Living on the Costa Blanca South

In recent years, this region of Spain has become increasingly popular with expats and people looking for second homes.

Elche is a historic town with a beautiful city centre and is home to the largest palm grove in Europe with more than 200,000 trees. Alicante is a thriving city with many first-class restaurants, hotels and spas. As befitting its multicultural population, Costa Blanca South has hundreds of restaurants serving cuisine from around the globe including the finest regional dishes using local produce such as shellfish, fish, rice and artichokes. In the summer there are plenty of music festivals and fiestas including the San Juan hogueras in Alicante which involves giant satirical statues in the streets, fireworks and a beach party.
