Alicante. Costa Blanca starts to the north at Denia, and ends to the south at Torrevieja. Alicante, the main city in the area, can be found almost in the middle.

Costa Brava
, meaning Wild Coast, is a 160 kilometres stretch of beautiful, rugged coastline in the region Catelonia in the northeast corner of Spain. Its natural beauty, endless miles of sandy beaches and summer sunshine made it an obvious target for the tour operators when the package holiday industry took off in the 1960s, and Costa Brava was one of the first recognized tourist destinations of Spain. Today you will find modern, international tourist resorts with high-rise hotels alongside unspoiled fishing villages and medieval towns with ancient castles.

Barcelona, to Rose near the French border.
