You have always wanted to live at the beach. You have dreamed about waking up to the sound of the waves and the fresh sea air. After working hard for many years, you are finally in a position to make that a reality.
Now you are faced with the question… Where? Which beach location is the best place to offer me the lifestyle I have worked towards?
The Costa Blanca has more top quality Blue Flag beaches than any other region in Spain. They are spread over a long coastline and a location that is perfect for some may not offer what you are looking for in your place in the sun. Many beach locations offer excellent facilities during summer months but almost shut down during the winter. While beaches locations are understandably more busy during the summer, the variance in some spots is much more exaggerated.
The most popular beach locations tend to offer better growth in value, more stable prices even in recession periods and are recommended for those with an eye on investment. These more popular resorts often have similar characteristics in terms of greater amenities, high quality beaches and transport links.
The Orihuela Costa is an example of a region that has stood the test of time and continues to grow in popularity. It offers a collection of excellent Blue Flag beaches, impressive marinas and watersports and family activities. The wonderful La Zenia Boulevard shopping mall has only added to the allure and value of the area while the easy links to the AP-7 motorway and both Alicante and Murcia airports make it a most convenient location.
