Costa Blanca North
The Costa Blanca is concentrated in the central zone of Spain's Mediterranean coastline
The Costa Blanca is concentrated in the central zone of Spain's Mediterranean coastline. To the north, it is surrounded by mountains that prevent cold air from entering. It's a heat-lover's paradise, with an average annual temperature of +20°C and more than 300 sunny days a year. One of the good reasons why foreigners and Spanish visitors from other cities come here for holidays and permanent residence is the favorable climate.
The northern part of the Mediterranean region is ideal for a quiet, relaxing holiday. It is accessible from both Alicante and Valencia airports. Tourists and permanent residents alike will find:
- A diverse, interesting topography, with beautiful rocky coves and forests mixing with rolling hills.
- Themed amusement parks and water parks for extreme sports enthusiasts and families with children. The most popular ones are Terra Natura, Terra Mitica, Aqua Natura, Aqualandia. The Callosa d´en Sarriá is 15 km from Benidorm and the Safari Aitana is 40 km from the city.
- There are ancient castles, cathedrals, museums and art galleries to explore the local history and culture.
- Strategic seaport in Denia, from where you can travel to the Balearic Islands by ferry.
Features of the property market in the northern Costa Blanca
Property prices in the northern part of the coast are set higher than in the south of the region. The reputable Spanish property market portals Idealista.com and Kyero.com have published figures showing that demand for properties in Alicante and Benidorm is increasing. For example, to buy a good flat in Alicante near the sea, you need to have the amount of 70 thousand €. Benidorm flat with similar parameters costs from 100 thousand €. If you are planning to buy a villa in Benissa, Calpe, Moraira, prepare to pay from 400 thousand €.
One of the reasons for the rising cost of property is the scenic beauty of nature. The resort towns of Denia, Moraira and Javea are in a protected area. This means that the height and density of buildings are controlled by the local authorities. Because of this, property prices are rising in northern Costa Blanca.
