It extends from the municipality of Denia in the north to Pilar de la Horadada in the south. It is made up of 244 km of beaches, coves and cliffs. It borders to the north with the Valencia Coast and to the south with the Costa Cálida (Region of Murcia).

The Costa Blanca has a contrast of landscapes such as the steep cliffs of the Marina Alta, the beaches of the Vega Baja del Segura, the mountain ranges (Montgó, Sierra Helada, etc.), the lagoons and the salt flats.

The ecological variety means that we find up to four natural parks: El Montgó, El Marjal Oliva-Pego, the Peñón de Ifach and the Lagunas de la Mata and Torrevieja.

The date palm tree grows on flat lands, very important in some municipalities such as Orihuela and Elche.

The natural vegetation coexists with species for agricultural use such as olive trees, carob trees, pomegranate trees, lemon trees, loquat trees and almond trees.

The Costa Blanca and its own name have traditionally been related to a very specific tourist product: the so-called sun and beach tourism, that is, vacations linked to the weather (More than 300 days of full light and an average temperature of 20ºC) .

Currently, the evolution of the tourist destination and its resources are creating an increasingly complete offer in the province of Alicante, whose proposals can also be consumed in its interior (Alicante is one of the most mountainous provinces in Spain) and beyond. the summer season, aligning itself with the increasingly sophisticated preferences of tourists.
