2010 Vacations On The Costa Blanca
Total Articles: 4777
In the last few decades, Spain's Costa Blanca region has been a popular holiday destination for UK tourists. Recent trends in the British economy threaten to change that though. Fewer holidaymakers are finding their way from Great Britain to Spain because of the poor currency exchange rate when changing up Pounds for Euros.
Reasons to Visit The Costa Blanca
The seemingly perfect temperatures of Costa Blanca, Spain make it a popular place for tourists. Also referred to as the 'White Sun', the Costa Blanca is known for her warm weather and sprawling sandy beaches. Situated on the Mediterranean coastline, it is the ideal place to relax and enjoy time away from a busy work schedule. However, the surrounding areas offer more than just beaches. The area boasts many attractions and things to do.
Denia and Javea are situated at the bottom of the mountain on the East Cost of Spain, offering the feel of an older city. Denia has a marina and a port. Visitors can take a ferry from Denia to either Majorca or Ibiza for a change of scenery. And from Majorca it's easy to visit Menorca as well.
The Jalon Valley, a town slightly inland from Denia and Javea, is lined with vineyards and blossoms. Torrevieja, another city on Costa Blanca, has long stretches of beaches, but it also has a growing number of buildings.
Benidorm, another attraction in the area, is a holiday resort that caters to a wide variety of holidaymakers, from beach lovers and families to more adventurous types and those who enjoy an active nightlife. It features a skyline of tall buildings and bright lights, lined with sandy beaches.
The Costa Blanca is a good holiday destination for families as well. The region includes a theme park, a water park, a safari, water sports, festivals, museums, golf courses, mountain climbing, markets and shopping. There is so much more to do, aside from relaxing on the beach or taking a swim. Few rainy days in Costa Blanca make it possible to enjoy these activities throughout each visit.
The recession has caused the pound to lose some of its value. Now it costs holidaymakers 20 percent more to book the same holiday as it has in previous years. It is having a direct effect on the hotels and tourist attractions in Costa Blanca. It has lost a fifth of the visitors who used to travel from Europe.
Costa Blanca tourism is being revamped to meet the needs of holidaymakers. They need to remain competitive with their pricing and their appeal to visitors. They depend on holidaymakers as a major part of their economy. Towns that once depended on farming and fishing now depend mainly on tourism to survive.
Cheap Holidays To The Costa Blanca
The good news is that despite the falling value of the pound, the British are not willing to give up their holiday trips that easily. It takes a little digging and creative planning, but holidaymakers can find good deals and are still able to afford their Spanish holiday.
The trend for British holidaymakers taking fewer trips to Costa Blanca isn't expected to last. Brits are used to taking frequent holidays. It is something that is a part of their lifestyle and that isn't expected to change. Holidaymakers are more likely to search for cheap holidays to Costa Blanca than to give them up completely. They are booking more all inclusive trips. They look for other ways to cut costs without sacrificing their trips altogether. And the Costa Blanca will be hoping to welcome them next year.
