Spain’s Costa Blanca: The 200 kilometers of shoreline in the province of Alicante make up the “White Coast” of Spain, a destination already very popular with visitors and expatriates from the United Kingdom. Though based around the beach resorts of Alicante, Benidorm and Altea, the whole coastline is dotted with vacation resorts and hotels in every price range. Though maybe a bit too touristy for some tastes, the region is clean, friendly and easily accessible. English is widely spoken, but there are still plenty of opportunities to practice your Spanish skills. Try CostaBlancaSpain.org for tourist info.
