In the southeast of Spain you can expect 2,800 hours of sunshine a year to allow you to enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle. The southeast is one of the main tourist destinations of the Mediterranean and one of the areas most sought-after by buyers and investors looking for a second home in Spain.
The world leadership position of this area of the Mediterranean as a destination for residential tourism area is easily understood if we consider its almost 500 km. of coastline along the Alicante and Murcia coasts, full of white-sand beaches, idyllic coves and spectacular cliffs, some 2,800 hours of sunshine a year, an average annual temperature of 19ºC and modern infrastructures.
In Costa Blanca North and in the south of Costa Cálida, with a more mountainous landscape, there is a predominance of cliff and coves, and the residential areas offer spectacular panoramic views of the sea. The best-known city in this area is Benidorm, but the towns of Altea, Villajoyosa, Calpe, Javea, Denia and Mazarrón in the south are also very popular.
In Southern Costa Blanca and the most northern area of the Costa Cálida the landscape is mainly flat, characterised by palm-tree groves and long white-sand beaches. Its main towns are Santa Pola, Guardamar, Torrevieja, Orihuela Costa, Los Alcazares and La Manga del Mar Menor
