From the dark peaks rising over the town of Denia in the north, to the white beaches stretching as far as the eye can see near the south, Costa Blanca is a destination where the astonishing and the fascinating appear out of nowhere and a dull moment is a concept long forgotten.

The largest along the coast, Alicante is a modern city with strong historical roots dating back to Roman, Greek and Arab conquests. Towering over the cityscape, the 1,200 year old fortress of Santa Barbara Castle is the perfect place to start your urban exploration. One of the largest medieval castles in Spain, it can be accessed through a winding path that starts at Plaza de Carmen (but don’t worry, there’s also a lift). After gazing across the rooftops and the sea from the castle, head back down again to explore some of the city’s other sides. Relax by the Port of Alicante, visit the Archaeological Museum, or the Museum of Contemporary Art, or alternatively, escape the city for a few hours for a trip to Tabarca – an island that time seems to have forgotten.

Further north on the Costa Blanca, you’ll find Benidorm. A city synonymous with beach holidays and a buzzing nightlife, it also has a wide range of things to see and do, that doesn’t necessarily include a deckchair. Cut loose in the water park of Aqualandia or the mythological theme park Terra Mitica, explore the sea- and wildlife at the MundoMar Park, or head out to sea for a boat tour along the coast.

If you’re seeking adventures away from the more developed centres of Benidorm and Alicante, then head inland to visit quaint towns like Benissa or Elche. Alternatively, if you’re holidaying in the Costa Blanca in August, then make you way to Denia where the annual ‘Running of the Bulls’ or ‘Bous a la Mar’ takes place. Unlike other similar events around Spain, the aim here is for local men and women to run the bulls into the sea. You can catch this rather surreal event from the safety of the surrounding elevated stands.

Costa Blanca is of course about the amazing beaches, the fantastic water and the luxurious resorts. However, a holiday along this coast can very easily be supplemented with the many cultural, historical and alternative delights that exist around every corner here.
