buzzing seaside resorts, like Denia and Torrevieja, drops down to shimmering beaches like Playa de Levante and rock-studded Cala Ambolo, and passes more zoos and aquaparks than you can shake a plate of sizzling paella at. On top of all that come helpings of tasty Spanish cuisine, sleepless party nights on the strips of Benidorm, and fascinating cultural attractions, like the rock-cut town of Gaudalest and the soaring Santa Barbara Castle of Alicante.


History to find near Costa Blanca holiday rentals

The 120 miles of coastline that make up the Costa Blanca weren't always peppered with slides and rides and picture postcard-perfect beach resorts. Once upon a time they hosted the Western arm of the Roman Empire, evidence of which can still be seen in the largely-unknown villa excavations at Albir. The history of later centuries is much easier to see, though. Just take the muscular rises of the Santa Barbara Castle in Alicante, a great citadel that dates to the 9th century, raised when the Moors controlled southern Spain. The Archaeological Museum of Alicante sits below that, offering deeper insights into the past of the region as a whole.
