The region of the Costa Blanca can be a rowdy and noisy place during the summer months, but you should not let this put you off if you are looking at the island as a destination for a tranquil retirement. For a start there are some wonderful properties available, you can take a look at the great range of La Zenia properties for sale for some of the many beautiful and luxurious private villas and apartments the Costa Blanca offers.
You will find there are many owners renting and selling luxurious apartments and villas all over the Costa Blanca region. Staying a little bit away from the centre of the town will afford you peace and quiet, and you will often have a private swimming pool for your personal use. Slightly out of town accommodation is also a good option for people who have young children; as well as avoiding the party-goers coming back to the hotel at dawn, you will be able to prepare your own meals, which is ideal if you have fussy children that do not want to eat strange food.
Things to do in the Costa Blanca
the Costa Blanca enjoys an almost ideal climate. It is wonderfully warm in the summer months, and the winter months are very mild. This means visitors to the island as well as residents can enjoy a wide number of activities all year round.
Of course sunbathing is top of the list for many people who come to the island for a summer vacation, but if you are not the type who likes to laze around on sandy Mediterranean beaches you will find plenty of other activities that will interest you while living on the Costa Blanca.
Water sports like parasailing, waterskiing, diving and jet skiing are available on many of the island’s main beaches. Other adrenaline-inducing activities include off-road biking, or you can hire a quad bike and take a wild ride up the rugged mountains. Boat trips are also a popular summer choice.
For those who wish to be active but do not want to take to the seas or roads, you can enjoy hiking, swimming in a pool, or a round of golf.
Of course the local restaurants should not be forgotten. Like many other parts of Spain, the Costa Blanca is famous for its fresh seafood, and you can enjoy a paella or zarzuela at one of the many seaside restaurants.
