Discover Spanish charm, creamy sands and luxury wellness retreats on Costa Blanca holidays

Dive into an infinity pool overlooking the Sierre de Bernia Mountains before venturing out for seafood paella under the sun. Meander through tiny medieval towns where cobalt blue painted buildings match the colour of the sea. And discover stylish Spanish charm in cities as high-energy culture and sophisticated dining quench your thirst. Affectionately known as the White Coast, holidays to Costa Blanca put you among a vast stretch of fine sands and in between stone villages bound by olive and citrus filled valleys.

Boogie boards, kayaks and snorkelling gear flank Blue Flag beaches; clubs, markers, tees and balls are pristinely lined up at world-class golf courses and narrow cobblestoned streets give way to blue domed churches and pretty-as-a-picture independent shops. Cycle through bougainvillea-scented towns visiting ancient chapels and tasting traditional tapas along the way. 

Those 300 days of sunshine a year guarantee vitamin D and to kick-start your immune system the SHA Wellness Clinic puts holidays to Costa Blanca on the map as a sleek spa destination for the ultimate health fix. Expect to be pummeled by aqua lab turbo jets, learn how to cook the macrobiotic way and breathe in pure oxygen with hyperbaric therapy. If that’s all a little too hale and hearty, there’s no rule to say you can’t slink off into town for sangria at sunset. 

“Spain is our most popular destination for a sunny break, but most of us hardly scratch the surface of what is actually the wildest country in Europe. Spain is home to the continent’s only desert and the highest mountain range after the Alps, and changes dramatically from deep-green fords in Galicia down to arid Andalucia.” - Simon Reeve
