Buying property in Costa Blanca
Why Costa Blanca is popular
It is no wonder that Costa Blanca is an enormously popular destination for those who want to move abroad. With the name meaning ‘White Coast’, this region boasts beautiful, award winning beaches that stretch along 70 miles of coastline and that is just one aspect of the attraction.
Whilst its popularity has brought modern development, in some areas Costa Blanca has retained an old-fashioned feel with pretty fishing villages that reflect the laid back Mediterranean lifestyle. The stunning towns of Alicante and Torrevieja are iconic locations in this gorgeous coastal region which is renowned for its dry microclimate.
The fantastic weather and unbeatable Mediterranean cuisine both ensure that Costa Blanca is one of the healthiest and favoured environments in Europe.
Buying Spanish property in Costa Blanca
Costa Blanca is easily accessible thanks to 2 airports in the region, which means that you are never much more than 30 minutes drive from your flight. The current popularity of the area gives rise to the fact that most British airports have frequent seasonal return flights to Costa Blanca.

If you are moving abroad for your retirement you will likely be using your precious life savings or pension to support your lifestyle. Thankfully, living costs in Spain are low in comparison to the UK which means your money will go considerably further.
