When researching property for sale in the Costa Blanca, many buyers decide to purchase accommodation close to the coast. This is not surprising, given the hundreds of miles of coastline and the excellent choice of beaches, with fine golden sands, clear waters and abundant palm trees. Families are advised to choose sheltered inlets with shallow waters, as these will be safe for children.

It's no wonder that so many people are tempted by property for sale in Costa Blanca. The sun shines here for most of the year and the area offers among the most extensive ranges of tourist amenities in the world. It boasts the best beaches in Spain and the mountains provide a beautiful and majestic backdrop for the province. There is a wide selection of property for sale in the Costa Blanca in all of the principal tourist destinations, as well as in the smaller and quieter towns and villages.

Costa Blanca's major resort is Benidorm and the town has proved consistently popular for over forty years with holiday makers, retirees and "second homers", as well as with investors looking for property for sale in the Costa Blanca. Seeing Benidorm now, with its skyscraper apartments and modern precincts, it is difficult to imagine that, prior to the 1960s, this brash and lively resort was only a fishing village. However, its crowds, noise and modern entertainments are not for everybody and, for those who want to get away from it all, there is much to see in the local area. Literally a few minutes by car, you can find yourself surrounded by mountains and valleys, in which are tucked away many picturesque small towns and villages.

As a contrast to the sleepy white-washed villages, Alicante is one of the fastest growing cities in Spain and also a sound option for anyone interested in property for sale in Costa Blanca. It has plenty of beautiful beaches, some of which are crowded during the height of the tourist season, but there are also isolated bays and quieter beaches if you want to escape the crowds.

The huge choice of property for sale in the Costa Blanca means that buying a second home in the area is a popular option to investor and holidaymaker alike. The mild and sunny weather and beautiful beaches attract many thousands of holidaymakers from all parts of the world. In reality, the potential purchaser is indeed spoilt for choice, whether buying for pleasure, leisure or investment.
