MumAbroad Costa Blanca

 

The Costa Blanca (literally meaning “White Coast”) is over 200 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline in the Alicante province, on the southeastern coast of Spain. It extends from the town of Dénia in the north to Pilar de la Horadada in the south. Costa Blanca has a well-developed tourism industry. The localities along the Costa Blanca include Jávea, Benidorm, Alicante and Torrevieja.

 

Alicante is the second largest Valencian city and the eighth largest metropolitan area of Spain with a population of near on quarter of a million. Alicante is one of the fastest-growing cities in Spain with an economy largely based on tourism and construction. The high number of expats are well catered for, with extensive support networks in the social and professional streams, as well as large numbers of English-speaking services.

 

Jávea is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Spain with plenty to offer visitors such as a picturesque old town with gothic buildings, port and sandy beaches. Since the 1970s Jávea has been an extremely popular destination for affluent northern European expats and it is estimated that approximately 12,000 British people live in the area. As so many people choose to relocate to Jávea, integrating will not be a problem. English speaking doctors, dentists and specialists are readily available, and the friendly expats and locals are hugely welcoming. The environment is safe and peaceful, with a plethora of amenities including shops, restaurants and health services within walking distance. For families, you can take advantage of the parks, sports clubs and international schools.
