Alicante | Mediterranean Province With Natural Diversity | The Costa Blanca Revealed

Alicante, on the Costa Blanca...

 ...really does need a good review, especially after seeing this video, which for me was a good reminder of what's actually here to interest anyone planning on visiting Alicante.

I actually found this video about Alicante on Youtube today, and it really is an excellent job, well done. I wish I could say the same about the description found below the video, but anyway let's see if I can do it better:) I must say the video really does show the real landscape diversity Alicante has to offer as a province, and its significant historical background dating back to over 3000 years.

Anyway, the video description states that Alicante is in fact the capital city of the Costa Blanca (The White Coast), which actually has quite an arid landscape due to the excellent weather we have here in Alicante all year round, and even during Winter, temperatures reach 20 degrees centigrade, so  it's easy to see why the W.H.O. (World Health Organization) declared Alicante one of the healthiest places to live in the whole world. The Costa Blanca actually has something for everyone from tiny rural inland villages to cosmopolitan tourist resorts on the coastline. All of the beaches in Alicante province have been awarded the European blue flag for quality crystalline, clean, and safe beaches.

The Costa Blanca has over 100 km of sandy beaches and rocky coves to explore, but if you move away from the coastline, you will find the beautiful scenery shown in the video. The northern Costa Blanca is a mountainous terrain with cliffs and coves, and a mixture of pebble and fine sandy beaches, and is surprisingly green and lush, whereas the southern Costa Blanca is mainly flat with fine sandy beaches, palm trees ,palm groves,and salt lakes. The Costa Blanca is one of Spain's most popular holiday / vacation regions, and has also become home to many Europeans, who just couldn't help falling in love with the sheer beauty and diversity that Alicante beholds.
