Holidays to the Costa Blanca 2017 / 2018

British holidaymakers have been booking cheap Costa Blanca holidays for decades, lured by the year-round Mediterranean sunshine and silvery white beaches which give the area its name. However, Costa Blanca holidays aren’t just about Sun Sea and Sangria. At Co-operative Travel we offer late deals in Costa Blanca that show a different side to the area – one that’s brimming over with culture, history and natural beauty.

The Costa Blanca contains some of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain, notably Benidorm, the country’s most popular summer resort. As a result, bargain holidays to Costa Blanca are often associated with mass tourism and coastal development. However, stray away from the modern high-rise beachfronts and fast-food restaurants and you’ll discover a whole new Costa; the pastel-painted fishermen’s cottages of Villajoyosa, the palm forests of Elche, the Moorish beauty of Orihuela. Even the large, well developed resorts have a hidden side; Benidorm has a charming old town, while Alicante’s historic treasures include an imposing fortress. Murcia, meanwhile, is an open-air museum of baroque treasures, rivalling Barcelona.

However, most people book Costa Blanca package holidays with the beaches in mind. Benidorm is still the most popular choice for last minute Costa Blanca holidays, with a soaring skyline of high-rise apartment blocks and all-inclusive hotels keeping prices at rock-bottom. Four miles of white Blue Flag beaches, four theme parks and a non-stop selection of bars, clubs and restaurants offer something for all age-groups. Families will find Poniente beach or Benidorm Old Town the most relaxing places to stay. Alternatively, look for late deals in Costa Blanca, in nearby Altea, a pretty medieval town with family-friendly beaches that oozes traditional charm. Calpe is another popular choice, with fantastic rock pools and sandy beaches.

If you’re looking for unspoilt beauty with tranquil beaches, look for Costa Blanca holiday offers at La Manga del Mar Menor, or La Manga. Famous for its nature reserves and lagoon, people have been taking Costa Blanca holidays here since Roman times! At Co-operative Travel we particularly recommend La Manga Club resort for its sports facilities.
