Discover the most beautiful places to visit in Costa Blanca region
The Costa Blanca can boast of being one of the regions of Spain that houses the most beautiful villages in the country; by combining spectacular landscapes of sea and mountains. So many of the villages that settled here at the time, enjoy today an extraordinary beauty, either because of its unique architecture or the natural environment in which they are located.
Below, we show you some of the most beautiful villages that can be found in this region. We recommend that you visit them and let yourself be captured by their unique environments.
It is no surprise, the town of Altea has earned over the years recognition as one of the most beautiful places to visit in Costa Blanca. The unmistakable white hue of its houses and its privileged views of the bay of Altea, make this town a Mediterranean jewel and an indispensable destination to visit. In addition, this town offers us a great variety of leisure and cultural options, making it an ideal place to visit alone or in company.
Denia is another of the towns of the Costa Blanca that has endured well over the years. In its well-known Marine District, we can appreciate the great fishing tradition that has characterized this population for decades. A tradition deeply rooted in much of the coastal towns of the Costa Blanca. This town also stands as the capital of the Marina Alta region and it quintuple its population in the summer months.
Villajoyosa is another coastal town, with an extensive fishing tradition. In its historic center we can walk through its narrow streets, very typical in the Mediterranean villages. The colorful facades of their houses, painted in a wide variety of colors so that sailors could identify their own every time they entered the port. It has many places of interest and we certainly recommend the Valor chocolate factory and museum.
Although Guadalest is not a coastal town, it is one of the most beautiful and curious towns on the Costa Blanca. Its spectacular and well preserved castle gives us an idea of the deep medieval roots that this town still preserves. It also stands out for its wonderful views of its swamp, located in the center of the Guadalest Valley. Visitors will also have the opportunity to enjoy its wide variety of museums. With only 225 inhabitants, this town has 9 museums with a completely varied theme.
5# Calpe. One of the most beautiful laces to visit in Costa Blanca.
Despite having suffered a large urban boom in recent decades, Calpe still retains its beautiful historic center and traditional fishing port. In this town we can enjoy a great typical Mediterranean gastronomic offer. Throughout the port we will find a multitude of restaurants, where dishes are prepared with seafood caught in its bay. The more adventurous ones can enjoy the climb to the Peñón d’Ifach, with 330 meters, which awaits stunning views of the entire bay and town of Calpe.
