Costa Blanca is not as cold and wet in the winter as Costa Brava to the North, nor is it as hot in the summer as Costa del Sol in the south. Costa Blanca has the best all year round temperatures, and the climate is recognized as one of the best in the world by WHO. In the winter months Costa Blanca has nearly as many sunny days as in the summertime.
Costa Blanca is a beautiful region with mountains stretching along most of the coast. A 100 kilometers (60 miles) of sandy beaches attracts many holiday makers as well as people wanting to move to the area from other parts of Europe. As a result the whole area has been heavily developed in the last 10-15 years with many new urbanizations, hotels, golf courses, shops, restaurants etc.
