Literally, the "White Coast" is a coastline of roughly 200 km (120 mi) in the Levant - eastern Mediterranean Spain, found entirely in the Alicante province.

The Costa Blanca stretches from the town of Dénia down south to tiny town of Pilar de Horadada, south of Alicante.

Among the best destinations (and most popular places to visit) in the Costa Blanca area are: Dénia, Calpe, Altea, Benidorm, Villajoyosa, Alicante.

I explored and thoroughly visited Alicante and Benidorm - so, check out those trip guides to see more, to understand deeper what they're really about.
Particularly scenic are the places of Villajoyosa, Dénia, Calpe, Altea. Perhaps I'll pay a visit to them and report on those places as well.
