Costa Blanca holidays 2020
Spain’s famed Costa Blanca, meaning ‘white coast’, is one of Europe’s most popular 2020 holiday destinations. Visitors come here for a good time; for sun, sand and sangria. Combining a lively social scene, superb beaches and great weather for most of the year, a holiday on the Costa Blanca will remain a firm favourite for travellers into 2020 and beyond.
Despite being popular for its enticing package deals, all inclusive resorts and buzzing bars, there’s a little more to the Costa Blanca than meets the eye. Old towns such as that found in Xàbia conceal beautiful backstreets, whitewashed houses and stone shop fronts behind the more contemporary beachfront. Holidaymakers of every age can't wait to return to this please-all paradise and if you make this Spanish coast your next cheap holiday for 2020 and you'll see why.

Things to do in Costa Blanca
Places to see in Costa Blanca
The Costa Blanca is home to some of Spain's most famous resorts, making it pretty tricky to choose for your 2018 / 2020 holidays. First of all is Benidorm, which we don't have to say much about. This iconic holiday destination has been famous since the 70s, becoming a part of British holiday culture. Known for its all inclusive hotels, stunning Levante Beach and strong nightlife, Benidorm is a good place to start your hunt on the Costa Blanca.
For something quieter, the popular yet peaceful resort of Albir has everything you might need for a relaxing Costa Blanca holiday. Albir offers a golden sandy beach, awarded Blue Flag status, and a gorgeous strip of restaurants, cafes and shops.
Alicante, the heart of the Costa Blanca and where your flights will deliver you, is home to Roman ruins and its own share of beaches. Visit the castle of Santa Barbara or enjoy the pleasant hike to Playa la Barraca. Alicante is a beautiful cheap holiday destination.
Off the coast and not far from Alicante is the hillside town of Altea. Its iconic domed-roof church and the surrounding plaza offer incredible views over the Costa Blanca. We recommend a late lunch time/early evening visit to make the most of the bustling shops and the array of excellent restaurants dotted around Altea.
Calpe, not far from Benidorm or the upmarket Javea and Moraira, is home to the iconic Calpe Rock, an angular rock formation that juts out into the Mediterannean. Calpe is a bit like a smaller Alicante, yet this peaceful, well-appointed resort offers quicker access to the countryside and its own lovely beach.
The towns of Moraira and Javea are popular with expats and tourists alike. In recent years these small, once-fishing-villages have boomed in popularity and there are many upmarket hotels and restaurants spread out along their charming beaches. Moraira is the quieter of the two, whereas Javea is home to a bustling promenade and some of the best nightlife in the area.
Costa Blanca cultural highlights
The Costa Blanca may appear to be ultra modern on the outside, but peel back its contemporary exterior and you’ll find the southern Spain of old. Enjoy a taste of history in Denia’s old town centre, inspiration for movie writers and artists. Uncover castles, vineyards and local restaurants in the countryside just outside of Alicante. Maybe you’d like to see the iconic blue and white tiled dome of Altea’s old church, or discover Moorish monuments in Adsubia. Whatever you fancy, there’s plenty to see from a cultural perspective on your Costa Blanca holiday.
