Property for Sale in Costa Blanca - Alicante
Searching for property on the Costa Blanca (Alicante)? Let HomeEspaña help you find your dream home on this beautiful coast. Our portfolio of over 1,500 fabulous Costa Blanca apartments, townhouses and villas is second-to-none.
But first, a few words about why Costa Blanca property is always in such high demand for second homeowners.
Firstly, the climate – of course, that’s a big attraction for many overseas buyers. The Costa Blanca boasts 320 days of sunshine a year, low rainfall, low humidity and an average temperature of around 18 degrees Celsius. The mild winters mean you can live an outdoor lifestyle all year round.
Secondly, the beaches. The Costa Blanca stretches for 170 miles along Spain’s East coast – the coast of the province of Alicante – from Gandia in the North to Murcia in the South – with Alicante City marking a rough halfway point. It has more Blue Flag beaches than any other Spanish Costa – a guarantee that they are clean, unpolluted and safe for all the family.
Next, the sheer variety of what’s on offer. The Costa Blanca is a cosmopolitan and varied place to live: as well as stunning beaches there are dramatic mountains, lush valleys, breathtakingly pretty villages with white-washed houses, modern resorts, golf, water sports, fiestas and festivals, history and culture, food and wine.
Tourism and development are concentrated on the coast – but a short drive inland reveals peaceful villages, small rural towns and gorgeous, unspoilt countryside, with the excellent road network making it simple to get around.
And let’s take a look at the property for sale here. There’s something for everyone, from bargain apartments (starting from around €65,000) near the beach, to modern townhouses, to traditional Spanish fincas with private pools hidden in tranquil locations that are still only 15 or 20 minutes to a gorgeous beach,
It takes around 2 hours to fly to the Costa Blanca from the UK. Alicante Airport, being midway along the coast, is ideally located for easy access to North and South Costa Blanca. With so many airlines operating services to Alicante, it’s easy to shop around and get a good deal on flights. Corvera Airport in Murcia is also convenient for the Orihuela Costa, and Valencia Airport is a possible alternative to Alicante if you are travelling to Denia / Marina Alta.
Property hunters here tend to focus their search on one of two areas – either South Costa Blanca (from Alicante airport down to Murcia) including Torrevieja, Quesada, and the popular towns of the Orihuela Costa; or North Costa Blanca, including Denia, Calpe, Benidorm, Javea, and the Orba and Jalon Valleys. Below, we take a brief look at both to see what’s on offer.
Denia, Javea, Orba and the Marina Alta
Costa Blanca North – Head north from Alicante airport, and the terrain is more lush and mountainous. Olives, lemons, oranges, almonds and cherries are cultivated here on terraced hillsides and exported worldwide. This part of the Costa Blanca is less developed than the southern end – with building heights and density strictly regulated in many of the towns. From larger resorts like Calpe to small market towns like Benitachell and Pedreguer, this charming part of the Costa Blanca has something for everyone. Particularly popular with walkers and hikers, there are twenty natural parks and a mix of sand and pebble beaches.
The Orihuela Costa
Costa Blanca South – Less dramatic than the Marina Alta and the northern stretches of the Costa Blanca, the southern towns are perhaps a more typically Spanish coastline – flatter and more arid as you head towards Murcia, with miles of sandy beaches, palm tree forests and salt lakes. There is a bigger expat population in the South – particularly around places like Torrevieja, Playa Flamenca and Villamartin. Golfers are spoilt for choice here – with numerous top class, championship courses to choose from.
The array of property for sale on the Southern Costa Blanca is immensely varied. There is something to suit all requirements and budgets, with an excellent selection of cheap property for sale, as well as luxury villas and apartments at the top of end of the market. There are plenty of new developments – gated and golfing communities – and also a large variety of bargain re-sale properties. For investment potential, the Costa Blanca is hard to beat. If you are considering buying to let, 12 months of sunshine and the family appeal of the region make year-round rental a real possibility.
