In which region of Spain can you live best?
Spain is a beautiful country with lots of natural parks and endless beaches, majestic mountains, and an extensive gastronomical and cultural experience. Just about all Spaniards are in love with their homeland and, wherever they are from, proudly affirm that their town or province is the best in the world to live.
Our business is located on the Costa Blanca, and we also believe that it is the best region to live and enjoy life in Spain. Why? Well, here we give you five brief answers to this question.
Why live on the Costa Blanca?
1. The Costa Blanca is located on the fabulous Mediterranean coast of the province of Alicante and has almost 250 km of splendid beaches, cliffs, small coves, and bays with crystal clear waters. Furthermore, it is the coast with the most Blue Flag beaches in all of Spain: in 2018, the province of Alicante received a grand total of 81 blue flags for its excellent beaches and marinas.
2. The climate of the Costa Blanca is recognized by the World Health Organization as one of the healthiest and most enjoyable on the planet. It is a very stable climate with an average temperature of 20ºC and more than 320 sunny days a year.
3. The province of Alicante offers its residents a lot of diversity in nature: wooded mountains, natural parks, lagoons, marine reserves, and so on. Here we highlight some of these natural spaces:
- El Hondo Natural Park which is located between the municipalities of Elche and Crevillente.
- The Lagunas de La Mata and Torrevieja Natural Park, full of flamingos, grebes, black winged stilts, slender build gulls, and many other birds.
- La Salina de Torrevieja is a unique salty lake, famous for its intense pink colour (especially in summer) and for being one of the largest salt production regions in all of Europe.
- Montgó Massif Natural Park located in the Marina Alta region. The Montgó mountain rises dramatically from the valley encompassing it and dominates the horizon for miles around. Its rocky cliffs are home to some of the most unique flora and fauna in Spain.
- Marine Reserve of the quiet and beautiful Island of Tabarca (Santa Pola).
- Fountains of the Algar River, a wonderful and very well-preserved natural area with cold waters, picturesque waterfalls, and natural pools, surrounded by fields of cherry trees that each spring offer visitors an unforgettable spectacle of their flowering.
4. The quality of life on Costa Blanca is excellent due to its perfect climate and healthy ecological environment and the low prices of housing, food (especially fruit and vegetables), and leisure in general.
It should be noted that the property on offer on the Alicante coast is very varied, and you can find excellent apartments close to the beach for a relatively low price, or exclusive villas that go for several millions of euros with large gardens, private swimming pools, and sea views. Regardless of your taste, family needs, and budget, you are sure to find something to suit.
5. The Costa Blanca is a great place to enjoy traditional Alicante festivals (The Moors and Christians in almost all the coastal towns, Hogeras de San Juan in Alicante, Habaneras in Torrevieja among many others); the rich and healthy gastronomy of the Levantine province; from the theme parks like Terra Mítica, Aqualandia or Mundomar in Benidorm; Aquópolis de Torrevieja or Polapark in Santa Pola; of historical monuments and many other attractions, too many to mention in an article.
