The Costa Blanca, or White Coast, stretches for 170 miles along Spain’s East coast - from Gandia in the North to Murcia in the South - with the city of Alicante marking a rough halfway point. It has more Blue Flag beaches than any other Spanish Costa – a guarantee that they are clean, unpolluted and safe for all the family. The Costa Blanca is a cosmopolitan and varied place to live: as well as stunning beaches there are dramatic mountains, lush valleys, breathtakingly pretty villages with white-washed houses, modern resorts, golf, water sports, fiestas and festivals, history and culture, food and wine. Tourism and development are concentrated on the coast – a short drive inland reveals peaceful villages, small rural towns and gorgeous, unspoilt countryside, with the excellent road network making it simple to get around.

Costa Blanca has an exceptional climate with 3000 hours of sunshine a year, low rainfall, low humidity and an average temperature of around 18 degrees Celsius. The mild winters mean you can live an outdoor lifestyle all year round. The Costa Blanca is one of the most stunning and unspoilt areas in Europe. It is also reputed to enjoy the healthiest climate in Europe with lots of sunshine, mild temperatures and low humidity. In fact in April 2006 the World Health Organisation confirmed that the beautiful year-round climate of the Costa Blanca was one of the healthiest areas of the world in which to live.

It takes around 2 hours to fly to the Costa Blanca from the UK. Alicante Airport, being midway along the coast, is ideally located for easy access to North and South Costa Blanca. Murcia San Javier Airport is handy for Costa Blanca South, and Valencia Airport is a possible alternative to Alicante if you are travelling to Costa Blanca North. The coast boasts excellent transport links via motorways with the A7 motorway (with some toll sections) stretching from north to south. The N-332 also runs parallel yet is free from charges although much slower as it passes through the middle of many towns.  

Costa Blanca North

The northern Costa Blanca is typically mountainous with cliffs and coves, a mixture of pebble beaches and fine sandy beaches. North of Altea towards Calpe it is surprisingly very green and lush. Beach resorts such as Javea and Moraira are very popular. Jalon valley is situated inland from Moraira and is a quiet retreat, popular with the British buyer because of the range of quality country properties. Benissa, Altea and Javea are situated in the heart of the Costa Blanca coastline. The area of Denia, Gandia and Olivia is green and mountainous making it a heavenly location for the artist and garden lover. Whether coastal or inland, there is a picturesque view in every direction. It is an ideal place to live in peace and harmony. With the world’s healthiest climate and little pollution, and all amenities you could wish for, it still retains a traditional Spanish atmosphere. You will never tire of the outstanding beauty of this part of the Costa Blanca. There are lovely quiet bays of calm waters and cool breezes, pretty marinas and promenades. Other attractions include quality restaurants, boutiques and an amazing mountain backdrop. The towns have easy access to Alicante airport with the majority of JMT's properties only 40 minutes away.


Costa Blanca South

Less dramatic than Costa Blanca North, the southern reaches of the Costa Blanca are perhaps a more typically Spanish coastline – flatter and more arid as you head towards Murcia, with miles of sandy beaches, palm tree forests and salt lakes. There is a bigger expat population in the South – particularly around places like Torrevieja, Playa Flamenca and Villamartin. Golfers are spoilt for choice here – with numerous top class championship courses to choose from.

The Costa Blanca is the perfect location for international buyers to realise their dream of a home in the sun, and the main attraction to the area is the wealth of facilities available to residents. The area boasts some of the best beaches in Spain, with 28km of uninterrupted sand between La Marina and Torrevieja.

The region in and around Torrevieja has been voted by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places in the world to live. The stunning Crevillente mountain range helps to create the areas unique climate where the average temperature ranges from 18-28 degrees Celsius. The weather ranges from 18-28 degrees Celsius most of the year and benefits from low humidity. The Crevillante Mountains help to maintain this climate, aided by the two large salt lakes in Torrevieja.

With so much to offer and such a marvellous year-round climate, you'll come back to the Costa Blanca again and again.




The Costa Calida is situated on the south eastern Mediterranean coast of Spain. It is bordered by the Costa Blanca to the North, and the Costa Almeria to the south.
The Costa Calida is blessed with many kilometres of fine sandy beaches, with some areas backed by dunes and virgin pine forests. The many towns and villages on the coast are proud of their promenades and beaches. Town beaches are well served by bars and restaurants, many with great views of the Mar Menor and La Manga.
The seawater is warm and very pleasant for bathing. The Mar Menor is shallow (which helps it get warm quickly), and the beaches slope gently, making them ideal for families with young children, and anyone who prefers not to be buffeted by the waves.The Mar Menor is surrounded by the districts of San Pedro del Pinatar, San Javier, Santiago de la Ribera, Los Alcazares and La Manga. The new long awaited Murcia International airport has now also opened as from January 2019 !
