Property for Sale in Costa Blanca North, Alicante
The Northern Costa Blanca coast starts around Gandia, then heading south through Oliva then Pego and Ondara. This area is full of orange groves and majestic mountains in the background. The sandy beaches are excellent and uncrowded. Inland is pretty with Jativa a beautiful town with a superb castle and Villalonga.
Moving down the coast you come to Els Poblets, then Denia which has a marina and port from which you can get a ferry across to Ibiza and Majorca. Now the coast changes from being flat to rugged with coves and rocky beaches. Inland is the Orba valley with villages such as Sagra, Orba, Benimeli, Benidoleig, Beniarbeig, Sanet y Negrals, Tormos, Murla, Benichembla, El Rafol d'Almunia, Benimaurrell, Fleix, Campell, Fontilles, Paradisorba, Aspre-Obreta and Montaneta El Eden.
To the south of Denia comes Javea with its sandy beach followed by Moraira, a smaller town also with a good sandy beach. Inland are the working towns of Gata de Gorgos, Jesus Pobre, La Jara, Pedreguer and Benitachell and the Jalon Valley famous for its vineyards and blossoms comprising of the towns and villages of Lliber, Jalon, Xalo, Alcalali and Parcent. Teulada is inland of Moraira as is the town of Benissa although its rolling hills extend down to the coast where there are rocky beaches and coves, then to Calpe, one of the Costa Blanca's most famous tourist destinations.
Originally a small fishing village, Calpe is now a busy town with high rise hotels and apartments blocks dominating the skyline. Calpe has the famous rock called the Penon de Ifach which rises from the sea. On either side are two fantastic wide sandy beaches.
Heading south we come across swanky Altea with its hills full of whitewashed houses, winding cobbled streets and designer shops. Next is Alfaz del Pi (also known as L'Alfas del Pi) with the beach area of Albir and then Benidorm, the biggest tourist resort on the Costa Blanca.
Benidorm is huge with masses of high rise skyscrapers. The beaches of Playa Levante, Playa Poniente, Playa de Mal Pas and Playa de Cala Finestrat are excellent and the nightlife is legendary. There are plenty of hotels, cafes, entertainment, shopping and a number of fine theme parks for the family such as Terra Mitica, Aqualandia, Mundomar, Terra Natura and Aqua Natura. Take a boat trip to La Isla de Benidorm, a small uninhabited island great for snorkeling. Go watch a show at the Benidorm Palace.
After Benidorm the coast becomes flat with mile after mile of sandy beaches. Also the mountains in the background begin to fade further and further away.
Take an excursion from Benidorm inland past La Nucia, Polop, Callosa d'En Sarria to the castle at Guadalest, a renowned Costa Blanca tourist attraction. Also close to Callosa d'En Sarria are the Fuentes de Algar/Algar Waterfalls natural park which is beautiful and you can bathe in the crystal clear water of the Algar Water Falls (Fuentes del Algar waterfalls).
