Places to live in Costa Blanca

Along with Costa Del Sol, the Spanish coast of Costa Blanca attracts both tourists and expats every year. While many of us look forward to a short holiday in the sun, others are thinking of packing up their furniture and moving to Costa Blanca for good. If you are thinking of moving, then here are a few places to live in Costa Blanca.


When you start listing popular destinations in Spain, the chances are Alicante will be near the top of your list – not just because it starts with the letter A. The great weather and sandy beaches dominate tourism, making it one of the most visited coastlines in Europe.

The cost of property in Alicante is relatively low in comparison to elsewhere in Spain. Apartments overlooking the sea are of course in high demand, but you can find a bargain within walking distance.


With a skyline dominated by high-rise buildings the popular seaside resort caters for holiday makers and the locals alike. There is plenty of accommodation in what was once just a small fishing village. These days a large amount of the population is made up of immigrants, making it one of the most culturally diverse places in Europe. If you own a holiday home why not put your personal belongings in storage boxes out of season and rent it out?


The small town of Benissa is away from the tourists, but close enough to popular areas such as Alicante and Valencia. If you’re looking for a commute this could be an ideal location, with a number of places to live near to the main road in and out of town.
