The Costa Blanca is more extensive than you might expect. With over 200km of coastline, the equivalent of the distance between Prague and Brno, there are many areas to choose from!

Also known as the "White Coast", the Costa Blanca is full of lively towns and coastal areas that offer a wide range of amenities, from restaurants and top golf courses to beautiful beaches. This destination has been a favorite among Central European buyers and vacationers since the relationship with Spain began in the 1950s. With a population of around 1.9 million, 30% of whom are foreigners, it's no surprise that more and more people are opting for well-known and desirable areas such as Denia, Calpe, Guardamar del Segura and today we look at life in Torrevieja!

Introducing: Torrevieja, a city on the coast
If you don't know much about Torrevieja, you're missing out! Located in the southeastern province of Alicante, Spain, the city is traditionally known for salt mining thanks to the two large salt lakes within its borders.

The year-round resort averages 320 days of sunshine a year, making it the perfect holiday home destination with guaranteed sunshine and blue skies! Residents can enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle in one of the healthiest climates in Europe, as recognised by the World Health Organisation. The dry microclimate provides noticeable benefits for patients suffering from rheumatism, arthritis, asthma and heart problems.

Torrevieja and its surroundings have a rich history dating back to the Roman Empire. Near the town there are archaeological sites that reveal Roman ruins, including ancient villas and thermal baths. These historic sites provide a fascinating glimpse into the past and add another layer of charm to the area.
