La Costa Blanca fait plus de 200 km de côte dans la province d'Alicante et s'étend jusqu'à la Costa Càlida, soit du Cabo de la Nao au Cabo de Palos.

La Costa Blanca se situe au bord de la mer Méditerranée, avec 219 km de littoral regorgeant de plages, de cales et de falaises. La capitale est Alicante. La côte blanche s’étire de Denia au nord jusqu’en dessous de Torrevieja au sud.

Le nom de cette côte espagnole, la côte blanche, ne vient pas comme son nom pourrait l’indiquer de ses merveilleuses plages mais des fleurs de ses arbres fruitiers (oliviers, amandiers) qui poussent dans cette région.
